    Looking back, did I need to start in January? probably not, but I guess it depends on how busy your salon is. I had my first fitting a couple of weeks ago for my May wedding, and it was mostly to figure out the bustle, length, and take the dress in generally... I guess with things like that it doesn't matter how much weight I lose! I got a call this week to schedule my second fitting and her earliest date was in March. After that, my last fitting should hopefully be the week before the wedding for any last minute changes.

      OK, well that makes sense. I guess will stick with what my salon told me. I only have to have the bustle done and the bust taken in (boobless, ugh).

        I think you're fine. My 1st fitting is Feb 7th & the last is in March. But, my wedding date changed from March 27th to April 11th. So my fittings were actually based on the March wedding date. Once I changed the date, I never told the salon so I never changed the fittings. I"m wondering if I should do that now. If not, I'm going to have to pray everday from the last fitting in March to the wedding that I don't gain an ounce!

            My salon told me 3 weeks for my first fitting, before I leave on May 1st. I wonder if I should request it a bit sooner?! lol, I can believe some of you May brides have done your first fittings already!

              Wow! I haven't even thought about fittings yet. I guess I should make an appointment!

                I got my veil from Davids Bridal and it was $75. I found a lot on ebay that I liked too for a lot cheaper (after I bought mine).

                  You should be fine. I had my first fitting 2 days after Thanksgiving. Don't stress!

                      i'm scared. my dress doesn't come in until the end of april. that leaves very little time, and i know my dress will be to big.

                      I also about a couple veils off ebay at about $15-20. they are....ok. i'll see how it looks but if it doesn't seem right i figure i could resell or trash one during my stagette!
