We chatted with Bea Vasey over at Altered Elegance for an inside look into bridal alterations! One of the most common questions we get from brides in our store is about alterations: how long they take, what they cost, and who we recommend. We have sent lots of our brides over the years to Bea and she always does amazing work at an affordable price! We hope this interview can shed some light into her world and what a bride needs to know about it!
Do you offer alterations for other things (besides wedding gowns)? If so, what?
"Yes I do...zippers, hemming, and all general alterations."
How far in advance do you like a bride to bring her dress in?
"As soon as the bride gets her dress. This will determine how much work needs to be done, price and it will reserve an alteration spot. However, alterations do not need to be started right away, sometimes a bride likes to wait until closer to the wedding."
How long have you been doing wedding alterations?
"About 30 years."
What is your turn around time for wedding dress alterations?
"Each dress is different."
What sets your work apart from other seamstresses?
"Customer service, friendly and relaxed atmosphere, I listen to the brides needs, workmanship and affordable pricing."
