Mon Amie Bridal Salon is proud to provide a highly skilled staff for those brides who choose to use our services. Alterations are by appointment only. This is an additional charge, not included in the price of the wedding gown. All brides are given an alteration estimate at the time of purchase, by the bridal manager, who assisted in the size selection. Please keep in mind that this is an estimate only. Any custom work or additional alterations that may not have been discussed at the time of your original alterations estimate may lead to additional costs.
Hours of Operations for the Alterations Department
Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday: CLOSED
Thursday & Friday: 10 - 4
Saturday: Reserved for out of town brides
Please call the customer service department for possible availability.
Suggestions for Scheduling Your Alterations:
Walk-ins are not accepted in the Alterations Department. An appointment is required for alterations to be made.
We recommend you schedule your alterations appointment 6-8 weeks before your wedding date. You will be charged a 15% rush fee if you choose to have your alterations completed under the recommended time allotment.
Please call for an appointment 3 to 4 weeks in advance of the actual needed appointment date. This will insure that you have the best opportunity of securing the appointment most convenient to your schedule
What You Will Need
It is very important that you have your undergarments (bra, slip, etc.) and shoes for all your alterations appointments. We require this to insure that all is as you would like it. The shoes and slip will determine the length of your gown and the bra will help for the foundation of your bodice.
We welcome you to look at Mon Amie’s selection of beautiful shoes, accessories, veils and more. We have a very large selection for your convenience
We will not be able to begin your alterations without these items.
You are required to bring all these items to every alterations appointment.
What to Expect
In general, you will have 2 alterations appointments with your seamstress. The first appointment will take about one hour and the seamstress will pin your gown. The scheduling of your second appointment will be arranged by you and your seamstress during the first fitting. Please keep in mind, if you should choose not to have your alterations done during this first appointment, you will be charged a $25 pinning fee.
At your second appointment, you will see the work that has been done on your gown. If you need any finishing alterations, you and your seamstress may need to arrange another appointment.
Gown and veil pressing are services that are offered by Mon Amie Bridal as an additional charge. Gowns and veils will not automatically be pressed.
Pressed items are typically picked up by the bride the week of the wedding. If someone else will be picking up your items in your place, you will need to sign a Merchandise Release form. Please fill one out at one of your appointments or call Customer Service and one can be faxed or emailed to you. No gown will be released without written permission.
At the time of your first fitting you will be asked to arrange a pressing pick-up date.
Your gown balance must be paid before your alterations can begin.
If you do require additional alterations after your first fitting, you may incur further charges. Your seamstress will discuss this with you if this situation should arise.
In the event you need to change an appointment once your gown is in the process of alterations, your seamstress may need to charge a 15% rush fee if the appointment change conflicts with the 6-8 week time line stated above.
