Had my first fitting today...$200 for just a bussell????? (pics)

$200 doesn't sound unreasonable, but sometimes it depends on what type of bustle you get.

 

When I went the woman did this really complicated bustle and had I known how complicated it was going to be before she did it, I would have told her to just do a simple one and I think it would have saved me money too. But it depends what you want.

first of all, yes it's too much, BUT unfortunately that's how is usually goes. i paid about $250, because of all the pickups in my skirt, the way they created the bustle they made 16 more pickups and it cost so much to do that.

 

i cant see your pics cause i'm at work, but i'm sure its gorgeous!

I was quoted only 45$ for a bustle (and I think like 80$ to shorten the 5 layers, and 40$ to hand sew the beads back on the bottom front portion). But it makes sense that it would vary a lot depending on the dress. Here is mine

Your dress is beautiful!

 

I'd say $200 is very reasonable for your dress. Usually with a pick up skirt like that they can't do a regular 3 button bustle, they have to do 10 or so and you button each pick -up up.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
