Not sure b/c I haven’t had my fittings yet, but I think this sounds right.  My bridal salon was adament that I schedule my last fitting for as late as possible since many brides tend to lose some weight right before the wedding due to stress.  If you have your final fitting too early, then you might end up with a dress that doesn’t fit right on the big day.  This is extra important for strapless dresses, since I for one don’t want my dress falling down.  Yikes!

That is right.  I had my final fitting about a week from the wedding to make sure that everything was done.  The bustle wasn’t completed so we had her put in the rest of the buttons for it and it was all done for when we picked it up about a week later.

That seems right to me, but if you are uncomfortable with the time frame, then change it to what makes you most comfortable.

I would want to have one in the middle– what if the alterations they make now end up not fitting you, and you don’t find out till December?  Eek!  That would feel like too much of a rush.

Eek. I would ask for an alteration appointment in between just to ease my mind. No reason to have another thing to stress about. Good luck!
