Customize your gown by adding your own personal touches!
Olga's Bridal Store offers many ways to customize your gown and make it your own. Here are a few design elements you may consider:
Sleeves: We can add straps or sleeves to any strapless gown.
Corset backs: If your gown has a back zipper and you wish to change the look or need to increase the size, ask your alterations specialist to show you the corset back option.
Bustles: A bustle is created by elegantly draping and securing the train to the back of your gown to allow you to move freely and safely. Our experienced specialists can create the look that's just your style, from simple and subtle to intricate and detailed.
Bows & Sashes: Add a colorful sash to accent your waist and coordinate with your party.
Schedule your fitting at the time you purchase your gown or dress
If you purchase your gown at Olga's Bridal Store, you can schedule an alterations appointment.
What you should expect at your first fitting appointment
First fitting appointments take one hour for a wedding gown and a half hour for a bridesmaid or special occasion dress.
The dress will be fitted and pinned to show you the best alterations for an ideal fit. For long wedding gowns with a train, you will be shown bustle options. During the appointment, the fees for recommended alterations will be discussed so you can agree upon the look that best suits your needs and budget. You will receive a copy of the alterations ticket, pay for the alterations, and schedule your pickup fitting appointment.
We offer complimentary pressing or steaming once alterations are completed. If garments will be altered elsewhere, we will press or steam the garment before it leaves our store, however we cannot perform these services after garments have been altered outside of Olga's Bridal Store.
How much will alterations cost?
Our goal is to perfect the fit of your garment while staying within your budget. The cost of alterations is based on the complexity and difficulty of each task, so an alterations specialist will need to see you in the garment to discuss fit enhancements and options. Please contact Olga's Bridal Store for a free alterations consultation.
Payment for alterations is due at the time of your first fitting. Additional charges apply to rush orders (needed within 14 days). Remember to budget the cost of alterations and bustling when choosing the gown of your dreams. For example, you might get a great deal on a clearance style that is not the correct size, but complex alterations could cost the amount you saved. And if your gown has a long train, bustling is necessary to move freely and comfortably during your reception.
In additional to expert alterations, our stores can help you coordinate your wedding shoes and handbags. Payment options include the major credit cards and cash.
