OK that doesn't sound too bad. For sure a do-able price!

That's not horrible either. OK, I'm starting to breathe easier!

Ok here's my take- I think DB offers cheaper dresses and then in turn jacks up the alterations cost because they know most brides need them. I really liked a dress there until I was quoted $350 to alter it because of the "lace".

 

I ended up buying a more expensive lace dress but I got it hemmed, bustled, hips and sides taken in (I lost some weight) for $150. In the end, I saved money by actually buying a more expensive dress.

I got my dress at David's and then got it hemmed about 4 inches with lace and it was 90 bucks. I don't think it was that bad. Plus it had bit of a train too. It turned out perfect!!!!!
