Tips for altering bridesmaid dresses…
When a bride chooses her bridesmaids, she usually asks the people she loves and cares about most in the world. They are usually friends who have been there through thick and thin, good times and bad times..
So of course, bridesmaids should feel as amazing in their own skin as the bride does on a wedding day. More often than not though, friends are all different shapes and sizes so it can be difficult to find bridesmaid dresses to suit everyone’s look and taste.
Don’t worry though, there are plenty of ways that bridesmaid dresses can be altered to compliment all different body shapes and make everyone feel fabulous.
Here at Alterations Boutique London, we offer a wide range of bridesmaid dress alterations services, so brides can make sure that every dress suits each individual down to the ground. We’re all about celebrating our differences and embracing our unique features, so you can create bridesmaid dresses that are similar but not clones of each other! Perhaps your bridesmaid dresses each need a complete restyle or they just need a few tweaks for resizing - don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Let’s have a look at some of the ways that bridesmaid dresses can be altered…
When it comes to your average friendship group, it is rare that everyone is the same height. There’s usually some tall, some tiny, but their differences are what makes them so special!
We can help you to have your hems shortened or lengthened accordingly, no problem. Why not let your bridesmaids choose the length? Some might opt for a shorter dress whereas others may prefer something more modest. As long as the colours and designs are similar, they will still tie in nicely.
Another way to alter bridesmaid dresses so that they showcase the personality of each bridesmaid is with the dress silhouette. Everyone loves different parts of their body so you could make the most of our alterations services and tailor each dress to suit each of your besties.
What could be better than all your bridesmaids feeling body confident and happy in their own skin on your big day? Someone may prefer a figure-hugging long dress where another might love a shorter shift style dress. We would love to help with full bridesmaid dress restyling to make everyone feel a million dollars.
Another aspect that bridesmaids might have individual preferences on is the neckline. It is quite common for bridesmaids to be a variety of ages, so it is natural for some to want their dresses to be more grown up and others needing the opposite. There are a variety of alteration options available to transform any neckline.
Hopefully now you feel inspired to get creative with your bridesmaids dresses, whenever the time comes. Even though it’s the bride’s big day, you want everyone around you to be feeling their best too.
You don’t have to worry about your bridesmaids looking too different either, if you use our bridesmaid dress alterations service we would be happy to advise you on styles and alterations that would work - we have plenty of experience in doing so. As long as bridesmaid dresses are the same colour, fabric or at least have the same types of embellishment, they will still look like a bridesmaid gang.
