Tell them to schedule you another fitting closer to your actual wedding date.  If they complain that they’re busy – tell them that isn’t your problem!  You paid good money to get this dress from their salon, and you expect them to properly accomodate your fitting needs.

@dscully:  Just tell them that you would prefer a final fitting in March and as you have spent over $1000 on a dress from their salon, you expect them to accommodate you or you will take your dress elsewhere to get altered.

I’m pretty sure that lady is a giant jerk!

Hold off on having your fitting until early March. Your weight could fluctuate HUGELY between January and April, and the shop lady should know that!

@dscully:  …sooo, you’re a paying customer and they’re trying to schedule your fittings around potential customers’ hypothetical fittings that don’t exist yet?  What the hell kind of sense does that make…?  You decide when you go in there, NOT HER.

What a bitch! I’d tell them that doesn’t work for you and you need your fittings closer to your wedding.

@dscully:  my last fitting was 10 days before the wedding and I wouldn’t have allowed it to be any earlier than that.

@dscully:  I totally agree — alterations really have no tasks that are more lucrative/important than wedding dresses; so you should either have them schedule you for another fitting now closer to the wedding or tell them you plan on taking the dress elsewhere.

So sorry for them and Mardi Gras but 4 months out is way too far away from a wedding to do a final fitting. It should be 2 weeks before or so. They’re going to have to just suck it up.

I think it’s mildly insane that they wanted you to have your fitting this far out. I’m getting married in the middle of March and I haven’t even scheduled a fitting yet due to hoping my weight will fluctuate more in the downward direction. Don’t let them mistreat you. You paid money just the same as any of those “hypothetical” brides and other customers.
