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.
