I loved my dress after they altered it. I bought mine at sample sale at Kleinfeld and referred me to them. They really know how to alter dresses. My dress had like 6-7 layers with a lot of beadings and my dress was 2 sizes too large (I wear 4 but bought 10) by they fixed it beautifully, I was very pleased with the way it came out. It wasn't cheap, but had 2 fittings and 3rd time, they took the time to dress and undress me.

i needed a bustle for my dress and they did a great job with all the beading and lace that my dress had. i ended up getting my veil here as well. The staff was super nice. It seemed a little expensive, but it is your wedding dress after all!

I took my designer sample wedding gown to Pinpoint Bridal in February of this year, after being referred there by 3 different bridal salons. The dress is a Stephen Yearick gown with heavy satin and extensive bead work.

At my first fitting, the dress was still way too big and needed more alterations. There was a section in the middle that was not laying flat and the bust line did not fit properly and it was sticking out in the hip area.

At my next appointment, the dress fit even worse. I was told that I lost weight needed a bra and that she could not bring the dress up to the appropriate neck line. She also tried to up-charge me $140 due to her not realizing how much work the dress needed. I was able to negotiate this down to $40, however this business practice concerned me greatly.

I went and purchased a bra and returned for a 3rd time only to find that now she needed to sew the bra into the dress, she needed to cut the dress open and make more alterations, which she proceeded to do while I was still wearing the dress. She asked me to come back the next day with a bra and she would finish up. It was now 1 week from my wedding and this was causing a lot of undo stress.

I returned the next day with the same bra only for her accuse me of changing the bra because now it would not work and she could not sew it in as she promised the day before. I also noticed that the sides of the dress still didn't fit properly and that she needed to further take in the bust area. Once again, my dress was on the floor being cut open to remove padding etc while I'm standing there. I was told to leave the dress with her again and pick it up the night prior to flying out for my wedding.

On the wedding day, the bust line looked horrible, it was too low, and made me look like I had extra fat, the midsection did not lay flat and the over all appearance looked sloppy.

Wedding dress alterations done here and in the end it all turned out good and fit well, but the whole process leading up to it was stressful. As with Alison M. I had a sample dress and also had a longer timeline until my wedding, which I'm pretty sure means, they don't do any alterations until right before, because the same thing happened, where the alterations weren't actually complete or done until the very last one. I also had a bunching near the waist/bustline and she kept arguing with me until I pointed it out ecplicitly in the mirror and also had my sister take a picture and then she finally said, ok maybe I see it.

They never replaced a crystal they said they would. They can NEVER find your dress. Whatever you do don't loose your ticket number, because they do not save things by name.

On top of all that, I had the entire thing quoted and priced and paid half upfront, it included the alterations, cleaning and press, it was all written on this little piece of paper. Then at the last fitting it was a different woman and she tried to charge me extra for cleaning, but cleaning was written ON THE RECEIPT. I could see it, I pointed to it. And she replied "Yes but it should be a separate item" and I said well maybe its because I first came last year and prices were different and she wouldn't honor the ticket as it was written and added $50 onto a check that was already fully written out to include tailoring, clean and press. Then she had the nerve to try to ask for cash only instead of credit card for final payment. What a rip off.

If you want to keep your sanity, don't go here.

PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE FOR ALTERATIONS ON YOUR WEDDING DRESS. They pretend to be "cheaper than the competition" but they are not. And their services are DEFINITELY NOT BETTER. Every time I went there to have a fitting, there was another bride in tears. It made me nervous, but my dress was easy and not much had to be done, so it was okay. BUT, the day of my Wedding, 2 hours before the ceremony when I'm getting into my gown, the zipper doesn't work. One of the teeth were off. Luckily, my Wedding planner was amazing and there was a seamstress across the street who ran over and fixed the problem within 45 minutes, but that didn't help with the stress of the day. I was a very easy going bride and not much bothered me the day of the Wedding, but this was annoying and you DON'T want this to happen to you. DO NO GO HERE -- SERIOUSLY. NOT WORTH THE STRESS just to save a hundred or two bucks.
