I think once you find a good seamstress, everything will be fine.  Most people fall under different sizing categories and alterations are not uncommon for wedding gowns.

Definitely shop around.  My salon said something similar about the hem on my dress.  I found a fabulous seamstress that owns her own business and it is cutting the cost in half.

$300 for just a hem and bustle? I have an all lace dress and I am getting it taken it substantially, hemmed up substantially and bustled for $280

We are dress twins. I am paying $300 to have my dress hemmed, bustled, taken in, and I am also having cups sewn in.

crap….I had no idea I should expect to pay that much for alterations…  My dress pretty much fits now, but I definitely will need a hem and some way to bustle.  The bottom is pretty simple, but I don’t have my first appointment until Set. 13.  Ugh…
