I went here to get 3 dresses altered. NLefashion did a great job. She made some beautiful alterations, shortening, taking in the sides, altering the neckline and removing sleeves on a dress. Would recommend NLefashion for your alteration. She also completed it on tight timelines. Great job. I’m ready for my summer weddings. :)

Several types of alterations can be made to a wedding dress, depending on your needs and the design of the dress. Here are some of the most common:

  • Hem Adjustments: One of the most common alterations is adjusting the hem. This ensures that the dress is the right length, whether you are wearing high heels or flats.
  • Taking In/Letting Out: Dresses can be taken in or let out at the seams to ensure a perfect fit. This is crucial for achieving a flattering silhouette.
  • Bust Adjustments: Alterations to the bust area can include adding cups, adjusting the bust line, or taking in the sides to ensure the dress fits well around the bust.
  • Strap Adjustments: Straps can be shortened, lengthened, or added, depending on the dress design and your comfort.
  • Adding a Bustle: For dresses with long trains, adding a bustle allows you to lift the train off the ground for easier movement during the reception.
  • Custom Changes: These can include adding sleeves, changing the neckline, adding lace or beading, or any other personalization you desire.

In North York, wedding dress alterations typically cost between $150 and $600+ and the cost of wedding dress alterations can vary widely depending on the complexity of the changes and the region you are in. Here are some factors that influence the cost:

  • Type of Alterations: Simple alterations like hemming or adjusting straps can be relatively inexpensive, while more complex changes like restructuring the bodice or adding intricate details can be costly.
  • Fabric: Delicate fabrics such as silk or lace may require more skill and time, increasing the cost.
  • Timeframe: Rush jobs can also increase the cost of alterations, so it’s best to allow plenty of time.

Understanding the alteration process can help you plan and ensure that everything goes smoothly.

  1. Initial Fitting: The first fitting usually takes place several months before the wedding. Bring your dress, shoes, and any undergarments you plan to wear. This fitting allows the seamstress to assess the alterations needed and take initial measurements.

  2. Second Fitting: This fitting, typically scheduled about six weeks before the wedding, allows for adjustments to be made and ensures the dress is progressing as expected. You may see some of the alterations in place, and further tweaks can be made.

  3. Final Fitting: The final fitting occurs about two to three weeks before the wedding. By this stage, most alterations should be complete, and this fitting ensures everything is perfect. Any last-minute adjustments can be made.

  4. Pick-Up: Your dress should be ready for pick-up a week or so before the wedding. Make sure to try it on one last time to confirm the fit.
