The wedding gown alterations process begins about 6-9 weeks before your event or travel date. I like to conduct two-three fittings during that time. Because I typically book up well in advance, I encourage you to get onto my"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 relaxed and private experience in my design studio and the highest quality workmanship in your gown. Whether you need standard alterations, a complete resize, or redesign, there are no limits. I take great care to communicate all information about your gown, itemized alterations, and an a la carte pricing model that keeps YOU 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, 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. Wedding dresses require 3 fittings- this allows for a more relaxed experience. For gown reconstruction, or major alterations, booking 3-4 months out from the wedding date is recommended.
