Finding THE Dress in a Sea of Hopelessness

 

Amongst the sea of bridal dresses, sometimes it seems hard to believe you will find the right catch. Even though, there is a sea of endless wedding gowns out there; sometimes, the fact is, your dress isn’t out there.

WAIT, WHAT?!

Yes, you heard me correctly. Sometimes your PERFECT dress is not out there. But, no worries at all, that’s why you have us! Sometimes what stands between you and THE dress, are a few customizations to make it just right!

 

This was the case for our sweet bride Jill. Jill found what she felt was her dress, but it wasn’t quit yet, THE dress. In her mind she had always envisioned a beautiful lace sleeved gown for her Fall Wedding. Well, the designer, Maggie Sottero, agreed to sell some of the beautiful lace off of Jill’s gown and POOF! We were able to structure a custom lace sleeve to Jill’s gown and all of the sudden it went from a dress Jill had bought to, THE dress Jill was going to begin her Happily Ever After in! (YEAH! Time to start her Dallas Bridal Gown Alterations!)

 

So, while you may not always find exactly what you are looking for when shopping, there may still be other options. The key is to keep a creative mind, leave all options open and ALWAYS ask lots of questions to your stylist.

 

So this Valentine’s Day when you are desperately searching to find the perfect wedding gown in a sea of hopelessness, remember sometimes in order to fall in love with the perfect one, you may need to make a few creative adjustments!— In need of Bridal Under Garments Only?!

What to Know About Your First Fitting

DFW Wedding Alterations

DFW Wedding Alterations

You’ve chosen the perfect dress for your wedding day, and now its time to go to your choice in DFW wedding alterations, Altered for the Altar! We have a few tips on what to know about your first fitting that you may not have thought of.

  • When you get to your first fitting, one of the first things that you’ll do is put on your dream dress. The thing is, it probably won’t fit exactly how you saw it in the store with all of the clamps on it. Don’t freak out if your dress doesn’t fit right away! That is what we are here for. Talk us through how you envision it looking, how you saw it in the store, and how you want it to look. We will be making your dream dress a reality.
  • Bring the right accessories to your fitting! Bring the veil that you plan on wearing, any jewelry, and especially your shoes so that we know your height. Be ready to look through our full inventory of the current trends in bridal undergarments. We have the largest selection on site for any bridal, seamstress, or retailer because we are the only ones who stock specifically only bridal lingerie! The undergarments that you wear on your wedding day are so important because it will affect how your dress falls and sits on you. When you come to us, we will size you for your undergarments with your dress present! This makes all the difference; you will want to have everything sized perfectly for this investment. We have nearly unlimited options for you to look at at our store for you to choose from.
  • Before or at your first fitting, we will walk through and customize a plan to fit your specific needs for all of your alterations. In total, you should have an average of 3 fittings for your DFW wedding. The first should be around 2-3 months out from your wear date. The second, about one month out, and then have your final one around 2 weeks out in order to perfect everything! This timeline is just a sample of an average timeline, but we work with any timeline! Your fitting timeline should be with your first wear date in mind, whether that is your big day or your bridal portraits.

At Altered for the Altar, we are so excited to be a part your big day! For more information on alterations or scheduling an appointment, feel free to reach out to us.
