“Accessories are the exclamation point of a wardrobe!”

This is the biggest day of your life. We also know how important it is to have the right sparkle, the right shine, or the even the right pattern of lace.

Consider Expert Alterations as the wedding, and formal wear,  accessory creator that has the professional experience to create the essentials and the little extras you haven’t even thought of.

Our gorgeous bridal accessories range from full on fabulous to delicate and simple. Your accessories will look original and beautiful to achieve that unique look you deserve to have! 

Compliment your bridal gown and make your wedding day special.


Choose from many options of style, colour, edge finishes and length.

Listed below are standard veil lengths assuming you are placing the veil on the top of your head. For a custom veil length, using a measuring tape, measure from where you want the veil to sit on your head to its final length on your body. Then add one inch.

Choosing the Perfect Veil Length

Expert Alteration veils are available in pure white, silk white, and ivory in a matte finish. Sparkle finish is available in white or ivory.


Expert Alterations can help you choose the perfect headpiece to complement your hairstyle and match your wedding gown.

Custom Beadwork

Add sparkle and beautiful texture to an unembellished ready to wear gown or have this fine detailed included in the plan for your custom-made wedding dress.

Keep in mind that if you would like a heavily beaded gown, it is better to purchase a dress that is already embellished and in the case of a custom made gown, I have available lovely imported beaded laces. Custom hand beading is time consuming and so can be expensive but is appropriate for adding a few details to a wedding dress.

Belts & Sashes

A custom-made sash of ribbon, satin or taffeta may be just the right touch to accent the beauty of your gown.


Lovely machine embroidery can add a special touch to your gown. Consider custom embroidered gifts for your wedding party – an embroidered sentiment on the inside of groomsmen’s ties for example.

Detachable Trains

Can’t decide on the perfect wedding gown style for you? Do you like the sleek silhouette of a mermaid or sheath dress but are also drawn to ballgown styles. Why not have the best of both. At Expert Alterations, we can make a beautiful figure enhancing straight gown for you with a detachable train that can be worn for your ceremony and pictures and then removed for the reception and dancing. Many ready to wear gowns can also have a detachable train added.

There are many styles that can be made in detachable trains:

  • Barely-there sheer tulle
  • Heavier satin gathered or pleated styles for a fuller silhouette
  • Short or long cathedral lengths
  • Plain or embellished with lace to match or enhance your gown
