  • I was very nervous about getting my wedding dress altered, as I needed the lace and beaded bodice tightened. The alterations were perfect — it fit like a glove and there was no sign that work had been done.

  • I was referred to Susan by one of my good friends, and she was worth every penny. I brought in a simple wedding gown that I needed altered and wanted to add a little something extra too, and we created the perfect overskirt that was exactly what I had in my head. She is patient, listens to your requests, and will do whatever she can to give you a perfect product. Keep Susan in mind for all of your alterations needs!

  • Susan did a beautiful job adjusting my dress. I came to her with a dress and topper that were several sizes too large and had a short amount of time. She was able to completely take apart the topper and put back together perfectly. The wedding dresser has very fair prices and provides a high quality and professional service. Highly recommend!

  • I am so thankful I went to the Wedding Dresser for my alterations and all my styling! Susan and her team were attentive, thorough and detailed. Susan is definitely an expert and she and her team exude professionalism and experience. My dress was the Cassia from BHLDN and was loaded with tulle - they helped guide me through a bustle that worked wonders and did not look unattractive as some bustles can! It looked beautiful and she altered the dress to perfection! The dress fit me like a glove and Susan was able to keep in tune with my weight loss leading up the wedding so that when the day came, I fit in perfectly. Everyone said my dress was a dream and I believe that is because the talented and experienced TWD team took care of my alterations. My dress had a ton of intricate and delicate beading and Susan and her team handled it with ease. Special shout out to Schuyler who was so nice and helpful - and obviously talented at what he does too! Now on to my accessories, I was feeling a bit... Read more

  • I wore my mom's dress from her wedding. The dress fit me pretty well, but after sitting in my mom's closet for more than 20 years, it needed some work. It was a bit wrinkled and needed a good cleaning. Some things needed to be fixed and there were some minor alterations it needed. After 3 fittings with Susan, the dress fit me perfect like it was made for me! the dry cleaning got out stains from 20 years ago, and all the wrinkles were gone.

  • After 6 months of dress shopping at EVERY boutique in the NYC area, I amazingly found my dream dress at David’s Bridal! That said, it LOOKED like a couture piece from a much higher end store (a trumpet shape with all over beading and lace and buttons and ruffles on the skirt), and when I had first asked the seamstress at DB about alterations, she cocked her head to the side and said she’d never done that dress and started suggesting the weirdest looking bustle. NOPE. I knew I had to look elsewhere for my alterations on this particular dress. I’m so glad I did my research because Susan was AMAZING. I was instantly drawn to the fact that she has a costuming/theatre background (I’m a performer myself and if a wedding dress isn’t a “costume” I don’t know what is!) and I knew I’d be in good hands with her work. I was able to make an appointment on relatively short notice about 6 weeks out with Susan who was sweet and extremely professional and has an amazing eye for detail... Read more

  • Lovvveeedddd the way my dress fit me! I was suppose to be married in Puerto Rico in November 2017, but didn't because of Hurricane Maria. I went for my first wedding fitting in September 2017, a few days after the hurricane. I didn't know if we were to still marry at that time. Susan was very understanding and said she would hold my dress until everything settle down. I ended up cancelling and rescheduling my wedding four months later in Brooklyn. Susan even gave me advice on where to look for a venue. She honored the prices from 2017 and still gave me my three dress fittings. I had lost 13 pounds and went down a few dress sizes. My dress was big on me and had to be taken in. Fast forward to my last fitting -My dress was perfect! I loved it. It fit me like a glove! Everyone at Wedding Dresser was professional and accommodating. I will have to come back and post my professional pictures and more details of my dress!

  • Susan and her team are amazing! From the minute I met her I knew I was in the right place. She listened to my ideas and offered her insight, ideas and suggestions and they were greatly appreciated and valued! Her entire team is amazing, professional and truly gifted at what they do! After our initial meeting- I had no doubts or concerns that I was in great hands and that my dress would be altered perfectly. Every appointment I went to was seamless and amazing and I was never rushed at any appointment. I am so glad to have found this amazing place and team... thank you!!!

  • Susan and her team did an amazing job modernizing my dress. It was my mother’s and she made me feel so comfortable and I knew the product would be great. She was able to update the dress while keeping it with the same major features. I could not be happier with the outcome!

    Thank you for the lovely review Brynna! Restyling your vintage wedding gown was a fun journey! I was so pleased with the results changing the lining from pink to ivory and happy that we found a lace so close to the original vintage lace.

  • Susan Ruddie came to us through Gabriella bridal salon where we purchased the dress. Susan was incredible to work with. Very precise, detail oriented and expert in her alterations. She also ended up altering my rehearsal dinner dress for me. I highly recommend her.

  • The Wedding Dresser team did an incredible job altering my dress and were lovely to work with! My dress was a sample and needed some minor adjustments, and by my final fitting with Susan and Schuyler it fit perfectly. They were so flexible and listened to my concerns, offering suggestions and styling ideas. Tressa was really helpful in scheduling follow-up fittings and finding time in their calendar, especially in the weeks leading up to the wedding which I really appreciated. One thing that sets The Wedding Dresser apart are the accessories they offer in-house, and the option to try out different accessories during fitting appointments with your dress and getting a second opinion. I ended up choosing one of their cathedral veils which worked perfectly! The only snag I experienced was my bustle breaking during cocktail hour, but luckily had a friend on hand who easily repaired it. In the grand scheme of things, it was a small issue and other than that, my dress fit like a dream. I'd hi... Read more

  • I found Susan via Yelp and I had a great experience with her. My wedding was on Sept. 2, but I was going to be traveling for six months leading up to the wedding and I needed my dress to be hemmed and altered. Luckily, Susan and her team were very accommodating and did a fantastic job. I only came in for one fitting in June and the next time I saw my dress was a few days before the wedding. It turned out wonderfully!

  • I fell in love with a BHLDN dress online and snapped it up when it came back to their site in my size only - then I crossed my fingers. It arrived, as lovely as I imagined, but as a larger-busted bride, the delicate and fairly unsupportive dress needed some work to make it support and flatter my body. I was terrified that alterations would destroy a dress so gossamer and perfect I never tried on another, so I knew the wedding alterations team I chose would have to be a great one. I did my research. LOTS OF IT. And again and again, Susan and her team were it. Susan’s theater experience, and decades of bridal expertise mean she knows any garment, any age, all body types, inside and out. This was a woman who would respect and understand a beautiful dress, and find a way to make it work. I went to her original space for my first fitting - a tulle, ostrich, rhinestone wonderland - and could tell immediately that my experience would go perfectly. She developed a plan to attach a detach... Read more

  • I bought my dress online and had it custom sized, so I had done a pretty good job at getting it to fit well on my body. When I brought it here to get altered, I needed to take in the chest, add straps, and add a bustle. Susan and her team were very helpful and did a great job with my alterations. I had minimal work done to the dress, so bringing it in for the first time 12 weeks before the wedding during the off-season was plenty of time to get all the alterations done. Susan also suggested I rent a short fur shawl for the photos since the weather was cooler for my autumn wedding. I ended up spending more money on the alterations than I did on the dress, but I knew I would have a hard time finding a dress to fit my petite frame and larger chest, and Susan did a great job perfecting my dress.
