Wow!  Congrats!  That’s really good 🙂  My alterations on the dress are around $150, with the bustle being an additional $80…. and I thought that wasn’t TOO bad!  🙂  You found a great deal there!

Yeah that is what I love about the local seamstress! I went to a local one here who was recommended to me by a co-worker, and she only charged me $40 for a three-layered hem (including a chiffon layer she did by hand), taking the bodice in on both sides by about an inch, and completely making my veil over. I wore my mother’s veil, but wanted it to hang in back only, so she removed the head piece and blusher, and even sewed the lace on (originally it had only been glued)! Amazing!

Don’t you love a good deal! Congrats!

good for you. this is another great reason why we should remember we don’t always have to follow the bridal salon’s loco rules about how/when to order or have alterations done. seamstresses in the real world don’t charge 9-zillion dollars. bridal markup.

Wow, that’s awesome!!! My alterations ended up being $325. That part really sucked. 

But I bought a sample dress and it was about four sizes too big, plus she had to remove the lace on the seams to take it in (twice, so far) and I had her sew in bra cups and a mermaid crinoline. So it was pretty much a re-working of the dress. 

Still…. I was a little shocked by the cost of alterations.
