I had my first fitting about 2 months before the wedding.  But since you need major alterations, I would probably start earlier than that.  You could probably ask the seamstress how long it will take.

My first fitting is tomorrow, so about 2 and half months before the wedding. I would just call whoever is altering your dress and ask them. That’s all I did.

My first fitting is two months before the wedding, and I would told the alterations  should be completed a month before the wedding.  You might need to start earlier since it is being taken down several sizes – I would ask the store what they recommend.

You have NOTHING to be worried about.  I bought a sample (size 10) and I am a street size 0-2, so not only did the dress have to be taken in a ton, but it also needed a few other things fixed on it and the bridal shop said we didn’t need to start any more than 6-8 weeks before the wedding.  I ended up NOT wearing that dress for various reasons and ended up buying another sample a month before my wedding (again, a sample size 10) and the alterations and bustle were done in 1 fitting.  My second fitting I just tried it on and the seamstress showed my bms how to bustle it.  You will totally be okay.
