I typically recommend beginning bridal alterations 6-12 weeks prior to the event date. If your alterations involve major design changes that require multiple fittings, then we can start as soon as you have your gown, shoes and undergarments. I do also recommend preparing to have a designated person in your wedding party or family to attend a fitting to learn how to bustle your gown.
Full traditional bridal fitting, hemming and bustling generally start at $750. however there is no minimum for minor modifications. The cost of gown alterations can vary significantly depending on your dress’s number of layers, lining, under structure/boning, lace, fabric, cut, hem, finish, buttons, zippers, belt, corset, bustle, train. To request a quote for you gown please email a photo or link to your dress, along with your wedding date and a list of your anticipated alterations to firstname.lastname@example.org

CUSTOM WEDDING GOWNS & EVENING
I do offer made to measure gowns. Depending on the cost and style gowns typically start at $5,000 and up- not including the cost of fabric. This will include 3-4 fittings, including one with a muslin prior to cutting the fabric.
Depending on the style of gown you have, a veil that is custom made can add but not distract from the style of your gown. I offer trim sourcing, hand bead work as well as both silk and regular tulle to create the veil of your dreams. I do also have a back stock of veils and accessories at my studio.
