9 Money-Saving Tips on Wedding Dress Alterations – 2018


What a great moment to spend with me
here in this video where I’ll show you a thing or two to make your wedding dress
purchase experience one of ease and excited expectancy. While you watch these beautiful wedding clips notice your breathing to become
deeper and slower so that you become relaxed and meditative about the ideas
and wisdom I am about to share with you on the seemingly unavoidable subject of
alterations. Because seldom does one find a dress so perfectly fitted that it
doesn’t need modification, yet I offer guidelines that can have you dealing
with minimal to no fitting problems. Planning your wedding and doing all that
leads up to your day ought to be as pleasant as the actual wedding day
experience, wouldn’t you agree. And when it comes to your dress I can
help you shimmy into it nearly effortlessly when you follow my 9 dress
buying tips. Number 1: don’t believe that there is
only one dress in the world for you. Really do your homework before narrowing down to one yet continue to be open-minded. Number 2: buy a corset back dress. They’re beautiful and adjust to any size. If you see the dress of your dreams
that doesn’t fit and want to convert it to a corset back, my best advice is- don’t. Keep looking for something beautiful in a corset back
because there is – again I say – more than one perfect dress for you in the world.
Number 3: buy the dress first shoes second. Why? Buy shoes that offset the
length of the dress. If the dress is too long but you can manage six-inch heels
that solve the problem then do that (although sometimes you find the price of
the shoes and the price of the hem may be a wash). If the dress is too short
flats may be your answer and save you a bundle in hem alterations costs. Number
4: don’t get alterations done at the bridal shop. Ever! No matter how
knowledgeable, lovable, and attentive the bridal shop salesperson is don’t
be talked into getting a size up or getting any alterations there where
they will be much, much pricier. Scout out a local and reputable alterations
specialist who will likely be better priced and better turnaround time. Number 5: don’t ever fall in love with
the perfect style dress somewhere that is way too large and figure you’ll find
someone to fix it. Even without a persuasive clerk around many is the time
a bride has talked herself into this illogical belief. Don’t do this to yourself. Avoid being more than one size off. Number 6: if you sew consider doing
any minor alterations yourself, for instance, a strap or veil adjustment.
Consult a reputable seamstress how to do it if necessary but expect to pay a
small fee for that information. Number 7: always, always be good to
the independent seamstress you find. By that I mean be on your best behavior and avoid bridezilla behavior. If you’ve purchased wisely and therefore timely
there should be no need for acting out. Now here’s some insider info – also it
will cost you less in dollars to be congenial because guess what – there are
those of us who charge brides who behave badly, unbeknownst to them, more than
those who are pleasant. Yeah, I’m just saying… Number 8: search for your style online but avoid buying online. Number 9: distills down to my best advice – keeping in mind that I honor your preferences – if you really
want to beat the wedding dress alterations price racket, buy the correct
size dress in-person at a thrift shop stocked with gorgeous-beyond-belief
dresses, and take it home with you right then and there. Get shoes to compensate
for length. Do minor alterations yourself if totally confident. You can always
check out my formal wear playlist to see what a task will require to gauge your
skill level, see the link to that playlist in the description below.
Seek a reputable independent seamstress, not the shop gal, despite the perceived convenience and consider a corset back dress, it is the
champion of style that solves a multitude of fit problems. In conclusion
I just want to say, I hope you have the time of your life finding your dress while keeping the long game in mind so that the fun
continues well after dress purchase and the dazzle doesn’t frazzle because
you’re not faced with late arrival and astronomically priced alterations. If you
follow these guidelines you can be your own hero and end up paying very little,
if anything, for alterations on your most beautiful wedding dress! you
