London Fitting Rooms provide a bridal alterations and fittings service. Our fitters advise and guide the bride-to-be to adjust a wedding dress in ways that fit her and the occasion perfectly.
Basic alterations such as shortening, taking in the bodice and lifting the shoulders improve the original fit without changing the design. It is also possible to restyle a dress completely, for example by changing a panel or transforming a neckline.
We recommend three wedding dress fittings and two weeks between each one. Bringing the chosen underwear for all bridal fittings is essential as it may affect the final fit. It is likewise very important that a decision is made on which shoes to wear before the second appointment.
The First Fitting:
During the first appointment, the overall fit is looked at and solutions found. On average it takes about an hour but can vary depending on the wedding dress. We will advise on the first meeting how many more fittings are needed.
The Second Fitting:
It’s a “tack fitting”. This step gives an idea of the final look but all changes can be reversed. This enables further adjustments before completion. The length is usually pinned on the second fitting.
The Third Fitting:
This is the final fitting; all the wedding dress alterations will have been done. We will double check that the bridal gown fits you perfectly so you will be at your best for the special day.
