I’m wondering how much to expect for alterations… I was told to expect about $400 from the recommended place from where I bought my dress, but they’re kind of far away in Newton, and I live in the city of Boston, so I’m guessing it’ll be more… Has anyone else had their dress altered in a city, and if so, how much did it cost??

The place I bought my dress from quoted me around $400. I went through an outside seamstress that a friend recommended and only had to pay $160. What alterations need to be done?

I think it dpeends on where you go and also depends on how much you spent on your dress. I spent close to 8k and would rather spend the extra amt to get the best alterations done.. but if I had bought like a cheap david’s bridal dress I prob wouldn’t care as much. That said my alterations were only 500 .. i got a french bustle , bra pads, and sweetheart neckline.. i thoguht that was a pretty good price!

@lazybee123: I’m getting the sides taken in, a custom-made Bolero, and an under bustle for around $100. Maybe less than that.

I paid less than $1000 (VOWs sample dress) but to buy it new would be a lot more, so I’d like it to be done well… It’s about 4 sizes too big, I need crenoline (spelling?) or a hoop skirt to poof it out, and a bustle…
