What are we up to in the Alterations Department?


Our gorgeous brides have us busy busy busy this time of year pumping out amazing designs and creativity in the Alterations Department! Thank goodness for our team of professional tailors who each have their background and specialty.  LOVE working with brides who push our creativity to the max with the requests you ladies are sending our way.

No two brides are EVER alike at Ava's Bridal Couture and Classy Concepts Bridal Boutique! That's what makes this part of our job so exciting and rewarding. One of the biggest requests we are seeing is sleeves.  Not just full length sleeves, but all sorts of styles that are creative and fun to transform a strapless dress into a masterpiece.

One of the biggest questions we get asked in store is "When should I begin my alterations?"
If you are a plan ahead gal like me, start them when you have reached your goal weight and do not plan to fluctuate -OR- 3 months before your need by date (which ever comes first).

3 months ahead gives you a step ahead by planning early.  Planning ahead of schedule is never a bad way to get ready for your wedding if you can!  When you are ready to book, give us a call at Ava's Bridal Couture, Fort Worth 817-732-4457 and at Classy Concepts Bridal, Mansfield 817-473-2100.

Other brides will book their first fitting 2 months before the need by date.  This works well as well and works well for brides who do not want to plan 3 months ahead.  It can get short on time though because the bride is detailing her catering, RSVP, name cards and final details that can be time consuming.  Hang in there, you are doing a great job handing work, life, love and wedding plans!

I am proud of each of you who are taking each task one at a time because you have so many options now and so many creative ways of brainstorming your wedding day planning - it's unreal how many options brides have today!

If you are waiting till the last minute to lose weight or to reach a goal you have for yourself, we can accommodate a rush order that is due within 30 days of your need by date with a small rush fee.  This allows you to start your alterations closer to the wedding day.

Beat Leukemia Ball - Omni Hotel Fort Worth

Very special night gettin' fancy with good friends and family!  The Beat Leukemia Ball is an event that raises money for leukemia research through Leukemia Texas, an organization that raises funds to support families who have been impacted by leukemia.  Honored to enjoy an elegant evening at the table of Mr and Mrs Heath.    One of the coolest parts of the program was the patient speaker, Katie.  She is 13 years old and has battled her 2nd round with leukemia .  Leukemia Texas was there for financial and emotional support when She began her treatment.  She completed a bone marrow transplant, but soon after the cancer was back.  The 2nd diagnosis being even harder than the first, Katie's parents decided to try a new type of treatment since the transplant was unsuccessful the first time.  Katie gave positive words along side her family - younger brother Maverick, Dad and Mom had special words to say.   How would she describe herself in one word?  "Optimistic".  That sh…
