Are Wedding Dress Alterations Worth It?

Wedding Dress Alterations

Many of today’s brides are striving to achieve the best wedding experience possible and to receive optimum value for every dollar they spend. It is becoming more and more common for brides to turn to their mother’s and even grandmother’s closets for their wedding finery, and to wear a family heirloom instead of purchasing their own gown. Other brides go the discounted route and travel sometimes across state lines to visit wedding gown outlet stores. These specialized emporiums feature last season’s designer-line bridal dresses in sample sizes as well as overstocks. While these stores can yield bargains, there is still the matter of ensuring that the trophy dress fits like a glove and showcases the bride to her best advantage. After all, what bride doesn’t want to look her best on her wedding day? To answer the title question, it is best to follow the lead of generations of Manhattan brides who turned to Cameo by Copeland Cleaners for the finest wedding dress alterations in NYC – or anywhere for that matter!

What can you expect by bringing your bridal gown to Cameo by Copeland Cleaners for wedding dress alterations? In NYC there are many bridal shops, some are high-end, that offer their own tailors and seamstresses. However, their timelines and your expectations may not dovetail. For example, when you purchase a gown from a bridal salon you will receive a fitting, and a return appointment to finalize the fit. That appointment may not be close to your wedding day, and it is the rare bride who does not continue to lose a few extra pounds before her big day! The result can be hundreds of dollars spent in vain and an ill-fitting garment. Instead, at Cameo by Copeland Cleaners, we fulfill our bride’s expectation to help them to achieve a perfect fit.
