I’m married so I understand how it feels…Your wedding day is the only day you'll be wearing your beautiful gown so you want it to be perfect.

All eyes are going to be on you so you want to feel your most gorgeous- self and be comfortable from that first walk up the aisle, all the way through to the last dance.

1.

The ones which are essential to make the dress look like it has been made especially for you. This could be shortening the hem so it’s not a tripping hazard or adjusting the bodice so it follows your body.

There are 2 types of alterations I can help you with

2.

The ones which are chosen to make a garment unique by adding a sprinkle of your own style. We can completely change the look of an outfit by altering the shape of the neckline, adding sleeves, restyling the back, adding bows, sequins, beads and lace.  Whatever it is you fancy, we can make your dress personal to you. 

THERE WERE 5 THINGS I WANTED MY WEDDING DRESS TO BE AND

I THINK YOURS SHOULD BE TOO;

  

  1. Flattering.  A shape that best suits your figure.

  2. Well-fitted.  So you don’t have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions.

  3. Comfortable.  You shouldn’t be thinking about it whilst your wearing it (apart from thinking how dreamy it is).

  4. You.  It has to reflect your individual style.

  5. Empowering.  So you want to strut your stuff down the aisle. 

There aren’t many women who can say they’re 100% confident in their skin.  If that’s you (don’t worry it’s me too) we can solve the problem. If you’ve got a part of your body you want to disguise, we can.  Equally if you want to flaunt the feature you’re most proud of we can absolutely do that too! It’s my mission to help you to realise your dream dress… a dress that you cannot wait to wear and that you don’t want to take off. 

I know that leaving your wedding dress with a complete stranger who has a pair of scissors in her hand is a big deal but you don’t need to worry.  I’ve lost count of the number of wedding dresses I’ve altered; gowns bought from designer bridal shops, outlets, the high street, online and even charity shops.  It doesn’t matter to me where the dress has come from, it’s always super-precious and will be treated with the utmost care.
