Depending on the dress style, approximately 3 fittings are recommended. Fitting appointments are usually scheduled 2 months prior to the wear date (whether for bridal portraits or your wedding day).
We encourage you to bring any special undergarment desired for these fittings.
At the 1st fitting, your Seamstress-Designer will adjust and pin the dress in all the right places, usually around the bodice and hips.
We recommend bringing your wedding shoes to this fitting to ensure the hem length is to your specifications. We want every layer to be just right – in fact, perfect for your wedding day.
If your dress has a train, a bustle is definitely recommended. This prevents the train from dragging during the reception. A Seamstress-Designer will discuss the different bustle options with you.
Bustle options include:
Your dress is checked and then checked again for all trims, lace, beads etc. Only then is the dress steamed and hung on a bust form to maintain the perfect shape ready for pick up.
