Ballgowns, Bridal and Beyond do not do alterations, but we do recommend an expert dressmaker, Adelle from Sew-Fit. Sew-Fit and Ballgowns, Bridal and Beyond have a close working relationship but are separate entities. For ease of access and the convienience of the clients, Adelle has an agreement with Ballgowns, Bridal and Beyond to book and use space at their premises for fittings, during the alteration process.
Adelle can expertly alter your wedding dress for your big day, or your gown for your big event. To personalize your gown maybe as little as shortening a shoulder or bring up the hem.
Sometimes we have brides who want to add shoulders, add sashes of different colours to match bridesmaids, make up boleros or capes, add in sleeves, even add lace applique to gowns to make them individual to their own personality. If your church wedding requires you to be very modest in your gown, there are ways to have a beautiful wedding dress but be a little more covered.
Alterations generally need to be done 3-4 weeks before your wedding day or event and they usually take about 1-2 weeks to accomplish. You will need to bring along your shoes and underwear to your fitting.
Costs are varied and will be quoted by Sew-Fit at the initial consultation.
There is no expectation or requirement for customers to use Sew-Fit for your dress alterations. You are free to take your gown to whomever you wish.
