Did you pay her the $30? I wouldn’t have. She should’ve told you that before you even stepped foot into her shop! Does she have it posted anywhere in her shop?

Wow…I hadn’t heard about a fitting fee either! Seems to me it’s something she should have mentioned over the phone! Makes me want to be more careful when I look for someone!

Honestly? I would see if you can get a seemstress who doesn’t work at a Bridal store. A lot of the time they will charge a lot less. ; )

She can’t legally charge you for something that wasn’t disclosed prior to getting a quote. If there is a sign in her shop that states a fee, that would count as disclosure, even if she didn’t come right out and tell you like she should have. Since she charges so much for her alterations, adds things that shouldn’t be added, and doesn’t get the brides opinion on the alterations, charging/extorting that fee is probably the only way she makes her money.
