  • 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.

  • I was introduced to Susan by my wedding planner. I wanted a dresser to help me get ready on the big day and to help my parents and my large bridal party with any wardrobe issues. This was one of the best wedding decisions I made because Susan gave me the wonderful Stacie as my stylist. I don’t know what I would have done without her. She prepped my dress, helped my parents and maids of honor get ready and she even helped place my dress during pictures (my photographer loved her!) We did a first look and photos before the actual ceremony and Stacie made sure we all looked just as fresh as we did earlier in the day. She was such a savior and I am so thankful to have had her with me on my big day.

  • Schuyler was amazing! He came to the venue and, while we were having our hair and makeup done, steamed my dress, veil, sash, and all of our shawls. My dress had undergone a car ride from the midwest to NYC and was significantly wrinkled up until the morning of the wedding. By the time he had finished up, the dress was perfect. He also tied my sash with a gorgeous bow and helped me put on my veil. Throughout the entire experience, Schuyler was warm, helpful, and incredibly detail-oriented. I am so happy he was there!

  • I decided to use Susan and her team based in part on online reviews, so let me advise the next round of brides: hire them! I had a lovely experience getting fitting and alterations here with a sample dress I bought online for 50% off. No pressure to do anything I didn't want, which can be a relief in the upselling world of wedding dress shopping. Susan, Schuyler, Tressa, and everyone else were friendly and relaxed. My wedding dress looked beautiful and felt comfortable-- you're in excellent hands with these guys.

  • I decided to try out Susan based on all the glowing reviews I'm so glad I did! Her space is a little bit unconventional - not a storefront, but inside a residential Brooklyn apartment building. That's part of its charm. When you walk in for your first fitting, you see the many accessories she has for sale along the wall - many pieces that have a vintage look. Her lovely assistant Tressa helps you get in and out of the gown, and Susan gives careful consideration to your dress and your needs. My dress has a chiffon overlay on top of beautiful lace, and she designed my bustle to allow the lace to peak through in the back - a really unique, personal touch that looked BEAUTIFUL. She made a video on how to fasten the bustle that was very helpful to my Maid of Honor on the Day-Of. One little snag I hit was that I left my wedding shoes at her apartment during my final fitting and I only realized the day before the wedding! Susan was kind enough to offer to courier the shoes to the hote... Read more

  • An all-around great experience working with Susan and her team! I had purchased my wedding gown online and needed a few alterations. Booking appointments was easy and the fittings went smoothly. My dress was done in just 2 quick appointments about a month before my wedding day. Thank you for making the dress look as if it were made specifically for me!

  • I was sent to Susan two days before my wedding - the original seamstress missed something on my dress and was no longer available to fix it. In less than an hour, Susan and her team had completely fixed the issue. Additionally, Susan came up with another undergarment option for me, as my first one didn't seem to be working. So fast, so easy - wishing I had come to Susan from the start! Her whole team was so sweet. Thanks again, guys!!

  • I purchased my dress at a sample sale, and there was A LOT of work to do. Susan and her team did a great job explaining everything that needed to be done, the complexity of it, but reassuring me I was in great hands. Each fitting was quick and professional, and my dress turned out perfectly! The pricing was extremely reasonable... no one's better than Susan and her team!

  • I got my dress from Lovely. As they don't have in-house tailors, I needed to find someone to help with my dress -- and the vendors they recommended were both expensive and located in Manhattan. My mom did some additional research and found Susan. After reading the New York Times article about her, we decided she would likely be a good fit. I was expecting to just be hiring a tailor, but in the end Susan also ended up supplying most of my accessories as well. She custom-made my cathedral-length veil with blusher (for half the price I was prepared to pay at Lovely); I also bought my hairpiece there, a pair of vintage crystal earrings, and, in a last-minute decision, a pair of long gloves. It was much more convenient to be able to pick out accessories with the dress, and overall her accessories were just as elegant, if not more so, than those at the fancy wedding boutiques at half the price. My gown was form-fitting, so it required a lot of work in terms of alterations. Susan and he... Read more

  • I just want to express my gratitude for the work you and your team did on my reception dress. I was extremely impressed with the efficiency that was used to complete my dress in three weeks time. The fact that you were able to turn a wedding dress into a comfortable and perfect fit, reception dress was amazing. Everyone was in love with the dress and I was able to dance the night away. If I have any future dress alterations, I will not hesitate to visit your boutique. I thank you once again and encourage anyone who has any alterations to be made to visit you pronto. Thank you for your great work and contributing to making my wedding day a memorable occasion.

  • I can't stress enough what a GREAT experience I had working with Susan and the her team at The Wedding Dresser! I came in with a vintage dress from the 50's, that had a bit of dry rot, and she delicately restored the dress at a VERY REASONABLE price. Seriously, I had the loveliest time working with her and never felt like I was being price gouged, upsold, or any of the other things I've heard from brides dealing with alterations and such. I would--without a doubt!--recommend Susan and her team to anyone that needs work done on their wedding dress, especially those of the vintage variety. These folks are pros!

  • The Wedding Dresser does impeccable work. My dress fit me like a glove and the workmanship was so quality. The Wedding Dresser's office is in an apartment in Flatbush, Brooklyn. It is cramped and very warm in the summer and not that easy to get to. However, the quality of the work more than made up for that inconvenience. Plus, they are planning to move to a more centrally located workspace in the near future. Definitely book your alterations ahead to avoid a time crunch because their schedule gets pretty full. Also, be prepared for a seamstress with a rather tough exterior - but, really, how tough can you be if weddings and love are your trade!? Full marks for The Wedding Dresser!

  • Great alteration shop located in an apartment building in Leffert's Garden, Brooklyn. Susan the shop owner is awesome--super friendly and gives you slot of attention when you are there. The people who work in her shop are great too, everyone makes you feel comfortable. Pricing was straight forward although a bit on the high side. I had multiple dresses altered and they all came out great. Susan was very detail oriented and able to fix very tricky dresses (Indian wedding dress) and make them all look great. They offer accessories as well so I picked out my wedding earrings here after being dissapointed with everything else I found online and in stores. Good price on the jewelry. Only thing to note is it is a bit hard to get to. Depending on where you live, you might want to take a cab to avoid carting your stuff on the subway and there is a fair bit of Brooklyn traffic in that area so give yourself plenty of time for travel.

  • Susan and the team updated and revamped my mother's wedding dress from 1959. They worked tirelessly to get everything right and make the major alterations that the dress needed. The value was amazing, given the work they had to do.
