Our business specializes exclusively in altering new wedding dresses and restyling of vintage and pre-loved bridal gowns with the highest technique and top quality finish. We love to bring the old style into the trends of today without losing the integrity of the era it came from.
Whether your dress is new or pre-loved, here you can find some valuable failproof information, that will help you throughout your fitting experience.
Your Initial appointment would need to be scheduled about 6 to 8 weeks before your wedding date. At least 2-3 fittings are required for a perfect fit, and you should allow 2-3 weeks between each fitting.
Bringing your chosen underwear to all your fittings is essential, however, we recommend that you don’t purchase lingerie before your first appointment as it may not be suitable for your dress.
It is important that a decision “which shoes to wear” is made before the second fitting to ensure that the hem-line is fitted perfectly.
The first fitting
During this appointment, the overall fit is looked at and the solutions are found. On average, this takes about 20-30 minutes depending on the design.
The second fitting
This step gives an idea of the final look, and we make any additional adjustments before completing the final alterations and length is usually pinned during this visit.
The third fitting
It’s also called final or pre-collection. During this fitting we double-check that your wedding dress fits you perfectly, and if no more adjustments are needed, we complete the final touches on your dress steaming, replacing beading etc
We also offer an express-service for the brides who travel for their fittings from other parts of Ireland or even abroad and don’t have a lot of time to allow for their fittings. In this case alterations can be completed in one week for an extra charge.
It is not easy to find a dress with the details you have always dreamed of ... Can't find it? We can help! Whatever you are looking for, we can create it for your perfect outfit.
