Bridal alterations with a flawless finish

Imagine this…you have found the perfect wedding dress but it’s a shade too long and the fit across the shoulders and round the waist is just not quite right. Don’t worry – we’re here to help. Your precious wedding dress can be altered by our team of professionals who having been working together altering designer wedding dresses and mother of the bride outfits for over 20 years ensuring the whole wedding party is dressed for success.

Wedding dress alterations require a patience and skill. Unlike dresses bought on the internet or in outlet stores, we will ensure that your dress fits you perfectly.


Wedding dress alterations for every fabric

Whether you have chosen a dress with many layers of tulle, a fine silk or a heavier satin, we understand what can be achieved and will discuss with you the alternatives. Our aim is to ensure that you have the best fit possible.

When working with fine, delicate fabrics, every stitch matters. For a dress with lace it is important to make the adjustments so that the pattern looks flawless with no evidence of the previous stitching. Our experienced seamstresses are also able to alter any beadwork or special trims where practicable.

Tailored to fit

We would advise you to visit us well before your wedding day for the first fitting. To ensure your dress fits perfectly, we do not recommend taking it down by more than two sizes as the resultant fit is unlikely to meet our exacting standards. In some circumstances a dress can be increased in size but this depends on how the dress was constructed at the outset. We suggest a second fitting nearer the wedding day for a final check.

Whether you buy your dress from Mignonette or from elsewhere, we recommend you wear your wedding underwear and shoes to the fitting so that the dress hangs properly and is the correct length.

Your bridal gown will pressed and stored ready to wear and we will show your dresser the best way to help you on the big day.
