When it comes to finding the perfect wedding dress, every detail matters, and achieving the perfect fit can make all the difference! At Bridal & Veil, we understand the importance of a flawlessly tailored gown. Our in-house alteration services are designed to transform your dress into a masterpiece that fits you like a second skin, ensuring you feel confident, radiant, and stunning on your special day.


Understanding the Process


Wedding dress alterations are a crucial step in achieving the ideal fit for your gown. It's common for dresses to require adjustments to complement your unique body shape perfectly. Our skilled team of seamstresses specializes in a myriad of alterations, from simple adjustments to intricate modifications. Whether it's hemming, taking in or letting out the bodice, or intricate lacework, we handle each alteration with precision and care.

Cost and Timeframe


Our alteration costs typically range between $400 and $700, depending on the complexity of the alterations and any rush requests. Rush alterations may incur additional fees due to the expedited timeline! 


Ideally, we recommend allowing 4-8 weeks before the wedding or bridal photo shoots for alterations. However, we understand that timelines can vary, and we strive to accommodate urgent requests. The timeframe for alterations is determined by the dress and the extent of the work required. For accurate information tailored to your needs, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our team.

In addition to alterations, we offer customization services to make your dress uniquely yours. Whether it's adding sleeves, changing the neckline, or incorporating personal touches, our team is dedicated to bringing your vision to life. Please note that customizations may involve additional fees, and we're more than happy to discuss these details during your consultation.


Not Just Our Dresses


At Bridal & Veil, we welcome dresses not purchased from our store for alterations. We understand that finding the perfect gown elsewhere shouldn't limit your ability to achieve the perfect fit. Our expertise extends to dresses from various designers and retailers, ensuring that every bride receives exceptional service, regardless of where they found their dress.
