My dress is arriving mid-June and I’ll probably go the beginning of July.  I’m allowing 6-8 weeks for alterations.

Same. I already have my dress, so I’m spending my time until July altering myself (hardy har har) to better fit the dress.

I’m not a September bride, but my alterations lady needs about 7-8 weeks.  She is independant though, if you are going thru a bridal shop, it might take longer!

Yay Sept. 18! I only need to have mine hemmed and since it lives at my mom’s I’m going in April when I am next at her house. I didn’T imagine it would take the seamstress more than a week (my other alternative was to go the week before hte wedding) thanks for sharing wait times.

My dress has been in since Dec.  I’m so impatient to wear it for real!  I don’t need much alteration, so i’m not getting them done until mid-august.  (By not much done, I mean they pretty much only have to sew in bra cups … I got a hollow-to-hem custom done to avoid heavy alterations).

Yay September 18! I’m done! πŸ™‚ It took about a month for her to get all the alterations done. I would like to try and lose some weight before the wedding, but honestly, I don’t think i’ll lose that much to make a difference! Plus my dress is corset back, so I can always tighten it up!! πŸ™‚

I actually had NO CLUE when I’m supposed to do this- given your responses, I’d say I’m supposed to do it around July. Thanks, bees! πŸ™‚

My dress isn’t here yet. They say it should arrive in April or May so I think I will start in on fittings in July. I am hoping they have to take it in by then…if only I could stop eating all together

My dress hasn’t come in yet, although I am dying for it to!  I am only having the length altered, so hopefully I can knock that out when I go pick my dress up.

My dress has been in since December.  They told me at the shop that fittings would be best to start in July.  I’m only doing the hem and bustle first … saving the bodice for the last minute since I’ve been losing weight,
