I was told 5-6 weeks, but I’m having a ton done to it, including but not limited to:

adding a bustle

adding a crinoline

sewing in cups

ordered extra length bc sample was ever so slightly short with shoes on – so might have to be hemmed.

Wedding is beginning of July and I go for my first fitting towards the end of May.

I’d ask the shop, it’s probably more a matter of when they can get you in the schedule and how long it’ll take them to actually do the alterations than anything us in bee-world can predict. Maybe they could do the hem and bustle and wait to take in the bodice until pretty close to time?

My shop said they like to have a three week turnaround time for wedding dress alterations.
