 Custom Tailor Shares 3 Tips About Wedding Dress Alterations, New York, New York

Unless your wedding dress fits beautifully off the rack, you will need to hire a custom tailor to perform alterations. Depending on the adjustments that need to be made, the changes may take some time to complete. To ensure your gown is perfect and back in time for the big day, the professionals at Wo's Custom Tailoring in Manhattan, NY, share a few helpful tips.

How to Prepare for Wedding Dress Alterations

1. When to Schedule            

Most women will have three to four fittings before the wedding date.  Allow two or three months to pass from your first session until the last to handle any alterations for weight gain or loss. That way, you ensure the tailor has enough time to make the necessary changes.

2. Bring Your Wedding Day Shoes & Undergarments

Custom TailorGetting your gown length just right also depends on your shoes. The custom tailor will alter it based on your height when you have them on. Bring them to each appointment so that you can see the full look after each session. Similarly, you should have the undergarments and accessories you intend to wear on your big day to check they fit properly and don’t negatively affect the appearance of the dress.

3. Don’t Go Alone

Whether you take your mom or your bridesmaids, it’s a good idea to bring a trusted ally who will tell you what looks good and what doesn’t. Your friend can catch problems that you may not even notice. It’s also helpful to have moral support and will make the experience more rewarding and special when you can share it with a loved one.

Make sure your wedding dress looks exactly as you want it to on your special day. Let the skilled experts at Wo's Custom Tailoring perfect your gown so that you can walk down the aisle in style. Their experienced custom tailors provide gown alterations and suit fittings for your entire wedding party.
