Enjoy flexible gown or dress fitting appointments no matter where you bought your gown or dress. Alterations and Beyond is available to expertly handle your alteration needs. You are treated with personal attention and we are dedicated to providing quality custom work for your wedding day attire.
What to Expect from the First Fitting to the Last:
You can expect personal one-on-one attention. One person will be scheduled at a time - if more then one in your wedding party, please us know in advance! We will be happy to meet with your wedding party.
First Fitting: When you arrive for your first fitting you have the proper undergarments, petticoat and shoes you are intended to wear with the dress. These items affect the fit of the dress. The height of the heel, fullness of the petticoat will make a difference in the hem length. The bra you are going to wear will affect the way the top fits. These items are important and must be brought with every fitting.
Second Fitting: On the second fitting, we will have you try on the dress and check the alterations that were done. Some hems will be basted up to check on the length. Trims and beads may not be replaced or may be basted in place until the final fitting so we can make adjustments if needed. Once we have the dress fitting properly, then we will trim the seams and sew on the beadwork and trim. Then usually will have a third fitting to make sure everything fits perfectly. Most dresses only need 2 fittings.
Payment for Gown and Dress Alterations At least 50% is asked at the time of your second fitting. Please pay the balance at your final fitting or when the garment is picked up. Personal checks can be accepted at least 4 weeks prior to the final fitting. After that please pay by cash. Thank you!
