Don't Go Too Low
•It's probably the most expensive dress you will ever own in your life, and you want to hire someone to hem it that understands that and treats the dress carefully. If you're just keeping your eye on the price, you risk dropping your valuable dress off at a place with low-quality service.
Be Wary of Scams
•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 quality and convenience; they might charge upwards of $300 to $400. However, your local seamstress may be able to offer a lesser price for equal-quality service.
Bottom Line
•Shop around before you commit to a place to do your dress alterations. You shouldn't pay more than $200 for a simple hemming job, as long as you feel comfortable with your chosen seamstress.

Finding the perfect wedding gown may seem like a daunting task. Not only do you need to choose the right style, color and design, but you may also need to have alterations done a few weeks in advance to adjust the fit of the dress for your body type. There are some smart things you can do to get your wedding dress ready for alternations and ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible, whether you are having the alterations professionally done or doing them yourself.
Five Recomendations:
   1.   Verify the delivery date of your bridal gown if you order it from a store to be sure that you will have it in time to get it ready for alterations. Ask the bridal shop to confirm the delivery date in writing when you order it. Though it might not be possible to determine the exact date it will arrive, the store should be able to give you an estimate within a timeframe of 1 to 2 weeks.
   2.   Choose all of your accessories, including your bra, underwear and footwear, at the same time that you purchase your wedding dress. It is helpful to coordinate both the style and fit of all of these items in conjunction with any necessary alterations. Having a good idea of the way your undergarments fit you and the height of your wedding shoes will help you determine how much alteration work is needed.
 3.   Examine your wedding dress closely for any defects, both on the outside and the inside lining of the gown. Look for any flaws in the embellishments on the dress, such as trims, embroidery and beading. These imperfections can usually be repaired as part of the alterations, but it is important to bring them up to the salesperson as soon as possible, especially if special fabrics or other products will be needed to fix them.
4.  Purchase thread that closely matches the color of your dress to use for alterations if you will be doing them yourself. If possible, take a small sample of the fabric of your dress with you to the local craft store, so you can visually compare the materials. Never order thread online for bridal alterations because it is almost always impossible to tell the exact color when viewing it on a home-computer screen.
 5.   Remove the dress from its packaging if it is wrapped or folded. Get it ready for alterations by allowing it to hang freely and uncovered on a wooden hanger--using the loops inside the seams and not the shoulder straps of the dress--in a closet or other safe place where no one in your house will accidentally touch or damage it. This will allow any wrinkles to fall out of the dress naturally, letting the fabric fully extend to its actual volume and length and making it easier to measure and alter.

Many brides would make a dressmaker sew their dresses for them. It is more personal, accurate and enjoying to have your everyday dressmaker sew your dress. But not all couples can have their dresses sewn for them. Due to want of time or low budget, some would want to buy off the shelf bridal wear. Buying a pre-sewn dress comes wit its own disadvantages. The dress may not fit exactly and would have to be modified in a way or two to suit the wearer. It can be time consuming and one has to take a lot of factors into consideration to get it right.

You should let an expert do the alteration. A regular dressmaker cannot alter a wedding dress accurately and retain the original design. Wedding dresses are delicate pieces of clothing with strict design and seam lines. So a fashion designer with years of experience is always the best choice to make the alterations. The same person can also be able to accessorize it after the modifications have been done.

The alteration must take into account the type of accessories the bride is going to wear. You will have take into account the shoe, the jewels, the type of bouquet and even the theme of the wedding.

The figure type will affect how the alterations done. So you will have to be there in person for measurement and not simply send over your regular measurement for the alterations. Everyday dress measurements are different from those of wedding wears.

If you are on budget, you would have to consider how much the alteration will cost. You will compare this price with the cost of a new bridal wear without alterations. In all situations you should avoid buying a non-fitting dress if it would cost so high to alter. The cost of the alteration must be known before you make the purchase.

Buy the dress on time. Alterations take months to do. The slightest delay can affect the wedding so be sure to give the bridal wear to someone who has strict timeline and can produce quality job.

Whether you're looking to alter the style of an existing gown, simply nip and tuck until it fits perfectly, or letting out a gown to work for your body type, wedding dress alterations can (almost) always be done. The key? Start early!

Finding a Seamstress

Most wedding dress shops will have a recommended seamstress, or an in-house seamstress. Remember that adjusting formal evening wear and bridal attire is much different than knowing how to sew a button, so be sure to select a professional who has years of experience in the field.

Minor Alterations

Many brides are lucky enough to find a dress that fits them nearly perfectly. In these cases, only a few minor wedding dress alterations are necessary. Still, it is a good idea to visit a qualified seamstress who specializes in wedding gowns. She'll ensure that your dress gives you the best-fit possible - which also means the best look possible!

Alteration Variations

There are three main types of alterations that can be done to a wedding gown. The length may need to be adjusted - so hemming is the first type. The second type is bodice alterations - adjustments to ensure that the dress fits perfectly around the bride's waist, bust, and hips. Lastly, if the gown has sleeves, they may need to be shortened.

Timing Is Everything

The secret to a successful gown altering experience is to begin early. The bride should try on the gown for the first set of alterations about two months prior to the wedding. The seamstress will inspect the gown, discuss what needs to be done, and make suggestions on what could be fine-tuned. At this point in time, the seamstress should also provide an estimate for how much the work will cost. She might also give some suggestions about bustling the dress. If the bride has any special requests, she should be sure to make them during the first fitting. The next fitting, scheduled about a month before the wedding, should have most of the major alterations done or nearly done. The final fitting, as close to the wedding as possible, will ensure that the gown fits the bride like a glove.

Remember to...

If you're attending a fitting for your wedding gown, you should bring as many of your accessories along as possible. Most important? Shoes! If you have not yet purchased your shoes, bring along a pair that have a similar heel height - but ideally, by the time the wedding dress is being altered, the shoes should be in the bride's possession. It is also a good idea to wear the undergarments you plan to wear on your wedding day, and bring along a veil or headdress, along with wedding day jewelry to obtain an image of how everything will look together! Bringing along a trusted friend or family member is a good idea, in case you need to make an on-the-spot decision and require a second opinion.

An ill fitting wedding dress can be extremely uncomfortable, not to mention unbecoming! Having a wedding gown altered is very common, and most brides end up attending between two and four fittings. Whether you are altering a family heirloom, a sample you found at a trunk sale, or the gown you ordered that doesn't quite fit flawlessly, it's a great idea to visit a seamstress at least once to make sure your wedding dress is working for you in the best way possible!
