I am from California, bought my dress in Cali and am getting married in Cali. I live in Phoenix because my job relocated me.
I just picked up my dress from the bridal store in Santa Barbara and could not imagine getting alterations there because I can’t spare the time off to drive back out there2 or 3 more times.
Please, if anyone has recommendations for inexpensive and great tailors. I would appreciate it. I am so scared of picking a bad tailor and he/she ruins my dress 🙁

I am in the exact same situation (only relocated from NC and getting married there). I’m also in need of a seamstress/tailor and would love to hear if you’ve found anyone yet?

Here’s where I had my alterations done:
and here’s the yelp reviews:
She shortened the torso for me (at the shoulders) brought in the chest, gave it a slight sweetheart neckline, and changed the hem from a full-length to a high-low (tea length in front with a bit of a train in the back). She charged just under $300 for all of that, and it was done in 2 weeks. Amazing!

Janet Kirkman did my alterations and all of my BMs.
She did a lot of work on my skirt & train. Everything came out wondereful & she was reasonably priced.
Shes located in Scottsdale.
