i think you have plenty of time – but keep in mind that the time frame your dress is coming in is the typical time frame. if you werent comfortable with that they should have let you rush it though. i ordered mine in december and its getting here next weekend. I am thinkign i will get my first alterations done at the end of may.

I think you have plenty of time.  Are you planning to use the bridal shop’s alterations team?  I would suggest finding an independent seamstress.  I used a great one and she did my dress in like 4 weeks (2 fittings).  And she didn’t charge me an arm and a leg!  🙂

YOu should definitely find a seamstress to finish alteration in less than 8 weeks!  Check with a few places to see if they’ll add a cost.  Mine were done in two visit 4 and 1 week before the wedding!

I think you will be fine girl. No stressing…seamstresses know how stressful a wedding can be and they will work with you on prices if things need to be rushed….at least they should.  But I doubt anything will be rushed. You will be fine 🙂

My dress was ordered today, and it supposed to come the first week of August.  That leaves with about 7 weeks.  I only had a six month engagement to work with, so it was the best I could do.  If it makes you feel any better, I feel fine about the situation.  I think alterations can be done in 4-6 weeks, no problem.
