If you need to lose 3 inches, I would say it wouldn’t work.  Planning a wedding on a short timeframe is stressful enough without having a dress that doesn’t fit.

If you do buy it, keep in mind that it isn’t always easy to sell a dress, and that money will be tied up in a dress you can’t wear rather than being available to buy a dress you can wear. Plus, I don’t get the impression you love that dress.  Check out some of the other used wedding dress sites.

I am going to agree with Loribeth.  Three inches is a lot in that short of time.  Trying to match the fabric would be almost impossible.  She is right, re-selling a dress is difficult–I’ve had mine for sale for months.  In addition to the sites she listed, check out Craigslist, local consignment shops and local bridal shops for sample sales.  If you have a David’s Bridal local, they often have $99 dress sales (also check on-line).  Even unadvertised, they usually have a number of sale dresses in their store.
