The Perfect Fit

There are lots of reasons to choose The Wedding Warehouse and one of the most important is that we have our own in-house dressmaking department. Every bride, and her bridesmaids, has a personal fitting with one of our experienced seamstresses to tailor her dress to fit perfectly. All the sewing team are employed by us and work in-store and therefore understand just how important your fittings are.

Perhaps you’ve lost a few pounds from the stress of organising your wedding, or perhaps you haven’t been able to get to the gym as often as you intended; it doesn’t matter when you’ve bought your dress from The Wedding Warehouse. Our in-house team, guided by myself, will make whatever adjustments are necessary to ensure a perfect fit.

he first fitting takes around 45 minutes and we usually arrange it 10 – 12 weeks before your wedding. It’s important that you wear the lingerie and shoes that you intend to wear on the big day for this fitting so that we can establish exactly whether and what adjustments are needed, then your dress is taken straight to the sewing room.

A final fitting is arranged much closer to the big day to make sure that everything is perfect. Your dress then goes to the steaming room to be pressed and made ready for collection, but from initial delivery from the factory, to final collection by you, your dress need never leave our hands.

Of course our dress making department does much more than fittings and adjustments. We can customise your dress to your exact requirements. If you like the detail on one dress and the cut of another, our team can combine them to give you your own unique perfect dress.

At The Wedding Warehouse you can have a custom made dress for a fraction of the couture price.
