My bridal salon told me that the last fitting would be 4 weeks before the wedding, so I imagine I’ll be taking her home two weeks before the wedding.

I picked mine up from the store in July (it was ordered in May) and I started the fitting process in September.  She finished the dress a week ago (she is amazing!) and gave me a timeline if I needed to come back for a final fitting.

I picked mine up the week of the wedding.  I had two alterations appointments and they stored it until then.

The first time I got married, the salon had in-house alterations, so I didn’t take it home until after the wedding. They kept it after the final fitting and steamed right before I picked it up so that it would be as clean and unwrinkled as possible. The day of the rehearsal, we picked it up at the salon and took it straight to the church.

This time, I picked up my dress 3 months before the wedding since Priscilla of Boston was closing and i couldn’t leave it there. It living in my closet until I took it in for alterations 6 or 7 weeks before the wedding. I did not touch it.

I picked up my dress the day before our wedding. The boutique made it clear that their insurance covered the dress while it is was in their possession only. I wasn’t about to take any chances having it at our house.

I have mine in my closet and I think it’s 7-8 months before I get married…
