Always a bridesmaid?

It's that time of year again!  Wedding bells are ringing and the bridesmaids dresses are being swept off the racks onto the bodies of beauties all over the nation.  When it comes to ordering a bridesmaids dresses, one size does not fit all.  If you are ordering a bridesmaids dress online I recommend ordering a size up according to your measurements.  I have seen it happen all too often that women order the dress exactly to their measurements and end up with a too small dress.  In the world of bridesmaids dresses what you ask for isn't always exactly what you get and in the world of clothing alterations it is easier to make something smaller than it is to make something bigger.  "But Rachel, what about the pregnant bridesmaid?", you might ask.  Well, there are options for the expectant mama in the bridal party.  The most common option is to make the dress a corset back with a modesty panel to match the dress. It's easy and affordable.  Most alterations take about 2 weeks to execute, so if you need alterations on your dress make sure you plan ahead! I also offer measurements for bridesmaids dresses for just $10 by appointment.  Call or email me to set up your appointment today 928-679-0808 or
