My dress woes are explained in this thread here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/the-dress-i-ordered-from-jcrew-does-not-fit-help
My question is, for those of you who didn’t get your alterations done in-store for whatever reason, how did you find a good seamstress? Will bridal shops give recommendations, or suggest their own in-store alterations department, even if I didn’t buy my dress from them?
Or even better, do any Vancouverite bees know a good seamstress who does evening/wedding dresses?

I posted a question under the local area of the bee and got a few responses. I checked them on weddingwire and decided who I was going with from there. Good luck!!

I went to the tailor that my family has been using for 20+ years. He even did all the alterations the week of the wedding since I was an Out of Town bride. Do you have a tailor that you take normal clothes to that you like? Ask if they do wedding dresses!

I looked at reviews on projectwedding.com and asked for suggestions on the local boards on WB.

A good place to look would be the local knot boards. if you go to boston.weddings.com and go to the bottom of the page, it will show you all the different boards they have by area. This is how I found a good independent tailor and basically any other vendor I need!
