Customize your gown by adding your own personal touches!
Beyond The Veil Bridal offers many ways to customize your gown to make it your own. Here are a few design elements you may consider:
Sleeves: Add straps, caps, or sleeves to any strapless gown.
Corset Backs: Increase the size of your gown or change the look of your zipper back by adding a corset lace up back, simply as your alterations specialist to show you corset options.
Bustles: A bustle is created by elegantly draping and securing the train to the back of your gown to allow you to move freely and safely. Our experienced specialists can create the look that’s just your style, from simple and subtle to intricate and detailed.
Bows & Sashes: Add a colorful or jeweled sash to accent your waist and coordinate with your party.
Budget for alteration costs: On average wedding gown alterations cost $200 - $500. However, every seamstress is different, and depending on your gown, it could cost you less or it could cost you more.
Schedule your appointment for alterations 8-12 weeks prior to your wedding. Waiting until the last minute could increase your cost with possible rush fees.
Bring your shoes, slip, bra and all other undergarments to all your fittings.
As each gown is unique so is each seamstress. It is important you feel comfortable with the seamstress you choose. Interview your seamstress and make sure they fit with your personality. You will be spending a lot of time with them and it’s important for you to get along.
If for some reason you are unhappy with your alterations please discuss this with your seamstress.
If for some reason your seamstress cannot complete the work you are requesting…please ask them for another seamstress who they trust to complete the work.
At Beyond The Veil Bridal we want your gown to fit and look amazing; however, Beyond The Veil Bridal is not responsible for any alteration issues/conflicts; please discuss this with your seamstress.
