Take it somewhere else! do some research in your area or ask friends and family to see if they can suggest anyone. Alterations can get expensive but $599 sounds way high.

Maybe check the Ohio Boards, or Ohio weddingwire or something. Is there something special you’re having done to the dress? $599 for alterations is INSANE. You could also try looking at some of the dry cleaners in your area. A lot of time they’ll hire an in-house seamstress/tailor for these kinds of situations. Then it’s also convenient to have the dress pressed/cleaned all on site. I’m taking my dress to a local seamstress and she’s charging $130 for taking the dress in, hemming and bustling. Almost $600 really is crazy.

That’s more the Kleinfeld’s charges for alterations…in Manhattan.  I’d say that’s way overpriced and you should look around elsewhere!
