Bridal Dress Alterations Services by Marina Marina
BRIDES & BRIDESMAIDS-I can offer a friendly and cost effective service for most types of alterations to wedding gowns, bridesmaids dresses, prom dresses and much more.
An initial estimate can be given after seeing the garment and any variation to this will be discussed as some fabrics and dress construction can be more challenging than others.
Many brides may need to have their gowns altered closer to their wedding date. I would advise that this should not be later than 3 weeks.
With many satisfied customers, you can have confidence and peace of mind that your garments will be expertly altered to fit perfectly.
