8-12 weeks before your first fitting you will receive an email or text from Kleinfeld that it’s time to schedule your first fitting.
During your fitting, you’ll first try on your wedding dress. Remember, your dress was ordered according to the largest measurement (between hips, bust and waist) therefore it will likely NOT fit properly right away. At the first appointment we’ll pin the dress in all of the right places so our seamstresses will start customizing your dress to your body!
What to Expect: This appointment will take about an hour. Keep in mind that’s about an hour of standing in your dress and shoes while it’s being pinned by a seamstress. So please be prepared. Many brides insist on coming to their fitting on an empty stomach—we DO NOT advise this.
At the end of your first fitting, you should be prepared to book your second fitting appointment. Your fitter will suggest some dates and you should also have a few dates in mind.
Pro Tip from Alterations Manager Tina: “Be patient with the process. We find that brides tend to overthink between the first and second fitting. Kleinfeld’s alterations staff is sort of like having your own Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother. But unfortunately alterations take a little longer than a point of a magic wand,”
