Expert Wedding Gown Alterations

It is rare for a bride to purchase the dress of her dreams and to have her selection fit like a glove without the need for alterations. At Winzer Cleaners, for over a century, we have assisted thousands of our valued bridal clients to enhance their appearance in their wedding attire with our professional wedding gown alterations. Throughout Manhattan, Westchester, Connecticut, and Long Island, Winzer is known as the trusted firm to consult for expert tailoring and bridal dress alterations. Our skilled tailors and seamstresses pay attention to the smallest details so that each gown is exquisitely altered to create the ideal fit for every bride’s nuptials.

Winzer Cleaners’ wedding gown alterations professionals cater to each client’s exacting requirements. For many, these adjustments may be simple, such as hemming the length or taking in or letting out the sides of the bridal gown. A well-fitting gown will accentuate and complement the bride’s figure, while long gowns should cover the shoes, but not present a tripping hazard. Very often, Winzer’s seamstresses are called upon to add details, such as straps, sleeves, a train, the addition of embellishments such as lace appliques, beading, buttons, and a bustle to prevent the train from dragging.

Winzer Cleaners’ bridal alterations professionals advise that when brides arrive at their fitting appointments, to bring their “day-of” accessories. This means packing the shoes and undergarments that will be worn on the wedding day. This attention to detail ensures a proper fit. That is why it is so important that at every fitting the exact garments and accessories are worn for the best tailoring and an optimal outcome. It is especially important that the shoes worn are the correct height so that once the bridal gown is hemmed, the issue of wearing a gown that is too-long will be resolved.

It is also important to include any jewelry that you plan to wear when you have your alterations fittings. For example, where your grandmother’s heirloom necklace falls may influence where you want the neckline of your bridal gown to sit. The smallest detail counts, so if you have any questions, please consult with Winzer Cleaners’ wedding gown alterations experts prior to your appointment.

At Winzer Cleaners, we measure the success of our wedding gown alterations by the look on our bride’s face when she sees herself for the first time in her custom-fitted bridal gown. Our goal is to make each and every one of our brides leave with a dress that fits her to perfection, achieves all of her requirements, and most importantly, makes her feel beautiful and regal. Whether you are walking down the aisle in the latest designer dress, an off-the-sales rack bargain, or carrying on a family tradition by wearing your grandmother’s wedding gown, Winzer Cleaners’ bridal alterations services demonstrate our total commitment to our clients and contribute to every bride’s confidence and radiance on her wedding day.
