When do you ladies recommend getting your alterations done?  how long before the wedding?  I have my dress already but people are telling me I should wait until a month or so before in case of any weight changes. 

All I need to do is take in the bodice (maybe 1-2 sizes smaller) and get it pressed, so hopefully it won’t cost an arm and a leg.

Nothing.  It is included in the purchase price of the dress.
