I hope you are all enjoying your wedding planning.
I bought my dress from a sample sale in Atlanta and now I need some serious alterations. I’ve heard alot of horror stories about alterations and wedding dresses being destroyed. So I hate to take my dress to just anyone that I look up online.
Does anyone have any personal experience with a tailor that did a really good job with their dress?
I live in Kingsport but I am happy to travel to Knoxville or anywhere with in a few hours for a reputable tailor.
Your help is greatly appreciated!

It is beyond out of the way, but I grew up in SWVA and I always had my tailoring done by Litton’s in Big Stone Gap, VA. Not sure if they’re really the best for that sort of thing. I’ll ask my mom, who got married in Bristol; she may have suggestions.

There is a place in Knoxville called Sandra G’s. She does amazing work (my best friend had her wedding dress, going away dress, and her mother’s dress altered there). She is pricey, so make sure you get an estimate so you aren’t surprised.
If you are familiar with Knoxville her shop is located off of I-40 near the Papermill Drive Exit. The address is 6711 Kingston Pike #2Knoxville, TN 37919 and the phone number is (865) 588-6018.

Amberfi, thanks for that and please do let me know if your mom knows anyone in Bristol.
Also, thank you Smanley. I will definitely check out Sandra G!
Thank you both for your suggestions! I really don’t know what I would do without this site and all the helpful bees!
