Wedding Dress Alterations in Toronto, Etobicoke, Mississauga and Barrie

Many times for a not custom made bridal gown, wedding dress alterations will be required to some extent. Every bride wants to look especially beautiful on her wedding day. So it is necessary to get a professional help to get your alterations done. Furthermore, it is crucial to give as much importance to dress alteration, as to the selection itself.

Here are some tips about wedding dress alterations which you may find useful:

Timing Is Everything
It's important to time your alterations right. If you bring your gown in too early, you might not end up with a proper fit, as you may lose or gain weight after your bridal gown has been altered. If you bring your gown in too late, you run the risk of not allowing enough time to have all the changes done. It is recommended to allow six to eight weeks before the wedding for the alterations since it's a complex and time consuming work.

Where to go?
Most reputable bridal shops usually offer alterations. Be aware that your local dry cleaner might not know the intricacies of wedding dresses. Wedding gowns have so many complex details from boning to hems and bustles, it's best to find a professional who has years of experience in restyling and alteration of bridal gowns. Usually bridal shops offering alteration services are the best option since they have the expertise and the experience.

What to Bring?
When coming for alterations, do not just bring your wedding dress, also take your undergarments, shoes, and accessories to your fittings as well. You should have your undergarments and shoes on hand in order to obtain the proper fit and length of your bridal gown, and your hair accessories or veil will help ensure you've got the right balance. Advice: begin looking for your shoes, accessories and undergarments (bra and slip) immediately after purchasing your dress.

Who to Bring?
It is great idea to have your mom or friends and family that helped you select your dress to accompany you to your fittings. It's important to have the same pair of eyes tell you how the dress looks after each fitting. And because your maid of honor will need to know how to create the bustle, it's a good idea to bring her to your last fitting so she can learn how your gown works.

What is the cost?
Because the options for alterations are nearly endless, the cost of alterations depends upon the style of the dress, the fabric and the complexity of work.
