How minor are the alterations? Have you already sorted out somewhere to get your dress altered? I think that if it’s only cleaning and getting a bustle sewn in then you’ll be fine but without knowing exactly what you need done I’m not sure. I’m sure you can ask a seamstress to do a rush job for you if you needed it but (again, depending on what needs doing) I think a week should be fine if you get there before. Anything less and I’d start being a bit worried.

Seriously, it’s fine. Do it when you get there. That’s NOTHING in the sewing world and should take a good seamstress at most an hour to do – and the bustle will need to be done with you in it anyways! Give yourself at least 3 days for cleaning it (just in case) and maybe an extra 2 days for alterations. You’ll look great!

I would go ahead and contact potential tailors that you would use and ask them how long it would take them…make them aware of the situation and make certain those alterations are possible. It sounds like they are pretty simple, so it might not be a problem, but I think it is best to be absolutely certain, especially when it is your wedding dress!

I’m with buttons….better safe than sorry. Take all the necessary precautions. You don’t wanna be caught without someone to do your alterations. Call around hun.

Definitely call around, make your appointment well ahead of time, and make sure they can get you in for your final fitting at least 2 or 3 days before the wedding, so that if there are any problems you can hash them out then!
