For example, changing the neckline, adding sleeves, reshaping the train, adding lace and embellishment. We will work with you closely to listen and understand your needs.

The Experience

At Alterations Boutique Manchester we have worked hard on putting together the best possible team to work on your dress, developing a high standard of customer service we believe all brides deserve, and we have been successful at creating a wonderful experience from the moment a bride walks into our boutique.


First Appointment

We would suggest that you bring the wedding dress to us at your earliest convenience, remembering to bring your shoes and undergarments. We will perform an initial consultation, pin the garment and advise you of costs. If you are happy with the costs and go ahead we will keep your dress and schedule a date with you for your first fitting. This saves you from having to transport your dress and eliminates any risk of damaging it.



Prior to your wedding, you will visit us on the pre-agreed fitting dates. The number of fittings required will depend on the complexity of the work we are undertaking. Only once you are completely satisfied may you collect your perfectly altered dress and take it with you. 


Bridal Alterations Costs

We believe in charging our customers fair and reasonable prices, therefore, we undertake regular research to ensure our rates are moderate.  Our Fair and Reasonable Price policy means that our customers receive the best possible service and outstanding quality workmanship, without having to pay premium prices. 

All fittings including the consultation are free. We only charge for the work we perform and you only pay for the work we agree once. For example, if we take in the dress and it still doesn't fit correctly when you try the dress on, we do not charge again.
