Sarah, At this point $300 is sounding like a steal! $300 was about what I had expected to spend. But alterations are highway robbery!

My friend brought a wedding dress from a bridal store and alterations were free. Did you not buy your dress from a store? I guess someone else would know better than me about the cost, but really, that seems a bit high!
Jessica ~ You're lucky you didn't need alterations. I bought my dress online instead of at a bridal salon.

But I'm having the same stuff done to my dress are you are to yours. OMG if that's what they tell me, I will fall over.
Tammy ~ I'm sure yours won't be that expensive. I'm curious to hear how your fitting goes and how much it is going to cost you.

They are just making money off of you because you didn't buy your dress from them!!
Natalie ~ The alterations place I took my dress to was actually part of a dry cleaners. But, they are in La Jolla. Have you heard of La Jolla? ...Let's just say add 100% to the cost of anything in that town....way out of my league. I think they saw me coming in my levis, flip flops and long sleeve target t-shirt....HA!!

the price of my dress included a hollow to hem ( i think that's what it's called anyway) so i am hoping that i have minimal alterations. mainly just put the boobie holders in! and since i am clearly not losing any weight - there shouldn't be much to take in either!

You know what ladies I am just not going to wear a bra. There is no way I can afford a built in bra. I seriously went over budget with my dress. Errrr.....

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • 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.
