Include pics if you want. What alterations are you getting done and how much is it costing you? I have T9612 – I am not going to DB for alterations, they wanted over $500 for what I wanted. I went to an independent seamstress and they are charging me $320 for the same things.
Following alterations are being done to my dress:
Shoulders & waist taken it, lingerie straps added to shoulders as well as lower back, hemmed and the train is being cut in half and a bustle.

If I had chosen the dress I liked at DB they were going to charge me close to $500 to change the zip up back to a corset, hem and bustle. Ultimatley I chose a different dress at a different store and they have quoated thier alteations about $100 for roughly the same service (it already has a corset but will need to be altered still)!
DB’s alterations are an over-pricedjoke, I would never use them.

I had a David’s Bridal dress, and the alterations quote they gave me was ridiculous. I went with a private individual for alterations, and I was able to get the sides taken in, a four-point bustle, cups added, a sweetheart neckline added, and a couple of tacks placed in the pickups of the dress all for $120!
Make sure you shop around! It pays off!

I got my dress at DB and only need it to be hemmed. My consultant whispered to me that I would be better off getting it done elsewhere because of the price, but asked the alteration lady to give me an estimate anyway. They quoted me $120 just to hem my dress. I’m going to an independent seamstress next week to get another estimate.
