A few helpful Wedding FAQs...

When should I arrange my first Wedding Fitting?

Being able to ensure your bridal gown is that perfect fit may not always be possible in one fitting. Therefore, it is best to ideally come in for your first fitting as early as possible, once you have the dress, and then we can schedule any other fittings necessary. This should be ideally a minimum of 2 to 3 months before the wedding. Depending on the amount of alterations needed and the complications they may introduce, it is always best to give the process as much time as possible in order to get your dress to that perfect desired fit.

We also do encourage another fitting as close to the wedding date as possible in order to triple-check that everything fits perfectly, you’re happy, and there aren’t any surprises concerning the fitting or the style preferred.

What should I bring to my Wedding Fitting?

When you’re ready to make your first booking, make sure you bring in the shoes (or closest equivalent to the style and height) or undergarments you will be wearing on the day to ensure everything measured sits just as well as on the day. We also encourage brides to bring in any specific accessories that may alter the look of the dress (e.g. the veil). This will help you to envision your final look much more accurately, and help us better understand what it is you’re looking for and how to help you get there.

How long does it take to alter my wedding dress?

It depends. The complexity and amount of alteration required is what determines the length of time we will require. The alteration can start at 2 weeks up to a month or so. This timing also counts for any other bridal party alterations.

How much will it cost to alter my wedding dress?

Prices concerning wedding dresses vary greatly because every wedding dress and body type is different. When you come for your first fitting, we will clarify prices with you, offer you any discounts available and talk about what is possible and what the final dress will look like. This also counts for any other bridal party alterations.

How long do the fittings take?

The booked session can range from a quick 15-20 minute fitting of pinning the length for example, to maximum a 40 minute session of discussing options if there are complications or working toward more than one major alteration.

Do I need to schedule an appointment or can I just walk in?

Even though we do walk-ins at Sew & Sew, when it comes to wedding events or any special event in general, it is always best to book an appointment. You can do so online, or call in. This will ensure we can give you our full attention and perform our best efforts to give you what you’re looking for.

Do you steam the dress?

Unfortunately, we do not steam the dress or any wedding outfits. We are solely an alterations shop. However, if you ask we can give your our best recommendations for a nearby dry-cleaners who will take good care of you.

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact us - we look forward to hearing from you!
