That isn’t too far off from a traditional schedule.  I think the only thing that would bother me is  the last fitting just a day or 2 before the wedding- I’d move it up at least a few days if you can.  If something wasn’t right there isn’t any time to fix.  I’m in a similar situation, and plan on a similar schedule for the first 2 fittings and then my last fitting a week before the wedding.  I had thought about getting fitted where I live, but I was nervous about transporting the dress and I’d have nowhere to put it where my fiance wouldn’t see it (we share a walkin closet).

This schedule is actually typical.I would not be worried.The first fitting happens when you initially get the dress.During the first fitting ,the big changes will be addressed(hem,side seams,bustle).By the second fitting all or most of the alterations would be done and you would be seeing your altered dress…for the most part,unless you want to change something.The last fitting your dress would be steamed or pressed and ffully altered.So unless you have really drastic alterations,like letting seams out or taking a dress in 2 or more sizes,don’t worry.You should be just fine
