SO I just put a down on my wedding gown, now all i need are the alterations. My wedding isnt until March 2015, Im planning on losing a few pounds before the big day, BUT, I have my first fitting this Weekend August 2nd. Any suggestions or insight if this is too soon or if I should even do the fitting this early?

I would not be doing a fitting this early. Why pay for something you are likely going to have to change again if you are planning on toning up or losing weight? <br /><br />I believe almost all alterations people say 8 weeks…I think some might say 12….but anything earlier than that does not make sense to me.

It depends what alterations you are going to have.
My wedding is 11 mos away, but one of the things we’re altering is adding beading, that part can be done now and then I wont have to worry about having a time crunch.
I’m going to talk to the seamstress when I go to plan out the other alterations, unfortunately for me, her daughter is getting married pretty close to when I am, so we have to make sure we get my dress done in time for her to completely make her daughters dress.
I doubt i’ll change much in size though, so if we get in done early, hopefully it’ll just be minor tweaks.

Yeah, cancel that appointment! Definitely does not make sense.

nila06: When I asked about fittings with my salon they said your first fitting is around 8 weeks prior to the wedding than a fitting after that to make sure nothing else needs to be altered and 1 more fitting a week before to make sure everything fits correctly. I think its a little early to be doing fittings considering you are trying to loose weight. You don’t want them to do alterations now and than again closer to time. I wonder why your salon would agree to do a fitting now knowing you aren’t getting married until March.
