The Art of Wedding Dress Alterations

Wedding dress alteration is a specialised craft that requires precision, attention to detail, and a deep understanding of garment construction. No two bodies are the same, and a dress that may look stunning on a mannequin might need adjustments to fit your unique shape perfectly. This is where the expertise of a skilled tailor becomes invaluable.

At Cath Adam @ The Bride Shop, our expert seamstresses are dedicated to ensuring that your wedding dress fits you like a glove. From minor tweaks to major modifications, they can skilfully alter your dress to accentuate your best features and create a silhouette that flatters your body type. Whether it's adjusting the hemline, taking in the bodice, or adding delicate lace appliqués, our talented team will work closely with you to bring your vision to life.

The Benefits of Professional Alterations


Alterations allow you to customise your wedding dress according to your preferences. Whether you want to add sleeves, change the neckline, or create a bustle for easy movement during the reception, a skilled tailor can transform your dress into a unique masterpiece that reflects your personal style.

Perfect Fit

A well-fitted dress enhances your confidence and comfort on your special day. A professional tailor will ensure that your dress hugs your curves in all the right places, providing you with the confidence to walk down the aisle radiating beauty and grace.

Attention to Detail

Wedding dress alterations involve intricate workmanship and meticulous attention to detail. From adjusting the length to ensuring that every bead and button is secure, our seamstresses take pride in their craftsmanship, ensuring that your dress looks flawless from every angle.
