We offer a full service alterations department for our customers. Located downstairs in our store, this section is a separate department for our customers to enjoy a quiet, peaceful and stress free fitting experience. Our tailors have many years of experience in their craft and offer you not only a great experience but a superb fit and a commitment to excellence that will make you want to wear your wedding dress right out of the store!
Linda is our full time, in house staff tailor with over fifty years of experience in the business. Linda spent many years teaching at the college level and is always learning new and different techniques. An important skill that Linda brings to the appointment is listening carefully and experimenting with different looks until she has everything just right for you. She specializes in custom build ups, jackets, pattern making, and just about anything else you could dream up for your gown!
Annett is our main outside tailor, meaning that she arrives at the store for your appointment and fits you here at Bridal Gallery where we are supervising the alterations. She has been here at Bridal Gallery for ten years and offers fast, efficient work that you will appreciate. Annett typically works on Tuesday afternoons and also Fridays during the busiest part of the bridal season.
We have two other tailors that we use to pick up the slack during the busy season. They both have over thirty years of experience and do a fantastic job in all areas of tailoring.
