Alterations

Alterations

Every bride who purchases a dress with us is offered an experienced bridal dressmaker, to ensure the perfect fit.  Many of our dressmaker’s have been altering bridal dresses for over 30 years and are extremely talented.  Some dresses can be customised, adding a sleeve or bespoke jacket.

We have a limited in-house alterations service, which is booked on first-come-first served basis, thus giving our brides who buy in advance the priority of using this service.  Alternatively we have three other dressmakers, based in Cambridge, Bury St. Edmunds and on our road in Newmarket.

Alterations are not included in the price of a dress as you’re paying for the dressmaker’s time, experience and skill set.  An alterations quote is given at time of sale and then more specifically at your initial appointment with the dressmaker.

If using our of our recommended dressmaker’s please allow a minimum of eight weeks for your bridal fittings.  Most brides have 3-4 fittings to ensure the perfect fit.

You are not locked into using our dressmakers, you can purchase a dress from us and source your own seamstress but we cannot be expected to rectify any mistakes they make.
