    @future_mrs_sommer:  I thought normally you have 3 appointmets (6 weeks, 4 weeks, 2 weeks). I would trust her judgement unless you know you need the dress taken in or the dress has a lot of beading/lace.

    I only had one appointment about a month out from our wedding day, and it worked out just fine!

    I don’t think it should be an issue then. Shortening a dress is usually pretty simple (the only time it isn’t is when there is beading/lace on the bottom or if it has a lot of layers).

    I had mine altered in 9 days.  Depends on the place, and I’d call ahead!

    It depends on how much other work she has. If she doesn’t have a lot of other dresses completing for her him, than 28 days is definitely enough time!

    Hmm I was told to start alterations 2 months ahead. But if you need minimal work maybe that will be ok? If you are really worried call her back an ask if you can come earlier just to be sure?
