      wow, $630 is out of control! I just ordered my dress and I got free alterations (basic) because the bridesmaids are getting their dresses there too... I didn't know how good I have it.

      I will agree with everyone here that you need to find a new seamstress. Maybe there's a way to look up reviews of other seamstresses in your area? I would definitely NOT deal with the snarkyness from this seamstress. She does not deserve your business....

          Don't let this get you upset. $630 is high, try to find someone else. And you really don't have to explain to some greedy seamstress that you do have people friends and family coming to your wedding. It's none of her business. If you ever happen to see her again, just turn bridezilla for a hot minute and tell her where to go and get stuffed! Smile. She's insignificant.

            OMG!! I am sooooo sorry you had such a horrible experience!! It should be a fun time, anything involving your dress should be fun and make you feel like a princess!! I am soooooo sorry girl!! Can you go to someone else, or maybe a different seamstress at the bridal shop (depending on how big it is).

            I had a similar situation, but i was just a bridesmaid...you should get your dress to fit perfectly on YOUR day!! And the price is outrageous!! I am having the train cut and hemmed, the entire back and sides taken in and a bustle for $150!

            Take a deep breathe, i know things will turn out!

              Wow that's crazy! Sorry that you were treated that way. I would look somewhere else too. I didn't need a ton of alterations but I got two other dresses altered, and my wedding dress (taken in, hemmed, and bustle) for $175. $630 just sounds outrageous!
