4 Things to Know about Wedding Gown Alterations
Your wedding dress should be really amazing. Of course, that might mean different things for different South Carolina brides – but if there’s one thing that’s common to all of them is that they all want their wedding gowns to look flawless on them. And you most likely make no exception from this rule whatsoever.
What are the most important things to know about wedding gown alterations? We have gathered them right below – continue reading to find out more.
It rarely happens that brides don’t need these alterations. Most of the gowns are created with an unrealistic body proportion in mind – so regardless of what your size may be, you might still need the alterations. That’s OK, doing this will help you wear the absolutely perfect wedding dress you have always wanted.
Your bridal boutique will most likely offer wedding dress alteration services too. Be sure to take the costs associated with this into account when planning your wedding dress budget! Also, if your bridal boutique cannot provide such services, be sure to ask them for recommendations. As experts who have been in the business for a lot longer than you, they will definitely know someone who does wedding dress alterations at the utmost quality.
You really need to time your last fitting perfectly. Leaving about two-three months between the first and the last fitting will allow your seamstress with plenty of time to make all the necessary alterations. Also, be sure your last fitting isn’t scheduled too far from the wedding date because you might lose or gain weight meanwhile (and there may not be enough time for new alterations).
Last, but not least, remember to prep for your last fitting appointment. Bring all of your accessories (including the veil), your wedding shoes, and even your wedding garments. Also, remember that your entourage for the fitting appointment shouldn’t be very large. You can do this on your own, or you can bring one or two very close friends whose opinion you trust with you.
