When you’re so busy planning each aspect of your wedding, it can be difficult to know how to get the most out of your wedding dress alterations service! Here is our list of essential tips on what you can do to make the most of your wedding dress seamstress before the big day arrives.

Put Across Your Ideas

No matter how knowledgeable the seamstress, nobody can get an exact read on what you’re looking for in a wedding dress alterations service unless you tell them about your ideas and wishes. Even if you only have a vague idea about wanting a different dress length or have a detailed plan of each individual alteration you want, your seamstress can work with you to make your dress utterly perfect. Don’t be shy – we love hearing your ideas!


It’s wise to bring some of the other items you plan to wear with your dress on the day, such as undergarments, shoes, and accessories. The shoes in particular don’t have to be the exact pair you choose to wear, but try to bring a pair like the style you want to wear down the aisle. This will give you and your seamstress a better idea of the complete outfit.

Put Aside Time for Fittings

Depending on the complexity of the alterations required, it usually takes a few visits to the seamstress for your wedding dress to be perfectly altered for the altar! Alterations should start a few months in advance to the wedding with the final fitting close to the big day. At Alterations Boutique, you will be assigned a single seamstress to alter your dress from start to finish; they will organise fittings with you to make sure your dress is ideal.
