What do wedding dress alteration services include?

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.

Altering the hem

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.

Altering the side seams

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!

Altering the neckline

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!

Other special alterations

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!

Florist for wedding in Docklands


Docklands VIC, Australia

14th Jun 2023

Looking to find the perfect someone to be able to put some lovely flowers and table pieces and bouquets together for our wedding on June 30 in Docklands. 5 x table pieces 1 x wedding bouquet - white roses and tulips or something similar if possible 3 x bridesmaid bouquets - black or dark roses if possible 1 x white rose button hole 3 x black rose button hole We would prefer gold roses as it’s a winter wonderland theme. Would really like tulips in the bouquet and/or centrepieces but understand they droop really quickly so don’t know how feasible that would be. Would ideally like low centrepieces so we don’t block people from speaking to each other across tables. Would prefer simple rather than bright but If you could send some ideas if possible that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. - Due date: Needs to be done on Friday, 30 June 2023

Seamstress -vintage wedding dress modernisation


South Yarra VIC, Australia

30th Aug 2022

I have a vintage wedding dress (I think it is Satin or Silk) The material is beautiful but I would love to transform it into something a bit more modern. To keep - the buttons at the back (or some at least) - the full skirt The main part I'd like altered/ changed is the top half. I was thinking of getting rid of the sleeves and lace. Maybe a square neckline or halter would be possible? I need your expertise and suggestions! I live in South Yarra VIC. Open to all cost-effective suggestions. As I would be only wearing it once, I don't want to spend a fortune! Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Due date: Flexible
