@masterteee2013:  My wedding is in August and mine will be in April when my dress comes in. That gives me about 4 months, and it sounds like you are also about 4.5 months out (since I’m only counting through May since you are June 1st). 

ETA: I’m going to have several appts. for fittings, not sure if that changes things.

I’d wait until a month or 2 out.

@masterteee2013:  I didn’t get my dress at DB but I just had my first fitting and my wedding is March.  I don’t think now is necessary.  You should have 2-3 fittings, typically 3 months out, a month out and then a few days before when you pick up your dress.

I was just trying on dresses at DB and when we chatted about alterations(with the alteration dept) they said 2 months(6-8weeks).

My salon was telling me to do it a month before the wedding.  I said “no way” I have to have it done well before that.  I am going to have sooooo many things to do right before the wedding I do not want to have to worry about my dress.  So I negotiated with them and had my first fitting 3 months before.
