At Shoppe and Tailor we require a minimum of twelve weeks to complete bridal alterations. Within this time frame, we budget 3 to 5 fittings for every bride. Clients who desire special or customised alterations are recommended to begin the process earlier than 12 weeks.
Vintage deconstruction/ reconstruction projects require a minimum of 16 weeks.
RUSH bridal services are not available.
Bridal consultations have a fee of $65. If you decide to move forward with our services this fee is put towards the total cost of alterations.
All bridal alterations begin at $350. Total charges range depending on the number of changes, fabric type, number of layers and original construction. Our prices range from $350-$1000+. A proper quote is provided at the end of your first fitting.
*A special note on sample gowns*
Resizing and repairing sample gowns can often require more labour than typical bridal alterations and result in higher charges. This is something to keep in mind when imagining your perfect end result.
