- Wedding: April 2012
I am new to the site and looking for some info on dress tailors in NJ. I am getting married on April 7th so it’s pretty urgent that I find someone soon! I am having a destination wedding and my dress is fairly simple. It fits me almost perfectly. All I need alterations wise is about a ½ inch take up from the bottom and I need it taken in slightly in the bust area. Nothing major at all. I made and appointment and got a quote from a tailor near my house in Hoboken. I was quoted $300. I thought this seemed like a lot considering the small amount of work going into it, but then again I don’t know much about this so maybe I am wrong. I just thought it was a little crazy to spend $300 tailoring an $800 dress. Does this seem like a lot of $$? Also, does any have any good recommendations for tailors in the Hudson County or Union County area? Below is a pic of the dress!
