Try it on, and make sure it still fits!

 You can probably wait until about 2 months before the wedding to start fittings, but check with a seamstress to see what they reccomend based on your dress!

I started doing my first fitting last week, just because the designer only made 2!  I’m a size 0 and the dress is size 4….you get the picture, a lot of alterations.  Its best to start knowing where your at, and if there need some work, its nice to get the head start….if you feel a little snug then you can try leaving a little room.  You want to be comfortable in your gown….

My wedding is May 34 2008 and the shop where I bought my dress recommended at least 4 months so I go for my 1st fitting Jan 23rd. Just to be on the safe side I would find a seamstress and start your fitting soon.

I was a 7/7/07 bride.  I bought my dress in June 2006 and lost close to 30 lbs before my fitting.  My first fitting was April 24 and the only work it needed was a bustle.  Thank goodness for corset dresses!
