- Wedding: April 2013
I’m getting married in less than 11 weeks…my dress is a UK 14 (US 10) I bought it in a sample sale as I left it so late to get my dress as I’ve been dieting all year and have lost 35lbs! even though the dress looked fab in the mirror when I took it home and tried it on again my mum took a photograph and when I saw it I felt like I just looked like a fat hippo!! I’m so conscious about my arms! 🙁 I know lots of people will say that my size is not huge but I was a size 8 (US 4) before I had my little boy 2 years ago and I have never been this big before and especially for my wedding day! I’ve been dieting all year but have been slacking since Christmas I haven’t put on any weight but I was hoping to lose another stone before the wedding but I can’t see that happening now with it being so close to the wedding plus I would have to have alterations done which to be fair I haven’t got enough money left in the budget for!
Would love to see pictures of other brides the same size looking amazing in their dress! Anybody have any tips of how to look slimmer? I was thinking to have a spray tan, and I’ve got very long hair so any hairstyles? how to pose for pics to look slimmer? would be great help thanks x
