    I’m not sure about the alterations…. but your niece was right!  You look absolutely stunning in your dress.  🙂

    My best advice would be to look at your weight over the last few years and to trust your body because you are the one that knows it best.

    Personally if I needed alterations I would have been confindent in doing them early since my weight has remained the same for as long as I can remember. I’m still able to fit into cloths from years ago. If you have a similar situation I wouldn’t worry too much about getting some done now, just know it’s easier to make the dress smaller than to take out alterations.

    I would wait. Going abroad that long can do a lot to your body. Def. watch what you eat… but it could be a “good” or a “bad” change. lol. I personally gained a lot of weight abroad over a semester… but drank a lot and ate a lot of breads, choch, and potatoes. I was however in Austria 🙂 My parents live in London now and I usually loose weight when I go for a month… I’m also close to your “build”

    Do you already have a seamstress that will be doing the alterations? because then you can ask them how much time they need to get it done. Some places say they need 4-6weeks and some places need much less time. If it only takes them 4-6 weeks to complete it then you can get the alterations done at the start of the year In January..
