I had three dresses due to various issues and I picked up two of them from alterations 3 days before the wedding! I was trying not to freak out because I already had Dress1 as a backup. They both had slight alterations issues but because I’d run out of time there was nothing I could do. I ended up wearing one of them and despite some ill fitting around the boobs and it almost falling during our dance, it worked out. I enjoy my pictures very much. So even if it’s not 100% perfect, things have a way of working out on that day.

Compared to my situation 8 days is plenty of time, so don’t worry, you’ll have your dress in time and I’m sure it will look wonderful!

I just picked up my dress yesterday and my wedding is Friday.  Everything was fine. My seamstress was really busy so she pushed things back a bit.  I wouldn’t worry about it.  They probably deal with this all the time.

I’m not picking my dress up until Thursday and my wedding is Saturday!  I wouldn’t worry about this too much.

My final fitting is going to be on the 10th, and I’ll probably pick it up only a few days before the wedding. Less time with me = less time I can screw it up. (Wedding’s on the 19th)

I had the opposite problem – I had my final alterations done too long BEFORE the wedding. I have the same wedding date as you, and I decided on a whim to try it on the other day, and its too big! I had lost weight between picking up my dress and trying it on a month later. My bridal shop is 3 hours away, so I scrambled to find a freelance seamstress online, begged her to fit me in on short notice, and am getting it taken in. I pick it up next Tuesday a mere 12 hours before I’m due on a flight to head out to my hometown, where I’m getting married.

All that to say – I feel for ya!
