    I’m paying $250 at Davids Bridal for hem, bustle, and one inch take-in

    Mine were $135 for the hem, the bustle, and taking in the bust area.

    Mine were about $300 for hemming, adding cups, taking in the bodice (lots of ruching and some beading),adding straps, and adding a bustle. I think your price sounds a bit high (at least in my area) for the amount of work you are having done.

    I know I’m being severly overcharged, but my MIL is paying (thank GOD) – it’s $400

    My dress had to be taken in an inch and a half and then bustled. It cost $56. This also included messing with some beading since it had to be taken in.
