My wedding is November and I plan to take my dress for alterations in August (I am taking the bar exam and have NO time then am in Maine for a wedding for week). How long did your alterations take? Is this enough time (3 months)?

Most places only need 4-6 weeks so you should be fine.

My place had them done in 2 weeks. They really shouldn’t take long. It depends on how busy the seamstress is and how much needs to be done to the dress so the answer is different for everyone.

Mine took about three weeks. Your best bet is to talk to your seamstress to find out how busy she is and what alterations need to be done. I originally wanted to start then earlier because I thought it would take longer but my seamstress actually advised against starting any earlier than a month ahead of time.
