Bridal Gown Alteration Testimonials
Angela had two gowns....one for the ceremony and one for the evening celebrations. The main gown featured in the photos needed the most alterations. But like all alterations, its the little things that make all the difference. The end result was a perfectly fitted gown and a very happy client.
I just wanted to send you photos of your dress magic. Thanks for all your hard work, I appreciated it.
How magical is a beach wedding. Danica's gown had such delicate beaded drapes down her back, with a soft flowing skirt....it just seemed perfect for the location.
Danica wrote "Just wanted to say thank you very much for the alterations on removing the train on my second wedding dress!
The length was just perfect for walking through the sand!"
"Just wanted to say thank you so much for your help with the alterations of my wedding dress.
I'll definitely recommend you to others."
Melissa's bodice was completely encrusted with beautiful bead work. It made the alterations slightly more challenging, but the end result was totally worth it.
I think the black and white photo is my absolute favourite!
Some alterations are more than just getting the correct fit. Julie's gown was a classic example.
Julie told me the wedding was on a beach, and wanted the gown to have a softer, less formal look. So as well as making it fit perfectly, I also changed the neckline into a sweetheart. I also suggested removing the bulky satin train to allow the chiffon layer to really flow. The chiffon train had the most delicate embroidery and bead work, that stood out much better once the satin was removed.
Julie wrote "Thank you again Alison - Our wedding was beyond perfect and the dress was a hit xx.
Thank you again for your amazing talent and vision."
Sarah's gown was already beautiful, and only needed a few alterations. To make it extra special and unique, Sarah wanted me to make her some draped lace straps to complete the look....the result was perfect.
Sarah sent me these wonderful photos along with the following message:
"Hi Alison. Thank you so much!! LOVED MY DRESS!"
I must make a special mention about her cater Carnival Creations. When I saw Emma's photo of the food I felt I had to share this amazing company with my followers.
Nicola was another fantastic bride to work with. Her gown was stunning, and after a few key alterations, it fit like a glove. How smart does her son look in the blue suit !!
Nicola sent the following message:
I just wanted to thank you for your amazing professional alteration service. You made my dress fit me perfectly and I felt fantastic in it. I received so many lovely compliments. Most importantly my husband thought I looked stunning😊
Sarah thanks you for the lace up lesson!

Hayla and her partner wanted a relaxed and easy going wedding. It was all about sharing the day with everyone, and not about the formality of a traditional wedding.
This photo sums up the perfect day they had.
Hayla said " I thought I would send you a picture of my dress, it was perfect. We had a wonderful time!!! "
Renae's gown had such delicate detail, that it was important to make every part of it fit perfectly. I was delighted to get the following message with this beautiful photo.
I hope you are well and keeping busy!
Just wanted to thank you for doing an amazing job on my wedding dress a few months ago.
Our wedding was held in Vanuatu on Sept 3rd and went off without any problems. (score!)
The dress fit perfectly in all the right places and it was so comfortable I left it on all night, you truly are a master of your craft.
I have attached a couple of pictures for you, which I am happy for you to use in promoting your fantastic work if you like.
I love getting photos from my clients. And I never mind when I get them. So it was lovely to get this message and photos from Kylie a year after their wedding.
"Hi Alison, I’m not sure you remember me but I bought a wedding dress off you a year ago and had you alter it. I wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful dress and the amazingly incredible expertise with fitting me. I have highly recommended you to many friends."
Jocelyn came with her mum a few times, and was lovely to work with. We made a few changes to her gown to make it perfect. She gave me 5 stars on her review which I have added below.
"So I needed to start the scary but exciting task of finding a wedding dress and the very first place i started was at Alison's. With the collection she had I was able to try on a few styles and to my shock what I thought I never wanted to have was what
I chose in the end.
From the first meeting, Alison was so welcoming; I was a bit nervous but she made me feel so relaxed and comfortable that all nerves went away. Although I didn't purchase a gown or have one made by Alison I did return to her for my alterations and for her helpful advice! Alison did an absolutely amazing job at redesigning how my straps sat, adding a bustle and taking in my gown a few inches!
I am so glad you were able to do my alterations! Thank you so much for your amazing work and for so much advice!!
Good Luck with everything in the future and again, Thank You!! xo "
It was a a perfect day and I felt so beautiful in the dress you altered for me.
Thank you so much for creating the wedding dress of my dreams.
Thanks for everything Alison.
Sometimes even the smallest alteration can make the biggest difference.
Vanessa wrote "Thank you so much for being so AMAZING. You saved my day and I'm ever so grateful. It was a lovely day, thank u."
Well we finally had our wedding on the 10th dec 2016 :) after falling in love with a dress in store that i couldn't afford, i took to ebay and bought the look alike. When it arrived it didn't fit me one bit, despite me ordering a custom size.
I turned to Alison in a bit of a panic thinking there was no way she could make this dress fit my body shape and worried id have to buy a new dress. It wasn't an easy task, this dress was a nightmare, but after my 6th dress alteration i was left with the dress of my dreams and still less than a quarter of the price with alterations than the dress in store.
Alison you are amazing, a magician with a sewing machine!!! I cannot thank you enough for making my dress fit me so perfectly and for all your hard work to get it there! I felt absolutely stunning in my dress.
What Fantastic service, I got my WOW dress, all at very short notice including alterations.
I could not thank you enough and the price for all budgets.
Hi Alison! I just wanted to message you to thankyou again for your marvelous assistance with my dress and altering it to perfection! The day was beautiful and went perfectly in every way! Gav was hugely surprised at how stunning the dress was!
Here's a few pics, happy for you to use them for your business if you can!
With such a long train, it was important to have it bustled up for the dancing.
"Thank you so much for re-sizing my dress in so short timing! Thank you, dress is perfect!"
Just some photos from the wedding for you.
Thank you so much for your work on my dress. I felt wonderful in it and everyone said that it looked beautiful."
