 My bridal shop told me to come in January/February but that seems early to me! I’m thinking I’ll leave it until late February.

Not sure, my dress just got in and they told me it could take a few months!!! Might start in jan/feb just because I like getting things done early and I will stress about it.  My weight is pretty regular so i don’t think there should be a problem doing it in the new year.

I was told to start getting alterations about 3 months out from the date. But I’m not sure yet if I want to change my zip-up dress to a corset-style, which would mean more alterations.

Unless I really really trusted the seamstress, I’d go with March

My dress is in, and the salon told me to schedule my first fitting for the first week in March.

My bridal salon told me to come in for my first fitting in February and the second one in April (I have to have it shipped from VA to FL for the wedding and will have to find a place to get it steamed before the wedding).  My wedding date is May 17th.
