    My wedding was October 4th. I went for my first fitting at the end of August.

    I just went for mine last Saturday for our 10.24.09 cermony.

    Typically you want to do 3 fittings before the wedding. I would schedule your last one no fewer than a couple weeks before the wedding and then do the first one maybe 2 months out. Just put the 2nd one between the first and last somewhere.

    I think my first fitting was about 6 weeks before the wedding.  You should talk to your seamstress too because it is also party based on her schedule.  If you just assume 6 weeks, and then call she might be booked already, especially if you are trying to do it during wedding season.

    My first fitting is scheduled about 10 weeks before the wedding, so I'll have time for a second one if needed.

    My first was 6 weeks out. I went back 3 weeks later for a follow up and everything was fine. I opted to keep the gown at the salon until the week of the wedding, I thought it would be safer there than in a room at my home with the cats around it. My Mom and Sister came along with me to pick it up so I could try it on one last time and they could go over how to bustle it.
