Bellissima Bride

Profile & Policy

In 1996 Bellissima Bride opened in Deerfield Beach. The salon has been very successful and true to the original concept of giving service, service and service. With many different designers and our offering of custom alterations, Bellissima Bride can truly offer a bride her dream gown.

In 2004 Bellissima Bride welcomed the arrival of West Coast Designer Tania MarcoVecchio. Tania has been in the industry over thirty years, having received her Degree in Design in 1971. She is a Master Pattern Maker, as well as Grader. Her presence on our staff has solidified Bellissima Bride’s reputation as one of the top Couture Houses on the East Coast as well as the most experienced group of professionals anywhere.

Since its inception The Knot has bestowed Tania and her staff with five consecutive “Best of Weddings” Awards as well as Wedding Wire’s numerous 5-star reviews that attest to Tania’s Best Bridal Tailor reputation not only in Florida but throughout the East coast. We are very proud of these awards as they were voted by not only Florida Brides but the many more from Canada to South America and the Caribbean.

Alterations: Wedding Dresses, Bridal Gowns

Altering your Wedding Dress is like retouching the Mona Lisa. Some need a little, some a little more. We treat it with honesty for the fit, integrity for the design and Award Winning Expertise- not only for our Bellissima Brides but other Gowns purchased elsewhere, if time allows.

We are proud and blessed to have not one but two Tailor and Couture Specialists in our staff. With more than 60 years experience between them, our Alterations Department consists of highly skilled professionals committed to make you look and feel beautiful: a Bellissima Bride.

Our services consist of three fitting appointments and a delivery day the week of the event or travel day. Normal Alterations start 6 weeks before and include taking your gown and fit it to your body: hem and bodice. Creating and crafting a Custom Bustle that is best fitted to the dress as well as your personality. Pressing and delivery in a special Bridal Bag, as well as storage of the gown is also included. For our Bellissima Brides, this service runs from an average of three hundred dollars to a high of four hundred and fifty dollars. (depends on the intricacy of the gown) For outside gowns bought elsewhere the cost will be somewhat higher, however a Consultation Appointment is complimentary.


  • -When you purchase a gown, it is SIZED to the larger measurement of the Designer’s size chart. Through alterations, it is FITTED to your measurements.
  • -It is a lot easier-and vastly less expensive- to take in than to add on.
  • -The cost of this service is NEVER included in the purchase price.
  • -Additional and extensive RE-DESIGN of your gown is not included in “normal” alterations. Custom re-designs will incur additional cost.
  • -Crinolines and undergarments are available, but not included.
  • -You are in no-way obligated to have your alterations done here: You may pay for the dress and take it to any one you wish. (Bag provided also)
  • -These dresses are complex. And they are getting more so. This is not a job for Aunt Mary or Bill, at the cleaners. Please use the services of a Professional Bridal Tailor, whoever you choose.
