Sooo Ive been procrastinating because we are having a Destination Wedding and thought I had all the time in the world and now its 5 months away, are you kidding me? 5 MONTHS!!!! I have not gotten a veil, havent taken my dress in for alterations, have not ordered and guest favours, we dont have Fiance suit or any Groomsmen clothing, i dont have my shoes, havent started my hair appointments (going from brown with blonde highlights to straight brown which my hair dresser said will take at least 2 sesions to get the colour I want) plus other things….CRAP!!! How long to dress alterations take? I still need to order a mermaid slip for under my dress before alterations can be done…amI way in over my head here? How long will this take? Weddings always seem so far away but creep up on ya, now im starting to panick that Im not going to have everything done!

I think you will still have time to get all of that done,but you better get started! I’d say you need to get your slip and shoes (or atleast shoe height), so that you can get going on alterations.Time for alternations really depends on what kind of alternations you need and how busy the seamstress is. Sometimes it takes a few fittings to get it fitting just right. I think guest favors is something you can skip if you need to, especially since you are having a dw. For the veil, there are lots of great etsy sellers who make veils, maybe they could custom make your idea?

I think you have plenty of time to get it all done, but wouldn’t put it off for much longer! Good luck! I’m in the same boat now 7 months out and realizing I don’t have all the time in the world I thought I did – it totally creeps up on you!

Five months is still plenty of time, but you should probably aim to start those soon!

I have 3 months and I still have so much to do and feeling like I need to really get on it ASAP. I think you have time but you should get on what you need now… like getting your dress altered. You should get that started now.
