Our Process

for Wedding Dress Alterations

Step 1

First Consultation

We recommend to begin your alterations 3-8 months before the date of your wedding. Your first consultation with us is free of charge! We will evaluate all that needs to be done and give you a quote at the end of your appointment. A 50% deposit will be required on this day.

Step 3

Bustle School Practice

Three weeks before your wedding we will schedule your Bustle School Practice. This is when you bring your bridal party (typically bridesmaids and moms) to learn how to bustle your dress for the day of the wedding. This is a step-by-step process that we will teach your party and practice it to ensure it goes smoothly for the big day.

Step 2

Second & Third Fitting

After your first visit, we will schedule your next fitting and any additional fittings afterward. The amount of fittings will depend on the intricacy of your dress and how much custom work we will be doing. Wedding dress alterations are a process and takes many hours and work to turn the dress into your dress.

Step 4

Pressing & Pick-up

FINALLY, it's time for pick-up! All alteration details will be completed and your dress and veil will be pressed, ready to goNervous about how to transport your wedding dress and avoid wrinkles? No worries! We will give you instructions on how to transport and care for it when you arrive at your venue. We are here for all the support you may need for your big day!

Behind the Scenes

Bustle School Practice

Creating and pinning the right bustle is an art. Every dress is uniquely different and requires a unique bustle. With our eye for design and expertise, we evaluate what kind of bustle will work best and look best with the design of your dress. We want you to be able to dance and have fun without worrying about stepping on your dress or having to hold it the entire reception. Talk about a drag!

Check out our blog to learn what happens during your bustle school appointment.

Kind Words From our Brides

"Thara did an absolutely amazing job with my wedding dress! My dress was very intricate with a lot of lace and beading, and my train was super long, and she handled it all with expertise and true craftsmanship. She did a superb job with the fitting and the bustle. It turned out perfect. I can't recommend her enough!"

Hannah Herrera, Bride, 9-14-23
