Arranging Your Wedding Dress Alterations in Sydney – Cakewalk? Think Again!

Do you watch romantic movies? If you do, you’ll notice nearly in every movie a scene where the bride tries out a host of different dresses. The scene ends where the bride finds “The One” and the next scene you see her walking down the aisle looking beautiful in the dress. Unfortunately, the reality is far from it as settling and buy a gown is only half the battle. One of the most crucial aspects of your preparation for the big day is wedding dress alterations in Sydney. Some would say, this is even more important than the dress itself.

It doesn’t matter whether you have an hour glass figure or have a few extra pounds in all the wrong places, altering your wedding dress is almost inevitable.

Time and Tide Waits for No Bride

These days finding a good seamstress is difficult so don’t be surprised if they are booked up weeks or even months in advance. Precisely for this reason, start early on so that you can give yourself plenty of time. It’s something which you shouldn’t consider weeks before your wedding; you should consider it even before you buy your dress.

There’s no such thing as standard sizes

You might have a great figure, but it’s not unusual to find the same dress vary from one manufacturer to another. Different manufacturers have different sizing systems. So don’t be surprised if you bought a dress thinking of one shape and got another one.


It’s way better in than out

Ask any seamstress, and they will tell you that taking a dress in isn’t that tricky but on the other hand, taking it out is not so easy. If the dress is stretched out, some of its delicate fabric can easily fray and it can before extremely hard to hide the original stitching. When in doubt stay on the side of caution and go one size up.

Don’t forget your undergarments

What you wear under your dress will definitely have an effect on how your wedding dress looks and feels. While trying on your wedding dress, take your undergarments into account. This will also give you an opportunity to try your bridal lingerie and see if you are comfortable in them or not.

Be extremely sure before you alter

Most stores have a very strict policy about returning a dress or exchanging it. Precisely for this reason, make sure that you are happy with your dress before you go for bridal alterations in Sydney. If you need to return a dress, it must be in the same state as it was purchased. Stores will never take back altered clothes.
