- Wedding: July 2016 - Chateau
So I tried on my dress for the first time and put a down payment on it in February (around Feb). I got it then because it was the only boutique in FRANCE that I could find that carried tthis dress!! (Lillian West 6310) and they had only borrowed in from Holland and were sending it back that day. So I tried it on, loved it and bought it.
Fast forward a few months and I have already lost 6 kilos (I think thats like 13 pounds) and hopefully I will lose more. The dress lady took my alterations which she said would be as if I lose 4 kilos so at least thats something, but what if I lose another 10!
My mom says to call up the dress shop, put my dress on hold and get re-measured later (Im not in a hurry, my wedding is in 2016). Its annoying me a little because the dress shop is 2 hours away (and I dont know of any seamstresses where i live) but would it be better to get the new size while theyre making the dress? Or just alter it when its here? I hate making fusses for people haha (and speaking french on the phone )
Has anyone here done this? Did anyone lose a lot of weight before their first fitting and the dress had to be altered alot?
