Sounds risky to me. I was advised to have at least 3 fittings, because even when the take it in, it’s hard to gauge how much until you see it on again. So A) I’m not sure you can count on a good fit from only one fitting and B) I would be worried about last minute weight fluxation. If you can swing another fitting before the wedding, I would do it!

Hi date twin! I had my first fitting yesterday and my second will be 2 weeks before the wedding…so if there’s more alterations, they can fix it. Will you have any time right before the wedding to get in there just in case?

Hmmm I lost 15lbs during the two weeks leading up to my previous wedding. My dress was was two sizes to big on my wedding day and I wasn’t trying. I was honestly attempting to stay the same size but stress does that to me.

I didn’t have any dress fittings and I was okay 🙂
I bought it off the rack 7 months before the wedding. I was living in a different country so there was no opportunity to try it on until the week of the wedding.
I’m sure if it fits you 1 month out, it will fit you the day of 🙂

Hmmm…I think it sounds a little risky. Do you have a history of weight fluctuations? If not, then you might be ok.  If you know that you tend to lose or gain weight in times of stress, I think you might want to consider adding at least one more appointment.

I would definitely try and find a way to have another fitting closer to the wedding, just to be on the safe side. You don’t need any last-minute surprises!

I had my first fiting at the end of April for my June wedding.  My measurements didn’t change but I’m glad I had the second fitting because the bustle wasn’t complete on my dress and we had to have her fix it.
