UPDATE that changed my recommendation. Toni cares about keeping clients happy.:
I was contacted by Kathy who works for Toni. She assured me that they wanted to resolve the issue and attempt a fix. So today I went back and Toni herself helped me and she was able to do as best a fix a possible. They also refunded my money as a courtesy. I am happy with the outcome. They truly redeemed themselves and kept a customer. Thank you Toni!
Original Post:
I am beyond upset! I took the dress that I'm wearing in my niece's wedding to Alterations by Toni and not only is it crooked, I asked them to "hem" it and all they did was cut it!! They charged me $62 to just cut it! It has a raw hem but I wanted it hemmed. No one called me or asked me. Who does business like this!!! And because they cut it now it can't be hemmed. I don't even know if it's fixable. Just heartbroken. Don't ever take your stuff there. They didn't treat me very well there either. Bad bad bad.

This place is amazing. I was scheduled to have my second fitting for my wedding dress alterations on 7/14. Called Toni around July 3 as I was hoping to push up my wedding date because of my dad’s negative turn in his cancer battle. She had my dress done on 7/7. It meant the absolute world to me that Toni made this possible and my dad was able to see me in my dress. Toni and the rest of the staff have been so respectful and considerate of my wants throughout all the appointments! Highly recommend this place

Very fast turn around and everyone was very nice and friendly. Only needed to have the bottom hemmed of my bridesmaid dress. Another one of the bridesmaid also dropped here's off at the same time and needed a bit more work down, but our dresses ended up being finished around the same and look amazing.

Toni did an AMAZING job altering my lace wedding dress! She made the dress fit me like a glove. She was also so easy to work with- I was planning my wedding from afar and even had to come in for a final fitting the morning after thanksgiving and she worked my schedule.

What a wonderful experience! Toni did a fantastic job and she was very sweet. My only advice to any bride is to make sure someone knows how to properly bustle your train. My MOH was at the alteration appointment once to do it but by the time the reception came around, she couldn't get it right and I had at least 3 girls behind me trying to figure it out. My dress was bustled somehow, but definitely not the right way through no fault of Toni! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!

She gave great suggestions for the bustle, and the work was done perfectly! She was also great with her recommendations of how to travel and store my dress, as well as pressing prior to the wedding. Prices are very reasonable, especially for the quality of work! Thank you, Toni!

Toni is so great to work with. She has a down-to-earth personality and was one of my favorite parts of the alteration process. It took 3-4 alterations to complete my dress and I was absolutely pleased with her & her team's work. My dress was beautiful because of Toni's attention to detail.Their prices are a bit steep but I can promise that they are worth it for tricky alterations; especially on wedding dresses. 10/10 recommend

Toni is amazingly talented! My wedding dress was way too large; she took in several inches in on both sides of my waist and made it fit flawlessly. She's also super easy to work with. If you don't like something she goes above and beyond to make sure you're happy. You're wasting your time considering anyone else for alterations!

I'm short and was worried that the shape of my dress would be compromised after it was shortened but it wasn't at all. I'm so happy with how my dress turned out and would highly recommend her to any one looking for high quality alterations

I got a bridesmaid dress hemmed here and they did a beautiful job. It was so easy to just drop it off and I didn’t need to make an appointment. It took about two and a half weeks so plan accordingly. It is such a cute shop with so many amazing women working to make your clothing perfect whether it’s a dress, jacket, wedding dress, or anything in between!

Tony is truly fantastic at what she does. I came to her just two months ago in a panic for my dress to be altered and she was able to take out my zipper and put in a lace up and a bustle very quickly. She is also very willing to come in early and work with your schedule which was wonderful. My dress now fits me perfects and I can marry the love of my life in the perfect dress. I would absolutely recommend her if you are needing bridal alterations!

I am so blessed Toni helped make me wedding day so special with such a special dress and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to job done correctly and beautifully.

I appreciate you being so flexible with my schedule, laughing along with my silly personality and being free spirited. My dress fit perfect in every way, and my mom and mother in-law took at least 10 minutes to bustle my dress LOL. I loved my robe, as well as everyone else I ordered one for.

Toni was so patient and wonderful to work with! I was nervous about the fit of my dress because after the first try on after getting it from the dress shop it was very low cut, but Toni suggested things to make me feel comfortable and make sure the dress still looked elegant. She was very kind to show my mom and bridesmaid how to bustle the dress and was very easy to work with! She also steamed my dress and veil so all looked good day of! After my first meeting with her, I especially knew I didn't need to stress about anything and she would do great things! On the day of my wedding, I felt so beautiful and confident in my dress! Thanks Toni for everything, you are a master at all that you do!

My wedding dress alterations went better than I could have ever imagined. I was nervous finding the right place because of all the horror stories I’ve heard. Toni is so delightful, sweet, and she really knows her stuff. She would place pins in the dress while I had it on so she knew where it needed to be sewn to. She always made sure I was happy with what it looked like and how it fit before she would sew that change. If something didn’t look right she would let me know and show me ways of how to fix it. After the 2nd fitting she told me to bring someone with me the next time to show them how to do the bustle. She let me mom video tape her doing it so she could bustle my train the night of the wedding. She made sure my dress was pressed when I picked it up the final time and even offered to press my veil. After trying it on the final time she looked at the hook and eye and said she wanted to change it out to something stronger. It didn’t break, but since I had a strapless dress and it was heavy she wanted to make sure there was no chance of it breaking that whole day. She even had me bring a bed sheet to wrap it around the dress when I left to keep it clean but so it wouldn’t get wrinkled. She thought of everything and there isn’t anything I would have changed about my dress. I was so happy with it all! Her prices are very reasonable which was nice being on a strict budget.

Toni is such a doll! She helped make my wedding dress perfect in less than a week! I had a situation because I'm in the military stationed overseas. When I bought my dress, I had it sent home in the states because I was in a place where I wouldn't trust them to do it how I wanted due to the language barrier. I started contacting a few seamstresses back home, explaining to them that I'd need it done very fast due to the earliest date I could get home (which wasn't certain at the time cause that's military). You could understand my disappointment when I kept getting denied. But when I asked Toni, she was down for the challenge!! She said to let her know the date I'd fly in as soon as I know and she'd book me an appointment. She was so amazing! I needed my dress taken out a little (I had a hint back fat going on) and hemmed. So she took it out, hemmed it, and gave me a bustle in less than a week! Long story short, customer service was awesome, and product was amazing as well! I definitely recommend! 🙂

Toni is so patient and wonderful to work with! An example of her patience is that I had an alteration appointment on a Saturday, woke up on Sunday feeling very anxious about the alterations, she emailed me back on a Sunday (her day off), and let me come back in Monday morning without an appointment to re-try on my dress before she made the final alterations so that I wouldn't be so anxious. The day of my wedding, I felt so beautiful and confident in my dress! She made sure it fit my body and was still comfortable. Thanks Toni for everything!

Toni is wonderful! She met with me three times to discuss and alter my dress to ensure it fit beautifully for my wedding. I bought the dress off the rack, so Toni's team worked hard to ensure it could be tailored to fit my figure. The hem was raised, the shoulders shortened, and bra cups installed. She also had it professional cleaned, along with steaming my veil. The experience was easy, smooth and highly professional. I'd recommend them to any bride. Even after my wedding, she wanted to see pictures to make sure that the dress met my expectations.

Toni was an absolute joy to work with. She knew exactly how many appointments I would need to complete my alterations before even seeing the dress. Toni eased all my worries, and altered my wedding gown to perfection! Not only was my dress altered to fit like a glove, but she steamed my dress and veil (even though nothing needed to be done to my veil) and held onto everything until we were able to pick it up the week of the wedding. Any questions or concerns I had were quickly answered and eased, and she was incredibly friendly!

Toni - it was truly a pleasure to have you alter my gown, you made my experience as a bride so enjoyable knowing everything in your hands was taken care of. Thank you again!

I found Toni by searching for the highest rated bridal gown alteration seamstress in Cincinnati and she definitely lived up to that reputation! Given my short 5'2' stature, my dress needed shortened quite a bit as well as taken in too in a few places. Toni was able to create a perfect fit for me in every way and also added a beautiful bustle that was easy to manage. My dress looked absolutely gorgeous for my destination Halloween New Orleans wedding and I received literally hundreds of compliments on my dress all night as my husband and I had a traditional second line brass band parade through the French Quarter! She was very polite, professional, easy to work with, and made me feel very comfortable and confident in her work. Thank you Toni so so much for helping to make my wedding day dreams come true!

I was nervous (like I think any bride is) taking my dress to alterations, you never know what could happen! My dress was all mesh with lace on top, Toni altered it with ease! You couldn't even tell the shoulders were snipped and tightened! She helped fix the under layer of my dress so it wouldn't show at the bottom with alterations. She helped me get in and out of my shoes and made me feel so confident leaving my dress in her hands. She had my sister in to teach her how to bustle my dress, showing her and then having her do it a few times on her own. She steamed my dress and my veil and showed me how to keep them perfect for my wedding day! She's so talented, understanding and kind. Thank you again, Toni!

First off, Toni works wonders on gowns! My dress was covered in intricate beading at the top and I had a hard time filling it out at the top as well. She made it look seamless and my gown fit me perfectly! She altered it to perfection and in such a timely manner! Toni made me feel so comfortable and helped me feel like a thousand bucks in the finished product. She also added my grandma’s gown and my mother’s hat to the inside of the gown for that special touch. Toni even helped me with making it so easy to preserve my gown. I would recommend anyone to Toni for their alteration needs!!!!!

I honestly cannot speak more highly of Toni. I live in Columbus but am from Cincinnati and she made it easy to find appointments around my non-traditional work schedule and needing to travel there. She listened to what I wanted as far as alterations and was upfront about pricing. My mother did have a bit of an issue when one of her employees was less than pleasant concerning rescheduling my last appointment after my grandmother died. However, Toni was more than sweet and went above and beyond by coming in before normal operating hours so that I could have my last try-on/pick-up my dress prior to traveling to Virginia for the funeral. It was a very stressful time for my mother and me with a funeral one Saturday and a wedding the next but Toni made it much easier and we are so grateful! Ps-the dress fit perfectly! �

My wedding dress, of course, instantly became one of my most prized possessions so I was extremely anxious about taking it to a stranger to cut up and sew back together, but Toni made me feel so at ease with her professionalism and confidence in what needed to be done to my dress. It was very obvious she was extremely talented and knew what she was doing. I was so happy with how everything turned out! I would definitely recommend her to brides everywhere. My custom Hayley Paige dress that intimidated other seamstresses turned out perfect when Toni was finished with it!

Toni and her team are the absolute best!! Toni worked her magic with my wedding dress, and it fit so beautifully after she altered it. Toni's team also did multiple of my bridesmaid dresses, and they all looked amazing.

Toni is amazing! She is great to work with and did a WONDERFUL job with my dress! She even took the time to teach a family member of mine how to properly lace up my corset and bustle the dress. I highly recommend her services!

Toni was wonderful! My dress fit PERFECTLY the day of my wedding which was good because it was form fitting in the mid section. I was nervous to have it altered because there was a lot of bling and lace but she made it look flawless! I would highly recommend her! �

Toni was absolutely amazing! Even though she didn't end up altering my dress she was great. There was a complication through the store where I bought my wedding dress and I had to take my dress to their seamstress. But, Toni was very understanding and gave me a full refund of my deposit. I will definitely go to her again in the future for other alterations!

I received a recommendation from Hyde Park Bridal (where I purchased my wedding dress) for Alterations by Toni. I was so impressed. Toni charged a flat fee based on the alterations I needed and had as many alterations appointments as I needed for no extra charge. She was kind and did a perfect job on my fitted lacy wedding dress. It fit perfectly on the wedding day. It is on the expensive side but worth it! You will know you are in good hands with your special wedding dress when you go to Toni.

I had a pageant gown and cocktail I needed altered quickly. Toni did a fantastic job! The gowns were very detailed with beadwork and she was able to alter them perfectly. I will not take my formals to anyone else!

Being in the industry, I have always had high expectations. I have always heard from all of my Brides that "Toni is awesome. She is a sweetheart. The alterations were amazing.. and on and on". and I knew all of that, but what I didn't know is how flexible and talented she is. I went in with my dress. Now I loved the dress I have but I wanted a few changes. Never did Toni say no, Never did she complain. Never did she make me feel like it was asking to much. She was like we will give it a shot. And she did - and It turned out AMAZING. Tonight I got to go in for my final dress fitting with my family and I must say she made me feel so comfortable, amazing, and beautiful in my dress. I literally can't wait to wear it! Thanks Toni! You are everything every bride has said and so much more!

Toni did a wonderful job on my wedding dress! We incorporated a sweetheart neckline, which turned our great. My dress had a lot of intricate lace so it was very amazing to see the whole process. I also had a bridesmaids dress altered there. Great job, great service. They also do monogramming and other cute stuff so if you are looking for gifts for bridesmaids and flower girls, they have a nice little selection!

Toni takes pride in the work she does, therefore, she makes sure every wedding dress is perfect! She made sure my dress not only fit perfectly but would feel completely comfortable on me during my entire wedding day. She did a great job on my dress! I knew it was in good hands with her.

I did not think anyone would be able to fix the netting on my dress that had started to run but I had heard good things about Toni's so I thought I would give it a try. I was absolutely amazed when I picked up the dress and could not even see where the repair was. I showed my son and daughter in law who had seen it and they could not remember where it was. Toni you are absolutely amazing. Thank you so much and I will recommend you to anyone needing work done/

Toni is not satisfied unless your wedding dress is perfection and you feel beautiful in it! My dress had scalloped lace all across the bottom - I asked several seamstresses before hearing of Toni, who told me they could not make it shorter due to the complicated lace. Toni said "I like a challenge." She's fantastic and so easy to work with. I won't go anywhere else for alterations in the future!
