The Basics

Wedding Gown Alterations
$400 & UP (average $650-$850)

This package includes our signature ALTERED CONTOUR fit. The ALTERED CONTOUR is our exclusive approach to fitting the gown throughout your bust, waist and hips to achieve the perfect silhouette. Also Included: Hem, Bustle, Full Final Press + Pack into bust form & temporary transport bag, all fittings, and of course your personal AFTA hype girls! Most #AFTABrides will spend between $650-$850. Ruth & Rylee will work with you at your first fitting to address ALL fit concerns and your VISION for the gown. After the first fitting we will provide you with a total quote and full payment is due at that time. Why is full payment due at the first fitting? Because, once you are an #AFTABride we are ALL IN! TEAM AFTA will be your personal HYPE girls & make sure you have EVERYTHING you need to make your walk down the aisle absolutely PERFECT! We take great PRIDE in our craft and ALWAYS stand behind our work. We aren't happy unless YOU are! LET’S DO THIS!


In an effort to be completely transparent and open, we dedicate ourselves to educating a new bride on the alterations process & pricing through our website and social media. As well we have to awesome AFTA Team members, Juli & Kaitlyn, up front ready to help answer any additional questions you may have via email, call or text! If you are still wanting to do a consultation first we are happy to do so! This fee is for the appointment time if you choose NOT to stay with us, although we really HOPE you will! Brides who stay and become an #AFTABride will not owe consultation or fitting fees.
