Crafting Your Dream: Custom Wedding Dresses at Ella’s Alterations

“Design by Ella” by Ella’s Alterations LLC

The Dream Starts Here

The journey to “I do” is filled with countless choices—venue, photographer, and, of course, your wedding dress. At Ella’s Alterations, we believe that your dress should be as unique as your love story. No more compromising with off-the-rack options; it’s time to talk custom. With over 30 years of experience as a Master Tailor in clothing alterations and fashion, I’m thrilled to announce our newest service—Custom Wedding Dresses, crafted from start to finish to reflect your vision.

The Consultation: Where Visions Become Plans

Your dream dress starts with a conversation. We delve deep into your aesthetic preferences, venue, time of the year, and any thematic elements you want to include. Lace or satin? A classic A-line or a dramatic ball gown? What about colors—pure white, off-white, or a non-traditional hue? Your wish is literally our command. The consultation sets the stage for the magical transformation ahead.

Fabric Selection: A World of Possibilities

Next, we explore the vast universe of fabrics. From Italian silk to delicate French lace, the options are limitless. Each fabric has a unique feel and flow, affecting not just the look but also the comfort and fit of the dress. Given our longstanding expertise, we guide you through this selection process, ensuring the material aligns with your vision and comfort.

Design Drafting: Your Dream Takes Shape

Once we’ve jotted down all the particulars, it’s time for our designers to draft the initial sketches. You’ll get a range of designs to choose from, complete with potential embellishments like embroidery, beading, or sequins. Feel like a movie star yet? You should because the star of this show is undoubtedly you.

The First Fitting: An Exciting Milestone

A couple of weeks after the design is finalized, we invite you back for the first fitting. The dress at this stage is a rough version of the final product, but it’s an exciting first glimpse at your dream taking form. We meticulously check for fit, comfort, and the fall of the fabric, making adjustments as necessary.

Further Customizations: The Devil is in the Details

After the initial fitting, you can opt for additional customizations. Want pockets to keep that lip gloss close? No problem. A bustle to make dancing easier? Consider it done. We can even add something blue within the inner layers for good luck.

The Final Fitting: A Moment to Cherish

When you return for the final fitting, you’ll find a dress that’s been transformed from a simple sketch to a masterpiece. This is the moment of truth where we ensure every stitch, every bead, and every layer is nothing short of perfection.

Pricing: Investment in a Masterpiece

The cost for a custom wedding dress at Ella’s Alterations is reflective of the skilled craftsmanship and attention to detail invested in every piece. Prices start at $2,000 and can go up depending on complexity, fabric, and customizations. A 50% deposit is required at the start, with the balance due upon final fitting.
