Bridal Alterations & Wedding Dress Alterations Services at City Tailors

Since you were a little girl you have probably dreamed of this day.

It’s no wonder then that your wedding dress is probably the most important part of the day for the bride.

The Experience

City Tailors have worked hard creating the perfect team to work on your wedding dress. We have very high standards of customer service that every bride deserves. We have achieved great success when it comes to creating a memorable experience for each of our brides from the moment they step into our shop to the moment they leave our shop with their finished dress ready for the big day.

First Appointment

Bring your wedding dress to us at your earliest convenience. Remember to bring the correct shoes and any undergarments as well. At this initial consultation we will pin the dress and give you an estimate of costs. Once you are happy to go ahead we will keep the dress and agree a date for your first fitting. Leaving your dress with use means that it is kept safely stored out of sight and saves you having to transport it to and from every fitting.


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


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

The Team

All of our team are qualified tailors, dressmakers and seamstresses by trade, with at least 15 years of experience. Despite being already qualified, the team have to undergo a rigorous City Tailors training programme to demonstrate they perform work to our high standards. In addition, there is ongoing regular training to help the team master their skills.
