I picked up mine at my final fitting 3 weeks before my wedding. I dont think you will need additional alterations if the dress is fitting you perfectly now.

My dress was full lace and steamed properly. I may have wanted them to keep it if it was chiffon or another fabric that may wrinkle more easily just in case. Also, the dress takes up a good bit of room so think about that space you will need for it.

My final fitting is Tomorrow (Friday)!! I am so excited, but my MoH can’t make it to learn the bustle, my mom and Dad will be there though so they will have to show her. It will be 16 days till the wedding!!!

I did. They had to make some minor adjustments to the bustle, but they did that while I waited. It took about 10 minutes.

@TwoStatesBride:  Wow, your dress is stunning!  I love your sash.

I brought my dress home yesterday after my final fitting… here it is (sorry for the somewhat weird angle, I had to sit the camera on a shelf and use the timer!)

Won’t be long now!!

@TwoStatesBride:  Mine still needed work after the 2nd/final fitting (she knew it would and hadn’t closed up the seams or anything).  And the shop owner always steams dresses the day you pick them up, which she tells you to do as close to the wedding as you can.  ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I ended up picking mine up on Thursday morning (on my way out of town), so she did it Wednesday night – for a Sunday wedding.  Then it only had to hang in the living room of my parents’ house (only place with high enough ceilings for the train) for a few days.

@TwoStatesBride:  Gorgeous! I tried that dress on and my sister wanted me to get it. 

I didn’t get to take mine home ๐Ÿ™ Still needs a little adjustment on the liner.
