Wedding dress alterations

Once you've found your wedding dress, it's important to have it altered so that your dress not only fits well, but feels comfortable to wear all day. At Betty Gets Hitched we offer an in-house bridal alterations service to ensure your wedding dress fits you like a glove, so that you can enjoy your wedding day in comfort and style!

Our standard alterations package is offered to brides who have purchased their wedding dress in-house, and includes everything needed in order for your bridal gown to fit well. This may include:

- Shortening the hem

- Taking in at the side seams

- Fitting the bust area

- Shortening straps or fitting sleeves

- Adding hitch ups (a bustle system) on the back of your wedding dress to shorten the train for the evening - ideal for lots of dancing!

We can also offer style changes to wedding dresses such as adding sleeves or straps, adding covered buttons to the back, altering the shape of the front and back neckline and removing layers to take some weight out of a fuller skirt. Please note these are charged separately and on top of our alterations package.

Once you have chosen your wedding dress with us, we can discuss any alterations needed and will arrange to book you in for your first fitting nearer to your wedding date.

We also offer an in-house alterations service for brides who have bought their wedding dress elsewhere; please note these are priced per alteration, and can be costed at the initial consultation once we've assessed the fit of your dress and taken into account any style changes you would like. As our fittings diary gets very booked up over the busier bridal periods, we advise that you contact us at least 4 months before your wedding as we cannot guarantee to take on all brides that make alterations enquiries.

With over 10 years' experience of fitting wedding dresses and bridal alterations, at Betty Gets Hitched we pride ourselves on our high standard of customer service within a friendly environment at our North London studio.
