HELP! After two dresses and drama over what to do, me and my Maid/Matron of Honor found a way to “arrange” one of the gowns to my liking. But the possible cost of alterations is a scary thought. Any suggestions? I would need the dress shortened, taken in (maybe add a lace up) and remove the halter straps to make it strapless.
Is it even worth it? 🙁

Could be, depending on what you paid plus what alterations would cost. The best thing is to just call around and get an estimate. I was going to get my dress altered in calgary, but I moved. I was looking at two ladies in the south. They both had really good reviews. Hannahs designs and alterations and Mariannas Alterations.

I had quite a few alterations to do myself and I used a lady that was fantastic! She did EXACTLY what I needed and wanted and it was perfect. She worked with me so that I could either go to her house or to where she worked. I didn’t do any checking on prices but she was recommended to me and I am so glad I went to her. I am not sure of the protocol on here so PM me and I will give you her name and number if you want!
