Default Bridesmaid dress for sisters wedding

http://www.alfredangelo.com/index.cf...0-DA77E21EBD65

here is the site for my bridesmaid dress. our's is going to be in burnt orange.

BUt my question is.... how long does it take to have a dress altered. the wedding is August 11th and I will be VERY VERY pregnant by then lol. I have ordered an extra yard of material to go with the dress for alterations. but I don't want to have it altered until I absolutely have to because I don't know how big I am gonna get or how fast I will grow.

anyone know how long it takes to alter it?

Cute dress. They can always start on the alternations early and adjust as needed.

I was thinking that but then I didn't want them to have to waste material because I don't know how much I will need by the final alteration hahaha.

*jaw drops* That is a beautiful dress...

Maybe you can estimate based on how big bellies get on average at the Xth month of your pregnancy, and then compare where yours is at the month you're at now.. if you're bigger or smaller, make the estimation bigger or smaller..?

Stunning !!! Did you order a size larger than you normally wear ??? I'd contact whomever you plan to use and ask them ....if you schedule a fitting 10 to 7 days before and they set aside the time now for you , you should be fine . It's a busy time for most so have them put it in their books now .

No puffy sleeves? It is gorgeous. I'd get married in it. Do you have to order it now? You have no idea how your body is goiing to change. Nobody does! Maybe you will just get a big belly or maybe you'll gain 60 lbs like my sis lol And your boobs! lol

Order it bigger, it's easier to alter down a size than to go up. Any real professional can have it done in a day...

the dress is already ordered....

I ordered one size larger and then ordered and extra yard of material so they can add to the side panels. The dress is very loose fitting and flowy in the body area.... it is only fitted in the chest. the dress maker lady said that ordering the extra material has been what has worked best for some of her past bridesmaids in the same situation.

So far I am almost in my sixth month and I have only gained 5 lbs lol. so hopefully I don't put on 40 lbs in two months that would probably not be very good for me or the baby lol.
