I just picked up my wedding dress yesterday after three fittings at Alterations by Hranush in Watertown. My experience there was amazing! Hranush is very nice and very talented. I can’t reccomend going there enough. 

It was $510 but I have a very intricate dress and needed new straps, a new zipper, cups sewn in and a five point bustle put in.

I’ll also mention that she ran the prices by me at the very first fitting and it stayed that price until the last fitting.

Try Queen Dressmakers in Belmont.  She did basically the same alternations you listed (except taking it in one size) on my dress for $400.  Bring it in and see what she quotes you.  She does an amazing job!

my bridesmaid is getting Married the month after me and is brought her dress to Queens Dressmaker. I went with and felt she didn’t get the same service as I did during my alterations. also she quoted her the same price (after going on and on about how difficult it would be even though she just needed it taken in) as I paid and I got more done to my dress.

Broken down into all the things you need to have done, that price starts to sound pretty reasonable to me. But I’m certainly not an expert in alterations! I will say though, are you sure you only need a 1-point bustle? Those are infamous for breaking early on in the night. I think you’re much better off going with the three point, but that’s just based on all the stories I’ve read/heard about people’s bustles breaking and then they have to carry their dress, tie it in knots, change, etc.
