Alterations

If you have purchased a dress off-the-rack or online it will almost certainly require professional alterations to achieve a better fit. It is recommended that you bring your dress for alterations at least a month before your wedding, but if your dress features intricate details, lace and beading more time may be needed.

Cost:
The cost of alterations varies greatly depending on the style of the dress and the extent of the alterations. The starting price for a standard hem and a minor side seam adjustment is R 1 100.
