alterations & Dry Cleaning

Fairytale Occasions also offers an alteration and repair service, dress steaming and a dry cleaning service. Detailed below is a rough price guide for alterations which are all undertaken in house, but these may vary according to the work involved.




If you are looking to get a garment altered whether a wedding dress or a pair of trousers then we can help.
We offer a full alteration service and pricing is detailed below. There is nothing we have been unable to accomplish yet, and will do our best to achieve the desired look you require.

If you need a consultation to discuss your requirements prior to any alterations then we charge £15 for an appointment to cover our time and valuable advice. This however is refundable against your alterations on a later date. The appointment fee is non refundable if the appointment is cancelled less than 48 hours prior to the appointment or no further appointment is required.

We can also steam your dress for the big day or even your bridesmaids should you just wish to get the creases out.

A full dry cleaning service is now available from wedding dresses to suits. Gowns can also be stored in a white box in tissue paper for an extra charge if you prefer this option (boxes available in three sizes). Please note wedding dress cleaning takes a minimum of two weeks to complete.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any other dressmaking or cleaning requirements that are not listed as we can discuss this with you and provide a solution. Steaming and dry cleaning pricing on request.
