wedding dress fittings

Whether it's fitting a dress off the rack or tailoring a dress from a boutique, BeFitted is the only bridal alterations firm in the area that specializes in bridal only. We’ll upgrade your wedding dress into your dream dress.

steaming + pressing

A beautifully-fitted dress will fall flat without the proper finishing touches. BeFitted offers steaming and pressing for wedding dresses, veils, and formal gowns, smoothing out those wrinkles that detract from your perfect look.


Think of us as your personal shopper - but for your wedding! We’ve styled hundreds of brides and have all the right recommendations for what could elevate that white dress, into your dream wedding dress, and we stock a selection of veils and accoutrements in-studio.

formal dress fittings

Weddings, galas, showers, parties - clients with formal evening or cocktail wear can get fitted for these special events in life. We offer alterations for Bridesmaids, Maids/Matrons of Honor, and Mothers of the Wedding!

dry cleaning, boxing, + preservation

After the party is over, BeFitted can revive the beauty of your white dress by dry cleaning your dress and boxing/preserving it using our special acid-free tissue paper and preservation methods.

on-site detailing

Have a large wedding party, or don’t want to have to give your dresses a second thought? Our on-site team will steam, press, and prep your entire wedding party’s attire so all you have to do is slip on that dress and you’re ready to go!


what people are saying
