If the dress fits… wear it!

And so the countdown begins! Three months to go until you become a Mrs!

You’ll know from conversations with your personal Wedding Belles consultant, no wedding dress will be a perfect fit straight from the designer. We order the size closest to your measurements, and once we enter that 12 week window before your wedding day you’ll visit one of our very talented and experienced seamstresses to start your alterations; it’s time to make that dream Wedding Belles dress fit perfectly!

Top tips to keep in mind before your fittings start:

  1. Stay as you are! This is it, if you want a perfect fit it’s time to maintain that body shape ladies. We like to think we can handle anything here at Wedding Belles (and for the most part we can!) however once your fittings start weight fluctuations* can mean further alteration work, and more alteration work means more time.
  2. Find the perfect bra. Whether that means strapless, backless, padded or none at all, you will need to know what bra you will be wearing on your big day. Your bra will make a difference to the way your wedding dress fits and sits; if in doubt, bring a selection to your first fitting appointment to decide which works best.
  3. Choose your shoes. Our seamstress will need to see you in your wedding dress and wedding shoes together to determine the correct length of your dress. Tripping down the aisle is not an option ladies!

Your fitting appointments will take place at Wedding Belles, and as part of our commitment to delivering a high class service from start to finish, a Wedding Belles consultant will be with you every step of the way. Fitting appointments usually last around half an hour, and depending on what alterations are required to get your dress spot on you can expect to attend three or four appointments.

If you have any other questions about fittings or alterations please contact us at the Wedding belles boutique.

*Don’t panic! +/- a couple of pounds is not the end of the world. We understand that planning your wedding is stressful (and that hen parties are A LOT of fun!) and Wedding Belles will work with you to make your gown is perfect.
