My wedding is July 23rd, and my 1st fitting is May 27th – a little less then 2 months out…i’m good with that, i wouldn’t stress about it at ALL.

I know i’ll need my dress hemmed, since i’m a short-ass (5-1″) and a bustle.  When i tried it on when it came into the store, one of the ladies said i might need it taken in a little around the underam….so we’ll see!

I had my first fitting last week. I just had a bustle, cups, and taken in a bit at the top. It should be ready for the second fitting the first week in June. My seamstress is pretty fast though. I guess timing just depends on how many people your seamstress has, and how fast she is.

DB recommended having alterations done a minimum of 8 weeks before the wedding.  I’m out of town until 5 weeks before the wedding so mine were done 5 months before the wedding.  I go pick up my dress next Tuesday, 31st May, the day after I get back in the country.  Touch wood, nothing much has changed during my months away!

My wedding is July 30th and I’m having my first fitting tomorrow!  It’s a sample dress that was almost a perfect fit the last time I tried it on and I’ve only lost like 5 pounds so I can’t imagine there will be a lot of altering going on

My 1st fitting is tomorrow and my wedding is 7/7.  I found an independent seamstress who only handles a couple of projects since she has a full time job.  I need a hem, possibly a bustle(chiffon train) and some bodice work.  We’ve already exchanged emails, pics and discussed @ length the process.

My dress is altered and ready to go! I picked it up May 16th, I think, for my July 16th wedding. I hardly needed alterations though. It basically fit perfectly but needed to be taken in on top and I had cups put in.

My first fitting was on May 7. My second is June 11. I’ll probably schedule my final fitting (if needed) a week or two before the big day!

My first fitting was May 13. My second fitting is May 31, and then I will probably have another one in mid-June.
