101 Days of Wedding Planning: Day 49: Schedule gown fitting appointments if you haven't already done so. (The last appointment should be scheduled no later than three weeks before the wedding.)
This step applies if you've ordered your dress from a bridal salon or if you have a designer creating your dress. Although, if you've bought your dress and have it home, it's still a good idea to fit it one more time a few weeks before the wedding, in case you need to take it to a company for alterations. And you probably still want to have it pressed just before your wedding.
Read through these 5 important tips related to your wedding dress fittings:
1. Schedule your first dress fitting and a final one in enough time to allow for final alterations and having it pressed &/or dry cleaned.
2. Consider bringing along your maid of honor or another attendant to see how the dress fits correctly. You will need help on your wedding day if the dress has a corset, bustle or bow in the back.
3. For your dress fittings, bring the undergarments, shoes and veil you intend to wear on your wedding day. This will ensure that any alterations are accurate. For example, the height of your shoe heels determines how much closer to the ground your dress will fall.
4. After your second or final fitting, try not to have a drastic change in your size. For example, gaining or losing a large amount of weight. You may not have enough time to have your gown adjusted for your new size.
5. Practice walking, as well as sitting down in your dress to make sure it fits correctly and feels comfortable when you do both.
