Oh Hun I hope things pick up!!! 

What I can suggest is to speak to other alterationists. They stem to differ GREATLY so you may be able to get a mget tether price!

I would take it back to the salon you ordered it from and tell them that THEY insisted that you order the larger size, so THEY should alter it for either a substantially reduced charge or for free.

Look around for another seamstress. Go to other bridal shops or see if they have any they can recommend. Thats insane and I would refuse to pay that as well. Itll work out! Keep your head up!

I would speak to the manager and demand they fix it or order a one free, because they are the ones that insisted you order something too big.

Wow, that is completely ridiculous!  You should definitely look around for a different seamstress.  Makes me wonder if the bridal shop gets some sort of kick-back from that seamstress.

I’d do this as my first course of action. It doesn’t fit and your options are now limited or expensive…because of them. Perhaps you can return it and find something new.

Try not to worry…just starting looking to fix things asap.

Perhaps you could sell it to another budget bride and buy a dress online with a corset back
