I was quoted $481 for my dress alterations. That includes the hem, adding bra cups, the bustle (6-8 points), and fixing a hole in the arm pit (it's at the seam, so it's an easier fix. Also two tiny holes in the sleeves. Its mesh so its very delicate). That's almost 1/3 of what my dress costs (it was somewhere around $1,800). Those of you who have had alterations done, does that sound fair?
For good alterations work, it will definitely cost some money. Seems reasonable given price of the dress as well. Go for it - my friend had some lady do hers on the cheap and she was so unhappy with it, it was really disappointing and it distracted her from the day.
I paid $400 for alterations on my $500 dress. Hemmed front and back, added cups, adjusted the neckline (brought the "modesty panel" lower)
I am also adding cups, the bust area needs to be taken in, bustle and a hem. I'm paying $250 for mine. I only have 2 layers in my skirt tho, so the hem and bustle will be pretty simple. You're dress is absolutely beautiful.
My dress cost me 2,160 and just so far had my first fitting just the hem and bustle for my dress is 275 ! Thats not including she has to take in my dress bc ive lost 32 lbs so far and still losing she also has to take in my cup size and around armpit area so yea i hear you there my dress alterations will prob be around what your spending and it sucks but to look beautiful and your best i guess thats about what fitting the dress costs just cant beleive its so much either
