Alterations by Toni – Perfect for Weddings and Gift-Giving!

LOVING these monogrammed robes from Alterations by Toni

This week’s Black Friday officially kicks off gift-giving season, and the holidays get all the love birds fluttering about and getting engaged for wedding season in a few months! So, I thought I’d tell you my best kept secret for both… Alterations by Toni.

Alterations by Toni created this bride’s “something blue”!

First of all, they’re the best in town. They have 10 seamstresses on staff, with more than 40 years of experience, so if you need ANYTHING altered, they’re who I’d recommend, but especially for trusting someone with your wedding dress, Toni’s the one to call! From pant hems to bridal gowns, they do it all: menswear, ladies wear, bridesmaids, mothers of bride/groom.

I love being a fan on their facebook page because they post before and afters of their bridal gown transformations. Like, if a daughter wants to wear her mom’s gown, but re-fashioned to look more up-to-date.

They have a full line of bridal services in addition to alterations: veils, handmade garters, monogrammed hankies, ring bearer pillows, gifts for bridesmaids/groomsmen, storage until the wedding day, preservation after the wedding, etc

Toni is also the one to call if you need anything monogrammed which is great for personalizing clothing, accessories (like handbags, scarves, robes, etc), Christmas gifts, or even gifts for your bridal party! They can monogram just about anything of yours, or they have items in-stock you can monogram too (like bath wraps, robes, cosmetic cases, jewelry cases, totes galore, tea towels, dinner napkins, coasters, baby onesies, bibs, bloomers, receiving blankets, etc). They have more than 50 monogram styles in every color imaginable, so you can customize it just the way you want it.

Oh, and the best part is that they have super fast turnaround for last minute emergencies (like me… always waiting till the last minute to get a gift or alter that dress I need to wear in the wedding party! haha!)


Alterations by Toni

I went to a friend’s wedding over the weekend, and I asked the bride who made her dress (thinking it was a designer like Amy Kirchen or something because it looked custom to her body). She said she actually got it off the sale rack at a local bridal store but had Toni at Alterations by Toni do her alterations!

Toni is actually a client of mine at Cincy Chic, so I was happy to hear (and SEE) that she does such great work! I had actually done a video interview with her (get a sneak peek of it below) a couple weeks ago for a feature we’re doing on her in Cincy Chic next week. In the interview she had mentioned that bridal is a huge part of her business — now I know why! — but she also mentioned that monogramming is another popular service.

For some reason, I’ve been OBSESSED with monograms lately, so I’ll definitely be bringing Toni items to personalize for me.
