@jujubee89:  It really depends on the tailor. I would suggest waiting to get anything done if you want to lose weight (like I did). But, if you don’t, you could always get it hemmed in the next few months, & then have it taken in a little closer to the wedding, like March or April.

@jujubee89:  Just make sure if you are losing weight you don’t do that too early either, because when you lose weight is makes the dress hang longer & if you have it hemmed before you lose the majority of the weight, it could end up being to long.

I actually just called my bridal salon to ask this same question. They advised me to start about 6 weeks before the wedding.  🙂
