Debbie at Myer Bridal South San Francisco. She is very good and very inexpensive. My bustle was super cheap!  I went to San Carlos and they tried to charge me $300 for a bustle and a half inch "tuck" on my straps.

Lynne Gallagher at Wee Scotty. I’d only recommend her if your alterations are really complicated as she charges hourly and she doesn’t have the best going rate around. She’s really good and a lot of people recommend her, including many bridal salons and bridesmaid places.

Ooh, I want to know this as well!  I need cups put in, bustle and maybe a strap tuck.  I don’t want to pay $300.

My lady is all over Yelp.  Her name is Lucy and she’s an older Filipino lady who’s been doing alterations as well as making gowns for brides for over 25 years.  She’s super friendly and cheap!  I went to her to alter my bridesmaids dress (for a wedding i was in a couple of months ago) and she let the dress out and hemmed it for $40.

She’s altering my wedding gown – i had a traditional bustle (4 points), hem, let out, velcro on my bra to the dress, "garter belt" on the inside of the dress (to ensure a secure fit around my rib cage b/c my dress is strapless) – all for $220.

PM me for her info!  Seriously, Lucy is great, but books up really really quick!

Julie Ireland, also a Yelp favorite, has been altering my dress.  She is fantastic, albeit a bit more than $300. I’m paying $400 for shortening the torso, hemming, bustle, and tulle cap sleeves.  She is very warm and fantastic to work with.
