All wedding gowns will require alterations to fit perfectly. For great results bear this in mind:
1. Taking a dress in is always more feasible than letting it out. If you buy a custom dress it will be ordered in a size that accommodates your largest measurements (hip, waist or bust), then taken in by an in house tailor over three fitting sessions.
2. Choose a talented tailor. You need someone with experience. Ask around at reputable bridal shops or fabric stores for suggestions. Ask them for references or photos of their work.
3. Go prepared to your appts. For example bring your shoes, veil and undergarments that you will wear under your dress.
4. Allow enough time. Ideally fitting should begin three to four months before your wedding.
