Dress Fitting?

When are you ladies going for your first fitting? My bridal salon suggested that I schedule my first appt. sometime in January. Just wondering when some of you are going in for your fittings. I cannot believe how fast time is moving!!!!!

My dress is supposed to arrive next month.  I'm just playing the waiting game!  So excited!

That sounds awfully early to be starting alterations. Especially if you may lose/gain a few pounds. I thought alterations aren't suppossed to start until 2 months before the big day.

You're right, MrsFonz.  I don't plan on altering anything just yet...I'm going to try and lose as much weight as I can.  My BMs want to see my dress when it arrives and they'd like to check out the dresses they chose.

Hi, I just joined the group, my wedding is April 10 - I still don't have my dress, but most likely will have it made by Milly's Bridal (popular on PW) since after 2 months of shopping I can't find "the one". I didn't realize it takes so long to order them & I didn't want to go shopping until I had lost 10 pounds.


italia I do think it's possible to lose 20 pds by February, just be careful with all the holiday meals! Have you tried Jillian's 30 day shred dvd? I heard about it on PW & bought it, it definately gives you a great work out in only 20 min.

My seamstress resheduled for my final fitting to be December 2nd.  The dress will be done but it will need to be cleaned and pressed.


If I had 20 lbs to loose(yes, I have been there--I started out as a very pudgy kid/teenager) I would take a martial arts class combined with pilates and yoga. I have always done better in class room environments with excercise particularly when they are presented in a non-competitive and progressive manner.


I took a year and a half of kung fu, and I can tell you right now I used to be at war with my body and what I considered to be a very slow and sluggish matabolism.  Afterwards, it was like I had a totally different body, it totally sped up my metabolism and even when I would eat heavily(holiday meals), I would fluctuate arould 1-5lbs but never more.  The great thing about martial arts is the excerises are design to optimize and balance your body's energy usage, so you end up burning alot of calories and building a ton of muscle. It also builds a ton of confidence.

I just emailed them the other day and they said to call at the start of January, but that the dress would not arrive until soem time in February. It makes me nervous to have not seen it for that long since we bought it in August.

i just made an appt for Feb 10th and she said that was fine. I think the alterations will be stretched out over six weeks, one every three weeks. the final fitting should be by the week before the wedding on April 10th. here's to hope for no weight fluctuation due to stress.
