Our Alterations Department

As of April 10, 2018, we are limiting alterations to only bridal gowns for the near term.

Summer has been diagnosed with breast cancer and we are working to overcome this obstacle. Please know our team is working at peak capacity. As such, we are in contact with other outside seamstresses and tailoring businesses to help pick-up the slack.

Ella Park Bridal offers in-house alterations as an optional service exclusively to our customers. Since we only alter the gowns we sell, we specialize in our designer’s gowns and their complex details, such as the boning, hems and bustles.  Please note alterations are a separate fee and cannot be started until all balances are paid.  While your gown is stored here, it is insured until you pick it up.  After your alterations are completed, we will conduct a full bridal steam on your gown so you are ready to walk down the aisle.

Our Alterations Team

Summer, our Alterations Manager, manages this department with three other seamstresses. They have over 35 years of experience in bridal and formal wear.  You will find Summer and her team to be very knowledgeable, creative and easy-going with a customer-focused approach.

Limited Alterations Availability | Due to limited resources, we no longer can guarantee alterations availability on every dress sold. In order to reserve your spot in our alterations schedule, you must call and setup your first fitting 3 months prior to your wedding.  Gowns arriving less than 3 months before the wedding will not have the opportunity to use alterations. [/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title="Appointments Required" icon=""] Appointment Required | Alterations are available Monday through Friday by appointment only.  To schedule your appointment, you may call our Alterations Department directly at 812.853.8595. [/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title="What to Bring" icon=""] In order to obtain the proper fit, you will need to bring your shoes and shaping undergarments (optional).  We cannot alter a hem without shoes… even if you plan on wearing flats.  You will continue to bring these same items with you to every fitting appointment. [/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title="Who to Bring" icon=""] Your fittings are an exciting time, and it is natural to want to share them with your family and friends. We recommend having your mom, a trusted relative, or friend accompany you to your fittings for another set of eyes and reliable opinion.  This is especially important during your Final Bridal Fitting.  We will show them how to put you in your gown and how to bustle your train.
