PRICES AND FEES
As each formal gown or garment is different, price estimates can vary widely. For estimates best suited to your gown, please contact email@example.com.
Payments can be made in cash and check with no additional fee, and by credit card with a 3% additional fee. Checks only accepted at first fitting, not at second/pickup appointments.
50% of your total alterations bill will be due at your first fitting.
While the schedule is extremely flexible to meet your needs, alterations needing completion within two weeks of the first fitting are subject to a $25 rush fee for non-bridal, and a $50 rush fee for bridal.
Wedding gown alterations should begin about 2to 3 months before the wedding (or the date at which you leave for the wedding's location). If you tend to fluctuate in weight, aim for a shorter time period of 2 months before the wedding so that your body’s shape will be as close as possible as it will the day of the wedding.
If you are planning to make a major change to your gown such as adding custom sleeves, specialty accent fabrics, or something of the like, please plan for your fitting on the earlier side of 3 months ahead of the wedding as more fittings are usually needed. Don't hesitate to ask any questions if you're nervous or unsure! Shoot them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
