My bridal salon told me that I should definitely do my final fitting as close to my wedding day as possible… and I tend to believe them.  They said that brides tend to either lose or gain weight right before the big day due to all of the stress, and you want your dress to actually FIT on your wedding day.

Have you seen the episode of “How I Met Your Mother” where Lilly tries on her strapless wedding dress before the wedding, and it falls right off due to her recent weight loss from all of the stress?  If you haven’tseen it, you should try to find it on YouTube.  ‘Nuff said.

I just had my first fitting a few weeks ago and they haven’t mentioned anything about a final fitting yet, but maybe they will when I pick it up? They did say the same thing as skibobrown said, that brides tend to lose weight right before the wedding, so I’m assuming it’s gotta be done pretty close to the date.

My final fitting was a little over a week before the wedding.  We needed a little more time because then they pressed the dress for me before the wedding.
