My wedding is in May…and I just had my second fitting. I have one more scheduled appointment and then I pick it up in April. I went for my first fitting in the middle of January. I think they say 6-8 weeks is about standard, unless you have a bunch of changes to be made.

I scheduled my first fitting two and half months prior to my date.  I only need hemming, adjust the straps and bustling.

I don’t when to start alterations either! They have to take my dress in ALOT because of a recent weight loss and toning up. Like, 2 sizes worth!

Great dress! My wedding is at the End of April and I have my first dress fitting on March 11th, they said it would be plenty of time. I have to get it hemmed add a bustle and hopefuly have it taken in! You look great and dont look like you need to lose 30 lbs! But if I were you I would wait till you are a closer to your weight loss goal so it fits perfect 🙂

I’m getting married May 5th, and my first dress fitting (which is only just to get measurements and everything, since like you, I purchased my dress peowned) it is on March 24th! I’m so excited! Anyway, I think that you should be fine with waiting a few months before even making an appointment. Because some shops book fast. Luckily, my lady wasn’t full and I JUST made the appointment. =]

You don’t need to start alterations until 6 weeks out.
