bridalp1Tailoring by Rios specializes in bridal alterations. We have developed a reputation as the best bridal tailors in North Texas. We offer a wide range of services for wedding gowns and bridesmaids.

We allow an hour per fitting appointment, however it rarely takes the full hour, usually only 30-45 minutes. We suggest starting the process 8-12 weeks before the first time you need the dress. For example, if you’re doing bridal pictures before the wedding, start 8-12 weeks before the pictures.

Typically, a wedding dress will require 3 fittings. The first fitting will be initial pinning and consultation to discuss any changes you want to make. The second fitting involves a basted fitting (the alterations will be prepared by hand and not cut or finished). At this point, we fine-tune and adjust any alterations. At the final fitting, the dress is completely finished, but we ask you to try it on again to make sure you’re happy with everything.

Our pricing is based only on the alterations that are completed – we do not charge for fittings. Occasionally, we may ask you to do an extra fitting or two if the alterations are more involved. This would not affect the final price, it’s only so we can do a better job. We will quote you an estimate immediately after the first fitting. Should you choose not to leave the dress with us, there will be no charge. If you do decide to leave the dress with us, we ask for an initial minimum deposit of $100. The balance can be divided among the fittings or paid at the final fitting.
