9 Money-Saving Tips for Bridesmaids
6. Don’t Alter Your Dress at the Dress Shop
Another wedding truth: Bridesmaids dresses, generally speaking, aren’t the most flattering item you’ve ever owned. And since
you’re trying to make one dress, or a variation thereof, fit a half-dozen body types, said dress usually requires alterations.
The bridal shop will likely try to convince you that you also need extra features, like boning or loops and hooks to hold your bra. (You don’t.) You are going to wear this dress once—and for all of about six hours—so take it to your neighborhood tailor who can hem and tweak it at a reasonable price to make it look great.
