Alterations

Question, I was wondering if you went to an independent party for alterations or if you had your gown altered at the store you bought it? I have heard good thing about Linda Lee, and unsure if I should go with her? Or have Davids alter my gown.

    I use Linda Lee and LOVE her!  She does really good work and is really reasonably priced.  I used her for my wedding dress, a BM dress, and will be using her again for another BM dress.  Well worth the drive over to CB.

    Don't have Davids alter your gown--they are waaaaay overpriced and their service sucks.  I went to Karen Tangeman in Papillion.  I had a 9-point bustle put on my dress, a 5-point bustle on the overlay, a hidden pocket added, the clasp moved on the jacket, and the sleeves shortened, all for $107!  DB would have charged me almost $200 just for all the bustling i needed.

    I too am using Linda Lee after hearing good things on the Knot and a few friends used her.  She loves what she does and shows it.  I requested pricing from the bridal store just to make myself feel better about not spending so much $ at the bridal store.  Terrible experience CS wise. But then I went to Linda and she is so nice and really there to make the bride feel happy.  I had her add an extra piece of fabric on my shoulder and she talked about using a coupon and only charging me for the fabric.  I don't think a big bridal store would be willing to make you a deal.
