I think it depends how intense the alterations are.

I have my secnd fitting this friday and my wedding is the 20th

I think you should be good!

Also, I would go in the 13th! just in case a little more needs fixing it gives you more of a cushion!

Good luck bee!

My final fitting was about a week before my wedding. They made a few tiny adjustments and then I picked it up the day before we left (destination wedding). They do seem to always want the last fitting pretty close to the wedding date.

rennp:  LOL, look for an off the rack?! Girl, you need to relax! I’d go w/the 13th. Youll be fine. It’s not like the shops just gonna say, “Oh well, we dont have it ready”. Trust me. A seamstress would be working day and night if something wasnt right at the last minute.

I had big alterations done over 3 fittings. The last one was 9 days before I had to fly out to my wedding and it worked out well. The last one took ages as they actually did the work while I waited. A bit stressful but worked out perfectly!!

I’ll be picking up my dress this weekend for a 5/28 destination wedding (we leave the 20th!). She’s had it since February, but that’s a different story entirely.
