Okay, there's one of two ways we can do this:
Uno: Lauren Elizabeth Bridal Boutique can call up our cute little independent seamstress to alter your gown. Alteration/seamstress appointments need to be scheduled and there is a $50 fee for no-shows or cancellations within 24 hours. Our in-store seamstress will quote your alteration price and complete the changes from start to finish (usually, you will plan on 2-3 fittings to get it just right!).
Dos: We have a list of outside seamstresses in various areas that we can provide for you. Please note that we are not responsible for any changes or alterations made to the dresses. A tip: ask your seamstress for their professional opinion and what they think would work best for your dress. A good seamstress will be a problem solver when it comes to reconstructing different aspects of your dress.
The low down on price: everyone charges differently. Think about layers, beading, bustles, etc. Some dresses are easily altered and some are a little more work! Seamstresses typically either charge by the hour or the specific alteration (ex: hems, side seams, shoulder straps, etc). Ask the details of what needs to be done before you commit. Have questions or want suggestions on your alterations? Call us! We'll give you our most educated answer- I mean... we gotta put that college degree to use, you know?!
