How much will it cost to alter my wedding gown?

Alterations expenses will vary depending on what needs to be done to your dress. Many brides spend between $400 and $600 for professional tailoring which is usually accomplished in 3 to 4 fittings.

Be prepared to discuss your needs and wants with your fitter when you go for an initial consultation. Be clear about your timeline and any specific alterations that you would like to have done.

If you’re planning on losing weight, be sure to communicate this so that fitting dates can be set up accordingly. You might also want to ask if there is a fee for an initial consultation.
