What was your alterations schedule like? How many fittings did you do? How close to the date? I am getting married in December and need to have my dressed altered to make it a little tighter around the bodice and to add a bustle. The thing is I would also like to wait until I have lost a couple of pounds (not a lot, maybe 6 or so) to have the dress finally done but I am also anxious to see my dress fit my body properly! What would you do? Should I have the bustle done now so I can at least talk to a seamstress about the bodice? Or should I just hang on and be patient and go about a month before once I'm at my final weight? What did you do?
