    Your gown has a scalloped lace edge, so the $150.00 that they charged you for the hem was reasonable in my opinion. That being said, it really depends on the seamstresses that the salon uses. The alteration charges could be more expensive or less expensive; depending on whether or not they do in house alterations or if they send the gowns out to be altered. If they do in house alterations, the charges are probably really close to what you would pay a private seamstress. If they have to send them out, the alterations could be more expensive because they may be including an upcharge with the quoted cost.

    I went to a reputable tailor in my area – I knew her prices were a lot lower than the bridal salon where I bought my dress and she has gotten great reviews from many people in my area

    I bought my dress in Northern California and I live in Southern California, so I went to a seamstress. She’s charging me $85 for hemming 4 layers of my dress. It’s a very simple edge though. But as @noritake22 said, yours is a scalloped edge, so it seems much more complicated.
