I would take it to the friend. OR just give her a call and see what she can do? She might say take it to a tailor. Cant hurt to try!

Find a local seamstress, don’t tell her so she does not feel pressure and if she asks, just tell her it was a last minute job and you needed someone closer to home so you could stop in after work. I know finding a local seamstress is easier said than done but ask around and you may come across someone quicker than you think. Maybe post in your local board too.

Find someone local and professional – it’s easier and nicer to your friend’s mom. Ask a bridal boutique for a recommendation, or look on yelp / google maps for reviews.

I would take it to a local, reputable professional.  4 weeks is plenty of time for them to fix it, though I’d probably tell them my wedding was in 3 weeks, just to be sure it was ready on time.  And I wouldn’t tell my friend that I’d chosen someone else.  Just in case she gets offended.

I would find a local seamstress and just not mention it to your friend’s mom. If somehow she finds out, just explain to her that you lost more weight (good for you by the way) and you needed someone to do the job quickly. You just didn’t want her to feel pressured.
