Support needed… trying on dress tomorrow – know it won't fit…

I would just take a deep breath. If it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t fit — you still have plenty of time to lose three inches off your waist.

Haven’t gotten my dress yet, but I can’t imagine that the bridal salon will say anything at all. The things they must see every day. Just go in with an easy going mind and know that everything will be okay, even if it’s not tomorrow.

@future_mrs_m:  Just relax 🙂 It is anxiety and if it doesn’t fit then they should be professional or leave a complaint. I would just relax because you have time for both alterations AND time to lose weight 🙂

My dress came in last week, and when I called to schedule my first fitting the lady on the phone asked why I wanted to schedule it so far out (I was asking about a late October fitting). My voice kind of wavered when I answered that I knew it wouldn’t fit if I came in earlier.

“Oh honey,” she said. “Just take a deep breath. We’ve got two very talented seamstresses here, and no matter what, we’re going to make it work.”

She then went on and on about how they see this all the time, and listed out all the options I have for alterations (adding a corset back, putting in panels if necessary, etc). My point is– try not to be so anxious! They are professionals, they’ve seen it all before, and it will all work out. Your date is a little further out than mine, and you have the time to whittle some more off your waist. They will have other options for you to consider as well. But most important to keep in mind, time definitely HAS NOT run out! 🙂

@future_mrs_m:  Good luck sweetie!  It will all work out ok!  I didn’t go through it personally, but my sister did.  She wound up getting the dress let out, and it looked fabulous.  

Just a note from someone who is also shedding for the wedding – my trainer has urged me not to do oblique/side ab work because it can wind up adding inches to your side.

They never fit on the first fitting. No worries. I got my dress and I’m freaking swimming in it and it looks so stupid, haha! Once they are done it will fit perfect, I’m guessing:D
