CUSTOM ALTERATIONS

 

As all our gowns are designed by our own team right here in Yorkshire, we are able to offer a unique in-house alterations service to all our brides.

 

Not only will we make sure your gown fits you like a glove, we also offer a wide range of custom alterations to make sure the dress you choose is your dream dress – even if it wasn’t quite there for you on the hanger.

 

If you decide to have your alterations with us, you’ll be seen by an amazing seamstress who knows every single one of our styles inside and out.  Your alterations may even be performed by the designer who created your dress!  So there really is no-one better to make your dress.

 

Add straps or sleeves, change a neckline or the length of a train… or request your dress in a different colour!  If there’s something we can do to make your gown more perfect for you, just ask our bridal advisors during your appointment.  Our amazing design team will be more than happy to discuss this with you!

BOOKING YOUR FITTING

 

When you have your alterations performed with us, you’ll have at least two fittings in the run-up to your wedding.

 

We normally want you to book your first fitting between 8-12 weeks ahead of the big day, depending on the complexity of the alterations you need.  If you would like to book your first fitting within 6 weeks of the big day, there will be a £50 rush fee applied (unless this has been specifically advised by one of our seamstresses due to pregnancy or similar).

 

We have specified alterations days in each of our boutiques, when a professional seamstress will be available to host your appointment, so we recommend booking these with your local boutique directly.  We recommend booking early if you have a specific date in mind, as our alterations days can sometimes fill up months in advance!

BEHIND THE SCENES

 

Our in-house designers are constantly working to give Elite Brides more beautiful choice of designs.

 

The first sketch and sample of every gown we sell is lovingly created in the Design Room at our head office in Yorkshire – based on the styles that are hitting catwalks around the world, but designing quality dresses for real brides and all figures.

 

It’s a really exciting process, and one we love to share with you!  Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter @elitebridaluk for more sneak peeks behind the scenes.  You never know – you might even see your own gorgeous gown being created!

BOOKING AN ALTERATION APPOINTMENT

 

We always recommend our brides allow 6-8 weeks for alterations before their wedding – which means this is when you’ll need to book your first fitting appointment.

 

If your weight is likely to change drastically within that timeframe – for example if you’re expecting a baby or planning massive weight-loss – please let your bridal advisor know this.

 

We’re usually able to book last-minute appointments at an additional cost, to give you more accurate measurements and make sure your gown fits perfectly on the day.

We recommend you book your first fitting about 3 months in advance, to make sure our seamstresses have availability.

 

Our diary for alterations can get incredibly busy, and we would never want you to miss out!

 

Our dedicated seamstresses work certain hours which may vary, so you should contact the boutique where you purchased your gown to book these appointments.
