Can anyone recommend a good place to go to have my dress altered in the Capital Region? I had an appointment at DB but want to cancel it. I’ve gotten a few recommendations and made another appointment at Lily in Saratoga. I am freaking out about this because I feel another bridal shop is going to charge me even more because I didn’t buy the dress there.

They may charge you more at private salons but at least you won’t be putting your dress in the hands of the hackjobs at our local DB (I’m from the Cap Region, too). My friend used their seamstress for her wedding dress and it was a total nightmare.
I personally recommend the seamstress at Danielles Bridal (also in Saratoga). She works for herself, not the salon, so I don’t think she’d charge anything additional for purchasing your dress elsewhere, though I could be wrong. I bought my dress there, so I can’t say for sure. She did a great job though and I thougth her prices were affordable.

UPDATE: I found a seamstress! She was recommended by a friend and when I called her, I just felt she is the right person for the job! So relieved to not have to worry about that any more! 🙂

Hi! I’m just wondering who you chose and how your dress came out. i think I’m going to need a fair amount of alterations and what to go to someone who will be comfortable doing more than just a hem or bustle.
