    I'm hoping for none! My dress fit perfect when I walked out with it in February so I'm hoping it stays that way lol. I wanted to lose a bunch of weight for the wedding but with 2 months left and no weight gone...lol. Doesn't help that I sprained my ankle so I can't get to the gym

    I think I'll be at 4 when all is said and done. The last one is really just to make sure all the details are in place!

    One Smiley smile needed to be shortened and straps taken up. A family member knew a seamstress who was amazing!

    2 with my first dress... And now I have a new dress after significant weight loss (24W to a 16) - for that, I will have 3 total appointments. 1 initial try on, a fitting after alterations and a final fitting about 2 weeks out.

    That won't be bad!! It typically takes that many and I've heard they go by quickly!

    None yet as I haven't picked out a dress. Ive been looking at "used" dresses to save money and I'm hoping to find one and have it fit with minimal alterations needed.

    Just one! But it’s only to get a bustle and cups sewn in.
