Dress Fittings With Our Seamstress
Fittings and alterations take place at MODE Bridal on Wednesdays and Whyte Weddings, our Worthing bridal boutique, Friday- Sunday with the first appointment arranged between four to six weeks ahead of your wedding day. Margaret, a talented independent seamstress, manages all alterations and customisations.
While you can appoint a seamstress of your choice, we highly recommend Margaret as she has more than 30 years of experience. She specialises in bridal gowns and is trained in embroidery.
Margaret is an expert when it comes to bespoke customisation and she offers a free of charge consultation to discuss updates you may require – perhaps adding a touch of sparkle, incorporating lace, or creating sleeves.
She allows for two to three standard fittings, with the first appointment requiring you to bring your wedding shoes to enable accurate pinning. Margaret will then carry out any alterations in her home studio ahead of a second fitting. If further tweaks are required, she can arrange a third fitting to ensure your dress is a perfect fit.
Margaret charges a one-off fee of £200-£250 (depending on the style of the dress) to include all standard fittings. If you require customisation, she will provide a quote for fittings and the creation of additional detail. As Margaret is self-employed, she requires payment in cash or by cheque.
Amazing service and pleasant experience! I got my wedding dress from here with the help of Amy in the shop. I was really nervous about coming to try on dresses as I’m an older bride. Amy was kind, patient and created such a relaxed and warm environment. She was happy to spend extra time with me trying on more dresses and there was no rush. I found one I loved and felt so comfortable with the whole experience. Margaret their Seemstress was brilliant! She again was patient and kind when working with me on altering the dress. I highly recommend this place!
