Oh hon…this is not a happy story.  Sorry to hear about it.  Well I am with you that Option 1 isn’t an Option…I am kind of shocked that it was given to you as an option.  I am with you 100% you buy what fits you, you are perfect the way you are.  I would go try on the new dress, and see how you feel (you never know you might have a second moment of triumph).  If you don’t feel 100% in it, don’t go for it.  Keep looking.  Try searching online for your dress by name and terms similar and plus size, and see what pops up.  Maybe there is something out there that is 99.9% exactly the same and will make you just as happy.

Is there any way that you can order the largest size she does sell and find matching fabric to alter is and ‘make it fit’ that way, while trying consciously to make healthy choices and maybe slim down a bit? I’m so sorry! What about finding a seamstress who can make the dress for you?

Do not force yourself to lose a ton of weight to fit into your wedding dress. You’re going to stress yourself out so much that you won’t be able to do it. You owe it to yourself to treat your body with more respect than that.

That being said, don’t give up yet either. Can you take a picture of the dress to a seamstress to have it custom-made in your size? Can you get a seamstress to look at the dress in the store to see if it can be altered to fit you?

Also, the similar dress that the consultant ordered might be just as wonderful. I know this is a really sucky situation, but it’s going to work out in the end and you’ll have an awesome dress. Keep your chin up!

Im so glad everythign worked out for you! It was very nice of the bridal shop to go out of their way to make you happy when you read so many other horror stories of bridal stores on the internet. Be sure you leave them a nice review and send a thank you note if you thought their service was exceptional!
