Normally the length is the last thing they alter, so to speak, first alterations at the waist. But that`s only my experience. My first fitting will be 6 weeks before the wedding, the waist will be taken in (hopefully I don’t gain that weight I already lost;-), and my seamstress said that approx. two or three weeks later the length will be altered. Everything else has to be fitted before the lenght. Perhaps you can ask what is the latest they can do the alterations?

My first fitting was also 6 weeks before the wedding.  I needed to lose about an inch to fit into my dress.  I did zumba twice a week and did South Beach for a month.  I lost 15lbs and a little more than an inch.  I’m not doing SB as hard core as I was, but I definitely changed my eating habits because of it.
