OK, I had this same exact problem with one of my bridesmaid dresses, but with a lot more time left.

Ask your tailor / seamstress if they can alter it to have a corset (tie-up) back instead of a zipper. That’s what we did, and it looks great.

Good luck!

I had this problem with a bridesmaid dress I wore last summer. It fit perfectly in the waist but was just too small in the chest. What we ended up doing (which isn’t ideal but is a quick fix) is adding some fabric that matched the dress under one of the arms in a V shape. It didn’t match perfectly, but since it was under my arm, no one ever saw it and it didn’t show up in the pictures.

I have heard that your bridal salon should (?) be able to get fabric directly from the manufacturer, so that they can so one of these fixes (add a panel or make the dress a lace-up) using fabric that is an exact match.  I would ask them and see what they say.
