Alterations

Can anybody suggest a place to get alterations on my bridal gown done?  The dress has some beading and rhinestones along most of the seams and since I need to have the dress taken in, the beading will need to be removed and then put back on.  Plus the dress has 4 layers to it so there will be alot going on. 

I went to my first place today to get a quote and it seemed high... a little over $300.  Is that typical?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I do want this to be done right.  Thank you!!!

    I took my dress to a place on NW Military near Lockhill-Selma in a shopping center with a place called Three Legged Monkey. The shop simply says Dressmaker, so I'm not sure if that's actually the business name. I had taken my dress somewhere else, and was not satisfied with the results, so I took it to "Dressmaker" and she made it perfect! My dress was also pretty intricate, and I paid about $160. Hope this helps and good luck!

    Thank you so much!  I looked it up and it's called Eunique Dressmaking for anybody else that might be looking.  Thanks again!  I'll add it to the list of places to check out.

    Call perfect fit bridal and casual tailoring.  Van is great.

    I just got engaged but I take all my after-5 attire to Sew Chic in Alamo Heights.  They are reasonably priced, but the quality of work and service is uncomparable to anywhere else.  I will most likely get my bridal alterations there as well.
