My wedding isnt until June but it depends on how extensive your alterations are going to be. Mine are complex so I am going this week. A friend of mine is getting married in May and she hasnt even made an appointment yet. Do you have an alterations company yet? If not, ask around, look at online recommendations. Once you decide on a company, call & ask what they would recommend. 

As far as bridesmaid dresses, mine arent coming in until March so the girls will do those on their own time. They can do those whenever as bm dress alterations are less extensive and usually pretty straight forward.

my bridal shop had me go in to get alterations started about 2 months before my wedding.

i think my mom had her alterations done about a month before?

i’d call the shop to see what they’d suggest. it may depend on what kind of alterations you all need.

@MissFireFlower:  I’m a worrier so, I already got my alterations done (wedding May 4th). My weight doesn’t fluctuate too much. 

My sister had a baby 1 year ago and works out dilligently. She’s still losing weight, even though she’s already lost all her baby weight so, I told her to get her alterations done in March.
