Last minute urgent alterations on wedding dresses are sometimes unavoidable. Under normal circumstances, brides should bring their dress in for initial fitting no later than one month before the wedding. With complicated dresses and alterations, a minimum of two to three months time is preferred to avoid unforeseen events and rushing to finish. Unfortunately we don’t live in a perfect world with ourselves deciding what to happen and what not to happen like a character in a video game. Furthermore, modern brides and brides-to-be are busy with work and family. Balancing between work and life is no longer an easy task. To many, finding time shopping for a wedding dress and organising bridal alterations have become a deliberate effort.
While the situation is different with each bride, we could however list four common reasons or causes why some brides have no options but to leave their dress alterations to last minute. These four common reasons or causes are:
- Work commitments and responsibilities leave brides little time and energy to organise her dress alterations
- Late dress delivery due to fault from the seller, the designer or the wholesaler
- Wrong dress size delivered due to fault from the seller, the designer or the wholesaler
- Dress damaged by another seamstress or tailor and re-alteration or repairing is required
