Alterations

So I go for my first dress fitting tomorrow and I am very nervous about cost. I live in the north georgia area but I was wondering if you girls could share with me what you paid for your alterations.

I don't need a lot done to my dress I need it to be hemmed and for a bustle to be added, and I may need the sides to be brought in a tiny bit that all depends on if the lady recommends a little bit there or not...

Help calm my nerves please...

Thanks

Hi gympup


I live in Germany - so nevertheless I hope this helps - and I paid 410,00$ for the bustle made, to hemmed it a bit and the bodice were brought in a tiny. This was the absolut price ceiling in the bridal Salon. But my dress was very extravagante because of the many lace and fabric layers.

I paid 150 at Davids Bridal, so it really depends on where you go.

Yes it definitely depends on where you go! I would have been happy to look up reviews on yelp and go to a mom and pop shop, but since my mom was paying for my dress and alterations, she insisted on going to a bridal salon to have it done. I believe it was about $400. And that was only for hem, bustle, and bra cups. Ridiculous if you ask me, but hey.
