Nilah made me look and feel incredible. I also hired her as a wedding coordinator; she was patient, kind and took care of everything so I didn't have to worry. I highly recommend her- not only as a dress-maker and tailor, but as a wedding day coordinator.

Nilah was both my tailor and my day-of wedding coordinator. I highly recommend her for both services. She took my size 12 sample dress and brought it down to a size 2/4. It was a tricky dress and I was terrified it would not end up being flattering. The dress turned out gorgeous. She also revamped my Mom's poofy 1980s veil into something that could go with my more earthy wedding dress. It was absolutely gorgeous and something I never would have considered if she had not encouraged it.
As for her day-of wedding coordination service, I don't know what we would have done with out it. I had planned to save money by not hiring a coordinator, but during one of my final fittings, my mother in-law and I noticed Nilah's service. My mother in-law was gracious enough to pay for it as a gift. It completely eased our minds leading up to and on the day of the wedding. Nilah was in charge and very knowledgable. Thanks to her and her assistant, everything went smoothly. Throughout the cocktail hour they brought my husband and I water and plates of food (it's very difficult to make it to the food table as the bride and groom). They were there for every little thing we needed. It allowed my husband and I, but more importantly our families and bridal parties to enjoy themselves, rather than stressing out. I highly recommend Nilah.

Nilah did the alterations to my wedding dress for my wedding this past January. She did an AMAZING job and I could not have been more thrilled with the final product. Nilah was absolutely wonderful to work with. She is personable, friendly, professional and extremely talented at what she does. She is also very flexible with scheduling - I live in NYC and my wedding was in Philadelphia, but Nilah was so accommodating and was able to make my alterations appointments work with my schedule.
I had my first fitting at the end of October, and my second/final fitting towards the end of December. Both appointments were fantastic - Nilah knew exactly what needed to be done to my dress (taken in and hemmed) and made it happen. I picked up my dress 2 days before my wedding, and Nilah made sure everything was perfect before I left for my venue. I know alterations can be so stressful for some people, and there is nothing worse than an ill-fitting wedding dress, but you can 100% trust the work that Nilah does. She was worth every single penny.

Nilah also has a great selection of accessories in her salon. I found my earrings and hair piece for my wedding day at my first appointment with her. They were gorgeous and worked perfectly with my dress.I highly recommend Nilah & Company!

I had a wonderful experience with Nilah & Co. They were wonderful and accommodating. She made suggestions and gave me great ideas. She did everything she could to help me be worry free. She REALLY listens. And on top of all if that she did an amazing job altering my dress. No one will ever know that it looked any different.

Nilah's work is top-notch! I loved how she is straight-forward and no-nonsense in her business. I bought a sample dress which needed a LOT of creative alterations (size 10 to 0) and she did an amazing job! Also bought one of her hair combs and it was perfect. I got so many compliments on my dress - and I only have Nilah to thank!!

I took my wedding dress to Nilah for alterations (just needed the dress shortened); the prices were fair and the work was great. It is a quick in and out experience and you only need to go twice. She also presses your veil for you before you go to pick up your dress right before the wedding. I would recommend Nilah.

Nilah and her staff did amazing work with my dress and veil. I went to Nilah on a recommendation from 2 different people and I would continue the trend by recommending her services to any one needing work on a bridal gown.

Bought my dress off the rack in NYC but knew I had to get all my fittings done in Philly where I live. Found Nilah through Yelp! where she only had a handful of reviews. Her shop is great-- huge bathroom, cozy waiting room with nice furniture and a great chaise in one of the dressing rooms.

She didn't make me feel bad at all for bringing my dress in just shy of the "standard" 3 months heads-up you should give your tailor. She did an awesome job on my dress and made me feel like I had all the time in the world to ask her questions, figure out what veil I would need, etc. Great staff too. Was about $500 to get my ballroom gown altered (needed to be taken in 2 sizes and hemmed several inches).

I couldn't recommend Nilah highly enough. She was professional and knew exactly what she was doing. I trusted her judgement implicitly. My gown needed almost no alterations (just hemming and bustle) but I know Nilah would have handled a more elaborate job in the same exacting, professional way. Her attention to detail extended right up until I collected my dress, when she noticed "a stitch" (yes, "a" stitch) not to her liking and she corrected it there and then, quickly.

I saw some reviews commenting that Nilah was unfriendly. I found her warm and funny and I loved dealing with her and the other lovely members of her team. Nilah is, it is true, not the "OTT gushy" sort, which personally I found refreshing, as the wedding industry is full of people who are "too much". Thank you, Nilah and Co, for being so accommodating to me and for your marvellous work. I will be back for other alterations in the future
