I ordered buttons when I ordered my dress so I could spruce up a semi-boring back, and I believe the number of buttons I needed (it will depend on the length of your zipper) cost about $175…but it’s been awhile so I’m not positive on the price.

As for time, I would assume it wouldn’t take much time at all to sew them all – it’s just a matter of how long it would take for them to come in. I would give your bridal salon a call asap.

Thinking about it, because the bustle buttons on my dress are beautifully beaded and I’d love that all the way up the back 🙂

I did!  The buttons themselves cost $30 (I’m sure you could find them cheaper if you knew where to look – I didn’t so the bridal shop just ordered them from the manufacturer of my dress for me).  My seamstress charged $1/button to sew them on and to add the loops (so I think that was another $30 maybe).  She had my dress for about a month, but she was doing lots of other alterations too.
