Bridesmaids - When to Book

Hello Bridesmaids! Thank you for choosing to schedule your alterations with me. I know being a bridesmaid can be an investment both in both money and time, so I aim to keep the process simple for you. If you are scheduling during the off season months of November through March, I request only 1 - 2 weeks before the wedding date to complete your alterations. If you are scheduling during the peak season months of April through October, I request at least 3 - 4 weeks before the wedding date to complete your alterations. If you are traveling for a destination wedding, take this into consideration when booking your initial appointment. Exceptions may apply. If you are not sure or are in a time crunch, please email me at

Bridal Alterations Take Time

Please schedule your initial bridal alterations appointment 8-12 weeks ahead of the date you need it. If you need the dress done in under 8 weeks, I will apply a rush fee Of $100. If you are traveling and can not make appointments before your wedding, take that into consideration when you schedule your appointments. I want to give you my best work, so give me the time I need to make your alterations great!
