For the perfect fit, most formal gowns will need some alterations. Although measurements are taken, gowns are not custom made to order. At Tie the Knot Bridal, we partner with a number of seamstresses in the Green Bay area. All seamstresses we work with have over 30 years experience each in performing formalwear alterations. They have a high degree of expertise in the industry and your gown will be cared for like it was their own. Allow 4-5 months for bridal alterations and 6-8 weeks for mother's, bridesmaid, and flower girl alterations.
