Wedding dress alteration help
Hi, hoping for some advice - my wedding is in 4 weeks. I bought a sample dress over a year ago (which was still very expensive!!) and have gone to one of the alteration companies recommended by the shop I bought the dress from. There is a lot of lace so I didn't want to risk it being butchered. It is in London so I appreciate you pay 'London prices' - we budgeted £400 which we thought was still excessive, however fitting one the agreed price was £610 which I nearly choked at, however we reluctantly agreed to pay it (mad I know). This one to take in, take up the length/hem and put in a bustle. Fitting 2 - the lady attempted to bustle the dress however couldnt make it look good because of the long train so she recommended having that taken in two. Cut to over an hour later of her doing he work at the end of the session she said that will be an additional £145! I nearly died. I am so upset and have no idea what to do, I feel like they have me over a barrel as they have my dress and we already agreed to them doing the work. No idea what I should do, but I thought that the price we agreed in session one was the price, but it turns out it isn't.
