The wedding gown alterations process begins about 6-9 weeks before your event or travel date. We like to conduct two-three fittings during that time. Because we typically book up well in advance, we encourage you to get onto our "Save the date list " by filling out the contact form.
When you choose Agadesal, you are getting the best of both worlds. I am an experienced dressmaker who designs and creates couture bridal gowns. You will receive a luxury experience in my atelier and the highest quality workmanship in your gown. Whether you need standard alterations, a complete resize, or redesign, I can do it all! I take great care to equip my clients with complete information about their gown, itemized alterations, and an a la carte pricing model that keeps the bride comfortable and in control.
WHAT TO EXPECT
At your first fitting appointment, we will begin with an informal consult. We will spend some time talking through your vision for the dress.
This is when you can tell me the details of the wedding day, and share what concerns you have with the dress itself. The questionnaire you’ve filled out on my website will help me serve you better through this process!
For basic alterations, I like to book the first fitting 8-9 weeks prior to the wedding date. The final fitting will be scheduled 1-2 weeks from the wedding date, to ensure a perfect fit. My bridal services include 3 fittings, and this allows for a more relaxed experience. For gown reconstruction, or major alterations, I book 3-4 months out from the wedding date.
Please schedule your fitting appointment as soon as possible.
