  • Wedding Dress Alteration Specialists

    We are always honoured when brides put their trust in us to make alterations to their much loved wedding dresses and garments. When you visit us with your dress we would suggest bringing the shoes you intend to wear and possibly the underwear too if possible so that we can fully assess your dress and give you a quote for what the changes will cost.
    We will be able to take in and let out your dress should your weight change on the lead up to your wedding and we will also be able to make changes such as altering the neckline, changing the straps or adding embellishments; whatever is going to make you feel comfortable and fabulous on your special day.
    We want you to be completely happy with the end result and will work with you until that is achieved. We will also do fittings closer to the time if they are required.

    Don’t forget about the groom! We can also do alterations on wedding suits and tuxedos, as well as dresses for the rest of the wedding party. Just let us know how we can help.

While it was being made if I had any enquiries I would message and they’d reply in a day. Such good customer service; she is so lovely and kind. Wouldn’t have picked anyone else to make my dress! Thank you.’

It looks amazing! Thank you so much, it’s everything I wanted!’
