My wedding is 19 days away!! I just called to check up on alterations for my dress since my first fitting was over a month ago. She says no worries, she will have me come back next week for my second fitting. This seems like it's really cutting it close, as I know I have lost weight since first fitting. She also hasn't even measured me for length yet. So if she says don't worry do I just trust her?

    It's usually best to have your fittings done very close to the wedding, so that you don't change size. That said, I'd be worried, especially if you've lost a significant amount of weight. Did you let her know this could be an issue? And why on earth hasn't she measured for length? If I were a seamstress, I'd worry about length first, since the fit of the rest of the gown doesn't affect the length to a great extent.

    If they seem confident that it will be done, don't worry.  I was freaking out about my alterations, but the seamstress/dress shop reassured me that everything would be fine.  I am picking up my finished dress on Saturday, only one week before my wedding!

    My wedding is at the end of this month and I go for my second fitting tomorrow...I would think you are pretty good.  Did you need a lot of alterations?  Mine were just minor, so they scheduled fittings farther out.
