@renwoman:  I paid for my girl’s alterations. Two had just the hem which was $40. The other one had the hem and the straps and it was $90. With that dress, it depends on how it fits, but I can imagine having to take it in on the side ($80) and possibly the hem. How did the sample fit?

@renwoman:  That’s great– normally dresses are a little tighter than the sample. As long as it isn’t totally off, alterations may not be necessary. I know that I could use alterations to improve the dress I am wearing for my friend’s wedding, but it fits fine without it and I am opting not to. If you aren’t super picky about the hem, she may luck out and not need them. 

In the wedding I am in, only 1 girl out of the 6 needs alterations and our dress is a similar style. A few of use could use minor alterations (hems), but it isn’t worth the cost for a shorter dress. Some will have dresses a little longer than the others.
