Got my dress! Now alterations etc?

I'm so excited.. just bought my dress on Friday night at the Priscilla Sample Sale! I knew as soon as a tried it on it was right for me :)

Now... for the recs!?

-Anyone know a place/seamstress that does amazing alterations and wont charge me an arm & a leg?

Also does anyone know of a dry cleaning business that specializes or has done wedding gowns before?

Thanks in advance!

    I am getting my alterations done by Dolly (Dressmaking my Dolly) in Hudson NH.

    She has been very reasonably priced and does great work. 

    I don't have an answer for you for the cleaners though...
     Good Luck

    I am using a woman named Cathy in Rochester.  She is from Andrea's Bridal in Rochester.  I thought my alterations were going to be near $1000 and she told me that the way things currently stand only $200 with the bustle!!!!!  The number is

    Congrats on the dress. Olga's in Nashua is also great for wedding dress alternations.

    Congrats on getting your dress!!

    I did my alterations with Deb from Fit2BWed in Kingston, NH. She did an incredible job - I can't say enough good things about her. She made a lot of tiny adjustments to my dress and put so much attention to detail into my alterations. It really showed, as my dress came out exactly how I had hoped. She was fabulous. We found her prices to be reasonable. My MOH also got her dress hemmed by her, and it was about $30 less expensive than another bridesmaid who got her hem done at David's Bridal.Here's her website: http://fit2bwed.com/

    Hope this helps!
