Alterations

A perfectly fitted dress is key.

Whether you have chosen a bespoke custom made dress or bought one off-the-rack, alterations by an experienced bridal couturier is absolutely vital for the most flattering look and feel on your big day.

A very expensive designer dress will not look good if it is not fit to your body, and likewise an old vintage dress or cheaper gown can be made to look a million dollars with the right fitting. 

Adriana Cojocaru dresses are made to order, and fittings and alterations are included, but we can also alter or completely change another dress. 

Whether that’s raising the hem, adding a bustle or taking it in a whole dress size, the fittings and alterations process is essential to making sure you have the perfect wedding dress.

 

Our alteration service is world class and you will be taken care of by Adriana Cojocaru personally, an expert in her craft and Central England's Bridal Designer of the year. She and her talented team of seamstresses and couturiers will ensure you get the perfect fit in time for your big day. 

If you are one of Adriana Cojocaru's brides from the outset, your fittings and alterations will be included and your dress made to measure and completely bespoke, but if you already have a dress you would like to modify, get in touch for a consultation. 

Perhaps you bought a dress off-the-rack and it doesn't quite fit. Maybe you were given a family heirloom you want to modernise or perhaps you have simply changed your mind on a dress you bought. Do not fear, we can completely change the look and feel of a dress by adding or changing lace, adding sleeves, changing the neckline and more. Something as simple as adding a corset back or buttons down the back of a dress can change the effect. Let Adriana use her design expertise to make it exactly what you want. 

We are also able to add special personal elements to your dress, whether that be your "Something Blue", a hidden lucky charm or a sweet memory patch on the underside of your dress of someone you want to keep close to your heart on the day.
