Your Initial appointment would need to be scheduled about 6 to 8 weeks before your wedding date. At least 2-3 fittings are required for a perfect fit, and you should allow 2-3 weeks between each fitting.
Bringing your chosen underwear to all your fittings is essential; however, Perfect Alteration recommend that you don’t purchase lingerie before your first appointment as it may not be suitable for your dress.
It is important that a decision “which shoes to wear” is made before the second fitting to ensure that the hem-line is fitted perfectly.

"Thank you so so so much for doing an absolutely AMAZING job on my wedding dress alterations. I couldn't have been any happier with the job you did. I have relations that are semstresses and they told me they couldn't believe how great the alterations were, that my dress had many materials that would have been v difficult to work with. The dress was an unbelievably good fit. You did everything I asked and you were so kind and obliging willing to meet me outside of your hours of work. I cannot thank you enough. I would recommend any bride to come to you for their alterations. Thanks again!!"
