Covid-19 in 2022
If your initial fitting was pre-covid: Your gowns are ready for the next step at this time (fitting or pick up, whichever is applicable). If you do not have one, please schedule an appointment online or contact us by phone or email as soon as possible.
Although in accordance with the Mayors' newest order, as of March 1, 2022, businesses are not required to have their clients and employees wear a mask, we ask all our clients and visitors to wear a surgical face mask during the fitting, while the seamstress is present. Thank you for your understanding.
When do I need to bring my gown for alterations?
Green and Blue Studio (GBS) needs at least two (2) months before you need your gown finished (not your wedding date) for a regular alteration, although three (3) months at least is preferred. If your gown has to be finished in less than two months, a 30% rush fee might be applied. For a rush alteration in less than two weeks, GBS will add a 50% rush fee.
What do I need to bring with me to a fitting appointment?
It is important to bring the actual shoes, that you will be wearing with your gown, to all your appointments. If you are certain of the heel height and have other shoes that are the same, it is fine to use them for the fitting instead.
If you have selected your undergarments already, bring them as well. If not, we can advise you on the best option for you. We have a selection of shape wear and undergarments for sale in our studio.
Can I bring someone with me to my appointment?
Due to the limited size of our studio, we recommend bringing one extra person only (in non pandemic time). The alteration process is often complicated, requiring concentration, and we want to be able to give full attention to you and your gown.
How does the alteration process work?
The initial consultation/fitting is generally at least two months before you need your finished and takes on average 30 minutes. At this appointment, all the necessary adjustments are decided and pinned. At this point the deposit (first half) is due. The second fitting/pick-up is about 2-3 weeks before the wedding. If the gown fits at this appointment, you will take it with you, and the remainder of the balance is due. Sometimes, small adjustments may be still needed during this appointment. Depending on the extent of the alteration, we will correct them while you wait, or within a couple of days.
