Don’t forget At LA SARTORIA we specialize in Wedding Dress Alterations!
You’ve found your gown, but it’s not quite the perfect fit…yet.
Many gowns need at least some sort of alteration, but keep in mind that your alteration issues can vary greatly, depending on where you got your gown and how many changes need to be made. But if your expectations are in order and you go to the right seamstress or tailor, you should be ready for your wedding day with a gown that fits flawlessly!
Timing Is Everything
It’s important to time your alterations right. Bring your gown in too early, and you might not end up with a proper fit. (You may lose or gain weight after your gown is altered, which could affect the dress’ overall look and fit.) Bring your gown in too late, and you run the risk of not allowing enough time to have all the changes . I recommends allowing two to three months from the time of your first fitting to your last, as an ideal timeline to make all the alterations. Also keep in mind that the amount of times you need to go for fittings depends on how much you’re getting done to the gown — on average, most brides go for three to four fittings
Who to Go to?
To us of course !? you have to go to someone who specializes in bridal gowns — Wedding gowns have so many complex details — from boning to hems and bustles — it’s best to find a professional who will have seen and worked on such gown components in the past. (Hint: Use LA SARTORIA services )
How long should it take?
Bring your dress for your first official dress fitting. This is the time you will find out how well your dress fits. Keep in mind how long you have until your wedding day. If your wedding is a month away, most likely you will not fluctuate in size or weight. So don’t ask for the dress to be taken in an entire size. This is also the time to add any extra beading, sashes, straps, crystals, pearls, etc. Your next fitting should be in about a week or so depending on what month of the year it is. At your second fitting, the dress should fit perfectly with maybe with minor adjustments. At this fitting we will talk to you about the bustle on your dress. And what is best for the style for your dress. At the final fitting, the bustle should be finished, the alterations should be done, and the dress should fit perfectly like a glove. After the final fitting it should be a few days to a week for you to receive your dress. The last thing that should be done to your dress is that the dress should be pressed or steamed so that it looks flawless on your wedding day.
We love our Brides!❤️
