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!

Atm I am just trying to see if the alterations that I would like to get done on a beautiful wedding dress are possible. I uploaded a picture where I drew in what I was thinking as well. I would like to change the neckline to a halter/ or just higher closed if halter isn’t possible. I would like to cut the arms off (simply bc it’s too warm and I would like to change them to the one which you can take on and off(also an example photo) if fabric isn’t needed for the extension of the neck line. I would also like to take some fabric away from underneath simply bc it’s heavy fabric and it gets quite warm underneath, I don’t know how you would do that. It’s also a size 16 and I am a 12-14, so it needs to be smaller as well. We can talk about everything on the phone. - Due date: Flexible

Alterations on my wedding dress and skirt - it needs to be shortened and taken in, and it’s a little long for my torso. I’d also like it taken in at the back to add some shape. Happy to talk on the phone if that helps! My wedding is on 22 April.

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.
