Wedding Dress Alterations The Poinsett Bride


The Poinsett Bride experience doesn’t end on the sales floor – it continues in the alterations department.

We have a team of 3 talented and skilled Seamstress-Designers who work magic in-house.

Every Fitting Appointment You’ll Need:

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.


The Perfect Fit:

At the 1st fitting, your Seamstress-Designer will adjust and pin the dress in all the right places, usually around the bodice and hips.

The Hem:

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.

The Bustle:

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:

  • American Style: created with clear buttons and loops, lifting the train over to the proper area on the back
  • French Style: created with multiple ribbons, tied under the dress for a delicate fold
  • Original Style: created to suit the dress style or the bride’s vision.


Quality & Steam

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.
