From my experience, you can expect to pay somewhere between $350-$700 for your basic bridal gown alterations. Designer bridal gowns with lace, beading, and complicated hen lines may be more. Also, if you are thinking about making any custom changes, you should be prepared to pay even more.
You will want to start your alterations 2-3 months prior to the wedding. I recommend you do this for several reasons...
I always try to accommodate my clients with their time. So, if time prevails, YES!
Rush charges may vary from seamstress to seamstress. Seams to B charges $150 for any alterations started less than 6 weeks prior to the wedding.
Scheduling an appointment is simple! Call or text (619)240-2429 or email me at email@example.com.
In addition to your dress, you will need to have your shoes, and any undergarments you are planning on wearing. This will ensure your hem and fit are PERFECT!
You should plan for a minimum of three fittings. Dresses being Designed or Re-Designed should plan on at least five fittings.
I have been designing, making, and altering wedding attire for nearly 30 years.
I still recommend you begin your alterations 2-3 months before the wedding. If you lose weight, Great! Since your final fitting is usually scheduled just a couple week prior to the wedding, this would allow enough time to take the dress in if you lose weight.
You want to start alterations 2-3 months prior to the wedding. But because every gown and bride is different, I can usually work with your schedule.
YES! Seams to B would love to help. The price for a custom made dress varies in price depending on the fabric and style. It is important to remember that a custom made gown is not necessarily less expensive.
Seams to B requires 50% deposit of your total alterations to be paid at your first fitting for Wedding Gowns. The balance is due on your final fitting.
We accept cash, check (deposit only), and most major credit cards.
Tipping is always the discretion of the client. As you look through your list of vendors that require a tip and those that expect a tip (i.e. Hair and make up stylist), why would you not tip the one that has put countless hours into making your dress fit like a glove?
Seams to B does not sell Designer Wedding Dresses. Rather we focus on those "One of a Kind" Custom Gowns.
Seams to B strictly alters and custom makes Wedding Gown and Wedding Attire.
I would be happy to answer any additional questions you might have,,, ASK.
