Bridal Gown Alterations

The gowns have many layers and each layer has to be altered separately. 

We prefer to get started on gown alterations 2 to 2.5 months out from the wedding.

Alterations Costs

How much do Bridal Alterations Cost?
There is no definitive answer to the cost of wedding gown alterations. Here are some things to consider:

1. Cheaper is not always better. If the cost sounds too good to be true, it is.

2. Beading and lace will always cost more.

3. We need to remind you of the importance of maintaining your body size and weight when ordering a dress and during the alteration process. It is always best if your weight remains stable when ordering your dress. Significant changes may require a costly redesign of the dress instead of simple alterations. Once alterations have begun, any fluctuations in your weight will necessitate further adjustments, incurring additional costs.

4. There is no way to get a price quote over the phone. Make an appointment and go in to visit the seamstress. Not all bridal seamstresses are created equal. If you are not comfortable with the seamstress, find someone you do feel comfortable with. You will be working with this person for 2 to 3 months through this process.

5. Get a solid final price before letting someone start work on your dress. At the Couture Seamstress the prices do not change part way through the process. Please remember, however, if you request an alteration that was not included in the original quote your price WILL change.  Be sure to ask what those additional charges will be.
