2. Yes, your gown needs to be fitted
Wedding dresses aren’t typically made-to-measure, so very rarely does a bride’s size match a designer’s size perfectly. After you say yes to the dress, the TWO Bridal Boutique Team Members TAKES your measurements and compares it to the designer’s size chart and orders the closest size of gown that will BEST FIT YOU, WE ALWAYS HAVE TO FIT THE LARGEST MEASUREMENT, AND PICK THE SIZE THAT MEASUREMENT FITS INTO. THE RULE OF THUMB IS ITS ALWAYS EASIER AND SAFER TO TAKE IN THE GOWN VERSUS RELEASE, AS USUALLY THE GOWNS COME WITH A INCH SEAM ALLOWANCE ON EACH SIDE. DON’T FRET IF YOUR MEASUREMENTS FELL INTO A LARGER SIZE THAN YOU NORMALLY WEAR, AS BRIDAL SIZING IS USUALLY TOTALLY DIFFERENT, AND TYPICALLY A BRIDE GOES UP 2 SIZES IN BRIDAL. Once your gown arrives, the gown must then be tailored precisely, to fit your shape and form, along with length, and usually bra cups are inserted, bustles, and dance loop.
3. Usually three dress fittings
We usually recommend that brides have three wedding dress fittings. If you purchased in stock gown, you can Schedule your first fitting as soon as you like but no later than two to three months before your wedding day, the Bridal Boutique of Arizona TEAM will then schedule you at two week intervals so you get your place in line with all the other brides who have fittings during the same time. If your gown is specially ordered, once it arrives we will give you a call to come in within a week of it arriving to give it a try. You are welcome to start a dress fitting then or at a later date, but no later than two or three months before the wedding. If your gown comes in one month before the wedding we will make sure you will be fit in right away and get your gown altered as soon as possible to give you that peace of mind your gown will steamed and ready waiting in our pick up storage area for puck up closer to your wedding date.
4. Bring the right bridal accessories
For your first fitting, bring the shoes and undergarments you plan to wear on your wedding day, as these can greatly impact the fit of your gown. Donning a pair of skyhigh Badgley Mischka stilettos will require your wedding dress to be a different length than if you opted for a pair of sparkly Kate Spade bridal sneakers. Another pro tip for wedding dress alterations? To ensure your dress is tailored to the exact fit you want while walking down the aisle, you may choose to wear any and all shapewear or
undergarments you plan to sport on the big day itself. Note** most of our brides wear the bra cups we put in at the dress fitting, and the bride ops for this versus a bra.
4. Be selective when choosing your entourage
Please try to bring only one or two close friends or family members to get a second opinion. But just like dress shopping, don’t bring too many people—all those opinions will stress you out and make our seamstresses job that much more difficult. At the last fitting, bring your mom or maid of honor to get a tutorial in bustling your gown—they’ll need to handle this important task on your wedding day.
5. Include alterations in your budget
Be sure to factor wedding dress alterations into your overall budget. While they vary from dress to dress, alterations can cost is typically around $500, however, they start from $100 and can reach up to $1000 if customization is chosen. As mentioned before, you will always get a quote before started, and signed off on.
