@kat912:  I have a May 3 wedding and I’m having my first fitting March 22 & final fitting April 4th. 

As long as you’re fine with taking your bridals after April 17th, then that’s all dandy. I wouldn’t want to get my fitting too FAR from my wedding because I have a tendency to fluctuate in weight.

@kat912:  I would think the closer to the wedding the better with a cushion of a week or two for any issues provided you have already seen and tried on the dress before hand.

Several brides I know ended up losing weight between their fittings and big day leaving their dress a little looser than planned. The longer you can wait the more perfectly fitted the dress will be!

I only had one fitting–my changes were pretty minor, like yours. My single fitting was less than three weeks before the wedding due to winter weather insanity, and it was totally fine!! I would not worry.

@kat912:  Eesh. I brought mine in… early January? I think? Yeahhh, I waited a while. I had to have two fittings and I’m picking it up tonight. Don’t worry. 🙂

I didn’t start my alterations until one month prior.
