Are alterations included the the cost of the dress?

There is an additional charge for our seamstress service. Some clients need more alterations than others so we quote individually and you only pay for work as you need. There is no charge for storage and steaming to prepare your dress for the wedding day.

How many fittings will I need

At least two. At your first fitting the seamstress will pin your dress. She will then sew it and check it at your second fitting. You may need additional fittings if the dress then needs any further work.

When do fittings begin?

Approximately 10 to 8 weeks before the wedding. It is important to maintain your measurements once you have had your first fitting. Changing your size afterwards will result in the seamstress having to repeat her work and incur an extra charges for her time.

What if I need to rearrange my fitting?

Because her fitting schedule gets fully booked, it can be very difficult for Rita to find space on her diary to accommodate rescheduling. If you find you really do need to rearrange your fitting please give her as much notice as possible.

What do I need to bring to my fittings?

It is vital you bring the shoes you will wear on your wedding day otherwise the seamstress will not be able to work on the length of your dress. If you wish to wear a bra please bring the one you will wear on your wedding day.
