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.

I absolutely loved my experience with Laura's Couture & Alterations! I was late getting my dress altered and was working late hours at the time, and they were flexible with my schedule and finished my dress quickly. My dress was a sample, and Karime made it look better than new. I got so many compliments on the dress and the bustle.

I was so happy with their services and can't recommend them enough! Such warm people who make your dress alteration experience fun and stress free. My dress was altered in several ways and I was worried about the end result but it turned out to be outstanding. They are definitely on the higher side $$ so prepare to spend on the alterations =)

They were very friendly and kind. I loved Karime; she listened to my questions and needs attentively and explained everything so well. My dress has a lace bodice with many crystals. I asked for them to add cap sleeves and to raise the height of the bust line as well as taking it in at the hips. It was Perfect. It's like the dress was originally made that way. I'm so glad I came to them. Excellent. :-)

I purchased a Lazaro Tara Keeley gown for my wedding day. On 2 different occasions, I saw brides wearing the gown and each time, I did not like it. I showed the seamtress at the store where I purchased the gown photos of how I did not want the dress to fit. After leaving them, something was NOT right with the dress. Carime immediately saw the problem and addressed it. She makes the dress appear that it is painted on you. She contours the garment to fit the curves if your body in a way that no one else can.

Karime was amazing! I purchased a very delicate, couture dress that had to be taken in several sizes and have the neckline altered. Karime was able to make small snips and pin the neckline and dress so I had a good idea of what it would look like (while still being reversible if I didn't like it) before she did the alterations. She listened carefully to what I wanted and made great suggestions to make the dress more flattering. Karime designs and makes dresses so I trusted her to basically remake my already expensive dress. The result was even better than I expected! She was great to work with and did little extra things for me. Reasonable pricing. I will definitely go back to Karime if I ever need any evening wear made or clothing altered. Couldn't be happier with my choice to work with Karime!

This place was fabulous. I was really desperate after having another place really mess up my bustle and alterations not once but twice. So I was desperate by the time I came here and needed my alterations done in less than a month. They were timely, professional, and got it perfect the first time. She also made some wonderful suggestions on some other tiny fixes that made the fit so much better and was something that the other place said they couldn't do. I was so happy with the alterations and the best thing is that the price was actually less expensive than the previous place I had went to and their attention to detail was so much better. I would highly recommend them for any wedding gown alterations.

Fabulous place to go!! I had to make a last minute appointment because Alfred Angelo quoted me $270 for alterations on my $425 dress. They were able to get me in and get my dress altered in time! The quality of work was amazing. I had forgotten my wedding shoes for the alterations and the tailor was able to estimate for me perfectly! I also didnt feel like they were trying to rob me blind. I asked about taking my dress in more, and the tailor made suggestions not to. She said and I quote "It wont make a big difference so save yourself $70" I thought that was awesome

My wedding dress turned out PERFECT!! Karime is AMAZING! Being 5'2", I had to shorten my dress, which had many layers. Also, I wanted my strapless top altered to a sweetheart neckline. I couldn't believe how amazing my dress looked! Karime is a very talented lady. The price of the alterations were more than reasonable, especially for all the work that had to be done. She and Fabio (the office manager) were so warm, cool, and collected. Don't go anywhere else to get your wedding dress altered. This is your wedding dress, so you need to go to the BEST. You will be happy that you were able to wear your dream dress on your wedding day. I sure did. Thank you, Karime and Fabio, for making our wedding day so special. And to allow me to feel like the beautiful bride I was hoping for!!

I couldn't believe how amazing my dress looked! Karime is a very talented lady. The price of the alterations were more than reasonable, especially for all the work that had to be done. She and Fabio (the office manager) were so warm, cool, and collected. Don't go anywhere else to get your wedding dress altered. This is your wedding dress, so you need to go to the BEST. You will be happy that you were able to wear your dream dress on your wedding day. I sure did. Thank you, Karime and Fabio, for making our wedding day so special. And to allow me to feel like the beautiful bride I was hoping for!! Read less

I received dozens of comments about how beautiful my dress was, and specifically about how well it FIT. The bodice was absolutely perfect for my body, so much so that people actually commented on it. That is how good a job Laura's did. Not only that, but I was stuck in rush hour traffic on the way to the shop, and they actually kept the shop open for a half hour past closing for me to do my final fitting. They also custom-made my veil and it was PERFECT--a beautiful cathedral-length masterpiece. I absolutely recommend them and would send my sisters, friends, daughters, anyone there for bridal alterations. I'm so glad I found this shop.

Did a wonderful job! In the past I have not had good experiences with alterations, so when it came to my wedding dress I wanted to go to someone who could meet my expectations. They exceeded my expectations and did such detailed work! Both my mom (who is hard to please & impress) & I were very impressed with their work! Highly recommend!

Karime was great! I bought a sample that was 2 sizes too big for me, and she made it fit like a glove. She even fixed my neckline and beading of the dress. She was very nice, flexible, and she delivered when she sid she would. I think the prices are on the higher end, but it's worth for quality work!!

Having Karime perform the alterations for my wedding dress was one of the best decisions I made. She takes great pride in her work and you can tell that she truly enjoys her job. She is a perfectionist and really took the time to make sure my dress fit perfectly. Her prices were reasonable and I could have not asked for a better experience. Thank you so very much Karime!

They took the time to listen to my needs and were very patient with me. My dress is a high end dress and I was scared to take it to just any alteration company in fear that they might mess it up. However , they put my fear to rest. My dress turned out even more perfect than I could ever imagine. I was very pleased with their work!! Highly recommend this place!!

My wedding dress was perfect except for the length. since my dress was half mermaid style and had lots of rousing at the bottom I was a little worried about how it was going to be able to be altered without ruining the design. Laura's Couture Alterations did a stupendous job. you couldn't even tell they altered it after it was done. she did nothing to the bottom instead she took the time to completely detach the bottom of the skirt from the dress where the rousing started and alter it from there to avoid ruining the design. I also had a belt added to my dress and she took the time to take the pearl buttons going down the back out and sew the belt in and then re sew the buttons back on over the belt to make it look like the belt came on the dress already. the dress was flawless and they did an amazing job!

I had a great experience with Fabio and Karime. I didn't need to get a lot of alterations done but I was very happy with how Karime was able to do exactly what was needed to make my dress fit perfectly! Everything was done in timely fashion and they were always in contact with me to confirm appointments. After my bridal shoot my dress had a couple of noticeable stains on it and I was afraid it wouldn't come off, but Fabio and his staff did a wonderful job and my dress was perfect for my wedding day! They didn't even charge me for the extra cleaning! I highly recommend them!

It was wonderful to work with Karime and Laura- they took good care of me and listened to my concerns and ideas about how I wanted my dress altered. Karime is one of the best Houston area tailors and made my gorgeous dress fit like a glove!

Her bustles are especially pretty and unique- I've never seen a bustle that makes the dress look even prettier like hers do!

We were so impressed that we asked her to alter my mothers dress also.

I would definitely recommend this vendor to anyone who needs quality alterations and great service.

I would recommend her to anyone based on her skill alone, but the fact that she is so nice and sweet makes her services all the more better.

I was very very happy with the outcome of my gown. I have a corset back gown that simply needed alterations for the length and a bussle; however she also altered a few sections in the bust area. It turned out very beautiful, I love my gown even more! She was very attentive to details and what I was comfortable with. I would recommend her to anyone.

I bought my dress at David's Bridal. I had tried on several dresses and loved the one I bought, except for one thing. It wasn't a sweetheart neckline. David's Bridal offered to "pin it" in the middle to make it "appear" sweetheart. I was nervous from the beginning to have David's Bridal do my alterations, so I took my dress to Princess Bridal in Spring, Texas. Karime with Laura's Couture & Alterations did an amazing job! It took one appointment for pinning and measurements, and at my second appointment it fit perfectly and the sweetheart neckline looked like it had been made that way from the start. My dress is PERFECT thanks to Karime. You can't trust just anyone with your dress, but brides you CAN trust this vendor!

Karime Morales is a wedding dress genius. I ordered a dress from Encore Bridal (if you want a designer dress in perfect condition for a fraction of the price, this is your place) online - it was a beautiful Jenny Lee dress, but it didn't fit (I didn't expect it to). Karime altered it beautifully and created the most gorgeous bustle. I have 2 other friends getting married this year, and both opted to go with Karime at Laura's Couture and Alterations rather than having alterations done at the bridal salons where their dresses were purchsed. She will clean your dress, as well (mine had a few dirty spots after bridal portraits), and is so kind and professional. I would highly recommend having alterations done by her!

All I can say is that the wedding gown I brought to her for alteration came out better than when it was not yet altered. She seemed like she had a magic wand that fixed ALL the parts of the gown that needed to be fixed. It felt so good when I tried it on and I am excited to wear it coz I know that the gown is perfectly fitted on me. Karime, more power to you! You are soooo good!

Laura's Couture and Alterations did a GREAT job with my dress. I was nervous about having it altered because it's all lace with beading, but they really knew what they were doing. They got it done quickly (a month after the first fitting, I went in for the second fitting and got to take home my dress!), and the price was affordable. Their office is a little hard to find because there's no sign for them outside the office building, but otherwise, great experience!

Wonderful experience!!! I've been telling everyone that she is absolutely magical! I got my dress from Alfred Angelo, and girls be warned. Between flower girls, bridesmaid, and my dress we worked with Alfred Angelos in 4 different cities and states and ALL of the dresses were measured wrong, therefore alterations would have to cost a lot more. Crooks. Laura's Couture did a wonderful job taking in my dress! On my first fitting it felt 22 sizes too big. By my second fitting I felt like a princess! It looked like she changed my body rather than the dress my waist looked so small! She really knows a woman's body. She put a button on the top of the dress so it can't go too tight and give me bulging back fat, but made it so the waist can be pulled nice and tight! I don't know how she did it, but it beyond exceeded my expectations! She even packaged it up for me so that I can travel to my destination wedding with it. Love, love, love Laura's Coture!

Everyone LOVED my dress and I know it couldn't have been possible without the help of Karime and Fabio. They both were very flexible and a pleasure to work with. I often went back and forth on exactly what I wanted to do with my dress (we were creating it each time I went in) so that seemed to cause a little confusion...that is the only reason I ranked "Responsiveness" a little lower. I think sometimes my ideas got lost in translation and we had to go back and redo a couple of items....however Karime ALWAYS did this with a smile on her face and never seemed upset by the changes. The dress ended up costing a lot more than I ever anticipated but once I got all the complements at the wedding...I knew it was all worth it!!

Wonderful alterations, specializing in wedding gowns! The seamstress knew exactly how to make my dress fit my specific body type. She listened to all my concerns, and was very attentive to all the little details. My dress is full lace, and I was worried about steaming it or, concerned about how we could modify the lace. At my first fitting all of those concerns went out the window. I felt confident that I was leaving my dress in very capable hands! The dress fit perfectly, felt great, and all of the beautiful lace remained impeccable! Worth the price to feel comfortable when putting your wedding dress in someone else's hands.

Great customer service. Easy to schedule appointments. Would highly recommend.

I was a first time client of this company so was not sure what to expect. The rave reviews online coupled with the very convenient location sealed the deal for me since I did not have time to research a lot of places.

Karime and her staff were very nice and efficient. She made a lot of alterations for me and though I don't know how her prices compare with other companies it seemed reasonable given how much work was involved (shortening of a floor length gown, adding bra cups, taking in a lot of the waist/hip area, and retaining all of the awesome ruched/folded fabric in the style). I think I paid about $150.

I will be returning for another bridesmaid dress alteration in May.

The quality of her work was great. And she would find things to fix that I didn't even notice...you can tell she has a high standard of quality for herself. I do think she's a litle pricier, but for my wedding dress I was willing to pay to make sure the work was done right. And she offered to clean my dress herself after my engagement photos rather than risk taking it to a cleaner. Overall I was beyond satisfied with her work. And she is a lovely person to work with.

I needed a lot of work done to my dress, from tightening the waist by a full size, shortening the straps, tightening the bust so that it didn’t bulge open, adding a bustle, and adding custom cap sleeves to the shoulders. It took a while for the seamstress to understand what kind of cap sleeve I meant, but my MOH finally explained it well enough. After the first alteration, the waist was WAY too tight. They had tightened it A LOT b/c the majority of my dress’ structure came from the waist, but I couldn’t breathe. It took a bit of convincing that I wasn’t just a crying wolf, but eventually we agreed to have it let out about ¼ inch. Overall, the alterations took 2 tries, and the final product was PERFECT! I’m very pleased with the final product, and it fit great on the wedding day!

For the most part, everyone was very friendly and professional. But, after I made my first appointment a month ahead, I called a few days prior to confirm but they had no record of my appointment. Fortunately, they had the same slot open, so it worked out. But that could have been a big problem. They also don’t like booking more than one appointment at a time or booking far in advance. On top of that, their hours aren’t the best. I get that they don’t want to work late, but many brides have full-time jobs and can’t get to a fitting before 5pm anyway, so they should reconsider their hours. Apart from that, they were easy to work with. The store is also in an odd place, the fourth floor of an office building. It’s not terribly chic, but rent in the Galleria area is probably pretty expensive. Regardless, the quality of the work speaks volumes above the building and the hours. The overall cost was VERY reasonable considering the amount of work done.

I loved my final dress, and I would definitely recommend them to other brides.

I don't like being the person to write the lowest review for a vendor, but I feel like I did not get the same level of service that the rest of the reviewers here did and I feel like people need to know that even someone as highly rated as Laura's Couture can screw up and totally ruin your wedding planning experience.

When we first went to Laura's they were still in a tiny little house with the seamstress shop in the back. They were in the process of moving and the seamstress, Karma, was sick, so she was probably not on her A-game. I was measured and fitted and pinned and everything went swimmingly, though she forgot to put cups in the dress until the last second, which might be where all my problems started. I live in Austin but we're getting married in Houston, so we came back to town a month later to their new location in the Galleria area and tried on the dress with the alterations. It fit well everywhere except for the bodice which was so tight around the chest I couldn't breathe and had skin rolls in the back when we fastened the eyelets at the top of the zipper. She told me that she would let it out half an inch and that I didn't need to come back to town to try it back on but that my mom, who lives in Houston, could pick it up a week later. Agreeing to that was a huge mistake and we never should have done it.

Two weeks later I was back in town and tried the dress on at my parents' house and it was STILL way too tight around the bodice. She hadn't let it out at all and I know what you're thinking and no I did not gain any weight. I took it seriously when she told me to not gain or lose weight and had been monitoring myself very carefully. Because it was a Sunday we had to make another appointment for the next weekend and I had to drive to and from Houston in one day to make it work with my schedule. At the appointment that Saturday, Karma was nearly an hour late getting to us even though her husband/business manager kept telling us "she'll just be ten more minutes". When we finally got in, she remeasured me and then asked us to wait while she made the alterations right then and there which is exactly what should have happened the first time. When I tried the dress back on again I could FINALLY breathe in it and there were no skin rolls in the back. She had to keep the dress to make the alterations permanent, and when my mom went back to pick up the dress three days later the business manager/husband made her sign a waiver saying any more alterations were not the responsibility of Laura's Couture before he would give her the dress. That's fine because if Karma screwed up again we would be stupid to take it back to her, but it was still rude. We were not being unreasonable with our expectations and none of the alterations necessary were our fault.

Let this be a warning to anyone using any seamstress for their wedding dress: never, ever, ever, ever give payment in full for a dress until you are certain you are 100% satisfied with it. We were naive, thinking that because she is one of the highest rated on weddingwire that we could trust her that much. Don't trust any vendor that much and avoid the frazzled nerves and extreme annoyance that we had to go through. Wedding planning is hard enough without experiences like this.

My 1st fitting was done and I had returned for the 2nd fitting to find my dress was not completed. The waistline was not sewen back together and they had to quickly finish it before giving it back to me. Had an appointment Feb 29th at "home address" only to find out they had moved. No communication given on change of address. They tried to tell me I was told when I called for my appointment (all my appointments were made at the shop except for the 1st one). Was told change of addresss was posted to website, but I had no reason to go to website if I had an appointment already. Was told they would meet me at a "gas station" to pick up dress, as I refused to go to the Galleria area (I dont go anywhere in the downtown/Galleria areas ever by myself). They informed me I was for pressing only, but as it turns out, I needed to have the entire dress altered with a lace up corset to have it fit (I needed another fitting).Was told they would refund $45 for the pressing of my dress, but have not seen any money from them.
Also, I wish to warn any other brides to watch where they have their "security" camera, I believe I was watched at the old address as the camera was pointed directly at the changing area that was curtained off.

They stained my dress and completely disregarded the fact that they did. When I asked for further alterations done to my dress (basically to fix what they had done), they acted as if I was a complete moron and ungrateful. The man was so rude to me I started crying and he acted as if scheduling another appointment was such a waste of his time. He had such an attitude with me that I was flustered. He obviously has never had much customer service experience if he is going to be rude with a stressed out bride. They did not act at all accomodating. They inserted cups into the dress that made me look like a porn star. I took them out, simplest thing I have ever done. Just two snips and they were out. Something they charged me an arm and a leg for were cut out of my dress in less than a minute. I would not waste my time or money ever going back there. Found another seamstress who is not only fixing their mistake but also taking in my dress, something that Laura Couture said I did not need. For half the price mind you. Also, they said that the dress would be steamed and cleaned, yeah I guess my dress missed out on laundry day.

What a MESS. UGH. We asked Laura's Couture and Alterations to cut the length of the wedding gown and make a bustle. OMG. My daughter's dress was made of silk. The first try on.... 3 large buttons were placed on her bottom that stuck out for the bustle. They had to take the buttons off...and lo and behold made holes in the dress. Thank God there was a lace overlay. We went to collect the dress the day before the wedding, and the dress was all packed to go. I told her we need to try it on. What a disaster. ..the holes and extra loops from the previous bustle were still there. When we said why are holes/patches present in the dress--they blamed the holes on the silk. To tie the bustle, you need a lot of time and patience- there were about 12 buttons and loops coordinated with different color threads. Just imagine something that should take only a few minutes now took about 1/2 an hour. Yet, the bustle was still dragging on the floor. I lost my cool and they threatened to call the police. I wished they did. They charged me $500.00, and the day of the wedding--my daughter did not use the bustle because of the time it would take to arrange the bustle. What an experience.
