Blessed hands! Amazing work and very sweet lady. My wedding dress was a tulle over satin, completely beaded dress with crystals and they did a great job. She adjusted the bodice to perfection and hem it. Even though there was a lot to hem she managed to sew in all the beading and lace and no one can say that dress was worked on! She also managed to pick up the train in a very elegant manner. One thing is all alterations have to be done with time. I did mine 6 months before the wedding. She is quite busy and she does everything on time for everyone, therefore the earlier the better. Thank you so much Lauras' Couture

I purchased my dress in Canada but my wedding was in Houston. I was nervous about going to a seamstress in a different country and one not known by the bridal salon where I bought my dress.
I phoned several Houston bridal salons and asked for recommendations on where to go. After visiting 3 different seamstresses and receiving quotes, Laura's was on-par with the other three locations for price. What differentiated them is their kindness. Since I moved to Houston without any family and my bridal party all in different cities, my appointments were just me - so I needed to feel like they cared and would give me honest advice - which they did.

Carmine was very sweet, and knew exactly what I needed to get done. Once I explained what I wanted, her expert hands just started pining away. She had to reconstruct the arm holes, add in boning to support the dress better, and take in parts of the dress to create the silhouette I wanted - so a fair amount of work. My dress was beaded and with lace, so a lot of intricate details too!

The dress fit like a glove on my wedding.

I am so happy with Laura Alterations that I came straight to the computer to leave a review.
My dress looks gorgeous thanks to their great work!
I almost went to a cheaper place, which I am glad I didn't, because they are totally worth it.
Thank you sooo much!!!! :)

Laura did a great job. She transformed my dress, and made it fit perfectly. I would recommend her to anyone needing alterations. I chose her because she had such great reviews, and she did not disappoint.

The wedding store I ordered my couture wedding dress from recommended a size based on my measurements, but when it arrived, it was almost 4 sizes too small and, because it was couture, I had signed a no returns agreement! There wasn't enough time to lose enough weight to make up the difference, but the experts at Laura's Couture & Alterations saved the day.. They literally took apart every single seam in my dress and resewed it giving me the extra inches I needed to be able to be comfortable on my wedding day. They also raised the hem to match my shoe height, created 3 layers of beautiful bustles in back and made me some cap sleeves out of my extra tulle that I could snap off after the church ceremony. The bustles were color coded yet invisible, making my dress easy to adjust and beautiful. The prices at Laura's are expensive. Very expensive, for me it was like buying a 2nd wedding gown, but it was 100% worth every penny. As an added bonus, the staff was wonderful to work with. I wish they did other tailoring too because I would send them my entire wardrobe.
