Good Saturday, all!
I have an opportunity to add some embellishments to an otherwise completed wedding dress, and really need some input from you pros out there ~
1) Good grief! Where should I even start with pricing? I don’t know what she has in mind to pay, either…
What I do know right now is that she wants some “scattered pearls and sequins” on the skirt. The straps and empire waist are beaded, but the chiffon skirt is naked … And she doesn’t have the beads on hand – need to be located and purchased retail, locally.
2) The wedding is either next weekend (9-5) or the weekend after (9-14).
Presumably that adds a “rush” factor – how much?
3) Never done this before – I’m thinking to knot each set (sequin and bead/pearl) separately, unless they’re *very* close together. Any other suggestions?
4) Clean hands, clean workspace – any other “gotchas” to watch out for, besides the standard Bridezilla warnings – thick skin, deposit and cash?
Thanks hugely, in advance!
Bright Blessings to all ~
Oh – located in the suburbs of Chicago, if that makes a difference…
