Hi girls, :wv Just wondering how much alterations generally cost. If its gonna add €€€ to the dress cost I'd better rethink my budget :o0 I'd love to get your advice :thnk

i think if you buy in a shop here it might not be too bad but i suppose that could really depend on what they have to do but if you have to get a dress you bought abroad done it might get a bit harder to find someone reputable thats not going to charge the earth

Thanks girls. I suppose I'll have to get asking in the shops. I completely forgot in the 2 I've been to and then it dawned on me that it could be expensive...I could cope with 150euro!

it all depends on where you're getting it done, if its the bridal shops in dublin they usually charge €120 that's what i've been told so far but in the country it can be a little cheaper. Haggle with the shops. :wv

I'm getting my alterations done in the shop where I bought my dress and I was told 150-200 depending on what has to be done.
