I literally tried on my gown Saturday, and it fit like a glove. Today was the final fitting, and it was so tight! I had major back-fat. Anyone know what to do for severe water retention? I don’t want it being this tight on the big day! I don’t have time to get it let out- had to ship it today at latest to get back home in time for the wedding (flying back east for wedding).
I seriously was so swollen and bloated today! It freaked me out… But she did not touch the seams, it was just finishing the bustle! 🙁

Have you been eating salt? Hormones fluctuating? Drinking water?
Where are you bloating? All over? In the stomach?

It seemed all over. i’m on the pill. I had just had broccoli cheese soup from Quiznos right before, but the amount of bloating was just so drastic! I muffined up on top and it was really tight in the whole torso. 🙁

I would suggest reducing your salt intake and drink plenty of water. You could also try taking baby aspirin until your wedding…..it helps reduce bloating.

@msfuturea: I second this. Reduce any amount of coffee or tea you may be drinking as well.

If it’s all over you may notice it in your fingers, ankles, and elsewhere. I second the limit salt intake, gassy foods, and up your water intake. Also, make sure that you have a healthy balance of gut bacteria if you notice stomach issues. Perhaps some nice sweating in a steam room/sauna will help too.
Keep yourself moving too. 🙂

I made the mistake of eating a lot of fruit and veggies the night before my wedding and woke up feeling like an overinflated balloon! I drank peppermint tea and a diuretic, seemed to help! Good luck!
