Alteration Pricing

For gowns purchased at the Wedding Embassy we offer capped alteration pricing. The cap represents the maximum alteration charge for gowns purchased through the Wedding Embassy. The 2014 capped prices apply to all regular alterations, i.e. alterations that are necessary to make the gown fit perfectly. The cap does not cover any of the following: custom design changes, significantly beaded garments, or maternity alterations.

It is always our intention to select a gown size that provides the best initial fit and requires the least amount of alteration, however some alteration will be needed to make your gown fit perfectly. Keep in mind Junior Bridesmaids and Flower Girl gowns usually need as much, if not more, alteration than an adult bridesmaids dress.

2017 Bridesmaids Cap: $85
2017 Mother-of-the-Occasion Cap: $175
2017 Bridal Cap: $400, $500 or $600 depending on gown style

Custom Bridal Gown Design

something new!

If you’ve been dreaming of your gown since you were a little girl and can’t find it in a bridal shop, it may be time to consider custom design. Each year the Wedding Embassy works with a select number of brides to create the gown of their dreams! To begin the process you’ll work with Megan and our skilled seamstresses to refine the design, fit, and fabrication of your ideal gown. Custom creations require a significant amount of time and attention; we require a 6 month lead time so that we can properly design, source, and construct your bridal gown. Custom design services start at $1800. For more information, to view our portfolio, or schedule a consultation please contact Megan at weddingembassy@gmail.com.

We work closely with Orange Restoration and our experienced seamstresses to help restore your pre-loved gown. Each vintage gown is unique and each alteration experience is different, we cannot quote alteration and/or restoration prices without meeting with you and your dress.
