Your wedding will undoubtedly be one of the most joyous moments of your life.  Unfortunately, the expenditure attached to it will certainly be enough for you to let you a few sighs and groans along the way. After all, Canadian weddings are becoming more and more expensive with each passing year. Here’s Ileana Poessy tip for Wedding Dress Alterations.

Visit Sample Sales
Know when your favorite bridal shop will be holding its sample sales. You can find stunning dresses for a fraction of the usual price, allowing you to pour more money into other areas of your wedding.

Even if you fall in love with a dress that isn’t a perfect fit, you should go ahead and buy it! You can always have the dress altered at a bridal alterations shop like Nocce Bridal Alterations. Despite the cost of alteration, you’re still likely to walk away with a steal.

If you do decide to purchase a dress that doesn’t fit your frame to a tee, try to limit yourself to one or two sizes too big. It’s cheaper to have slim-fitting alterations done than to increase the size of a dress.

Nocce Bridal Alterations’s experienced Designer/Seamstress, Ileana Poessy has been receiving accolades for her detailed craftsmanship in creating custom gowns and for conducting alteration services for brides to be who purchase their dress else were and later find themselves overwhelmed in finding an experienced tailor – one they can completely trust.  For over 30 years, Ileana has been creating dream gowns and helping brides-to-be and their bridal parties get exactly what they pictured!  By appointment only.  Call us at 519-578-4495.

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.
