An alteration service is available to our bridal customers on Monday to Friday, between the hours of 10am and 4pm. Please speak to a staff member regarding an alternative alterations provider.
All alterations will be quoted and charged in addition to the price of the gown, unless otherwise stated on your invoice. Full payment of your gown must be finalised before any alterations commence. If alterations are required, an appointment should be made 3-8 weeks prior to your wedding (this varies depending on your weight stability, i.e. if you intend on losing weight, it is best to leave the alterations closer to the wedding, to ensure the best fit possible, though please discuss this with your bridal consultant to ensure enough time for alterations). Alterations can vary from $150 – $450, though in extreme circumstances they could be more.
Hoops and petticoats
If your gown requires a hoop/petticoat, it can be either hired or purchased from Brides of Sydney. The hire cost is $100 with a $100 bond that is refunded on return of the hoop. The hoop should be returned within 3 days of the wedding (i.e. if the wedding is on a Saturday, the hoop must be returned by the following Tuesday).Please note: a late fee of $10 will be charged each day the hoop is overdue.
