"Let me start by saying I researched A LOT of alterations companies in the valley. I have heard so many horror stories of girls taking their dresses into shops and having terrible experiences, and because I waited until only 2 months before my wedding to get my dress altered, I needed everything done right the first time."
"I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all your hard work on my dress alterations! Every time I came in for a fitting your staff was very welcoming and kind to both myself & my mom. I was really nervous about where to take my dress, but your entire team made the process so easy. My dress was perfect the day of & I was happy to find out you do dress preservation (I know it's in good hands). Thanks again for everything!"
"I went to Suzanne’s wanting to create my own wedding dress and I was a little anxious cause I don’t know anything about creating a dress! I had my mom's dress and another one I got secondhand. After speaking to her about what I wanted and her telling me what I possible, she put together a beautiful masterpiece! The dress fit like a glove and was able to dance all night without it feeling too snug or like it was gonna fall off. This is amazing because both the dresses I brought in were too small on me. Also- Everyone who works here is SO nice and helpful! Definitely recommend it to anyone just getting their dress altered or wanting to create their own thing!
"Suzanne and the team were amazing and I can’t recommend them enough! They made sure they understood what I was looking for with my dress and set realistic expectations of the timeline with me. They were in constant communication with me, updating me on the dress status and what to expect during each visit. They fit in extra visits to ensure the dress was not only what I wanted but made sure I could move comfortably in it. They also were able to squeeze in one of my bridesmaids and made sure she also felt comfortable and confident in her dress."
