Honestly…a Seamstress can do wonders to a dress. I plan on loosing at least 30 before my wedding…but i still bought a dress that would fit me right now.

Dont stress to much over it…you need to enjoy the shopping ๐Ÿ™‚

Have fun!

I’m trying to loose weight AFTER buying my dress, and I bought it the size I was then, not what I want to be. I’m a 12, and hoping to go down to a 10, maybe an 8, but I don’t want to loose too much weight.

I am! I’m a size 4, but short enough that I definitely have “problem zones” so I’m toning up and hoping to lose about 10 lbs. I went dress shopping with Future Sister-In-Law, and at one of the places she literally just had to change in front of us every time. In fact, we had to help her because the sales woman left us in there with the dresses for 45 minutes. In case something like that happens to me, I want to be proud of my body! 

Plus, I know that when I lose weight a lot of my clothes that were flattering before become kind of blah, and I start wearing different styles that flatter my “new” shape better.

I’m with the others.  Make sure you get a dress that fits you well now, but plan on losing after you pick your dress.

My wedding gown is a 12, but I am hoping for the first fitting to take ti down to a 10 or 8.

I bought a dress in September and bought it home in november and guess what. It didnt go all the way up! In two months I had put on weight. But needless to say, I tried it on again yesterday and it fits.. phew! bit snug tho. I am planning to loose a little bit more weight before I get it altered. .

The lady in the store says, some brides just loose weight before the wedding due to stress. =I have heard of people ordering a size lower than what they are to make them selves use that as a goal. Im not keen on this idea at all.

Each to their own tho!

Can i just recommend Dance Julianne- Cardio Ballroom Dancing?!?! you can get it on Amazon.com for like 8 bucks.. its an hour long super fun high energy dance dvd. the instructor (julianne hough from dancing with the starts) is adorable! I never even watched dancing with the stars before but bought it anway because amazon suggested it for me. Its great and it really targets your butt, abs, arms, legs, and everything else in between!!!!

 

Its freaking amazing… I don’t need to lose any weight for the wedding luckily, but I try to do it 2-3 times a weeks just to stay in shape and its AMAZING. I’ve lost like 4 lbs (which is a lot for me!!) without even trying. Plus the fiance loves watching me do it, haha he thinks its sexy!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ never hurts to make him happy either!

I’m so all about losing weight, but my dress is already sitting in my closet! He knows what my dress looks like, cause he’s seen a pic of the size 2 model in it! but i’m totally not a size 2! having two kids, kills that, lol. So i’m working my ass off, and in the past week i lost like 4 lbs, and thats considering i only worked out 2 days since i was sick the other 5, and still am sick. chasing after a 3 year old and a 1 year old with a fever is exercise right?

I’m putting off the shopping for a bit because I’m training for a 10k in May. I’m not actively trying to lose x number of pounds (too stressful for me) but I’m kinda guessing/hoping that kicking up my running regimen will cause me to shapeshift a little!

It really doesn’t matter.  You will most likely need the dress altered anyway so regardless if you lose 5 – 10 lbs now or after you buy the dress, it wont matter.

I had the same plan – but really, all the samples you try on will probably bigger than your size.  Once you get the dress on, you won’t care about the extra pounds.  Start looking ๐Ÿ™‚
