Do you have a budget for your wedding gown? The most important question to ask your bridal consultant is; “How much will my bridal gown alterations cost?” This is such an essential question to ask because some salons’ alterations START at $400. Caryn’s Bridals, Formals & Tuxedos feels standard bridal gown alterations (hem, bustle, steaming, storage, taking in/letting out) should never exceed $195. Here at Caryn’s we charge only $195 for standard bridal gown alterations on gowns that are purchased at our salon. Why would you want to spend more on your alterations than you spent on your actual bridal gown?
