Just got the email that my dress has arrived!! I'll be going to the first fitting and picking it up next week. Any questions I should ask as far as alterations or other things go?

    Yay! How exciting! I guess the main thing to ask is how much you anticipate it costing, and how long the alterations person will need. Ask whether you can/should book all your fittings in now, well in advance (I know mine books out) and what they would prefer you bring to each one.

    Alterations are don't at a separate establishment, so I'm calling tomorrow to see if I can book an appointment after my fitting.

    That's exciting! Do you have an idea of what you already want/need altered?

    Consider asking what type of bustle they recommend, if it needs to be bustled.

    I've lost weight so I'll have to get the dress taken in a little. And I'd like it bustled.

    Definitely needs to be bustled. I just hope it looks nice and not like I'm pooping out fabric 😹

    My advice would just be to take your time! Make a list of questions beforehand so you don't feel stressed afterwords. If you have a mom, MOH, bridesmaid, etc. with you ask them to take videos of the bustle. AND SOAK IN EVERY MOMENT OF YOU IN YOUR GOWN!! You won't get that time back.
