Why Alter Your Wedding Dress?
Your wedding dress is the embodiment of your dreams, and it must complement your body shape and style. Alterations are necessary for several reasons:
Off-the-rack dresses are made in standard sizes, but your body is unique. Alterations ensure a custom fit.
Add or remove sleeves, change the neckline, or modify the length to match your vision.
If you’re losing weight before your wedding, alterations can keep up with your changing shape.
The Wedding Dress Alteration Process
The wedding dress alteration process may involve multiple fittings to ensure that the wedding gown fits you perfectly and meets your expectations. Here’s what you can generally expect:
Initial Fitting: Once your custom bridal gown is near completion, you will have an initial fitting. During this fitting, the gown will be assessed for any necessary adjustments.
Subsequent Fittings: Depending on the complexity of the design and the fit, you may have several additional fittings. These fittings allow the designers and tailors to make precise alterations to ensure the gown fits flawlessly.
Final Fitting: The final fitting is the last step in the alteration process. At this stage, the gown should fit you perfectly, and any minor adjustments or finishing touches will be made.
Delivery: After the final fitting and all necessary alterations are completed, your gown will be delivered in perfect form, ready for your special day.
It’s important to maintain open communication with the designers and tailors throughout the alteration process. Share any concerns or preferences you have regarding the fit and style of the gown. Naama and Anat Haute Couture’s team of professionals will work diligently to ensure that your gown fits flawlessly on your wedding day and feels comfortable as well.
