When you’re shopping for a bridal gown in South Jordan, Utah, you may wonder when the right time is to do wedding dress alterations. Not to worry — at Pritchétt Bridal, we have had many years of experience with bridal gown alterations, and we fully manage this important process for every bride who buys a gown from our bridal boutique.

Why Are Wedding Gown Alterations Necessary?

At Pritchétt Bridal, we sell wedding dresses from designers all over the world. Dress forms, however, are not the same everywhere. If you are a woman living in America, you know the same is true of any clothing shop you go into. Clothing size here is a mere suggestion.

Because your wedding day is the most important day of your life, you want your bridal gown to fit perfectly. But it won’t — unless you get the proper alterations.

Alterations are usually done in two or three stages. At the first fitting, the seamstress pins the gown in all the areas that need adjustments. At the second fitting, the seamstress checks to see if the work she has done after the first fitting is satisfactory to her. If she needs to make more changes, she schedules a third fitting.

Expert Alterations from Pritchétt

Here at Pritchétt Bridal, we do all our own alterations — even those of the complex variety. We employ our own seamstresses, and we use only the best.

One reason we do this is because quality is important to us. But alterations are even more important in South Jordan, Utah, than in other parts of the country. And that’s because we serve so many LDS brides. If you are getting married in the church, your bridal gown must conform to modesty standards. Sometimes that’s easy to achieve, sometimes not.

If you have fallen in love with a gown that does not meet LDS church requirements, you’ll need more than the usual alterations. You may need to add sleeves or a panel to the front or back of your wedding dress. When you are paying thousands of dollars for a wedding dress, you want the alterations to perfectly match the style of your gown, so that no one knows alterations have been made.
