Bridal and Formal alterations
Q: What is the cost for wedding gown alterations?
If you’re among the lucky few who can find the dress that fits perfectly – congratulations, if you are the one who needs alterations we can help. First of all keep in mind that bridal alterations are as close as you can get to haute couture* sewing and it comes with a price you have to consider in forming your wedding budget. Second, allocate enough time for fittings, first fitting can take as much as one hour. An average wedding gown will need at least three fittings and it might take up to eight weeks from start to finish.
Most gowns need hemming and it starts at $80 and can easily go up with the type of hem needed, the number of layers, the type of fabric and the type of hem finishing and decoration. A hem alone can easily top $500. Other alteration to consider is in the bodice area. Any lace, beading, embroidery etc. must be removed and then reapplied it can get very expensive but most gowns don’t need anything this complicated. A good guess would be $80 for the average gown but it can go up to $300 for custom work. The last main alteration is a bustle. There are a few ways to do the bustle, and they are determined by what we call points. Our charge for bustling depends on the number of points – the longer the train the more points will be necessary. The average gown needs around 3 points so the cost is $90-$125 but can go up to $400 for custom bustle. Wedding dress retailers will charge the most to hem, since they know their shoppers have a higher budget than most and are willing to pay more for convenience; they might charge upwards of $275 to $990. However, your local seamstress may be able to offer a lesser price for equal-quality service.
