Hi bees! My dress just arrived – YAYAYYAYYYY! *flails arms like Kermit the Frog*
But….it arrived half a country away because I bought it with my mom and sisters a couple months ago & now I need to schedule some time for fittings. How many fittings did you do? How far apart were they? I know I need to go to NY a couple times this spring for wedding planning related things anyway so trying to figure out how to space my trips to get dress alterations taken care of! Thank you!!!

@k8: I heard 3 fittings and the last fitting should be no more than 2 weeks away from your wedding date.

I picked it up two weeks before the wedding, and had two fittings–One in March, and one in April (I also got married in May!)

I had 1 fitting, then I tried it on at the pickup to make sure it was fine. But all they had to do to mine was put a bustle in and sew in my belt. So I actually had no alterations done. Probably depends on what type of alterations you need!
Mine was in August.

Generally 3 fittings starting 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding with the last fitting no more than 2 weeks before the wedding. I’m in the same sort of situation, and my salon know the situation and are more willing to be flexible. I’m probably going to start 3 months before- I don’t fluctuate all that much in weight. I expect they need at least a week in between if not more, but they are willing to be able to work with me and my ability with my job to fly home for fittings.

Talk to the shop. I bought my dress close to where my parents live and not me (several hours away). I had 3 fittings total but my last two were in the same weekend. My first was 1 month out. 2nd/3rd were about 1.5weeks away (one was on a Friday and one was on a Saturday).

I don’t understand…are people actually getting their dress altered THREE times??? That sounds so expensive 🙁
