- Finding the perfect fit when wedding dress shopping can be tricky. If you can’t find that perfect fit, it is safer to go too big than too small. With alterations we can always take a dress in but adding material is difficult and you can only let a garment out so much. Take caution though, because if the gown is too big, the proportions may look odd if it’s over altered
- When going in for a fitting be sure to bring your accessories. This includes shoes, jewelry and any other garments you plan on wearing with your dress. Shoes especially because it can affect the length at which your dress will sit.
- Your last fitting should be within 2-3 weeks of your wedding date. This is to ensure that anybody changes are taken into account in the final fitting so your dress will fit the same the day you walk down the aisle.
