Top Wedding Dress Alterations related questions

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!

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!

A seamstress to convert wedding dress to jumpsuit (skirt to trousers)

£100

Lower Morden, Greater London

13th Jul 2022

I had my wedding dress made for me and as I will not get any further use out of it as it is, would like to convert the skirt part of the dress to trousers so that the whole garment becomes a jumpsuit. The skirt is 4 layers of chiffon, so some could be removed. The dress was walked through sandy vineyards, so the material is quite dirty, but much of it will be cut off in order to get the right leg length. I would also like to have it dyed (colour TBC). - Due date: Before Friday, 5 August 2022
