Please contact us 3 months prior to your wedding date if possible. Summer appointments fill up quickly!
We will assess what needs to be done and pin it. We want to do everything that we can at this time so be sure to bring everything. Definitely bring your shoes or at least a shoe with the same heel. Also bring any special undergarments you will be wearing with the dress(i.e.strapless bra or bustier, shape wear such as Spanx). We do have sew-in bra cups available(usually best suited to someone smaller busted).
This is where we check what we've done so far. We will be checking the hem so you will need to make sure to bring your shoes and crinoline slip if you are wearing one. If there are significant changes(losing weight etc.) we may decide to schedule a 3rd fitting, if not we will schedule a pick up date and time.
Have you purchased a sample gown or a gown that was previously worn?
If your dress needs to be dry cleaned, this needs to be done before we begin the alterations process. There are risks to the dress with the cleaning process that you need to be aware of ahead of time. The dress may be damaged in some way (texture changes or shrinkage of fabric, beading damaged, etc.) and so it is important that anything that may happen, happens before the dress is altered. We would hate to hem the dress and then end up with it too short after it is cleaned. So, be sure take care of cleaning soon after purchase of your gown.
Out of town, pregnant etc. -Please tell us about any special circumstances as it may affect the timing of the fittings.
