My dress has been in since September (yep, I tried on my actual dress when I was more than 1 year out). I’m going to call my salon in May to see when they want me to come in. I’m hoping it will need to be taken in

My dress is in (yay!) and i’m going this weekend with some of my bridesmaids to find them dresses. I’m going to try on my dress but probably not have any alterations done until June/July. I want to make sure I am looking my best!

We share the same wedding date, melv0802! Yay! My dress is due to come in mid-June, so I’m planning on getting fitted the end of June so that gives my seamstress a month to bustle my dress and have it ready for my bridal pix at the beginning of August.

I ended up buying the sample of my dress since they weren’t going to be carrying at the bridal shop anymore at 50% off! Even though I already have it, I’m starting alterations in July so I have a few months to really get in shape!

My dress is supposed to come in at the end of May. I’ll come in and verify that it is the dress and then fittings don’t start till August. There’ll be 2 in August and one in Sept — two weeks before the wedding. I’m told that last one is really important because bridal stress can = weight loss or gain in a lot of women.

My dress was shipped on April 10 from Justin Alexander, and should be here any day (hopefully). I suppose it has to through customs and so on…not sure! Anyhow, I feel like it is taking FOREVER!! So, my first fitting will be as soon as it comes in. =)
