I did my first fitting about March 7th, sooooo 3 months. 🙂 I’m in the same predicament as you, I live in NC and my dress is in CT, I already had my second fitting April 8th.. and wont have my 3rd until May 26th.. I’ve been pretty steady in my weight and while although I would love to lose some weight it’s not happening so I’m working on toning, and I made them take in my dress super tight.. but I would be comfortable either way. 


If you think you are going to lose weight then no definitely do not do it, it’s a pain to the seamstress, I know I get charged more if I lose or gain weight (wtf right?).

The woman who is doing my alterations told me she doesn’t like to do them until 6 weeks out in case of weight loss/gain, but your situation could be different since you may not be able to get up to MA 6 weeks beforehand.  Just explain that to the woman doing the alterations… and then maintain your size so the dress will fit.

I was told 3 months for the initial fitting and then 6 weeks if we need to take in/let out in case of weight gain/loss.
