I’ve always heard 6 weeks before the wedding, but why don’t you talk to the seamstress you’re planning on using.  And I don’t have to pay for my alterations until I pick up my dress and then it’s a flat rate for the work done, not how many times I was there.

That would probably be a question for the seamstress.  While it’s being worked on and until the wedding, I’m sure they would.  But until then, depending on their storage situation, they may not be able to.

from what my seamstress told me, about 3 months out is normal. I am getting married une 5 and my first fitting is March 2, but i will probably need 3 fittings which are usually about 3-4 weeks apart, so ill probably be cutting it close but should be fine.
