Cherished Heirlooms Redesigned

Do you have a beloved family heirloom that you would like to use on your wedding day?

Let us creatively “Re-Tailor” your treasure into something designed uniquely for you...

We will custom design and hand embroider

something blue just for you!

The Wedding DeTailor offers expert alterations specializing in fine sewing with attention to detail.

Because we believe in building an intimate relationship with each bride we choose to accept only a limited number of alteration commissions each year. We request that brides start this process a minimum of  3-4 months before their wedding date.
Our "Alterations to the Aisle" process starts with a reconstruction consultation where we work with you to design a plan to fit, hem and bustle your gown to perfection.  We take special care to see that all work on your gown is done to your preference and when the alterations are completed we “engrave” your gown with a custom styled and hand embroidered monogram. By invitation we will complete your service with our on-site DeTailoring: delivering your dress to the venue, pressing it, assisting with dressing and photos, seeing you down the aisle and bustling your gown before sending you off to enjoy your reception!
