Thank you for choosing Newbury Tailoring Company for your bridal needs!
Here at NTC, we understand how stressful it can be to plan your wedding. To make things easier for you, we have provided you with a breakdown of our bridal fitting process.
Newbury Tailoring Company’s Story
The Rivas Family is eager to meet your needs and provide excellent tailoring and alterations to your valuable garment. Whether you’re planning your wedding or any other occasion, let us take care of making sure you look great on your special day.
The Complete Process at a Glance:
Before your fitting(s):
- Bring your garment in at least 3 months before the wedding date.
- Be prepared to bring your intended shoes, undergarments, and veil (if applicable).
- The tailoring of your garment for your special day requires three separate fittings.
- Fittings should span about 3 weeks apart.
- In general, the fittings will be assessed in partitions starting with the top of the garment, down.
- Measurements will be taken at each fitting. Weight loss or weight gain requires additional fittings at an additional fee.
We understand family and friends may want to join the experience. Kindly let us know if your party will exceed 3 people and we will be glad to accommodate accordingly!
