    Hi I was just wondering how long in advance to the big day do you have measurements taken/alterations made to wedding dress? I know I have a while yet but was just curious x

    I had my first fitting eight weeks before the wedding. Then the final fitting and dress collection a week before.

    All I know at the moment is my dress arrives into the shop in Jan and then I take to get altered. I've been recommended seamstresses by the shop so no doubt they will tell me

    I had my final fitting 2 weeks ago. I had to find a seamstress myself though as the shop I bought my dress from closed down. I think it would have been early if I'd had it done instore xxx

    I bought my dress and had it at home. I took it to an alterations shop 3 months before our wedding for my alterations
