Welcome to TJ'S BRIDALS & FORMALS information page. We are the premier provider of ALL GARMENT ALTERATIONS. Our goal is to provide the very best in alterations . Because our quality control standards are high, designers are among the best in the business. Our goal is to always deliver quality service. We want you, our valued customer, to be happy. Here is a SHORT / COMPLETE list of How we perform services.

Many gowns need at least some sort of alteration, but keep in mind that your alteration issues can vary greatly, depending on where you got your gown and how many changes need to be made. But if your expectations are in order and you go to the right seamstress or tailor, you should be ready for your wedding day with a gown that fits flawlessly.

Timing Is Everything. It's important to time your alterations right. Bring your gown in too early, and you might not end up with a proper fit. (You may lose or gain weight after your gown is altered, which could affect the dress' overall look and fit.) Bring your gown in too late, and you run the risk of not allowing enough time to have all the changes made. Bring your gown three months from the time of your first fitting to your last, as an ideal timeline to make all the alterations. Also keep in mind that the amount of times you need to go for fittings depends on how much you're getting done to the gown -- on average, most brides go for three to four fittings.

Alterations

"Most reputable wedding gown shops usually offer alterations on new gowns -- in other words, your local dry cleaner might not know the intricacies of formal eveningwear. Wedding gowns have so many complex details -- from boning to hems and bustles -- it's best to to com to Tj's Bridals a professional alteration shop who will have seen and worked on such gown components in the past.

What to Bring

When you're ready for alterations, don't just bring your gown, also take your undergarments, shoes, and accessories to your fittings as well. With all of the pieces in place, it'll be easier to envision your overall wedding day look -- you should have your undergarments and shoes on hand in order to obtain the proper fit and length of your gown, and your hair accessories or veil will help ensure you've got the right balance. If you don't have the exact shoe you'll be wearing, bring something similar in height so you don't wind up tripping over your dress on your wedding day.

Who to Bring

While you might have legions of bridesmaids, it's not a good idea to bring them all to your fittings. You might want to have your mom, another trusted relative, or friend accompany you to your fittings, just for another set of eyes and another reliable opinion. And because your maid of honor will need to know how to create the bustle, it's a good idea to bring her to your last fitting so she can learn how your gown works
