Make Your Ideal Wedding Dress Perfect For You With Fittings
Congratulations! You finally found the perfect dress –the one that was made just for you! Well… sort of. Every bride’s body and every bride’s accessories are unique. As a result, your dress will require at least a few alterations. Then

you. Here’s what you should expect, and what’s expected of you, once you say “yes” to that dress, and how the team at Promises Bridal will turn your dream into a reality.
