The Bridal Loft(specifically Andrea) was recommended to me by my Bridal Consultant (Robin) at Charlottes Bridal. I had a VERY long train and needed an expert in order to wrangle that thing into order/bustle after the ceremony. Every interaction I had with Andrea was fantastic! Not only is she an expert on all things bridal but she is a fun person to be around. I had fun at my alteration appointments. Andrea did an amazing job at fitting my dress to me like a tailor made glove and creating an elaborate 15 point bustle that looked amazing. I highly recommend Bridal Loft to anyone needing alterations for any special event.

Andrea is phenomenal. I went to three different alterations places before picking her to work on my gown. She has a wonderful personality that puts you at ease AND she is funny! She is an expert in her field AND she is affordable! I wouldn't have just picked anyone to work on my $1,800 gown. I knew right away she was experienced and I trusted her with my alterations. My gut was right! I would highly recommend her!!!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Andrea! She basically had to redo my entire gown. I am petite and of course the gown I ordered didn't order in petite sizes. So we had to alter the bodice, the shoulders, the hem. Like seriously crazy work. But it fit me like a glove, and it looked phenomenal. I had so many people say they couldn't believe how well the dress fit me, and how beautiful it looked (clothes have always been awkward!), but seriously. LOVE my dress, and love these ladies. Trust in what they are doing and they deliver results!

Now I am getting a dress altered for bridesmaids and so super affordable!

I worked with Lei at Bridal Loft for my Bridal Gown Alterations based on the recommendation from Charlotte's Bridal where I purchased my gown. Lei was a treat to work with. She didn't waste my time and did the work required so that my dress fit like a dream. She worked with me to find convenient times for fittings so that I could fit it into my busy schedule. It's not easy to trust someone with an expensive, all lace, wedding gown, but Lei is more than competent at what she does. I couldn't have been happier with my experience with Lei and I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of alteration services.

The process of getting my dress altered went well for the first few appointments I attended. As I got closer to my wedding date, and had my last fitting, I found there to be unfinished and/or unnoticed errors which it was too late to adjust.

The bodice of my dress was not directly fitted to my body and created an unflattering look the day of the wedding, but by the time it was discovered it was too late to do anything about it at my last fitting.

Also, the actual bustle of my dress was a disaster the day of the wedding. It was a "french" bustle and had to be redone multiple times until it couldn't be updated any longer due to parts tearing or coming undone. The bottom of my dress (they had to resew the lace after altering it), came apart very early on in the day as well. Extremely frustrating and there was nothing I could do.

For the price I paid for the updates, I certainly wouldn't have expected there to be as many errors on the day of as there were. I was very disappointed as I was told they had worked with the dress before and it felt like there was a lot that was either overlooked or rushed through.

I brought my davids bridal wedding dress into Bridal Loft and the team was amazing. They took my vision and brought it to life. My dress was a simple flare to begin with and they transformed it into a mermaid style which is what I envisioned for a beach wedding. Very pleased with their work

I used The Bridal Loft/Custom Fit 2 You for my bridal alterations. I was fortunate enough that my wedding dress didn't need any other alterations other than a bustle. I still wanted to find someone that other people recommended though; after all, I didn't just want anyone to put pins and needles into my beloved gown. Leialoha Kaula was who I emailed back and forth with my many questions and she was very helpful. She explained the different types of bustles and which she thought were possible for my dress. I ended up getting a French bustle with hooks; something simple and natural looking that didn't fall out during my reception.

The location was a little difficult to find. Even though they have a hand drawn map on their website, I didn't realize it was on the other side of the Standard Dairy Building and there were no signs on MLK that indicated that. After driving back and forth past it a few times, my Matron of Honor and I finally figured it out. Once we were on the correct side of the building, we had to be buzzed into the space, which I liked because the alterations business is upstairs, with no one watching the downstairs area. Once inside, the space was very professional yet serene, offering cubby holes to put your shoes into. Upstairs was a loft, with a small kitchen and table for discussions and a carpeted area with mirrors and accessories for bridal viewing. There was even a room, filled with other dresses, to change in.

The experience was great - Lei was very helpful in making sure to explain exactly how they were going to bustle my dress and made sure my Matron of Honor knew what she'd have to do. Time flew for me, since that was all I needed, and even allowed for my Matron of Honor to consult about alterations on her bridesmaid dress. The best part was their price - the bustle came in under budget, compared to other alterations places I had called and compared them with. Fantastic!

Andrea pressed and steamed my wedding dress--I had to take it on the airplane and it was quite wrinkled when I arrived in Portland. But, Andrea had it wrinkle free and looking great right on time. She even took a few stains out of the hem for me and fixed a small, but noticeable wrinkle in the lining of the dress near the bust, all at no additional cost! She was very friendly and polite. The studio was cute, clean, and organized. She had the dress hanging up for me to see before she packaged it up, which I thought was a nice touch. She also had a special way she folded and then pinned the skirt and train to keep it from re-wrinkling when I took it to the wedding venue. I was very pleased with my experience.
