How far did you do your first, second, last, etc. dress fittings?
Mine won’t need much altering. Just a little at the bust, and I possibly want to make the neckline more of a sweetheart than the scope it is now.
My date is April 27 so just trying to determine the best time to get these done.

Hi there!! My wedding is on March 1, so my first fitting is this Sat, which will be 6 weeks out.
I’ve seen that it also depends on who your seamstress is. Some want you to come in 8 weeks for the first fitting while others want you there a month out. Best to call whomever is going to do yours and ask….

Like Andie said, it all depends on the seamstress. If I were to use one of the ladies that the bridal shop recommended, my first fitting would be around 4 months out because of how busy they are. But because FI’s aunt’s friend is a seamstress and will be doing my dress, my first fitting will be 2 months out because she’s just has a little small town business.

I have my first dress fitting next week and that’s 6 months out which is what was recommended by my seamstress. Then the second one will be 6 weeks out and then 2 weeks before for the last one

It’s recommended that you do three fittings – 6 weeks, 4 weeks, and 2 weeks from the wedding day. If you don’t need a ton of alterations, I’d go maybe a month before, and then try to do a final fitting 10 days out.
