Alterations


Here at The Fitting Room, we are able alter and/or redesign your gown so that it fits you perfectly and becomes the dress of your dreams! We have a list of estimate prices for alterations, which may vary based on the time and labor involved.  


Fittings are by appointment only. The shoes and undergarments you expect to wear during your event are required during each fitting.


Additional fittings are scheduled for you at the end of each appointment for your convenience.

We recommend starting wedding dress alterations 2-3 months prior to the wedding and 6-8 weeks prior for the bridal party. However, we understand availability between gown pick-up, shoe shopping, and dress completion, time can be limited.  For this reason, we will do our best to accommodate  your schedule. 


Price for alterations vary, depending dress design, style, and intricacy. 

A final estimate will be presented to you on your first fitting.

Alteration costs can vary from place to place. Frequently we hear that the alterations are more expensive than the dress and we understand that too!  Internet dresses are inexpensive, but will need the most work.  Keep in mind that your dress is ordered and mass produced overseas and sent to you based on some of your measurements. They are rarely, if ever, a perfect fit. We provide the finishing touches you need to make it yours. Higher quality gowns are more expensive but often do not require as much in alterations. 


We offer quality workmanship at a fair price. Kleinfeld's alterations start at $900 and average alterations in our area are usually $500-800.
