Can anyone recommend a good place for wedding dress alterations? Or is there anywhere that I should avoid??

There's a place on London Bridge concourse past the buses & near where you turn for LB Approach walkway.
I get my trousers done there & there's often a lady in there getting a dress fixed.
Polish girls I think who've always done a bang up job in the past.
I don't know what it's called though.
They also take in dry cleaning & there may even have been a wedding dress on show(not sure about the last bit)

I would asked the price for the alterations first
before leaving as you could be in for a nasty shock when you go to pick it up

Hi, I always recommend this place at London Bridge - if you look at earlier posts. No connection other than they have done some amazing and tricky alterations for me over the years as well as the usual hems, zip replacements. In my opinion they charge a fair price for the work they do - and I know how tricky alterations are as I used to sew a lot before I lost patience in doing such fiddly stuff. They have a website that I've only just discovered - or phone them on 020 7 403 4488

Ask for the prices first and then no surprises.
Let us know how you get on.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I've seen mixed reviews for Nelly's but they seem to be the best option at the moment - I'll let you know how I get on...

Good idea because Nellys Designs charged me 50 to take up the hem and sleeves of a simple lightweight raincoat.
