Congratulations on choosing your wedding gown!
We are looking forward to working with you
as you prepare for your wedding day.
We know that our brides have many questions regarding the wedding gown fitting process and we have tried to address many of them here.
Please review this information carefully
and keep it in a handy place for future reference.
Feel free to contact us at 315-635-5030 with any questions or concerns that you may have.
Now that you have chosen your gown, here is what you need to know:
In most cases, your gown will arrive at Mirror Mirror Inc. about 4 months prior your wedding (unless we have discussed another timeline with you because of a rush, or other special circumstance). We will call you as soon as your gown arrives in the shop to let you know it is here, and to make arrangements for your fittings. The balance of the gown is due upon the gown’s arrival. All purchases are a final sale!
No fittings will be scheduled until the gown balance has been paid.
If you live out-of-town and require specific dates for your fittings, we recommend that we set up your fittings in
advance of your gown’s arrival to ensure that we can accommodate your date requests.
We may be able to accommodate shortened lead -times with a rush fee. All rushes require designer’s approval. Rush deliveries are often over a two week delivery period and do not have a specific in-store date. We appreciate your patience while waiting for your rush order to arrive. Please note that if you have placed a rush order with us, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to perform your alterations, particularly during peak bridal season.
Our in-house tailor is a highly skilled bridal specialist. We do offer bridesmaid alterations here; however, our average alteration fee starts at $30 to $50.
VEILS & JEWLERY:
If you have not yet chosen your veil and jewelry, it’s best to schedule an appointment prior to your first fitting so that you can make your decision with enough time to have the accessories available to you for your fittings.
When you come to your first fitting, it is not required that you bring the actual shoes you will wear at your wedding but as close to the heel height you want to wear would be helpful.The hem is often pinned in the initial fitting so it is vital that your shoes are available. So get shopping!
At the first fitting you will also need to bring whatever undergarments you’ll be wearing on your wedding day (bra, spanx, etc.)**To meet your undergarment needs. Try to take into account the bustline, back neckline andwaistline of your gown. If you have a natural waist dress, you will want a bra that ends at your natural waist or above. If you have a gown made out of a sheer material, you wil lwant to avoid bras that have heavy boning or visible seams.Here’s how the alteration process works:
Gown fittings take place at the availability of our tailor. Please understand that the fitting schedule is subject to change. Generally, your first fitting will be about 3 months before the wedding, and the final fitting will take place 1-2 weeks in advance of the big day. When your gown arrives we will call you to schedule all of your fittings in advance. On average, there are usually 2 visits. Since our alterations fees are a la carte you may feel it necessary to schedule a consultation session with our tailor. Your Bridal Consultant will discuss this with you at the time of your purchase.
