@kerrileigh3:  the shop told me how long they needed.  my dress came in in july. i was going to go in in August for my first fitting but the girl told me to come in a look at the dress (and the Bees told me to go look at it anyway).  The owner said I needed my first fitting then.

 

my 2nd fitting is next week.

 

i think i will have 1 or 2 more.

@kerrileigh3:  my wedding is october 19, 2013.

i would suggest having your first fitting at least 2 months in advance. my first fitting was 3 months out,  next week will be about 2 months out.

 

i think the lady told me i would have 4 fittings.  i’m not sure when the 3rd one will be, but the 4th one will be a few days before when i pick up my dress.

 

i’ve very consistant with my weight.  i have not gained or lost any (and wasn’t planning to) for the wedding so it didn’t matter to me when my dress was altered.

 

you mention you already have your dress so i assume you are taking it to a private seamstress.  the timeline may be different for that.  my bridal shop is doing my alterations.
