I live in Atlanta, but I want to buy my dress in the NY/NJ area so that my mom and mil can be there when I make the purchase. I was going to have the dress shipped to me in ATL, but my Maid/Matron of Honor seems to think this is a bad idea. She says thta I should buy the dress here in Atlanta because I will have a difficult time getting someone to alter the dress if I can’t get the dress altered in the shop where I purchased the dress

There have to be independent seamstresses/dressmakers in Atlanta.
The shop here in Florida where I bought my dress doesn’t even have in-house alterations. They recommended a local dressmaker for me.

@strawbabies: That’s what I thought. My Maid/Matron of Honor insists that they wil not be as good as the ones that work for the stores and that it will be much more expensive to get my dress altered at an independent seamstress than it would be to get it altered at the store where I bought the dress
