The alteration service
This service is available at the Jdezire Boutique on Wednesdays Thursdays and Fridays. Fittings are strictly by appointment only.
We aim to carry out your first bridal fitting approximately 6-8 weeks before your wedding day (or the date you leave Lincoln if you are travelling elsewhere for your wedding)
You need to bring the bra (if required), shoes and hoop/petticoat that you will be wearing with your gown on your wedding day to all fitting appointments, without these items we cannot pin your gown accurately or check alterations that have been completed. (Hoops are available to purchase at your fitting)
If you wish to loose weight for your wedding it is best to do so before your first fitting and then try to maintain that size. Your gown will be pinned and altered to fit to the size you are at your first fitting so if you loose weight after this date further alterations may be required for which an additional charge will apply.
Further Fittings & Collection
If your gown only requires standard alterations it is likely that you will be able to collect it at your second appointment as no further work will be required.
Where your gown requires more complex alterations a second or even third fitting may be required and you gown will be prepared ready to collect on completion.
On completion of your alterations we will steam you gown ready for you to collect.
Alteration Advice & Pricing
At your first fitting we will give you an idea of the alterations required, how many fittings you are likely to need and a quote on how much we expect the alterations to cost.
If you are happy to go ahead with the alterations we will pin your gown and take a deposit.
The balance on all alterations is to be paid on completion of the work.
For a rough price guide for alterations please phone the boutique on 01522 682636 where we will be happy to help.
We have a wide selection of shrugs, straps, jewellery, tiaras, hair accessories and veils available to purchase.
Gown bags available.
Outside alterations on wedding dresses not purchased from Jdezire
** I’m afraid the alteration service is not currently available for gowns purchased elsewhere **
We charge a £65 fitting fee for gowns purchased elsewhere (All fitting appointments are free for Jdezire Brides)
The fitting fee includes two appointments and steaming of your gown on completion of your alterations. Additional appointments are changed at £10 each.
We regret that we are unable to alter wedding dresses purchased from high street stores and Wed2B due to the method of manufacture of these gowns
