Regardless of your size, height or personal style, finding a wedding dress that fits you to perfection will be a nearly impossible mission. Most of the brides have their dresses altered before the Big Day – and you will probably feel the need to do this too.
What are some of the most important things to know about the wedding dress alteration process? We have gathered some tips you should remember – so read on and find out more.
• You need perfect timing. Starting the alteration process too early may not be a good idea (because you might lose or gain weight meanwhile). At the same time, starting the entire process too late can be a tricky affair too. In general, you should allow approximately 2-3 months between your first alteration appointment and your last (but this depends on what exactly you want your seamstress to do with the dress too).
• And yes, you can do almost anything to a dress. From adjusting the length to adjusting the size, there’s almost nothing a good seamstress cannot do. For example, if you want to “renew” your mother’s dress and make it more modern, a seamstress can help you with this. However, please keep in mind that it will always be much more difficult to “upgrade” a gown’s size than to “downgrade” it.
• Last, but definitely not least, make sure you choose an alterations specialist who will actually know how to work with intricate evening formalwear. Wedding dresses are very complex and you need someone who knows exactly what to do to make your gown look flawless on you.
