Dress Alterations

One of my BM dresses came in!!! YAY!!!

My question is: Should I make them get their dresses at the same place as my dress or let them go where they are comfortable going? My tailor is AMAZING and he is VERY inexpensive! Like, he reconstucted a whole suit for me {took in the jacket, made the sleeves smaller, took out the skirt, cut the skirt, and moved the pretty pleats up after making the skirt shorter} for about $40!!!

So, my tailor or whoever they want?

    I am allowing mine to go wherever they want as my BM's are spread across the country.  I say offer your tailor as a suggestion and give them the good reviews about him but if they opt for someone else it is their choice. 

    All in one place would seem a lot easier though cause then you know where everyone's stuff is and if everyone is doing what their supposed to as far as making the payments and going for their appointments.

    Giving the option means you have one less thing to micro manage.

    Leave it up to them but offer your guy as a suggestion as PP said. Lucky for me the dress shop offers free alterations so one less thing for me to have to stalk my ladies about!

    P.S. Has your sister said anything about being booted?

    Dang .. I just dropped my dress off today.  $93 to take it in on the side, steam and press it.  I have another dress that needs to be altered... I need your person's info..

    Let them decide and provide the referral to your tailor, if necessary.
