get quotes from davids and then private seamstresses in your area.  that will be a simple dress and i would take it to a seamstress not the bridal store.  they’re usually expensive….

I don’t think that your alterations will cost much since your dress has very little beading and you don’t have to hem up a train like most of us did!

I would guess that your alterations would be somewhat cheaper than other quotes you’ve read for the reasons that MissAsB mentioned.  However, if I were you, I’d get some quotes from David’s and maybe another seamstress if you don’t like their price.

ETA: I love this dress!  Really chic!

I would also recommend contacting some private seamstresses for prices.  I think they would likely be cheaper and might to a better job than David’s Bridal.  I have heard a lot of complaints about the alterations department of David’s Bridal.

It does not sound normal to me to pay the entire fee in advance.  I thought most places took a deposit or nothing at all, and you paid once the alterations were complete…but I may be wrong.  I’d be interested in hearing some other experiences on this.
