Alterations may be necessary to make your gown fit perfectly and conform smoothly to your body.
Things to Consider:
Bridal 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.
