Alterations and 

Final fitting with Adriana

A perfectly fitted dress is key.

Whether you have  a bespoke custom made dress or bought one off-the-rack, the most important part is that the dress fits you flawlessly and you feel comfortable in it. Whether its making it bigger, longer or adding buttons, alterations made by an experienced bridal couturier is absolutely vital for you looking and feeling the most flattering on your big day.

A very expensive designer dress will not look good if it is not fit to your body, and likewise an old, cheap, vintage gown can be made to look a million dollars with the right fit. Each body is different and its important your dress fits your body perfectly, to highlight all your beautiful and unique aspects.

Adriana Cojocaru dresses are made to order, and fittings and alterations are included, but we can also alter or completely change another dress. 


Whether that’s raising the hem, adding a bustle or taking it in a whole dress size, the fittings and alterations process is essential to making sure your wedding dress is perfect.


Our alteration service is world class and you will be taken care of by Adriana Cojocaru personally, an expert in her craft and Central England's Bridal Designer of the Year. She and her highly skilled team of seamstresses and couturiers will ensure you get the perfect fit in time for your big day. 

If you are one of Adriana Cojocaru's brides from the outset, your fittings and alterations will be included and your dress will be made to measure and completely bespoke. If you have already found your dream dress but it needs a few modifications to make it perfect, get in touch for a consultation.

Perhaps you bought a dress off-the-rack and it doesn't quite fit. Maybe you were given a family heirloom you want to modernise or perhaps you have simply changed your mind on a dress you bought. Do not fear, we can completely change the look and feel of a dress by adding or changing lace, adding sleeves, changing the neckline, making it longer or shorter and more. Something as simple as adding a corset back or buttons down the back of a dress can make a drastic change. You will fall in love with your newly altered dress so let Adriana use her design expertise to make it exactly what you want. 

We are also able to add special personal elements to your dress, whether that be your "Something Blue", a hidden lucky charm or a sweet memory patch on the underside of your dress of someone you want to keep close to your heart on the day.
