1). How long have you ben in this business?
Both of our families have had a long history working in the fashion industry, and as a result, Johnny and I began to pick the trade at a very young age. I have 18 years of experience, where I started getting into the professional sewing business around the age of 18, and developed My’s Bridalterations in 2014.
2). What is the procedure or requirements for a custom design?
First and foremost, we’d love for you to contact us, preferably through email, and give us an idea of what your vision is. After we have an idea of what you’d like to create, we’ll set up times for a consultation and decide on materials. Then, once the basis is set up we’ll help you to setup the first fitting, and finally, make any final changes during your remaining fittings.
3). How long does it take to alter or make a dress?
Custom designs require around 3-4 months after you, yourself, have given the consent to begin creating the design to the pickup day. Alterations for bridal gowns will task around 2 months; formal or special occasions, will take around 2-3 weeks or 2-3 days, depending on whatneeds to be done.
4). When should I schedule my appointment?
We recommend that brides schedule their appointment 6 months prior to the wedding for a custom gown, and for bridal alterations, we recommend setting up an appointment 4 months prior.
5). What should I bring to my appointment?
Shoes and undergarments are the two most important things you must bring to your first fitting. This ensures that the measurements are accurate and precise.
6.) Do you charge for measurements and consultation?
No, we do not. We offer free consultations, measurements, and cost estimates.
7.) How/when do I pay?
We accept PayPal, checks, or cash.
You can pay at your last fitting, the balance needs to be paid in full at the last fitting.
8). How many fittings do I need?
Custom designs require around 3-4 fittings. Bridal alterations require around 2-3fittings, and any special occasion or general alterations need about 1-2 fittings.
9). Can I bring friends and/or family with me to my appointment?
Yes! We’d love for you to bring friends and family to see you in your gorgeous outfit, take pictures, give suggestions, and for our brides, learn how to help bustle your gown.
