title pretty much says it all. Haven’t heard from salon until today about dress. She causually lets me know it’s done and ready for second fitting And I can come in either the 13th or the 17th for next fitting…. The wedding is the 21st
is this going to be ok?!
just want to note we did our first fitting in March and I was told they would contact me when it was time to schedule my second fitting. I had called/ emailed a few times about this and this is the first time theyve contacted me .. Should I be looking for an off the rack dress right about now?!

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!

Ok well that makes me feel better. I wasn’t sure so I wanted to see if this was typical before getting really worried.
she does still need to take it in some around my lower back, but she wanted to wait in case I lost weight (I didn’t). So we’ll see how it goes. I’m definitely going on Friday

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!!

- Wedding: May 2016 - Cherry Orchard
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.
