Hm. What kind of dress is it? Do you have pics? Could you add a corset back which would give you more room to let it out? Or maybe you could add a cute bolero or shawl?

I’d say talk with your tailor. Maybe she will have some suggestions. You’ve still got over a month before the big day so there’s time for more alterations.

And don’t go the crash diet route. You’ve got enough stress already. And they aren’t reliable or healthy.

I ordered my Bridesmaid or Best Man dress 2 sizes smaller in hopes that I’d lose weight in time but instead of losing I gained a few pounds from when I acutally ordered the dress!  Seamstress said I needed an extra 3 inches in order to zip it closed.  She was able to let the dress out which then made the chest area huge so she had to take it in around the bust.  The dress overall fit but wasn’t perfect.  Next time I’ll know better!  I sugest ordering your true size.  Much better to take a dress in then to take a dress out.
