I bought a gorgeous discontinued floor sample (Alfred Angelo 404) that is about 2 sizes too big. My wedding is May 26, 2013. I would really love to get it altered and don’t want to lose any more than 5 pounds anyway. I have always worked out but I am going to start working with a personal trainer in the next few weeks. She thinks I should wait before getting the dress altered. I would really love to see how it will look, plus, the dress is so big in the bust area that it doesn’t stay up and I can’t even walk in it. It is a ballroom style.

4 – 6 weeks before the wedding with your final a week before the wedding.

I called the salon I was using for alterations and let them guide me as far as timing. I had my first appointment about 3 months pre-wedding, my second a month later, my third a month after that. My last fitting will most likely be the week before the wedding.
I would wait until January 2013 before even calling to make an appointment.

I would wait until about 2-3 months out. My first fitting is July 14 and my wedding is Sept 22.
