Honestly, if you have a good seamstress it shouldn’t matter. Yes, it will be more work for them and may cost you more but, my bridal shop told me in the absolute worst case scenario they could take a completly unaltered dress and have it altered perfectly in 24 hours (having trouble getting my bridesmaids dresses in and have no idea when they will be here or any tracking on them – I know it’s not a bridal gown but, it should be no different).

And congrats on the weight loss. I am currently working with a trainer as well and I am trying to get down as low as possible before my first fitting (which I still need to schedule)

Can you wait a little longer for your fittings?  My dress JUST came in today – my wedding is in a week (this was NOT BY CHOICE) but my first fitting is today – luckily, I don’t need it hemmed or taken in or out, but maybe you can push your first fitting back another few weeks – I am sure they will still have plenty of time.

@KatieLu:  I would call your dress shop and find out. It depends on their schedule.

@KatieLu:  Yeah, I’d definitely call and have them reschedule it for you…. I’m sure it won’t be a problem!  They probably want you to come so early hoping you’ll need more alterations as the wedding approaches so they can charge you more!  (maybe not, but this wedding industry really makes me think that’s the case!)  Most brides do end up losing weight – either from an effort they’re making to get in better shape, or due to stress & nerves…. i don’t know why some bridal shops do their fittings so far ahead of the wedding other than thinking they want more $$ for doing all the different alterations!

Ou should postpone. You have lots of time still.
