I have my wedding dress already, will need to shorten it, too long and I need to know how much you girls pay for alterations and what was altered. I have tulle and it’s embroidered… and the bottom is going to have be cut through the embroidery design.
Something like this….

I’m getting my dress from DB and they have their own alterations dept. They quoted me the price for alterations before I said yes just to make sure I can afford all this. However, I believe they said it was going to cost $120 for the dress to be hemmed and between $45-$55 for the bustle. I’m thinking I don’t need the dress to be hemmed though. I tried it on without any shoes. I’m coming for my fitting Sat Aug 11th (with my shoes). I don’t need anything else done except that. The dress fits like it was made for me 🙂 My material is satin though so the embroidery may affect the price.

I had embroidery around the sides that had to be cut as well, but no tulle. I paid $130 to have it sized down from a 10 to 2, cups added, hemmed, and 13 pt bustle. Here’s what my seamstress was working on

It depends a lot on how many underlayers your dress has as to the price of the hemming. If there’s a lot of tulle layers underneath, they have to go in and shorten each layer individually, which takes forever and costs a lot more!
