I haven’t had mine yet, but my wedding is October 2, and I was told my first fitting will be early August, 2nd fitting late August and final fitting mid September

I work in bridal and usually you have second fitting two weeks before the day just in case the seamstress missed anything and she can have time to go back and fix it. However if you are comfotrable with only a week between the fitting and your wedding that’s fine just be aware it’s not much to fix anything.

I was told to not even go in until 7 weeks before hand, the man altering my dress said he doesn’t like to have a bride come in before that because weight can change even if the bride isn’t trying to gain/lose weight and the final fitting is the week before so if he has to make any minor changes he still has a day or so to do them.

My second fitting was a week before the wedding. First fitting was a month. Plenty of time – plus they kept the dress for me so I didn’t have to hid it in my house.
