  • Fariba and her team were amazing in altering and pressing my dress to perfectly fit what I had envisioned and for creating the perfect veil made from my mother-in-law's veil! They were so easy and fun to work with. Thank you for making me feel like a princess... I mean, a queen!

  • I brought my mother’s wedding dress in from 1981 and Fariba and her team did the most fabulous job turning into a modern and beautiful dress that was customized perfectly! Thank you Fariba’s!!

  • If you are looking to get your wedding dress altered, I would HIGHLY recommend going to Fariba’s. I recently got married in January, and my dress was so perfect for my special day. The staff was so friendly and made sure I was 100% happy before taking it home.

  • If I could give Fariba 10 stars, I would. Two weeks before my wedding, I ended up buying a new dress off the rack because I was unhappy with the custom dress I had previously purchased elsewhere. I was stressing about the extremely last-minute decision, but Fariba took on my project enthusiastically and assured me I didn't need to worry. She even fit me in to appointments to accommodate my work schedule, and everyone in the shop was so kind and eager to help. Fariba turned the size 8 dress into a size 0, raised the neckline for more coverage, fixed a broken strap, and bustled it beautifully - the end result was a dress that looked like it was custom made for me. Not only did it fit perfectly, but it turned out more beautiful than I ever imagined. It truly was my dream dress, and I received countless compliments on it. Fariba is so talented, so sweet, and a total lifesaver. Whatever your alteration needs are, you will not regret going to Fariba!

  • Fariba is so warm and welcoming and she made me feel special from the very first day I met her! The alterations that were done to my dress included taking some lace from part of the dress and putting it in other places on the dress. The work was so beautifully done that it wasn't possible to tell the dress hadn't been made that way!! Such a talented group of people and such a wonderful experience!!

  • Fariba made all my wedding dress dreams come true!!! I have always known that I wanted to wear my mom’s dress. My mom was married over 30 years ago, so I was disappointed but not surprised to find that the dress was very yellow. It also wouldn’t zip up in the back, so I took it into Fariba with low hopes. However, Fariba was such a godsend. She assured me that she could completely re-do the dress to make it exactly how I wanted it. And she did!! She somehow made it vibrantly white and was even able to re-use all the material from my mom’s dress. Fariba completely understood my vision and brought it to life. I had multiple fittings because she wanted to make sure everything was absolutely perfect. I am so thankful that my wedding planner recommended Fariba! She was also a joy to work with and be around. If you are looking for someone to alter a wedding dress you bought or to completely re-do an old wedding dress, Fariba is your girl. Thank you, Fariba, for the amazing service!!

  • I have to say, I was really nervous about getting my dress altered. I had ordered a dress with an empty illusion top that I wanted to have lace added to by Fariba. I was so afraid that I wasn’t going to be able to achieve the look I was after, and I had never worked with a seamstress before. Let me just say that Fariba put ALL of my concerns to rest. She was absolutely wonderful to work with, as was the rest of her staff. Fariba met my requests with enthusiasm and expertise. I was able to describe what I wanted, and leave her enough creative liberty to achieve a beautiful look. The results were absolutely incredible. Additionally, Fariba made my veil herself - using the leftover lace from my dress. And the veil was absolutely perfect. She was fun to work with, she made me laugh, and I am over the moon with the results. Definitely recommend her and her team to any bride looking to have alterations done!

  • I highly recommend Fariba and her team. They are incredibly professional and kind. I did not know what to expect with alterations and Fariba made everything so easy. She listened to what I wanted and made wonderful recommendations on how to make my dress fit me better. Her team also altered my rehearsal dinner dress with great pricing. Going with Fariba was the best wedding planning decision I made.

  • I was referred to Fariba by Annalise Bridal for alterations. I live 2.5 hours away so to come in for fittings, it took a lot of coordination and flexibility. Fariba and all the ladies who work at the shop and Diley who I would talk whenever I called were wonderful, kind, friendly, and helpful. They did a great job altering my dress. They were amazing to work with. Everything went so smoothly with Fariba's shop and the alterations. All the alterations turned out beautifully. They were also extremely flexible when it came to my appointments. I am so happy and fortunate to have had Fariba do my wedding dress alterations. I also bought a wedding dress belt from Fariba that was perfectly sewed into my dress. It was beautiful!! It was such a smooth experience going to Fariba. She is really talented and I highly recommend anyone to go to Fariba for wedding dress alterations
