Alterations By Michelle

69 Parish Farm Rd, Branford Ct 06405, (203-483-9221)

Wedding season is in full swing, and the world is STILL gushing over the royal wedding, and even more so over Meghan Markle’s wedding dress. 

Acclaimed British Designer Clare Weight Keller designed the Givenchy gown that captivated an audience of millions, and (according to an article in Time.com)- Markle’s custom designed dress costs approximately $300,000 to $500,000. (What?!!)

That being said, every bride-to-be wants to feel like a princess in her own special way, but not every bride-to-be has a royal budget. Popular wedding dress shops such as Kleinfeld Bridal charge nearly $700 as a base alteration fee. Depending on the detail, and amount of alterations needed, the prices only increase from there.  

With such hefty prices it can be difficult for any bride to fit a dress to her unique style.  Should a bride customize her gown, or should she compromise? What is a girl to do??

Worry not Connecticut Brides! Connecticut Socials would like to recommend, Alterations by Michelle in Branford CT.  Michelle runs her small business from her home,  and she can fit, fluff, and make fabulous even the most ill-fitting dresses.  Her five star reviews on weddingwire.com, facebook, and yelp prove she can make any bride sparkle like Meghan Markle.

Michelle will book, and change appointments with NO hassle- and most importantly- her prices are fair, and far cheaper than upscale bridal boutiques. 

The amount of thank you cards Michelle has from previous clients hanging in her work space is just a small testament to the quality service she provides.

We've included a few first hand photos of her work- be sure to spread the word this wedding season, and book your appointment with Michelle today!
