@springbride23:  I just had my first fitting.  The store and I both thought it was a bit early, but they called and asked me if I wanted to come in anyway.  I figured, why not.  Turns out, the dress needs a lot of work so they want me to come in for a total of three fittings–one closer to March and the last one closer to June.  It all depends.  Perhaps you can call the store and ask about their turnaround time?

I’m doing mine the end of March. They said it’s earlier than normal but it’s my spring break and the only time I’ll be home so that’s when I’m going! It’s also a sample dress so it’s currently hugeeee.

@springbride23:  My dress came in about a week ago, and I just called the alterations specialist yesterday evening. I am still waiting to hear back from her. I’m not sure how the timeline works!

My bridal salon recommended April when I called last week, so that’s what I’m aiming for. I had absolutely no clue when I was supposed to start them haha.

I already had my first fitting. All I needed was a hem and a bustle. Plus I didnt have to order the dress because it was my size and it was the last one. I get to pick it up next wed. Ill go in two weeks before to have it steamed and made sure everything is ok

@springbride23:  I’m boning to do my first fitting the middle of April and have 2 or 3 depending on what all needs to be done. I don’t think I need a lot done though.

I was told to allow 6-8 weeks for alterations and my bridal photo session is April 17th.  We started alterations last week.  My dress fits like a glove and only needs a hem, bustle, and cups sewn in.  They said it would take about 2 weeks.  It’ll be ready way before the wedding, but my weight hasn’t changed since I ordered the dress in July so I’m not worried about the fit changing.  They’ll keep my dress until my bridals and then it’ll stay safely hidden in my parents’ closet until the wedding day!

I think I’ll have my first one at the end of March or early April. We’re sending out our invites March 14th and getting our marriage license the week of March 16th so I want to wait to do my first fitting after all that stuff is taken care of.

@springbride23:  I think mine might be a bit late, but I’m considering changing my neckline and can’t go in until the beginning of April (my wedding dress isn’t with me until then, it’s at FI’s parents’ house).
