I paid $300 for bustle, to take in the top and shorten dress. But I can see why yours is expensive, all the fabric on the back probably requires a lot more work. BTW, the dress is beautiful and you look perfect in it!

Gorgeous, gorgeous dress!!! And yes, $200 (especially for that dress) sounds reasonable, actually. I paid $450 for my alterations - all they needed to do was bustle it, shorten the shoulder straps, and do the hem. And my dress's fabric wasn't as intricate as yours. Prepare yourself for the wedding dress related costs....I had to pay $95 just to clean it after the wedding!

Ok, so now I dont feel so bad. I didnt know if $200 was too much or not. I'm just glad nothing else needs to be done.

 

Thanks for all the compliments. I'm getting more and more excited!

I love you dress and you look so pretty in it. I was given a quote about $200 for the bustle. And yeah, I had the same question - didn't seem that big of a deal to do a bustle, but it may be because of the material they're dealing with. You would think for the price you pay for the dress, all of that should come with the package =)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
