First Bridal Fitting

Most bridal gowns will require alterations to achieve a perfectly flawless fit before wedding day. The bridal gown is likely the most tailored piece of clothing a woman will ever wear during her lifetime. Ciara's Alterations is the exclusive in-house seamstress service for Fifth Avenue Bridal. The first fitting will be coordinated based on the desired final pick-up date and working backward from there we will determine an appropriate timeline for the second fitting, etc. First and second fittings are standard for most brides. At time of first fitting scheduling, we provide the bride with an estimated quote of the cost for alterations services, discuss add-on items such as custom design changes, advise on particular features of your gown including fabric type, gown construction, sewing techniques and together with listening to your vision, determine the best plan to achieve your perfectly fitted gown! A non-refundable deposit of $75 is required to begin the alterations process at Fifth Avenue Bridal and covers the boutique service fee, appointment coordination, gown storage, style, design and gown expertise, travel and handling recommendations, gown bustle training for you and your guests, and at least 2 fitting times at Fifth Avenue Bridal with both Julia and Ciara present. Your gown will be available to take with you upon your satisfaction at your second fitting or at your final fitting and packaged in 2 garment bags hanging securely on a bust form. Alterations service items (i.e., hem, bustle, sides, back, etc.) are each billed separately and due at first fitting, refer to initial quote. Bride must adhere to guidelines and policies outlined when scheduling the first fitting, which can be found in e-mail or text appointment confirmation message.
