Though the dress is one of the most important aspects of any wedding day, with so much to organise and so many people to manage, putting off crucial wedding dress alterations is all too easy. Fitting appointments get postponed again and again, and before you know it you’re just a couple of days away from walking down the aisle and you still have got your outfit ready. To help ensure you get your dress to the tailor on time, take a quick look at this guide to timely bridal alterations.

Most brides-to-be start shopping for their wedding dresses months before their big day. Finding the perfect dress can take time, so it’s important that you give yourself a good few months to shop around for the ideal gown. Leave it too late, and you could end up with a stressful buying experience or even with a dress you’re not happy with. Once they’ve found their dress, many brides start thinking about what their entourage will wear on the day. Bridesmaids dress alterations can be done weeks before the actual wedding, giving you plenty of time to tick them off of your list of things to do.

Around a month before your wedding day you’ll want to book yourself in for a round of dress alterations. This is when the bulk of the tailoring will happen and the time that you should make any substantial changes to your gown. If you want your hem line taken up, your wait taken in or your sleeves altered in anyway, now’s the time to talk to your tailor and arrange for the work to be carried out. Hopefully at this point you’ll still have a bit of spare time to dedicate to your dress. Leave it any later and you’ll probably be run off your feet with last minute preparations.

A week or so before your wedding you’ll need to make another appointment with your tailor and arrange for the final bridal alterations to be made. By this point, you should just be looking at a few nips and tucks to allow for any weight changes in the proceeding months. These should be pretty easy to take care of and shouldn’t take your tailor too long to complete. To make sure you have plenty of time for all of the alterations you want to achieve, get in touch with a member of our team today.
