The place I bought my dress from quoted me around $400.  I went through an outside seamstress that a friend recommended and only had to pay $160.  What alterations need to be done?

I think it dpeends on where you go and also depends on how much you spent on your dress.  I spent close to 8k and would rather spend the extra amt to get the best alterations done.. but if I had bought like a cheap david’s bridal dress I prob wouldn’t care as much. That said my alterations were only 500 .. i got a french bustle , bra pads, and sweetheart neckline.. i thoguht that was a pretty good price!

@lazybee123:  I’m getting the sides taken in, a custom-made Bolero, and an under bustle for around $100. Maybe less than that.
