Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are your hours?
    I see clients on Fridays from 10 to 4. In reality, I am working at all hours of the day and night, but I will return messages and phone calls from Wednesday to Sunday.
  • Where are you located?
    My private boutique and workshop is located in Clarksville, TN. I disclose the address to my clients after booking their appointment.
  • When should I schedule my initial fitting?
    Celebrate your "YES!" by booking your appointment the same day. I recommend you call no less than 6 months before your wedding. From February to October, my books tend to fill three months in advance. We will choose a timeline for your alterations that starts between 6-10 weeks prior to your wedding.
  • What should I bring to my initial fitting?
    - Your dress in it's bag - Your shoes - Your underpinnings (bra, petticoat, Spanx, etc.) - Any fabric, appliqué, or accessories you want sewn to your gown
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    I accept cash, check, venmo, and major credit cards except for AmEx.
  • When is payment due?
    A down payment of $100 plus tax is required within three days of booking your initial appointment. The final payment is due at the Final Try On appointment.
  • Can I bring a friend or relative to my fittings?
    Yes, you may bring one guest to your fittings, they must be over the age of 12. You're not required to bring anyone to your initial fitting, I am happy to help you dress and undress. It's definitely helpful to bring a guest to your Final Try-On so I can teach them how to help you dress and how to put your bustle together.
  • Do you offer a consultation?
    Yes! A consultation consists of a 15 minute phone call with you where you are encouraged to send photos of your gown. A consultation is required to book an appointment. I am not able to give firm quotes over the phone.
  • What should I budget for alterations?
    Standard alterations include hem, bustle, one bodice adjustment, and cups. Budget $500-800 for these alterations. Resizing the gown, adding custom elements such as linings and sleeves, or redesigning can start at $800. A gown that has many layers and embellishments will usually be at the top of the price range while a gown that is less embellished will be at the lower end.
