Sometimes the perfect dress need a little work before it is the perfect fit. From alterations to cleaning and pressing, the Wedding Gown Specialists at Dependable Cleaners have tips to ensure the gown you find looks flawless when you walk down the aisle.
Wedding gowns consist of elegant fabrics and intricate designs, which makes them extremely beautiful, yet difficult to clean and alter. It’s critical that dresses are cared for by an experienced team that specializes in the intricacies of wedding gowns and formal evening wear.
Most dresses will need some level of alterations before the big day. The majority of wedding gown alterations a bride will need involve adjustments of the length or size of her dress.
Adjusting the length
The length of a dress can be shortened by adjusting the bottom of the gown. However, when the hem is made out of lace or has heavy embellishments the adjustments need be made at the waist to preserve the integrity of the design along the hem. If this is not possible, the embellishments will need to be removed and replaced once the adjustment is complete. This can drive up the cost of the alterations.
