In partnership with Mary Ellen Metzger, owner and expert alterations specialist of Alterations & Sewing By M.E., we are so excited to offer alterations appointments at Gilded Social. Mary Ellen has over 30 years of alterations experience, so we know she’ll get your gown fitting exactly perfect.

Anyone is welcome to book alterations appointments with Mary Ellen

Regardless of if you are a Gilded Social customer! How it works:

  1. Request an alterations appointment via the form below. You can request an appointment ANY time, but we recommend doing so at least a few months in advance of when you’ll need to have your first fitting to ensure that space is available. Generally, you should expect to have your first fitting 2-3 months prior to the wedding for bridal gowns OR 4 weeks prior to the wedding/event for all other garments. First fittings are generally scheduled on Saturdays, but Thursday appointments may also be available. For example: For alterations to a June wedding bridal gown, book by January for a first fitting in April!
  2. Once we receive your appointment request, a Gilded Social representative will call you to finalize booking your first fitting on Mary Ellen’s calendar. We will help you determine an appropriate time based upon the wedding or event date.
  3. At your fitting, you will book subsequent fittings and your pick up directly with Mary Ellen. Additional fittings and pick ups are generally scheduled on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Please note: Mary Ellen operates her own business entity. All alterations services are quoted by, executed by, and paid directly to alterations & sewing by M.E. We are just thrilled to share space with her!
