For a  fast response, text me with your wedding date and what you think needs to be done to your gown.

I appreciate your interest in my work.  I would like to give you a rundown on how these types of alterations work. It usually takes two to four months from your first fitting until the completion of your wedding gown. I will schedule your second and final fitting/pick up at your first consultation. If it is minor alterations, you will only have a First and Final visit. Average price range is between $500-$800, which includes your consultation and all fittings, also  I will press and steam the gown on day of pick up. Depending on the gown, sometimes the price can be under $500. If your wedding is less than 10 weeks away, there will be an additional $100 charge for rush alterations. And for you ladies that like to plan ahead, if you have a place to store your gown after completion and feel comfortable about maintaining your weight, we can get started as soon as you are ready. Take a look at my booking link to see if you can find a day and time that works best for you. Sometimes I will have days/times available that are not shown, feel free to ask. You are able to book at least 1 year in advance. Fittings usually take between 30mins-1hr. I block of 2hrs for personal time. Please go to my contact page to message me with any questions you may have.  I look forward to working with you.

Bridal Alterations for women.
If you can imagine it, I can create it.

My client bought this beautiful gown from Vow'd in North Hills Raleigh NC. She wanted to make the train shorter. This gown has horsehair wire on the hem of the outer layer of fabric. Horsehair Wire is pretty common in wedding gowns today. This video shows how I brought her vision to life.

This video is of 3 different bustle styles. I make these videos for you to reference before bustling your train after the ceremony and pictures are complete.  

Now this was fun! My beautiful client wanted to wear her mothers 1980's wedding gown to her rehearsal dinner.  She asked me to bring it back to life, you know, give it a heartbeat. I enjoyed this transformation so much. I was able to be creative without going overboard and hardly any stress.  You can see how excited she is about the outcome, just as much I am.  These "custom orders" are not always this easy.  Sometimes it can take me several months to achieve perfection (especially budget friendly). All i can say is, I love it, it was fun and very exciting.
