your dress is beautiful. mine is estimated to be $300 for hemming, taking it in, and the bustle. she told me the bustle will be $150 to $200. anything wedding related is always an eye opener when i see the price!

You look beautiful in your dress. Sorry not up on prices though, but from reading everyone else, it seems the norm.

Your dress is absoulutely beautiful. But I understand your questioning of the alteration price. I know when I saw your post and saw $200 I was like WHAT?! But then I remembered when I went to my senior prom my alterations cost $300. The top part of my dress was too big and it had ribbons goings across and the seamstress had to take it apart in order to fix it. I know how you ladies love pictures so I posted a pic below so you can see what I am talking about. Personally I think $200 is fine especially if you know this person is going to do a great job on your dress. Well good luck with everything!!!

Thanks! Ok, so I dont feel so bad. It just is so much for 1 day....I already splurged on the dress itself and now I have to add another $200 to it...dang it. But I guess I do have to remember this is someone doing hand work which is always more expensive these days.....and I want it done right so I guess I'll just suck it up. (dang it!).

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
