I would really reccomend going with one seamstress. They all have their “ways!” Haha. I did all my dress alterations in less than a month, because we are close friends with the seamstress and she was sooo fast, too. Just make sure you trust the person!

@NavyBride2013:  I’m in a similar situation… dress is in the state the wedding is in, my home state, (that’s where I bought it!) and I am living about 1000 miles away. My weight hasn’t changed in 5 years so I am just going to bank on that and get my first fitting when I’m home in December, my second one when I’m home in July, and then the last one a few days before the wedding (I have to work right up to it, very inflexible with time off). Fortunately we found a seamstress who gets the situation and is willing to work with us!

I think a month is fine as long as the seamstress says she can do it. I only needed one fitting (well, unless I lose a good amount of weight between now and the wedding or I see something I don’t like when I go to pick it up).

My dress was altered a month prior to our wedding, and I had it in my hands about 2 weeks prior! I think it’s doable.
