Okay, so I haven’t actually gotten my alterations done yet (I’ll be waiting until March or April for that) but I wanted to share my excitement about the consulation I had the other day!! The lady who’s doing the alterations is actually a family friend and was recommended to us by another family friend. She even came to my house to look at the dress. After seeing what she would have to do to it (hem, bustle, and taking it in at the bust and waist/hips area), she said since she charges about $15/hr, she would charge $65-70 to alter my dress! I was shocked at the price and I know she’ll do a great job. This definitely helps our budget because I was not looking forward to forking out several hundred bucks for alterations. If anyone in the capital district NY area needs alterations let me know and I’ll give you her contact info!
