Why would they want to see you 5 months before your wedding?  That sounds like a huge amount of time.  Last year, before we moved our wedding back, I did mine two months out for the first and the last was scheduled only a week out.  I would call and ask them about the timing.

@vicozzie:  I know exactly what you mean.  I ordered my dress 2 months ago, and said I still was planning to lose 15lbs before the wedding because that’s been my goal weight forever.  I’ve lost like 1lb in 2 months.  I still have tons of time, but still, I better get on it too.  Luckily you still have a good amount of time until December.  Don’t stress too much!  That can affect weight too.  🙂

Oh, and I bought the 30 day shred.  I did it for 10 minutes and thought I was going to die!!!  So hard!  Before I started it, I thought, “Oh, I’ve been doing p90x for months. This will be so easy.”  Yeah right!  It was ridiculous!

I don’t know, I kind of agree, 5 months sounds like a long amount of time for your first fitting.. I had my dress paid for over two years before my wedding, and I just had my first fitting yesterday, and I’m three months out.. If you’re planning on losing weight, I would think that waiting an extra couple of months wouldn’t crunch time in any way, it would give you some extra time, and you wouldn’t have to pay ridiculous amounts of money in alterations if you do end up losing a bunch of weight.. You do have plenty of time though, just get into a routine and stick with it, and you’ll be fine 🙂

Oh man can I relate!  I lost a bunch of weight before I even went dress shopping.  I ordered my dress in April.  Since then, I’ve put most of the weight back on, and I’m not looking forward to the call that my dress is in! I too, have enough time, I’m just disappointed that I’m not super exited for that call!

@vicozzie: If you can do girly pushups and jumping jacks you’ll be fine! It will kick your ass the first few times you do it though, no matter what size you are!
