1st Fitting...Estimate...$625 - $775!!!! Yikes!

Recommended Posts

I just got mine altered last week and was shocked at my price. My dress was a little under $1k, yet my alterations cost $450!!! I'm just getting it hemmed and the bustle done and the shoulder straps altered a bit - that's it. And, there is no lace or sequins or beading!! Needless to say, I was shocked as well!!

Yea, my dress has a lot of detail around the bodice and at the bottom... but still!!! And i didn't even mention that she charges $100 to press the dress. I considered taking it somewhere else and trying to get it done cheaper but I know the lady and I know that she will do a good job. My sis took her dress 2years ago to a regular seamstress who totally mucked up the entire dress 2 weeks before the ceremony and this lady was able to fix everything. I'm really more mad that the salon ordered the wrong size and refused to admit any wrong doing. The dress is 2 sizes too big and they claim that I must have lost weight. If that was the case everything in my closet would be too big! shameonyou.gif

    • 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.
