  • Nope, Thus why id didnt go there, I just got my dress at a little boutique in town. It is a designer dress and cost alot of money but all my alterations are free if the dress does not come back perfectly fitting me or if I lose weight. After paying 800 dollers for my dress there would be no way in hell I would pay for alterations!

  • No, and it can really add up. I would avoid raising the whole hem. Look for shoes at the right height so you don't have to. That can run $200 just for that.

  • No, I got my dress, shows, undergarments and alterations there and walked out paying only 700 for the whole thing. It really depends on what alterations you need done. As far as the hem being 200 just for the, my alterations were 75 for everything....it also depends on how big/poofy or dressy the gown is.

  • No, nothing is "included". But IMO, it's far cheaper going to davids bridal than it is going to a bridal boutique. Those dresses can cost well into the thoasands. Where Davids you can get a nice dress for a couple hundred, and spend $100 on simple alterations. Good deal compared to the bridal shoppes out there.
