Our Custom Process

At Expert Alterations you will have a free consultation with an opportunity to share your ideas and plans. I will then sketch your gown and help you choose the appropriate fabrics and materials. Upon your approval of the project, you will receive a written contract quoting the full price of your order and the plan for its completion.

All gowns come with a custom made slip, petticoat or crinoline designed to support and enhance the beauty of your dress. I promise that you won’t need this many helpers to get dressed!

One of the distinguishing features of my bridal gowns is the inner structure of each dress. Strapless and off the shoulder gowns all have full built-in corsets to support the weight of the dress, shape your figure and ensure a perfect fit so that your wedding day will be comfortable from the first picture until the last dance.  Gowns with straps can be less structured if you wish, however, keep in mind that a properly constructed dress doesn’t require any special undergarments.

A Style for Every Bride
