Alteration & Preservation

How It Works

At Wedding Inspirations, we value quality craftsmanship which is why we have experienced, professional seamstresses to do your alterations. They specialize in bridal, evening & special occasion attire. We welcome our valued clientele, as well as, outside purchases. Our seamstresses work independently & are not employees of Wedding Inspirations. The seamstress is responsible for the quality & completion of the alterations discussed, paid for & approved by the customer. Alterations are a separate cost & work by appointment only. You will pay your seamstress directly with cash or check.

When to Schedule

Type of garment and when to schedule:

  • Wedding gowns: 2-3 months* before portrait or wedding date
  • AJA & Debutant: 2-3 months* before event date
