Although an appointment is never necessary for our services, we do make an exception for our brides. We schedule brides for fittings so we can dedicate one of our bridal experts to your project without interruption. Along with your dress, we ask you to bring in the undergarments and shoes that you'll be wearing on your wedding day. Our seamstresses will council you through every detail including the timing of your fittings.SCHEDULE APPOINTMENT
THINGS TO CONSIDER
Alterations usually require several fittings. Allow four to six weeks for alterations to be completed. However, do not alter your gown months before the wedding. Your weight may fluctuate during the final weeks of planning, and the gown might not fit properly. Alterations are usually not included in the cost of the gown. Additionally, taking your dress for an alteration during peak wedding season can greatly affect your alteration timeline. Shoes, bra, and the other accessories should be purchased before you go for your wedding dress alterations. You should consider making some modifications to your gown such as shortening/lengthening the train, customizing the sleeves/waist.
Your gown balance must be paid before your alterations can begin.
If you do require additional alterations after your first fitting, you may incur further charges. Your seamstress will discuss this with you if this situation should arise.
In the event you need to change an appointment once your gown is in the process of alterations, your seamstress may need to charge a 15% rush fee if the appointment change conflicts with the 6-8 week time line stated above.

What is the Bustle?
Wedding dress bustles are intended to help you move around more freely with a long train. Bustles can also give your wedding dress a different look and protect it from fabric abrasion and mis-steps from your guests.
Bustle style: The French
The French Bustle is very popular and is great for most wedding gowns with lengthy trains. The bustle is secured with ribbons on the inside of the dress, and can have anywhere from two to twenty five different points. Here is few samples:
Love their service and quality of the dresses and their ability to alter them. They were very helpful and I just absolutely loved them. I'm definitely not the dress girl and i needed one ASAP. They had enough patience with me and helped me find the perfect dress. I recommend them to anyone out there, I'm sure you won't regret the visit.
My experience with Diamond Bridal has been wonderful! The seamstress made sure all my ribbons were tucked away and the dress was just right length.
