(Closed) Dress fitted 2 months prior??

    Getting the dress back 2 months prior is normal. Don't worry.

    Keep her, 2 months isn't that bad & at least you have a back up seamstress.

    Getting the dress 2 months before the wedding is crazy and the back up is risky. Don't do it.

    I'll just comment below.

    I think you’d be fine.  As long as all the work is done in July, that’s not really a weird thing since she’s going on vacation.  The only thing you’d have to worry about it the gaining/losing weight.

    Are you planning on actively losing weight those 2 months prior? if anything, you might need a tweaking, but probably nothing major. Otherwise, just try to maintain whatever size you are for 2 months.

    I’m picking mine up 2 weeks before, with strict instructions to stop loosing weight! So that’s something to think about. Mine has changed in the last few months, and mine is about a month away.

    I would only be worried if you have a hard time maintaining the same weight. Otherwise, I think two months is totally fine – better to have it done early than worry if it’ll get done in time at all!

    I had my dress made by a seamstress and we finished it  three and a half months before the wedding, and then I tried it on with her about a week before the wedding to make sure it didn’t need any tweaks.  It was totally fine, but my weight is pretty stable.  I did make sure to eat well during that time so I didn’t  lose any weight from stress (but that was really fun!).

    If it makes you feel better, I got my dress altered FIVE months before my wedding date.  I don’t fluctuate weight much, and the seamstress did an amazing job (again, similar to you, a lace dress that needed to be taken in–not an easy task).

    If you fluctuate weight easily, you may want to consider a different tailor. But, I think you should be alright.

    When I worked out in the five months leading up to the wedding, I focused on toning and a bit of cardio.  That was helpful for maintaining my weight.
