Susan Ruddie came to us through Gabriella bridal salon where we purchased the dress. Susan was incredible to work with. Very precise, detail oriented and expert in her alterations. She also ended up altering my rehearsal dinner dress for me. I highly recommend her.

I bought my dress online and had it custom sized, so I had done a pretty good job at getting it to fit well on my body. When I brought it here to get altered, I needed to take in the chest, add straps, and add a bustle. Susan and her team were very helpful and did a great job with my alterations. I had minimal work done to the dress, so bringing it in for the first time 12 weeks before the wedding during the off-season was plenty of time to get all the alterations done. Susan also suggested I rent a short fur shawl for the photos since the weather was cooler for my autumn wedding. I ended up spending more money on the alterations than I did on the dress, but I knew I would have a hard time finding a dress to fit my petite frame and larger chest, and Susan did a great job perfecting my dress.

Schuyler was amazing! He came to the venue and, while we were having our hair and makeup done, steamed my dress, veil, sash, and all of our shawls. My dress had undergone a car ride from the midwest to NYC and was significantly wrinkled up until the morning of the wedding. By the time he had finished up, the dress was perfect. He also tied my sash with a gorgeous bow and helped me put on my veil. Throughout the entire experience, Schuyler was warm, helpful, and incredibly detail-oriented. I am so happy he was there!

I decided to try out Susan based on all the glowing reviews I'm so glad I did! Her space is a little bit unconventional - not a storefront, but inside a residential Brooklyn apartment building. That's part of its charm. When you walk in for your first fitting, you see the many accessories she has for sale along the wall - many pieces that have a vintage look. Her lovely assistant Tressa helps you get in and out of the gown, and Susan gives careful consideration to your dress and your needs. My dress has a chiffon overlay on top of beautiful lace, and she designed my bustle to allow the lace to peak through in the back - a really unique, personal touch that looked BEAUTIFUL. She made a video on how to fasten the bustle that was very helpful to my Maid of Honor on the Day-Of. One little snag I hit was that I left my wedding shoes at her apartment during my final fitting and I only realized the day before the wedding! Susan was kind enough to offer to courier the shoes to the hotel I was getting ready the next day. I was nervous, but when I got to the hotel, sure enough, they were there waiting for me with the concierge. Now THAT'S service!

Susan has a kind and gentle way that makes working with her really a pleasure. She did a flawless job on my couture gown, and I have to say, I'm sad I have no more excuses to go see her! One last note of recommendation - I opted for 2 hours of their "Dressing Service" on my wedding day, which was FANTASTIC. I originally booked it because I simply needed someone to steam my dress, but it turned out the person they sent was a professional Fashion Stylist named Stacie. Stacie arrived at my hotel to steam my dress, advise on where to fasten an heirloom broach to my dress; then she came with me to the venue to "fluff" me for the Pro photos. She and my photographer got along great, and I have to say they were really a dream team! So if you're on the fence about the Dressing Service - don't hesitate, it's worth it.

The Wedding Dresser does impeccable work. My dress fit me like a glove and the workmanship was so quality. The Wedding Dresser's office is in an apartment in Flatbush, Brooklyn. It is cramped and very warm in the summer and not that easy to get to. However, the quality of the work more than made up for that inconvenience. Plus, they are planning to move to a more centrally located workspace in the near future. Definitely book your alterations ahead to avoid a time crunch because their schedule gets pretty full. Also, be prepared for a seamstress with a rather tough exterior - but, really, how tough can you be if weddings and love are your trade!? Full marks for The Wedding Dresser!

An all-around great experience working with Susan and her team! I had purchased my wedding gown online and needed a few alterations. Booking appointments was easy and the fittings went smoothly. My dress was done in just 2 quick appointments about a month before my wedding day. Thank you for making the dress look as if it were made specifically for me!

I was introduced to Susan by my wedding planner. I wanted a dresser to help me get ready on the big day and to help my parents and my large bridal party with any wardrobe issues. This was one of the best wedding decisions I made because Susan gave me the wonderful Stacie as my stylist. I don’t know what I would have done without her. She prepped my dress, helped my parents and maids of honor get ready and she even helped place my dress during pictures (my photographer loved her!) We did a first look and photos before the actual ceremony and Stacie made sure we all looked just as fresh as we did earlier in the day. She was such a savior and I am so thankful to have had her with me on my big day.

Great alteration shop located in an apartment building in Leffert's Garden, Brooklyn. Susan the shop owner is awesome--super friendly and gives you slot of attention when you are there. The people who work in her shop are great too, everyone makes you feel comfortable. Pricing was straight forward although a bit on the high side. I had multiple dresses altered and they all came out great. Susan was very detail oriented and able to fix very tricky dresses (Indian wedding dress) and make them all look great. They offer accessories as well so I picked out my wedding earrings here after being dissapointed with everything else I found online and in stores. Good price on the jewelry. Only thing to note is it is a bit hard to get to. Depending on where you live, you might want to take a cab to avoid carting your stuff on the subway and there is a fair bit of Brooklyn traffic in that area so give yourself plenty of time for travel.

I was sent to Susan two days before my wedding - the original seamstress missed something on my dress and was no longer available to fix it. In less than an hour, Susan and her team had completely fixed the issue. Additionally, Susan came up with another undergarment option for me, as my first one didn't seem to be working. So fast, so easy - wishing I had come to Susan from the start! Her whole team was so sweet. Thanks again, guys!!

I purchased my dress at a sample sale, and there was A LOT of work to do. Susan and her team did a great job explaining everything that needed to be done, the complexity of it, but reassuring me I was in great hands. Each fitting was quick and professional, and my dress turned out perfectly! The pricing was extremely reasonable... no one's better than Susan and her team!
