So, Ladies. I tried on my dress again. My wedding is in 2 weeks and I wanted to see my accesories I bought with it all on together. Long story short I put on my strapless dress and I sat there practically swimming in it… I tried it on probably 6 weeks ago and it fit perfect and now its a freaking huge marshmellow! I started to freak out, so I jumped on the scale and I’m down a good 15 lbs. Now, I’m freaking out because alterations in 2 weeks, I think it can be done but damn thats gonna hurt the budget 🙁
…..But at the same time I wanna jump up and down because YAY I lost some weight (probably because I’ve been stress running). I really should be freaking out more, I think. But I’m so freaking happy about losing some pounds lol I knew my pants were fitting looser but I thought it was in my head. Its bittersweet because I don’t want to wear a big ole marshmellow down the aisle but I’m kinda like “its ok at least I’ll be a thinner marshmellow” is that bad? haha
Anyhoo, I need like 2-3 inches taken in, how long did your alterations take? How much were they? Anyone have to do last minute alters?

I had to have my dress re-altered just a few days before my wedding. I was lucky as I hadn’t picked up my dress from the shop where I bought it and originally had it altered. They did the second set of alterations for free and in less than 3 business days.

I won’t go into my whole dress disaster, but my wedding dress shop altered “my” dress (taken in) in 2 hours while I waited. And it had many layers. Really depends on how busy they are.

@livingthelifemommyandwife: I want that problem! haha! I am the heaviest I have ever been! Would love to lose 5-20 lbs! Even 5 would be good! more than 15 might not look as good on me. But maybe?

Firstly, yay you!!! Secondly my alterations place does not do the final alterations until 2 weeks before hand for this very reason. Apparently lots of brides lose weight due to stress so they do it as close as possible to the day to make sure it fits! You’ll be fine 🙂
