Initial Fitting

A 30-minute to 1-hour initial fitting appointment is held roughly 3 months before the wedding, depending on your garment type. During this appointment, we'll review your garment and collaborate to create the fit of your dreams! 

Note: We recommend booking your appointment as early as possible, typically when you order your garment as appointment space is limited. 


Try Ons

As needed, this 30-minute appointment is held 1-2 months before the wedding. The garment will be tried on to check the alterations preparations before finalizing them. 



This 30-minute appointment takes place 1 month to 2 weeks before the wedding. You'll try on your final garment - and you'll be off to the day of your dreams!
