Suggestions for Scheduling Your Alterations:
An appointment is required for alterations to be made. We recommend you schedule your alterations appointment 6-8 weeks before your wedding date. Please call for an appointment 3 to 4 weeks in advance of the actual needed appointment date if you require our assistance. This will insure that you have the best opportunity of securing the appointment most convenient to your schedule
What You Will Need
It is very important that you have your undergarments (bra, slip, etc.) and shoes for all your alteration appointments. The shoes and slip will determine the length of your gown and the bra will help for the foundation of your bodice. We welcome you to look at the B.Gorgeous Store for a selection of beautiful accessories, veils and more. We have a large selection to choose from. You are required to bring all these items to every alterations appointment.
What to Expect
In general,you will have 3 alteration appointments with your seamstress. The first appointment will take about one hour and the seamstress will pin your gown in the store. The scheduling of your second appointment will be arranged by you and your seamstress during the first fitting. At your second appointment, you will see the work that has been done on your gown. If you need any finishing alterations, you and your seamstress may need to arrange 3rd appointment.
Gown and veil pressing are services that are offered by B.Gorgeous Bridal at NO charge. If someone else will be picking up your items in your place, you will need to sign a Merchandise Release form. Please fill one out at one of your appointments or call the store and one can be faxed or emailed to you. No gown will be released without written permission. At the time of your first fitting you will be asked to arrange a pick-up date to take your gown home.
Your gown balance must be paid in the store before your alterations can begin. If you do require additional alterations after your first fitting, you may incur further charges. Your seamstress will discuss this with you if this situation should arise.
The day my mother arranged for a seamstress to come into our home in order to teach us the art and precision of fine needlework, my passion for creating beautiful things was born. Since then, and for the past 30+ years, my career as a seamstress has taken me from sewing for personal use to the extend of altering and creating new designs in a variety of garments and clothing. My experience ranges from casual clothing to the most delicate wedding dresses, prom attire, and formal wear. With the wide variety of clothing available today and, what seems to limitless abilities of ordering whatever one desires in any shape or size, one may still not always find the perfect fit. With my skills and experience gained from years of working in my own business and also for other bridal salons I will not give up until I've succeeded in in making my clients feel not only beautiful but also comfortable in their attire.
