Wedding Dress Alterations

Wedding Dress Alterations

As the owner of Lucky Sixpence Bridal, it’s not just finding you the perfect dress that’s important to me. I want you to look and feel your absolute best on your wedding day!

So, to ensure your dress fits you perfectly, I also offer a wedding dress alteration service*.

All in-house alterations are carried out by me, personally, so you can be sure your dress will receive the utmost love and care.

I have been sewing for around 40 years, with over 10 years of these as a bridal seamstress, so I am well placed to make any changes to your dress that you need – whether that is just taking the hem up, or a complete overhaul!

I am fully insured for your peace of mind.

Don’t feel you have to use me, though! You are very welcome to have any alterations carried out by an external seamstress if this suits you better.

*Please note: There is an additional charge for alterations.

Booking Your Appointment

If you haven’t already discussed alterations with me, please contact me to discuss availability before booking. Thank you.

Please note: The alteration service is only available to brides who have bought their dresses from me.

Please make sure you book your first alteration appointment as soon as you decide you would like to use me. Once I have confirmed your appointment you can be sure that I have the space available to help you.

Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee I will be available until you are booked in!

First appointments should be made for around 8 – 10 weeks before your wedding date, but you can book this well in advance using the online booking system, here. Please state your wedding date in the ‘notes’ section. Thank you.

How Much Will My Alterations Cost?

All gowns are different, therefore it is difficult to give a set price for the alterations required before seeing the dress. A no-obligation quote will be given at the first fitting. To obtain a ball-park figure, please download my price list below, or send me photos of your dress with an outline of the work that is required and I will get back to you with an estimate.
