      You can also call around to other Salons.. I found one salon to be very high compared to another in a different (but still local) city.

      Also, I was warned about the "free alterations" make sure their policy is in writing and google your salon to make sure girls haven't had problems.

            I would go with the dress shop, alterations can be very expensive. I would mention the price on ebay and im sure they would offer some type of discount. I like dealing directly with bridal salons, their often helpful and invested in your alterations since you purchased from them.

              Ok I don't think alterations would be too difficult on that dress. Then again, I am not a seamstress but there isn't intricate lace or beading on the hem. It's very pretty and it looks so airy!

              I'm not much of a risk taker so I would go through the bridal salon, but I wouldn't think you would have a hard time getting it altered elsewhere. I'm no hope. Sorry!

                Thanks ladies, I love it also...the bottom is chiffon so its very airy and not heavy.

                I'm not a risk taker either which is why I was weary about ordering through eBay (Ive never ordered through eBay!!). SO I think I'm going to play it safe and go through the bridal salon

                  Your dress is beautiful!

                  I would find out exactly what alterations are included. Is it just the hem & bustle, or other things as well.

                  I bought a maggie and ended up paying 235 for alterations. I am really short and I couldn't order petite because I had limited time to get it and petite was going to take longer, and she needed to adjust a couple of areas, put cups in, etc... Because I had the corset back even if I lost some weight before after I was measured, it didn't really change how it fit very much.

                  Is the dress on ebay the size you would order?

                  One good thing about the bottom of your dress is that you don't have any beading, so that will make it a lot easier for hemming.

                    Thats a very good point, I will ask them to put that in writing for the free alterations (what if they dont do anything in writing? hmm, I'm going to call them tomorrow and find out).

                    often to get them to match a price, the low price needs to be from another authorized retailer FYI. but angela is right, try calling around different bridal shops in your area and see if you can find it any cheaper.
