Imagine you’ve picked out your dream dress, and the other details of your wedding are now falling into place; you and your groom have just locked down a venue, you are agreeing on flowers, and you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. There is just one problem – alterations. Having alterations done on any gown can be extremely stressful and draining on your self-esteem. What if you’ve lost/gained weight? What if it is not as poofy as you remember? What if you see the dress and realize you made the wrong decision?

It is important to remember during this time that alterations are for your own good. Unless you are a supermodel, this will be the most photographed dress of your life and you deserve to have it fit every curve perfectly. Don’t stress over numbers or sizes – bridal fashion is notorious for being sized extremely small.

Having a perfectly-fitting gown can enhance your entire wedding day. You won’t have to worry about tripping over fabric, tugging at sleeves all night, or feel self-conscious about the fit of your dress. You won’t struggle to sit down, eat, breathe, or dance!

So, take your alterations to a professional. They will take your dress to the level you deserve and ensure the perfection of a portion of the your wedding day in the process.
