Ordered my dress in November for my October wedding.  I was surprised to get it in by the last week of March.  I am doing alterations in June.


assuming your alterations are not major 3 months should be plenty.  If you are going to a separate seamstress though you may want to make an appt now! That sometimes can be the timeliess part

I’m gettin married August 5 and I wont be able to pick up my dress until the end of May. I have zero concerns about this. 2 months is plenty of time for alterations. You will be fine with 3 months.

My last alteration appt. was a week before the wedding. Seven month engagement and took the dress six months. You’ll be fine.

I got my dress less than 2 months before the wedding.  I dreaded the 2wks it was in my bedroom prior to my first fitting.  My final fitting is less than 2wks before my wedding.  Don’t worry at all. You know it’ll be safe, clean, and fresh for your big day!

I started alterations less than a month before the wedding. It’s disappointing it won’t be here earlier but you will have plenty of time for alterations.

I ordered my dress in January for an early August wedding with no issues. They really don’t need 3 months to alter it,
