    I bought my dress from DB and the alterations were going to be almost as much as my dress! I used a seamstress and paid less than $100 to remove the train, hem and change a ballet neckline to a sweetheart. I also wanted her to change it from a zipper back to corset and she talked me out of it. Wish I had done the corset back-my dress was too big around the hips by the time I got married. 

    There was another post about this-search and Im sure you’ll find more info from other bees.

    I didn’t buy my dress from DB but the consultant told me to leave up to $400-500 for alterations.  Other bridal stores told me that alterations would cost a maximum of $200 with their seamstress…so I think DB is on the high end.  If you can take it elsewhere, I would.

    I had my alterations done and bought my dress at davids.. I would suggest NOT doing alterations with them. They did an excellent job on my dress and it was beyond perfect but cost entirely too much. My dress was just over $600 and then alterations were $425 :/ I was worried something would go wrong (as my wedding planning was jinxed I swear haha) so I decided to go with them. definitely look around, i have many friends who spent just over $100 on theirs.

    DB was pricey but they did an excellent job on my gown and reception dresses. 

    If you can find a seamstress that you trust then you can probably get a better deal though.  I just didnt have one so I went with DB.

    I went to DB, and I met with another seamstress who was cheaper, but she ended up flaking out on me, so I went back to DB. It’s more expensive than a regular seamstress, but if they mess it up, they will fix it free.
