You are cutting it a little short, but what I would suggest is make sure you have a seamstress who is ON TOP OF IT. Don’t be scared to find a private seamstress away from your bridal store… they can give you the personal attention you need. My seamstress said she can even do any last minute alterations on the day of!

Go in as soon as the dress comes in and get it fitted that day. If you have someone good (find them now and make sure they have the time in april) they can alter it within the week.

Start researching for someone now though!

If the store gave you that date, they must be confident they can finish the alterations in time. My dress is also arriving a month before the wedding. The contract says there’s a “rush alterations fee” for anything less than 4 weeks. I’m hoping to go with an independent seamstress and bypass that, but at least I know there are options if I can’t find anyone else.

My dress is supposed to be coming in 4 wks before the wedding, and I need some farily significant alterations (changing the entire neckline).  Since I ordered it from netbrides instead of a shop, I’ve already started looking for seamstresses, and they all told me 4-6 wks is ideal to do alterations, but they can always put a rush (for an extra fee of course).

Plus, you always have the chance of it coming in earlier!!
