Setting a Timeline for Wedding Dress Alterations

You are engaged to be married. So now it’s time to go wedding dress shopping! But there’s more to just picking out a dress and setting up the wedding dress alterations.

Before you can start looking for your dream wedding dress, you need to set the wedding venue and date first. The venue and date will determine the style of the wedding dress you will wear on your big day.

The exception: You already have envisioned yourself wearing a certain style of wedding dress. In that case, choose the venue and date based on it. With this out of the way and your wedding dress chosen, the next step is setting a timeline for wedding dress alterations.

Rienzi Bridal Salon in Vineland, New Jersey, has you covered. The bridal salon sells wedding dresses and offers alterations to any dresses that they sell to ensure the wedding dress fits you perfectly. They are here to guide you, and other brides, on setting a timeline for alterations.

Timeline for Wedding Dress Alterations

1.    6 to 12 Months

Select your dress.

2.    12 to 8 Weeks

Routine alterations and first fittings.

3.    3 to 4 Weeks

By this time, you should have picked and bought your accessories to go with your wedding dress. Also, you should be planning your second or final wedding dress fitting.

4.    2 to 3 Weeks

Schedule the final fitting so that your wedding dress fits you perfectly.

5.    1 to 2 Weeks

Pick up your completed and fully-fitted dress.

You should remember that the number of alterations depends on the style of wedding dress you choose for your big day.

How to Set Your Budget for Wedding Dress Shopping?

Set the budget for your wedding dress after you have figured out the budget for your wedding. Decide on how much you plan to spend on your wedding dress. Include the cost of the wedding dress, taxes, alterations, and shipping if applicable. You should also set aside the budget for accessories, such as shoes, veil, and jewelry.

Start searching for a wedding dress at least four to five months before your wedding. Take your close family members and friends with you to shop for your wedding dress and have them provide feedback, and even take photos to show you what you look like in the dress.

Your perfect wedding dress is waiting for you at Rienzi Bridal Salon in Vineland, New Jersey. Select your wedding dress and schedule your wedding dress alterations by setting and following a timeline to ensure your wedding planning goes off without a hitch with these experts.
