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 Bridal Appointment


We invite all our brides to take advantage of our complimentary bridal consultation during which our bridal specialists will understand your needs and requirements, give you their honest advice, pin your wedding dress and provide you with a breakdown of costs. We always recommend that book your initial consultation with us at your earliest convenience, especially if extensive alterations need to be carried out. If you have already purchased your shoes and undergarments please bring them with you. During your consultation, we will also choose a date for your first fitting taking into consideration the complexity of your bridal alterations. We will put your wedding dress in a bridal cover and store it safely for you. This saves you from having to transport your dress and eliminates any risk of damaging your precious dress.




Prior to your wedding day, you will visit us on the pre-arranged fitting dates so that we can check and discuss the progress of your bridal alterations. The number of fittings required will depend on the complexity of the work we are performing. Only once you are completely happy with the way your gown looks and fits you, may you collect your perfectly altered dress and take it with you.


Bridal Alterations Costs

At Alterations Boutique Manchester we believe in charging our brides fair and reasonable prices, therefore, we undertake regular research to ensure that our rates are as moderate as possible. We appreciate that you would like to know in advance how much the costs are going to be but as Wedding Dresses can vary with regards to fabric, finishing, construction and detail we prefer that our brides visit us so we can provide a free, accurate and no obligation quotation. During your first consultation, we will provide you with a breakdown of costs so you have a clear understanding of what you are being charged for and we will do our best to ensure we quote within your budget. Our Fair and Reasonable Price policy means that our customers receive the best possible service as well as outstanding quality workmanship, without having to pay premium prices. 

All fittings including the initial 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.
