My experience with Janice was unlike anything I have ever experienced, her talents, grace, patience and natural ability to understand and bring to life my ideas and dream dress blew my mind and expectations! I was hesitant as a bride to put my trust into a designer to make my gown from scratch but Janice designed my dress with ease, every step of the process was comfortable, reassuring and promising- she is a one of a kind at what she does and how she interacts with her clients, I felt confident in the process because of how she guided me. I wish I could have two weddings just so I can have another one of her designs!❤️The dress fit like a glove and I felt like royalty, the fabric was beyond beautiful and the detailing on the bust was so intricate!👌🏼 I highly recommend every single bride to meet with Janice and see her work first hand. Thank you for creating my very own couture dream dress!

From the moment my mum & I met Janice we both knew we wanted her to help create my dream dress. I wanted to wear my mum's original wedding dress with some changes to suit me and considering it is such a sentimental piece we both felt at ease knowing she was going to look after the dress. The final product is beyond my expectation. It's absolutely beautiful. I can't thank her enough. As like many brides in 2020, the wedding has been moved from 16th May 2020, most likely until next year & given this Janice has still offered to help next year for any alterations if needed. Thank you again Janice. I Highly recommend White Lace.

Is it cheaper to buy a dress and get it altered or have it made from scratch?

I was surprised that the alterations quote for a dress I was looking at came in at $500... now I'm thinking is it better to have a dress made?

White Lace

I wouldn't use the word cheaper, as they both have their uniquenesses depending on what a bride would consider paying for the absolute dress of her dreams and what it is worth to her emotionally. 

Admittedly Bespoke wedding dresses can be relatively costly as it involves the process of creating a completely unique design from scratch for the bride. 

However if a bride finds her dress she loves at a bridal boutique it will most likely need alterations, which can add hundreds of dollars to the dress budget. So the thing is to consider alteration costs when you begin the search for your dress.

Best regards

How long do wedding dress alterations usually take?

I'm really worried that I've left dress shopping too late and with only 3 months until my wedding, I'm stressing I won't have time to get my dream dress done in time. So how long do the alterations normally take, if I have to get my dress taken up or taken in?

White Lace

I usually give a 6-8week timeframe prior to your wedding date. I would suggest you book in a pin-up fitting, when I would give you a wriiten obligation-free quote and if you're agreeable to the price, we book in a date for you to pick up your dress, (once you've tried it on). If there are any further tweaks to be done they would be very minimal. I hope this helps in proceeding with getting your dress alterations done. 

Best Regards


How much do wedding dress alterations cost?

Hi, I had a quote for wedding dress alterations for around $470 to do alterations on the shoulder, take in the skirt around hip and thighs and shorten the hem. Is it too much or is that about right? Thank you in advance x

White Lace

Rarely do made-to-order wedding gowns fit a bride perfectly and judging from your question perhaps if in doubt get a second quote. However the amount of $470 is not unreasonable and hopefully the dressmaker may have seen the dress on you to see how it fits and exactly what needs to be done.
Alteration charges range differently from one dressmaker to another. Generally, the price of alterations is not included in the cost of the gown so it is important to budget for the cost of alterations when assessing your bridal budget. 
For the most important dress you will ever get to wear, you would want it to fit perfectly. The descriptions are understandably quite vague since it's not from a dressmakers point of view. The dress could be made with a plain fabric with no embellishment or it could be beaded or lace, or the skirt may have many layers, etc etc there are so many factors to consider in bridal alterations. Ultimately there is no easy answer to the cost of alterations and as a dressmaker I would be hesitant to give a quote without seeing the dress on a bride. You're on the right track to ask the question of cost but if faced with a higher quote, you may have to compare expertise versus cost to do the job to your satisfaction.
It is an extra cost and you would want your alterations to be done with expertise to make you look like a princess in your dress.
Hope this answers your question. 
Warmest regards
