    Girl, I feel you. I just spent 340 dollars on alterations. Although my dress was only 500.... but still! She is putting a lot of work into it. But girl alterations are ridiculous!!!

    I feel your pain! I'm shelling out $150 just to get a few inches hemmed from the bottom!

    Mine were $600. I feel you AND I bought a second dress because I just felt the first wasn't "the one" so I have one dress I still have to try and sell. It's expensive to get married!

    Wow I had no idea it was so expensive for alterations 馃槮 my mom is doing the alterations on my dress she is a seamstress/tailor. She was working on a clients dress and boy does she have a lot of work ahead of her. I didn鈥檛 even think to ask her how much her boss charges for that job.

    Yes alterations are expensive! It鈥檚 usually because alterations are a certain price per layer and wedding dresses have a ton of layers.

    Mine weren鈥檛 too bad. I had a corset back put in and a bustle added for around $200. It was way cheaper than I thought it would be!

    Oh my goodness. Save your self some money and ask people in your family to help with alterations especially if they use a sewing machine

    I bought my dress from them and had my alterations done there. They did a hem on a multi layer tulle dress (I needed almost 4 inches taken off), shortened both straps (innner and outer) and took in the sides/ added bra cups and a 9 point bustle for about $400. It was a lot but my dress is really complex with layers of tulle and lace so it鈥檚 worth it. And they were done beautifully and in a timely manner.

    So being that you bought your dress there they don't offer the alterations for free??? Men's Wearhouse gives free alterations for people who purchase suits with them.
