I’m 5’2.5″ and was 140lbs on my wedding day – I think I looked great, I could stand to lose a few pounds but I felt and looked beautiful on my wedding day.

I am 5’2 and was about 135 on the wedding day! That is one of my heavier weights ever (post major knee surgery) but I am happy with photos. A few are unflattering. No big!

πŸ™‚ I was 148lbs and I’m 5’2″ when this picture was taken.  The dress was also a size too small but we zipped the darn thing up and I squeezed in.


I think you’re going to look great no matter what! What kind of dress do you have/are you loking for?

I’m a little over five feet tall as well, and I am in the upper 150’s right now. I am trying to get a handle on it to be healthier in general, but it isn’t easy. It is a challenge every day to make good choices! I feel good in my dress though. I have a little time to get some weight off before the big day in June. I come from a short and stocky family, so I know that part of it is just how I am built.

HippyBunniesinLove:  I am sure you will look absolutely beautiful on your wedding day whether you lose it or not! Keep at it, and you’ll reach your goals in a healthy way. Everyone in this thread looks amazing, so that gives me hope too!

I’m 5’0 and about 145 right now. This is the heaviest I’ve ever been and I plan on getting down to about 115 before our wedding next May. But here I am in my dress, which the bees said was unflattering on me, but I still love it.
