I had my first fitting a little later than I would suggest for you.  I did mine the last week of April before my June wedding.  But if you’re wanting/needing a lot of work done, I’d say do your first fitting closer to early April.  However, only book your first fitting for the time frame in which you don’t plan on changing your body size afterwards. 

As for finding a person to do the alterations, I’d call around to bridal stores and ask who they suggest.  That’s how I found my lady.  She wasn’t an employee of the salon, but an individual they suggested.  A lot of stores will have business cards at the front desk for people.

6-8 weeks before the date. If you do it to early you may need alterations again
