What You Need to Know About Wedding Dress Alterations

But, what do you do when you find a gown that is perfect, except for a few minor details? Alter it!


We understand just how important wedding dress alterations are! That’s why, here at Maplewood Bridal, as a New Jersey bridal boutique, we have gathered some tips to assist you with tailoring yours. If you are all set to discover some great insight, be sure to continue reading:


  • Where Should You Go? Where did you purchase your gown? If it was at a bridal boutique, they will likely offer alteration services, or can refer you to places that do. If not, or if you purchased it elsewhere, you will want to search for local alteration specialists. It would be best to take a look at their online reviews and galleries, so that you can see how they worked with other brides, as well as be able to view the quality of their services. In addition, keep cost in mind, so that you choose a specialist that complements your budget.

  • When Should You Go? It’s important to start your wedding dress alterations as soon as you receive your gown, as often it takes multiple appointments to get your gown fitted to perfection. In addition, you will want to avoid any significant changes in weight once you begin having alterations completed. So, forgo that pre-wedding diet, but don’t indulge either.

  • How Do You Prepare? You may be wondering what you will need to bring to your alteration appointment. Be completely prepared by bringing your undergarments, shoes, and accessories. This way, your dress will be fitted to what you plan on wearing on your big day. After all, each detail matters, and you will want to ensure that your presentation is showcased just as it should be.


Every bride should flaunt a gorgeous wedding dress down the aisle! These are just a few tips to assist you with having your own alterations completed.
