Mary was fabulous to work with. She was quick to schedule my first appointment, and was very helpful in helping me decide which alterations needed to be done. She made suggestions that I knew the mainstream vendors (david's bridal, etc.) would not be able to make, or would not care to make. She really took a lot of care in my dress and made sure I was happy with it. I would recommend her to all my friends as the pricing was very fair as well, under $450 for everything, which included 4 appts. And not to mention my bustle had 11 touch points....Thaks so much Mary!

I found Mary Burlingame on Angie's List four weeks ago.

I was anticipating the arrival of my wedding gown but did not trust the boutique I ordered it from to provide timely alterations. After some delay, my gown arrive exactly one month before my wedding.

Before I had my dress in hand, I called Mary to see if she could fit me into her schedule. She advised me to call her back when I picked up the dress.

Once I picked up the dress, I called Mary again. She remembered me and made room for me in her busy schedule. We scheduled all four fittings at that time.

I met Mary the next day at her home studio. Mary has transformed her entire basement into an alterations studio. It is a very clean and professional workspace. I instantly felt comfortable around Mary and always looked forward to our appointments.

From the moment I met Mary, it was clear that she has unique knowledge pertaining to wedding dresses. She is confident in handling these complex dresses and is open to exploring creative options.

On my final fitting, she showed my maid of honor how to tie the corset and bustle my dress. I'm so happy that Mary taught us how to do this because when she put me into my dress is looked better than when I tried it on at the boutique.

Mary is a wedding gown expert and I am so happy I found her on Angie's List.

Mary did the alterations for my wedding dress and was absolutely amazing in every way! My dress came with a ribbon to lace the corset back in a strange color, and Mary was able to swap it out with a ribbon she had that matched my dress perfectly! I would highly recommend Mary to anyone who wants to make sure their dress fits and looks perfect on their wedding day!

Mary Burlingame, owner of Bridal Alterations, is absolutely wonderful. I currently live in Rockford IL but made the 1.5 hour drive to Mary for my wedding dress alterations. I will admit, it was a hike. But it was well worth it! Mary is professional, polite, and knowledgable. And she did a wonderful job with my wedding dress. I was so comfortable in my dress by the time she was done. She was able to tailor the dress to my figure such that I wish I could look like I did that day, everyday! I appreciate Mary and her expertise.

Mary did a beautiful alteration for me! and quickly, as I found out just 2 weeks before my wedding that I needed her! She seemed to effortlessly do my sizing and measurements, and quickly do the alterations. Not only that, but I rented a fur "jacket" from her that completely made the cooler day possible for me to take pictures outside and added a ton of elegance to the day! Her positive and bright attitude made it fun to meet with her, and she took care completely of everything with my attire for the day. I am grateful to her more than I can say, and intend to use her for other alterations of "regular" clothing as well!

Mary is absolutely fabulous! She is very detail oriented and definitely knows what she is doing. My dress fit me perfectly and I could not have asked for a better person to do it. If you are looking for a professional who will get the job done right the 1st time, definitely choose Mary. My wedding was in December 2012 and my dress was the perfect length for the snow and my shoes.

Mary is a fantastic seamstress. I got married October 7 th 2011,I went to her to alter my beautiful Simone Carvalli Wedding dress and she was able to do exactly what I wanted. It was some what short notice she was so kind and understood what I was looking for. .Mary does impeccable alterations and is also warm and welcoming. Her prices are fair and her work is fantastic. I would highly recommend Mary for anyone who needs alterations
Mary is the most helpful, professional, organized and knowledgeable seamstress I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. She is classy and empathetic and gave a detailed lesson to my bustle whiteness. She even gave my bride’s maid a diploma certifying her status as official bustle maid. We just loved her.

I used Mary to alter my dress - she had amazing ideas!! I have always loved buttons down the back of wedding dresses, but mine came with a zipper. I didn't even think to ask that we switch it to buttons - but she made the suggestion and I am SO glad she did! The dress looked amazing and I love that she made it original. VERY REASONABLY PRICED! You will not find anyone else with her skill at this price point!!

Mary was wonderful. Very professional. My dress fit wonderfully for my big day. She also did my maid of honors(who had a baby a month before the wedding) and knew the places to leave a little extra room. Mary brought our dresses to cleaners for the pressing after my final fitting. Wonderful experience.

Mary is wonderful! I wanted a lot of changes made to my dress and she was able to do them all! Her prices were so reasonable - about 1/2 of what I was told at the store where I purchased my dress. You can google her to find her info. She works out of her home; she does an amazing job!
