Alterations for every type of wedding dress

When you finally find your dream wedding dress, your thoughts then go to who you’ll find to alter it.

The salespeople may know a place that they recommend but have they had their wedding dress altered there? They also may have input on what needs to be done to your dress to make it fit perfectly, but don’t understand that what they’re suggesting could hurt your wedding dress and ruin the fit!

About Florida suit guy Wedding Dress Alterations

masterful tailoring

Your new wedding dress is in my hands from start to finish. No contractors, no hired labor, just 30+ years of professional tailoring expertise at your disposal.

pricing that makes sense

Never worry about pricing that’s randomly chosen during your fitting. We use an hourly rate of $95 to ensure you only pay for the time we spend altering your wedding dress.

detailed adjustments

We work in increments of less than 1/8″ when making adjustments to your wedding dress. That means no matter what you need or want, we make sure your fit is perfect.

COMMON WEDDING DRESS ALTERATIONS

HEM LENGTH WITH OR WITHOUT LACE

Most wedding dresses need the length adjusted because manufacturers never know what style or height shoe you’re going to wear. I fix that!

TAPER THE BACK

Need your wedding dress to fit a bit tighter in the waist for comfort so you don’t feel like it’s going to fall down? Or is your wedding dress too tight and need adjustment?

ADDING CUPS

The addition of cups to your wedding dress allows you to feel more secure at the bust, and sometimes prevents the need for other more costly alterations.

REPAIRS

A significant amount of wedding dresses I see per year have either a rip, tear, or hook and eye that needs replacing.

INSTALLING, REPAIRING OR RECREATING CORSETS.

An integral part of your wedding dress is the internal structure that makes it fit perfectly – and keeps it up where it needs to be.

CREATING STRUCTURE

Structurally reworking to stiffen or soften in areas requested with boning and other stabilizing methods.

HEIRLOOM ALTERATIONS & CREATION

Using vintage wedding dresses and veils to create one-of-a-kind pieces unique to you.

ADVICE & GUIDANCE

Advice and counseling on what to do when other alteration shops say something “Can’t be done.”
