Alterations at Bridal Traditions

For most women, their wedding dress is the first and perhaps only garment they wear that is altered just for them and fits absolutely flawlessly. That's part of what makes a wedding dress so special! To make the process as easy as possible for our brides, we offer in-house alterations to achieve the perfect fit in a stress-free and convenient environment. One-on-one fittings take place in our boutique with alteration specialists who have over 20 years of experience and have worked with hundreds, if not thousands, of brides and wedding dresses. Based on availability, our in-house seamstresses also love to help with bridesmaid, mother of the bride, mother of the groom, flower girl, and any other special occasions wear. Being as we keep our seamstresses busy with the gowns and dresses bought within our store, we unfortunately are unable to provide alterations services for garments bought elsewhere. Below are some important information in regards to preparing for alterations.
