Your wedding is the most important day of your life. Thus, you want to make sure that everyone looks their best and wearing clothes that fit. Here at Vintage Tailors, we make your vision a reality. We provide dress alterations for bridesmaids, flower girls, and the mother of the bride. With us, your entire wedding party will look stunning.
Flower girls are ostensibly responsible for sprinkling petals on the floor during the ceremony, but their main role is to look adorable. Flower girls, therefore, need dresses that fit correctly, just like everyone else.
If you are looking to make alterations to a flower girl’s dress, then you have come to the right place. We apply a range of adjustment techniques designed to ensure that the flower girl’s dress fits her perfectly, allowing her to look as cute as possible for all the photos as she walks down the aisle.
The dress of the flower girl is not a minor consideration or a side note. In our view, the little girl in your life should receive the same quality of service as everyone else, from the bride to the bridesmaids to the mother of the bride. We apply the same tried-and-tested tailoring approach that we use on our adult clothing range to all our child garments too.
Just as with bridesmaids, we perform a visual inspection of the flower girl dress to see whether there are any problem areas that we need to address. We then take measurements of the flower girl and use these to create a bespoke garment that fits her perfectly.
The difference a properly-fitting flower girl dress can make is enormous. Not only is it more comfortable for the girl herself, but it also provides better photographs following the ceremony. Adjusting a flower girl dress is not something that you want to miss out on.
Bridesmaid alterations are essential to ensure that every woman in the bridal party looks their best both on camera and off. Vintage Tailors has more than thirty years of experience, making stunning alterations to bridesmaid dresses, helping all of those in your party feel gorgeous and confident on the day.
Bridesmaid alterations allow you to keep the style you want while making adjustments so that garments fit the contours of each person. It means that you can choose a set of dresses that match the theme of your wedding without having to worry about sizing. All you do is find a collection of dresses that you love (matching if you require) and then bring them to us for alterations.
The alteration process begins with trying on the dresses as they come off the shelf. We check each bridesmaid for fit, noting any problem areas. The next stage is to take measurements. Measuring things like waist, bust, inseam, outseam, hips, and shoulders allows us to adjust each dress so that it fits each person in your party.
After that, its time to make the alterations. At the end of the process, you’ll get a set of dresses that dazzle. Everyone in your party will look at feel great.
Traditionally, the mother of the bride wears a dress that complements the colors of the rest of the wedding party, including the bridesmaids, bride and sometimes the groom.
Choosing a dress for the mother of the bride can be a significant challenge. The final selection depends primarily on the bride’s color, style, and degree of formality.
For the mother of the bride, dress alterations are equally as important as they are for the bride herself. Making adjustments is often necessary for situations in which the bride instructs all her bridesmaids to wear individual outfits as well as when she demands that they wear matching. Whatever dress you ultimately must wear, it needs to fit appropriately.
The mother of the bride, therefore, often needs to make significant alterations to any dress that she purchases for the occasion. A suitable style might not be available in an appropriate size to fit the contours of her body. Dress alterations are, therefore, essential.
Mother of the bride dresses can come in a variety of styles. Traditionally, the mother of the bride wears a medium-length dress in a color that complements the color of the bride’s dress. The idea here is to look elegant but not to detract from the bride herself. At most weddings, the bride wears a white dress, so the mother of the bride typically chooses something grey or darker.
The mother of the bride dress can come in a wide variety of styles, depending on her preferences. Many dresses feature velvet, sequins, mesh illusion necklines, long sleeves, metallic accessories, and ribbon trim. Fortunately, at Vintage Tailors, we have the skill and experience to make any necessary alterations to mother of the bride dresses, providing you with full flexibility.
The female members of the wedding party usually get their dresses altered several weeks out from the day of the wedding. Six is currently the standard. During those six weeks, however, women in your party might gain or lose weight. With Vintage Tailors, you can make dresses bigger or smaller so that they are a perfect fit come the big day.
Generally speaking, you can take in or let out a dress by around one size with relative ease. If, however, you need to adjust more than that, you may need to opt for more extensive alterations. Whether it is possible to extend or reduce a dress by two sizes or more depends very much on the material and the style of dress. It’s always best, therefore, to check with a tailor to ensure that you’ll be able to modify the dress in the way that you’d like ahead of the big day.
It is possible to shorten and lengthen bridesmaids dresses, flower girl dresses, and the dress of the mother of the bride. Shortening involves bringing up the hem or changing the length of the dress straps. Lengthening involves making dress straps longer or allowing the hem to unfurl (or a combination of the two).
Many people like to change the neckline of their dresses for both style and modesty reasons. If you want to make members of your party feel more comfortable in their wedding wear, we can help you adjust necklines, bringing them up where they plunge. We can also change the shape of the train of the dress.
Your wedding is the biggest day of your life. You, therefore, want all of the members of your bridal party, including the bridesmaid, the mother of the bride, and the flower girl, to have dresses that let them look their best.
Not all dresses come off-the-shelf fitting perfectly. Thus, you need the help of experienced tailors who can make alterations to dresses, helping them fit in the best way possible.
