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 anything that will affect the fit of your dress. This includes: your shoes, shapewear, and a bra option . We do have sew-in bra cups available, these are best suited to someone B-cup and smaller (check out the FAQs for more information on choosing a bra).
At this appointment we will check all of the changes made to your gown. It is important to remember to bring your shoes, bra, and shapewear to this fitting as well. If there are significant changes (weight loss, design changes, 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.
