When choosing a gown at Kay's Bridal, our brides benefit from several exclusive services made available to our customers.
Our alterations studio is located within our boutique so that your gown never will leave the store.
Kay's Bridal has an expert alterations staff, each with many years experience in designing, constructing, fitting, and altering formal apparel and couture bridal gowns.
Bridal gowns from our designers are not custom made, but ordered by taking bust, waist and hip measurements which are then compared to the designers size chart. The gowns are made to the standard patterns based on the size chart. Our staff has years of experience with each of our designers, including a background of how each designer cuts and the amount of ease and seam allowance in each gown. With all this information, we will recommend the closest size.
Kay's Bridal offers on-premise fittings where we are able to address all of your specific tailoring needs. Alterations often include adjusting the bust, customizing a perfect hem to compliment your fabulous shoes and creating a beautiful bustle. Currently, the cost for hemming run $195 to $300. Bustling runs $25 per point with most gowns needing 5 to 7 points. Additional alterations may be needed for a perfect fit and each alteration is priced by the complexity and time required. At the bride’s first alteration appointment, an invoice listing all work, cost for each alteration, and the total amount are written out for the customer.
We feel that alterations are a significant part of your gown experience and our brides take advantage of Kay’s Bridal highly lauded alteration services.
