I went for my first fitting 2 months before the wedding.  But you might be in trouble if you wait because there are a lot of weddings in the summer that will be having fittings at the same time.

I already booked my tailor for May 8th, June 26th and July 3rd… those are saturdays, so I think it’s better to book earlier

I went to my first fitting last week and my wedding is in June. I found a really reasonably priced seamstress though, so I had to book quickly, especially to get weekend appointments.

I would check your local boards for seamstress recommendations and start making some calls!

I would say go now. I was told to go about 3 months before the wedding so they have time to do it and if you lose weight right before, you have time for additional alterations. I honestly wouldn’t wait. Are you having before the wedding bridal portraits?

I think you should be fine waiting a month to see if your 1st choice seamstress can work with you.  Most seamstresses can make the alterations in less than 3 months and that includes  several fittings. 


You can also make appointments in advance and if you change your mind just call and let them know so they can fill that appointment.
