What do I bring to my alterations appointment?
We would suggest bringing any undergarments you hope to be wearing the day of your wedding, any accessories you would like to try on with your gown and, most importantly, your wedding shoes. We are unable to proceed with your alterations appointment if you forget your shoes, as the seamstress will not be able to complete your hem, and will have to reschedule your appointment. Please remember to continue to bring your shoes to every alterations appointment.
