I don’t live in Central NJ (although I did grow up there!), but I was able to find the name of respected seamstresses in my area by seaching local boards on The Knot. Another way would be to look at the reviews on this site or on weddingwire. Generally an independent seamstress will be a better value than the store where you bought the dress. Good luck!

You can call some local bridal stores/salons in your area and ask who they recommend??

My mother called a tux/formalwear rental shop in the area, and they recommended one of their seamstresses who does dress alterations on the side from her home. She charged $45 to shorten it and put in a bustle—David’s initial quote was in excess of $200.
