How Long Do Wedding Dress Fittings Generally Take?
Fittings are different for everyone; women, men, and children alike. It all depends on the degree of intricacy of the garment, the type of fabric, and the length of work required. In most cases, a first fitting generally takes anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes; while other appointments may last up to an hour or more. Also, it is most common to have at least two appointments for wedding dress alterations and fittings.
How Long Do Standard Alterations Generally Take?
Just as fittings, standard alterations range greatly regarding the amount of time they take to complete. Again, it all depends on the intricacy of the fabric or garment, the amount of work that needs to be done, and the degree of difficulty the alteration requires. In most cases however, Yong’s Alterations generally needs around 2 to 3 days to complete standard alterations. But for more difficult alterations it is standard to take anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks instead. It is highly recommended to have your garment altered as early as possible before it’s needed so that you and the tailorist have plenty of time to accurately complete the job.
How Early Should I Drop Off My Wedding Dress or Formalwear?
It is highly suggested to find an alteration specialist and bring in your garment as early as five weeks before the date of your event. Every alteration is different and every person has a unique and separate tailoring preference. It could take anywhere from 2 to 10 fittings before an evening gown or tuxedo is exactly what the client requested. Because of the unknown, it is important to have ample time to alter bridal wear or formalwear before it’s needed date.
