Most bridal boutiques will only sell general sizes (they are not made to measure) therefore normally alterations are required. The reasons for this are due to varying body shapes and heights within every particular dress size.
Common alterations usually entail a skirt hem (if a dress is too long) or can involve bodice or bust alterations.
If a dress has been altered the details should be shown in the advert, if not you can query the seller or view the alterations during an appointment.
Yes this is possible and often happens within the bridal industry. However, you need to find a good seamstress that is experienced.
It is normally easier to make larger sizes smaller than letting out the seams on a small dress to make it bigger.
You also need to consider the material, as certain fabrics can leave alteration marks or have limitations when adjusting.
Checking the “seam allowance” is another useful tip as certain dresses have extra material hidden within their seams to allow for adjustments.
Skirts can be hemmed and shortened many times but usually a hem cannot be dropped back down once a skirt has been reduced in length.
If you are contemplating a particular dress but you are unsure about the alterations, seek advise from your local seamstress to see if the adjustments you are considering are possible.
We specialise in listing dress adverts only therefore we do not require outlets. Any dresses on this site are sold by individuals or by bridal boutiques.
"Label" is the size actually shown inside a wedding dress and "Street" size is the general size of a person when shopping in a normal outlet store.
Labels sizes found inside bridal dresses can vary depending on the type of designer. For example, some will use US sizing while others will use UK sizing. If you are unsure about the size of a dress on this site refer to the Street size label and then further clarify this when contacting the seller.
If you are interested in making an appointment to view a particular dress...
Yes. All you need to do is contact the seller of the dress you are interested in and ask to arrange an appointment.
On every advert displayed on The Wedding Dress Link there is a clearly marked price. Some sellers however, select the option to consider “Best Offer”, which can be found in the advert listing section. You can then email the seller to discuss prices.
The cost to post a dress is usually the responsibility of the buyer and is not normally included in the price. Simply ask the seller for a quote that includes recorded delivery to track and insure your dress.
There are a number of different factors that can affect the cost of shipping or posting a dress for example the...
We would suggest you or the seller contacts a delivery service such as UPS or FedEx for quotes. Make sure you ask for insurance that covers the cost of the dress and insist that a signature is required on delivery.
We suggest that you arrange an appointment to view the dress first and then once you decide to make a purchase you simply arrange the best method of payment between you and the seller. (Note The Wedding Dress Link site does not facilitate any payment methods).
If it is not possible to meet with the seller we suggest that you use a secure payment method that can provide buyer protection such as PayPal.
(Be careful with other online payment services, as these may not be secure).
For the majority of situations these tips may seem extreme but it is always best to abide by them to ensure security.
One common scam is when sellers ask for a payment to cover “Import fees” when shipping from abroad. If you receive a message like this DO NOT send any payments and report any fraudulent behaviour to firstname.lastname@example.org
