I'm getting hitched! On September 6th! My dress doesn't fit, and it needs to be altered.

I am in need of wedding dress alterations on somewhat short notice (apparently a month is short notice!). Does anybody have any recommendations of a quality establishment or of excellent people that handle wedding dresses in the Twin Cities/St. Cloud area? Particularly if they are open on weekends. I am only in the Cities/St. Cloud are on weekends until the wedding, and will not be carting my dress back to the North Shore to get it altered.
I know that I could JFGI, but I have, but I would rather ask Mefites than just guessing.
Secondary question: One place that The Googles recommended would work for me time- and location-wise is the Sew It! store in the mall. I have always thought those places were for simple alterations like pant hems, etc. Do people take their wedding dresses to quick-sew mall shops?
I need the hem lifted, a button sewn on, and the bustline taken in a bit. I could do the button myself but would rather just get it all done at once by a professional. Dress is raw silk and it really does need to be done by the end of August. Memail is awesome too!
