Bridal gowns, bridesmaid gowns, and mother's gowns are made according to the designer's standard size chart. Unless you're lucky enough to have the same dimensions as the manufacturers mannequins, you'll likely need alterations on your dress. Nearly all of our dress customers choose us for their alterations needs. We have two in-house seamstresses with over 60 years combined experience in bridal wear. 


We offer three alteration packages for our dress customers.




Let one of our experienced alteration specialists create a perfect wedding day fit. If you need any adjustments to fit, a hem and a bustle, this package includes all the work needed to be ready to wear, including a finishing steam or press.*


This packaged includes everything in our bridal package, but is perfect for the bride who won't be needing her dress hemmed. This includes a finishing steam or press. *




Perfectly priced for your maids or mom, this package includes all standard work needed on a non wedding dress and includes a steam or press* We recommend beginning alterations 6-7 weeks prior to the wedding date. 


Due to our current volume of customers we are unable to perform alterations on dresses not purchased in our boutique.  Dresses needing alterations on a rush (within three weeks of the wear date) will be billed at $50 per hour.


*Dresses requiring significant modification or with extensive detail may be billed at an hourly rate of $30/hour in addition to the package price.
