It's best to have your wedding gown altered at least two months before your wedding. You wouldn't want to come in for a fitting sooner than that as bodies can often change over time. Booking an appointment late, however, may not give enough time for your alteration specialist to do your requested alterations. Also, it's best to have your final fitting two weeks before the big day to ensure that everything fits perfectly.
It all depends on you! If it would make you feel more comfortable and confident, you can. But there's no need to pressure yourself to do so! After all, alteration services are here to make sure your dress fits you flawless so that it flatters your physique no matter your body shape or type. If you decide to lose weight, please consult your physician or dietician to make sure you're doing it healthily.
You can always get a wedding gown in your actual size for good measure. If you're unable to find one, you can purchase a dress that's at least two sizes bigger since tailoring down a larger dress is easier than readjusting a smaller one. However, you shouldn't get an oversized off-the-rack dress either. Altering larger dresses can be very difficult, and it'd be challenging to maintain the integrity of its design.
You should bring your bridal shoes and nude-coloured undergarments that you intend to wear for your wedding. Doing so ensures that every measurement is as exact as it can be, and to see if everything, from head to toe, goes well together. You can also bring your accessories and photos of your make-up and hairstyle pegs so you can visualise your overall look better.
It usually takes about an hour to complete one fitting session. Generally, you'll need to undergo three fittings. The first one is for pinning and tailoring the wedding dress. Meanwhile, hem, neckline, side seams, and waist alterations are done on the second fitting session. The third session is for you to try on the dress to make sure you're delighted with how it fits!
You can hire someone to dry clean your wedding dress before your special day! On our platform, you can find Taskers who specialise in wedding dress preservation and can create a unique treatment plan for your wedding dress. You can also decide to avail their services after the wedding to get rid of the stains and to make it look good as new!

Bridal alterations near you cover wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, and other bridal garments. Alteration experts can make sure that you and your bridal entourage look and feel fabulous with your attire as you pose for your wedding photos or dance the night away with your spouse!
You wouldn't want to deal with unexpected dress mishaps on your special day, especially after planning every detail of your wedding carefully for months. Ergo, it's essential to get the necessary alterations at least weeks before your wedding date.
Most brides opt for longer wedding gowns to look more elegant and ethereal. However, if you were able to spot an off-the-rack wedding gown and prefer it shorter, an alteration expert can easily adjust its hem to suit your height or style better. A shorter hem is also more manageable with lesser chances of you tripping and ruining your dress altogether. On the day of your alteration appointment, you can choose to wear your wedding heels so your Tasker can figure out the right hem length for you.
Naturally, there's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all wedding gown as each body is built and shaped differently. Altering your wedding gown's side seams can easily help accentuate your body shape and make your silhouette much more visible. The process typically involves fitting on the hips, waist, and butt. You can also consult with your Tasker to know if it's possible to alter the dress size, and they can provide you with useful information!
From straight, v-neck, and high neck to sweetheart, bateau, and halter strap, the neckline options are pretty much endless! In case your wedding dress neckline isn't what you expected, your Tasker can also make adjustments until you find the most flawless fit.
There are many things to consider when picking a neckline, including your body type and wedding accessories. Your Tasker can give you valuable tips so you can decide which one flatters your body and style the most. Once you have your wedding gown all sorted, you can finally set aside some time to look for professionals who can style your hair and do your make-up on your big day!
Special wedding dress alterations are ideal for personalising off-the-rack or ready-to-wear bridal garments. If you want to add a unique or intricate lace pattern or a specific amount of tulle, your alteration expert can get it done for you! You can also have a personalised sleeve style, a fuller hem, or a longer train–it's all up to you!

Hello! I have had to change my wedding date so many times I have finally bought a dress second hand and secured a February 25th date for 2021. I don’t need it done by jan 1st, Airtasker wouldn’t let me set a further date into February. This is a list of things that need to be done - Dress needs breast cups added - I want to add long sleeves to this dress. - I want the dress taken out a few cms (fortunately has a good seam allowance so this can be done!) - length added (about 8-10cm added) it was prealtered and is at my ankle now. Seamstress can cut into the train as this is quite long. I feel like this is a decent amount of work and 8 weeks to go so stressing a little! If anyone has seamstress skills and feels confident they could do this, please send through a quote.

I have a strapless dress that needs to have a top added inside, either of a similar lace, or of a material in the same shade. The dress also needs to be altered at the bottom and a few beads are missing. It needs to be taken in as well. It comes with seperate optional straps with some beads from the dress on it that have come off in some areas on the dress to be sewed on where missing (only a few need to be re-added). I’d like a veil made in the same material too! Need the dress by 3rd February.

I’m looking for a very experienced seamstress who can alter my wedding dress by the 14th of December. I bought a dress secondhand and the bodice doesn’t fit well. It needs to be resized, lined and to have a back constructed or possibly a new strapless bodice made. The dress might also need to be shortened. I’m very short on time so ideally I would like to find someone who can source any extra materials.
