I had my first one a few weeks ago, and my next one is in mid-March.  I want to have everything done by the weekend of my bridal shower which is on April 14th. That way my mom, all my maids and Future Sister-In-Law who will be in town for the party will be able to come to the alterations place, see me in the dress and we can take it home w/us that day 🙂 I have it all planned out but it might not work as perfectly as I hope, but fingers crossed :-S I also started on the early side b/c my dress is a sample and I need to allocate some time to get it professionally cleaned after it’s altered.

I had my first fitting last Saturday and have my next one scheduled for April 21. She said that’s the last time I have to change in weight so I signed up for a 5k a week later to ensure I keep up with my fitness 😛

My first fitting is March 8th.  I’m modifying my neckline along with the regular alterations.  I have to figure out what I’m wearing underneath by then- and of course lose a few more lbs. 🙂

@JBing:  what kind of modification to your neckline? I want to modify mine, but I don’t know how hard it would be because of the boning etc.

@MrsCarnival:  Yes it is! I’m so excited! I haven’t even tried on my dress since I first got it, so I wouldn’t ruin it haha

@Mrs.Sunflower:  You have a stonger will than me. I went and tried on my whole ensemble when my shoes came in because I “needed to make sure it all worked.” More like I just wanted to try on my dress lol.

I just booked my appointment for Saturday.  I’m kind of nervous!  I’ve lost about 20 pounds since October and would like to lose more.  The seamstress said that we’ll have a few appointments, so she can start now on something like the bustle, and it won’t matter if I lose weight because we’ll have another appointment or 2 later.

I’ve had dresses altered before and they never came out good.  The seamstress got really good reviews on Yelp, so I’m really keeping my fingers crossed that this is better.
