    I have only one alteration appointment scheduled. Hopefully, it will be a one and done situation.

    Three. I am altering my moms wedding dress (it’s my something old 27yrs) so the first appointment was to discuss what I wanted, the second was to get the correct length of my added detachable train, the final will be within the week of the wedding.

    I’ve only had two. The first was just to see how much work needed to be done and the second was just my final. My dress is all ready to go!

    I ordered my dress 6 weeks ago and there should be no alterations except for adding a bustle. I seriously lucked out!

    I will have 2 to 3 come spring time. Takes 8 months for my dress to come in from the designer. Can't wait to see it when it arrives!

    I had my first filling last week and my second one next month. All i had to have done was a hem and bustle, so hopefully the next will be the last.

    I’ve had 3 so far and I’ll need at least 2 more. I keep losing weight so that is making things difficult.

    I had one appointment to try on the dress when it arrived, another appointment 2 months before the wedding to actually get it fitted, a third appointment to try it on, then I had to go back 3 times the week of the fitting because I had lost so much weight that I needed it altered another time. I was so stressed because the seamstress was working on it the day before my wedding. Luckily, it came out perfect! So, I’d say a total of 6 times 🤦🏻‍♀️

    I haven't gone looking for my dress yet, so i'm not sure. I had bariatric surgery a couple of years ago so i'm still losing weight. I think the amount of them will depend partially on the scale too
