I did it on a prom dress once. Because the dress was a bit long, they took the extra fabric from the interior of the dress to make the corset. It cost me less than $50 but I got it done in the store where I purchased the dress and I was living in a very affordable city.

Yes, it can be switched to a corset.  It all depends on your area.  It can be anywhere from $50 to $100. 

I suggest you try to find some independent seamstresses as well as your bridal store to get quotes.  Check out projectwedding boards for suggestions.

It can be changed. The price at DB is $150 in my area. Thats how much another salon wanted as well. I think it just depends on where you live.

My dress is from AA and I switched my corset back to a zipper back. They ended up covering the fees because of a mistake on their part but it was going to cost $130

I’m getting my zipper back altered to a corset for about $130.
