Restyling

Let us help you bring the past in to the present. Breathe life in to your favorite garments by having them re-styled in to an updated, on-trend look. Gorgeous wedding gown hanging in your closet? Consider converting it in to a cocktail dress. We've even had brides create a custom christening gown for their new little family members.

Over-dying

With a bit of creativity, time and patience, we can take your existing bridal gown and over-dye it so that you can wear it again.  A consultation is required for us to determine if it can or cannot be done and for price to be determined.  For a fee we can have a portion of the garment dyed to see if it can become the color you are hoping for. Dying starts at $400 and will go up from there depending on the layers and content of your garment, there is no guarantee for dying and garments will 100% shrink and wrinkle after the dying process.

Day of Wedding

One of our goals is to create a safe and supportive environment for our overwhelmed brides in The Dress Doctor showroom, and want you to feel that same sense of security on the day of your wedding. 

We have partnered with Julie Sabatino of The Stylish Bride to make sure you're "dressed, styled, and down the aisle."

We will send a fitter on location to assist with dressing bridal parties and groomsmen, steaming gowns and tuxedos, tying bustles, sashes, bows and bowties, and any emergency sewing. We're happy to work behind-the-scenes by assisting with photos, attending to personal needs, or simply providing moral support on one of the biggest days of your life.
