To make sure your gown doesn’t slip and have everything in the right spots you should see a dressmaker. You want to get your alterations done with someone that you feel comfortable with and confident that they will produce what you are after. Whatever the alteration is from taking in or a hem to be shorten the gown should look like it hasn’t been touched. A good dressmaker looks from the top to the bottom of the gown checking that everything is in the right spot. Most gowns come without a bustle? (When the train is lifted up with button and loops so you can dance and walk around at your reception) so when you are at the dressmaker getting your bustle done they can check the rest of gown.

I usually start alteration 8-12 weeks out from your wedding with 3 fittings but if your gown arrives closer to your wedding don’t worry

1st fitting
Discuss what you are after and how it will be achieved. Start Pinning

2nd fitting
The gown should be stitched/tacked and checking what was discussed at the 1st fitting. Making sure everything is in the right spots

Final fitting
Usually the week of the wedding. The gown should be all finished off and pressed. Check that everything is perfect for the gown. Show your girl/s how to get you dressed and where the bustle/s are.

There are always exceptions if you gown arrives closer to your wedding or you need to fly out you can always work something out.

Altering a wedding dress is different from taking a pair of jeans up. You need someone with knowledge and skill to make your gown sit and look amazing
