    Wow, I just got off the phone with a different store (chrissy O, thx Sharon for the suggestion ) that is an authorized Maggie Sottero retailer and she quoted me $658 for the dress!!!!
    That is much better than $850! On top of that, she asked me how tall I was and recommended that I order the petite size so I dont need to get it hemmed...and I get a free veil! Woohoo.....thx ladies!!

            Well the saga continues....I called the original bridal shop that was charging me the $850 (with "free alterations") and asked if they can match the price....the owner said she will match the price of $656 but obviously that does not include alterations...Now I'm wondering (fron reading other threads about alterations) if I should just pay the $850 bc it includes the alterations and as we all know alterations can be costly. LOL....it never ends. I just want to order my dress already!

              I say you go with the cheaper dress. You are getting the petite size, so that should help with the alterations. Also, there is a good possiblity that you can get it alter cheaper someone else.

                I agree with Yari. The corset back is very flexible, if you choose the size carefully likely not much alteration will be needed.

                  Hi Jess! I don't know how I"ve missed this thread. I'm so glad you're finding cheaper prices!

                  Just a thought - call RK Bridal here in the city. They say they will beat any price quote (you may have to document it), and they will cap the cost of your alterations. I think mine were capped at $250 or $300. And I've got a lace hem that is going to have to be taken off and added back after they shorten it.

                    Thanks again ladies for the advice and suggestions!!
                    I really appreciate the feedback...I think I am going to go with the cheaper gown in petite and take it from there.
