Mine is on June 1st!!  I booked with my alterations lady more than a year in advance and forgot whether she was supposed to contact me or I should contact her.. so I called her up last week and turned out I was supposed to contact her!!  So I was a little worried I’d be off schedule (late) so I’m glad to hear yours is around the same time!!

You guys are lucky you have your dresses already. Mine won’t be in for another couple of weeks. 🙁

I am going in for my first appt this Tuesday, May 14. Mostly because I am worried whether or not this seamstress can handle taking my dress down a few sizes (I bought a sample that is 3 sizes too big). If she cannot do it, then I have an appt booked with a seamstress I know can do it (but is 1 1/2 hours away) for May 25.

Mine should be pretty straight-forward, so she just told me to contact her at the beginning of July.  It’s an off-the-rack, non bridal-shop dress and it’s stretchy, so it doesn’t have too much to be done.  But SHIT I need to tone up and lose a little flab in the next month and half!!!!!

Since my salon had closed and alterations were supposed to be included I had them done in March. I might take it in somewhere else in July to see if I need any other little things done and to get it pressed.

Sometime in the middle of July, I hope. My wedding isn’t until August 31, and I don’t want to start them too early out as I’m trying to slim down some pretty quickly. I’m afraid if I have them done any earlier than July, it won’t fit right by the end of August.

not an august bride, but because my dress fit so well when i went to try it on a few weeks ago we are only doing two alterations appointments – one about 6 weeks before my wedding and one two weeks before just to do some light tweaking. they did the hem, the cups and the bustle when i went in a few weeks ago so there will only need to be minor adjustments made. so exciting!!

I attended my first alteration appointment about a week and a half ago. I’m scheduled to attend my next one on June 6th. I have one more after that and then I’m done!
