Dress alteration??

So I am picking up my dress Friday (SOOOOOOOO excited!) I'm wondering when is everyone getting their alterations done. I'm thinking mid-to late December for me since all I'm getting is either another pickup added to my skirt or having it shortened about an inch. Ladies?

Re: Dress alteration??

  • I am picking up my dress Tues before Thanksgiving, and have an alterations appointment for Friday after Thanksgiving.  I want it to be finished soon so I can get my bridals done.  It will take 4-6 weeks for mine.  Its just one lady in a shop who does it, so she just adds me to the next in line.
  • i have it scheduled for the 2nd weekend in january...thats when the lady told me would be good to schedule it.

  • I was told 6-8 weeks before the wedding, so I'll be starting in January.
  • My appointment is Jan 8th.  I had it scheduled for Nov, but since I got a new dress I moved it up.  she told me Jan was plenty of time

  • Well I have to try mine on and see just how much alterations need to be done then I'll call the seamstress. But I'm guessing january.
  • I already had my first one. I'm going to pick it up the first week of December in case there is anything else that needs to be done. My portraits are going to be in early february, so I'll need it totally done by then. Also, if you're getting it done at a place like DB, watch out for prom time sneaking up on us...
  • I'm a little behind. My dress order is being processed today. Yikes. They said 12 weeks max, so I still have 3-4 weeks for alterations. As long as I don't change physical dress sizes, all I'll need is length and strap adjustments.

  • I got my dress at David's Bridal super early so it's at home in the closet. My alterations appt is Dec. 5th. That is the date they suggested.
  • My dress needs some major bodice alterations so the top doesn't gap -- but my mom's doing them so it'll be whenever she gets around to it. Miraculously enough, Once I put on my shoes, the dress doesn't have to be hemmed! =]
