Dress Fittings

Your dress fittings will be carried out by a recommended professional seamstress on their premises at a time to suit you. We will arrange delivery of the dress to them if you so wish and collect and press the dress ready for collection back at the boutique. It is also a good idea to keep guests to a minimum at your fitting to allow the dressmaker to have your full attention and allow them to have full concentration.

To Take…

You will need to take your shoes with you so we can have the hem alteration perfect and your bridal underwear. Most dresses have corsetry and boning inside and don’t require you to wear a bra this is something we will have advised you on before the fitting.

The Next Step

You will then visit the seamstress a second time to ensure the dress is now a perfect fit. On occasions you may need to return for an extra tweak Once the fit is perfect will we press your gown a couple of days before collection ready for the big day.


Costs are approximate but most standard alterations will be anywhere from £100 to £200 dependent on fabric and how much needs to be altered. This is purely an approximate guide. All alteration costs are made direct to the seamstress and they will advise you on price at your fitting.

Recently bought my wedding dress from Elaine at County Cream! Couldn’t recommend highly enough. The first appointment with Elaine was great and I found my dream dress on the second try! Elaine was great, informative and so friendly. We also had a giggle too! My big day is in 6 weeks and thanks to Elaine I am all ready to go. Thank you for making what I thought was going to be a stressful process so easy and enjoyable! X
