Wedding dress alterations. I made an appointment with the boutique where I bought my wedding dress to get it altered nearly three months before our wedding date. When I got to my appointment, the seamstress came in and before doing anything I wanted an estimate of how much it would cost. She looked at it and priced it out at $500 for alterations!! I nearly fainted. I wasn’t sure how much alterations were supposed to cost, but $500 is not what I was expecting. I called my MOH and she advised me to leave the boutique. I did and my fiancé’s mom found a lady who makes wedding dresses that could do my alterations. I met with her and she is perfect. Tip: be sure to ask the cost before getting into anything & know your MOH is always there to help you 🙂
Response cards. Tip: When creating your wedding invitations and personalizing your ‘reply by’ date on your response cards, be sure to do it two weeks before you need to provide your number to your reception hall or caterer. This will give you enough time to call, text, email the guests who haven’t responded.
