Since wedding gowns and attendants' dresses are ordered according to a size chart and because most of our bodies aren't made in designer proportions, most people will need alterations to make their dress fit like a glove. Brides and their bridal parties also tend to lose weight before the big day and will need the dress taken in. Most dresses can be made smaller by several sizes and can be made larger by about an inch while still maintaining the shape of the dress.
In our experience, some bridesmaids find out they will be welcoming a little one into the world after they have already ordered their bridesmaid dress. Most designers offer fabric by the yard, and most of the time, we can order the fabric and have our seamstress add the fabric to the dress. Problem solved!
