Married Bees –
The bridal shop where I bought my dress has a standard alterations package price that includes anything and everything. The problem is that my dress needs very minor alterations – only to be taken in a small amount at the top and possibly insertion of cups to avoid wearing a bra. The dress is tea length so it doesn’t need to be hemmed or bustled. They’re willing to give me a small discount off the package – but I think the $250 alterations price is still high. I’ve had non-wedding dresses completely overhauled for $30 by other tailors.
Please, Hive — can you tell me based on your experience in the Philadelphia area – what I might expect to pay other places for gown alterations? If you have any recommendations for tailors either in Philadelphia or Montgomery County area, I welcome the suggestions!
