    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.....
