You should try to find an independent seamstress. Ask on your local board for a good seamstress so you don’t have to use their in-house people.

That sounds like a lot of money to me.

I am not a fan of David’s Bridal at all.  Their dresses are just knockoffs of real designer dresses and they charge outrageous prices for the “extras”.  Kudos to you bees who found your dream dress there, but I have never been really impressed with their quality.

I wore a Demetrios Gown (UltraSophisticates 1356) and it fit me like a glove. They measured the hollow-to-hem so it didn’t have to be hemmed and an local seamstress did a 3-point bustle for $25. Seriously. My mom gave her $50 anyway. lol

I too bought a Demetrios dress and yes they do have the dress built according to you. It’s saving me a fortune on alterations and I feel so much betting knowing that none of the design will be lost by nipping and tucking you know? I think that’s the major part. Good luck. I would suggest buying the demetrios.

I’d recommend having your alterations done elsewhere, no matter which dress you go with.  I had a terrible experience with the bridal shop that did mine, and I’ve known so many other people who did, if you can find a seamstress on your own, go that route!
