What should I expect at my appointment?
Be sure to wear a good strapless bra as well as your shaping undergarments. If you plan on wearing heels with your dress, throw a pair in so you can get the height you are looking for.
In order for your appointment to run smoothly we recommend only inviting people who understand your style and your budget. Avoid inviting people who upset you or push your buttons. Leave behind people who will take control of your gown appointment.
If someone else is helping pay for your wedding dress they may want to share in the experience. We ask you to remember we are a small boutique with multiple appointments so our viewing space can become tight.
Remember to share your pinterest page and ideas with us prior to your appointment so we can have some gowns to show you.
See you soon!

The Ultimate Fit
For a little Something extra please see the below appointments-These appointments can be customized to support each Lace Bride!
Lace Bridal Experience works with the best seamstresses in Mississippi to offer an incredible alterations process to our Brides. A Seamstress will meet you at Lace in one of our Dressing Room Suites for all of your fittings.You will have 3 to 4 fittings to ensure that your wedding dress looks perfect for your big day.
Since we alter only wedding gowns and formal wear, we are specialists. In other words, your local dry cleaner, friend or part time seamstress might not know the intricacies of formal wear. Wedding gowns have so many complex details. From boning to hems and bustles, it is best to use a professional who has seen and worked on such gown components in the past. All of our full-time alterations experts have over 15 years of formal wear experience. They are a joy to work with and a perfectionist in their work as well.
What to bring:
When you’re ready for alterations, bring your gown, shaping undergarments (slips, bustier, etc), shoes, and accessories. With all of the pieces in place, it will be easier to envision your overall wedding day look. You should have your shaping undergarments and shoes on hand in order to obtain the proper fit and length of your gown. Your hair accessories or veil will help ensure you have the right balance.
Many gowns need at least some sort of alteration, but keep in mind your alterations can vary greatly depending on how many changes need to be made. If your expectations are in order you should be ready for your wedding day with a gown that fits flawlessly. All alterations are contracted through the seamstress.
