Hi ladies, i had my first dress fitting 6 weeks ago, there is more to be altered at the next one. The wedding is now only 2 weeks away and i have not heard anything about a second fitting yet! I am unsure why it is taking so long, but each time i ask for an estimated date they just tell me they will phone me when it is ready. I trust them, but its getting so close now (especially as there is more to be done) i am starting to get a little worried.
Is this normal? When were your second and third fittings?
Thanks In Advance 🙂

- Wedding: September 2017 - Ceremony and Reception: Historic mansion on the water
I set up all of my fittings in one call. I am getting my alterations done at the salon where I purchased my dress. They had me set three alteration appointments and a fourth just in case. My wedding is 9/30/17. My first fitting is 7/31. My next appointments are 8/18 and 9/15. My fourth appointment is two days before my wedding to pick up my dress but also as a just in case I need last minute fixes.
I would think your second fitting would be scheduled. I do think it strange that they haven’t done so. Are the alterations being done by a salon or private seamstress? I’d push for a date as soon as possible.

I only had two. Bought my dress in Feb, picked it up in Mar, took it back and had my first fitting Jul 1. Had final fitting to determine that it fits properly and picked it up yesterday. I did just get it altered by David’s Bridal (the store I bought mine from.)

The alterations are being done by the bridal stores seamstress, so the same place i purchased it. They did not arrange any dates at all and just said they do them in date order (this was the same with bridesmaids dresses which i bought from a different store but the fittings have been done and we now have the dresses home). I do wish they set dates in advance like they have with you, it would make life much easier and less stressful lol!
