There's no such thing as a perfect wedding dress bought off a store. If anything, you still have to make it perfect. Pre-sewn bridal dresses would have to be altered to make it look really great on you. The question now is, "How do you choose a seamstress to modify your wedding gown?"
1. Find yourself a talented seamstress whose expertise is bridal dresses.
Not all seamstresses are alike. Each of them has specialties of their own. Look for the one whose specialty lies on wedding gowns. That way, you will be able to ask for the most unusual elements added to your gown and still get the best results.
2. Look for a seamstress that can give you professional suggestions.
Sometimes, what you like isn't the best for you. If your seamstress can easily yet professionally point that out, then you may just have found the best person for the job.
3. Check the price.
Seamstresses would definitely charge for any changes made on your dress. If you can first ask how much a particular alteration would cost, do so. If the price sounds good, you can proceed.

Here are some pictures from my wedding on January 3, 2010 in Boracay, Philippines.
My dress was style no. L1009 Belsoie/Jasmine. I received so many compliments on it and people couldn't believe it was a bridesmaid dress! Thank you again for helping me choose and alter the perfect dress for my wedding day.
Jordan and I were married on October 11 2009. When he first saw me in my dress, he cried - it must have been all the emotion AND the stunning dress!!! I am so happy to have purchased my wedding dress at Best for Bride because it was an enjoyable process and the result was excellent. I did not feel the need to shop around to other stores because I knew immediately you had a great selection, fair prices and knowledgeable and friendly service. Your staff were helpful as I tried on dress after dress and the final alterations were a perfect fit. Now I am just looking for another occasion to wear this gorgeous dress!
Our wedding was on June 30, 2009 in Cuba, at the Melia Las Dunas. We had a beautiful outdoor ceremony...in the 35C heat. But it's ok, we jumped into the ocean and the pool afterward to cool off :) Thank you for helping me make my dress dreams come true (and saving me almost 600$! )
P.S. The dress is still perfect!
