Diamond Bridal Gallery uses only experienced professionals for your alteration

Alterations may be necessary to make your gown fit perfectly and conform smoothly to your body.

Things to Consider: Alterations usually require several fittings. Allow four to six weeks for alterations to be completed. However, do not alter your gown months before the wedding. Your weight may fluctuate during the final weeks of planning, and the gown might not fit properly. Alterations are usually not included in the cost of the gown. Additionally, taking your dress for an alteration during peak wedding season can greatly affect your alteration timeline.

Shoes, bra, and the other accessories should be purchased before you go for your wedding dress alterations. You should consider making some modifications to your gown such as shortening/lengthening the train, customizing the sleeves/waist.

What is the Bustle?

Wedding dress bustles are intended to help you move around more freely with a long train. Bustles can also give your wedding dress a different look and protect it from fabric abrasion and mis-steps from your guests.

Bustle style: The French

The French Bustle is very popular and is great for most wedding gowns with lengthy trains. The bustle is secured with ribbons on the inside of the dress, and can have anywhere from two to twenty five different points. Here is few samples:
