Bridal Alterations

We can fulfill any bridal needs you have: from restyling your grandmother's gown in to a stunning, modern work of art, to custom designing the wedding gown of your dreams. Our expertise isn't just for the bride-to-be: we can outfit your entire wedding party - bridesmaids, flower girls, mothers of the bride and groom, and any attendants. We'll even create personalized accessories to make your day extra special: boleros, sashes, veils, shawls, wraps, headpieces, proper undergarments, "something blue" embroidery, and custom made flowers.

 

Bridal Gown Alterations: $300-1,000 and up

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.

 

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.
