About Wedding Dress alterations
The White Flower is proud to be the only San Diego bridal boutique to offer full-service on site alterations for brides. We truly have you taken care of from dress shopping to beautifully walking down the aisle. Our expert seamstresses will perfectly tailor your dress and have it fitting you like a glove!
We also accept brides who purchased their wedding dresses from other bridal boutiques, as well as brides who are wearing a family heirloom piece. Call us to set up an appointment with our head seamstress. For the initial alterations appointment, please bring your wedding day shoes and expect the appointment to last around an hour. Alterations typically run $600 - $800 depending upon the scope of the work.
The Seamstress Team
With over 40 years of experience doing bridal alterations, our head seamstress, Mary, will instantly put you at ease. She has been working with our brides from the day we opened the Boutique and knows our dresses and designers inside and out. The alterations ladies are friendly, easy to talk to, and exceptionally skilled. Rest assured, your dress will be simply stunning! Additionally, your personal stylist, is available by phone to help you throughout the process from scheduling your first fitting to answering questions that might arise between now and your wedding day.
Preparing for Alterations
About two months before your wedding, schedule your first fitting by calling 619.501.1700.
BRING YOUR SHOES to all of your fittings! We cannot stress enough the importance of having the actual pair of shoes you will be wearing on your wedding day with you at your fitting.
Bring any undergarments (spanx, bra, etc) that you think you might be wearing with your dress.
Feel free to bring any accessories so that you can see your whole, completed bridal look!
Remember that the boutique only has street parking, so please plan accordingly :)
