Alterations

At Crystal Bows Bridal Boutique we offer an exceptional wedding dress fitting and alterations service. This gives all our brides peace of mind that their wedding dress will not leave our store until it’s fitting perfectly. Our seamstress, Lisa provides a professional and personal service to all our brides.

At your first fitting appointment we will introduce you to Lisa, our professional seamstress who will explain what needs to be done to make your wedding dress fit perfectly. She will give you a cost for the work required, then Lisa can work her magic to ensure your wedding dress is tailored to perfection. 

You will need to bring your wedding shoes and your underwear to the first and all subsequent fittings. 

We ask that you be sparing with make-up on fitting days and please, no fake tan. You don’t want to run the risk of getting your wedding dress dirty before you even walk down the aisle.

” Crystal Bows is the bridal boutique of your dreams, ladies! Beautiful decor and a stunning range of dresses. Jade and Sydney were so helpful, patient, approachable and kind to my mum and I this afternoon. I’ve been to a few boutiques so far and Crystal Bows is on another level. I’m so happy to have found my perfect dress here! “

Your fitting appointment usually takes around 30-45 minutes and we respectfully ask that you arrive on time. It’s tricky if you’re late as you will run into another bride’s appointment.

It’s also a good idea to keep guest numbers to a minimum to ensure that Lisa can concentrate and that you have a valuable fitting appointment.

In addition to our standard wedding dress fitting and alterations service we also offer a bespoke service allowing our brides to make changes to their chosen wedding dress, to add their own stamp or individuality to it. Adding sleeves, changing necklines and creating coordinating jackets are just a sample of the bespoke options Lisa our seamstress offers. 

In addition to the above we also offer a full alteration service for Mother of the bride, Bridesmaids, Prom and Evening/Occasion Wear.
