Bridal Alterations Stouffville
Wedding Dress Alterations
At Tanis Emmett Wedding Style, we create an unforgettable bridal alterations experience for our brides and their bridal parties. Your one-on-one bridal alteration service begins with a personal consultation at our Stouffville studio, and ends with the perfect fit on your big day!
We strive to make all our consultations and appointments a stress-free and enjoyable experience! When you book your bridal alterations appointment with us, we don’t just pin your wedding dress – we’ll work with you to ensure the fit and style of your garment are customized to you! We’re happy to explain our process, show you multiple bustle options and help you choose or customize accessories to complete your bridal look!
Our Alterations Process
On your first fitting, we will pin your dress to assess what needs to be altered. You will need to bring the undergarments and shoes you plan to wear on your special day. If you wear a C-cup or smaller, we offer cups that can be sewn into your dress in place of a bra, for an extra fee. At this fitting, the tailor will book your second fitting. As far as our payment schedule works, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit at this time and the final balance will be settled at your second fitting. Depending on your dress style, at your first fitting, we can discuss if you would like to move forward with a hoop rental. Hoop rentals require a $50 refundable deposit upon return of the hoop.
On your second fitting, we recommend bringing someone who can help you get ready on your special day. It’s important to bring someone who our team can train to care for your dress at your wedding. We will teach this person how to bustle the dress, lace-up the corset (if applicable) and also reveal some helpful tips to solve possible dress emergencies. At this fitting, the tailor will book your final visit to pick up your perfectly fit dress!
Your third fitting is offered to ensure there are no additional tweaks or changes needed for your gown.
On your final visit, you will pick up your altered and steam-cleaned dress and any additional pieces you may have ordered.
*For our destination wedding brides, or brides who may be travelling for the big day, we will show you how to package your gown for travel to ensure a wrinkle-free garment.
Frequently Asked Questions
We offer consultations to assess your garment and provide you an estimate. At this 30-minute appointment, you are able to chat with our team to explore all the fit options for your special day and understand how much to budget for your bridal alterations. A $50 (+tax) consultation fee applies. Should you select our team to be a part of your day, the full consultation fee is credited to your alterations bill.
If you’re happy with our service and your estimate, we will then book you in for your first fitting with our team!
We also offer consultations for your bridal party – including bridesmaids, mothers of the bride and groom and flower girls – to help them budget for your special day.
*These consultations are also available for graduates and prom girls.
Typically we tell our Brides to budget $500+ for standard bridal alterations. With that said it
can be less or more depending on the work being done. We do recommend booking in for a consultation. Our consultations are $50.00 (+tax) and will help you with your budgeting. As our
pricing is based on the work being done the consultation will give you and our team a better
idea of the work involved. If you feel ready to take to next steps in booking with our team we
would simply apply your consultation fee right into your alteration work!

The ladies here are so lovely to work with. Although I live downtown Toronto, I drove nearly an hour just to get my dress altered here because they came so highly recommended. My dress turned out perfectly and the service here was just exceptional. All in all an amazing experience […]! My dress was perfect! Thank you for making my vision turn into a reality.
