My wedding is October 6th and my dress just came in. I am going to try it on this Saturday but nothing more than that, trying it on. The lady at the salon said to wait until August to start alterations. So you can wait a little bit, you have time.

Ha! Our stories sound the same. I had to get a size 16 to accommodate my hips, but I had to have the bodice taken in and a bustle added (as well as modify the neckline and take off the belt). I have a satin dress with lace overlay. Anyway, I started doing my alterations in April for my June wedding. If I were you, I’d ask the dress shop if August would be too late. Mine were all done about 2 weeks before my wedding (time for bridal portraits) with 2 alterations appointments.

@SuperDuperBrit:  Yeah, I would call and ask just to be safe but I would go with early August to be safe.
