I think I would go with the bigger size and if she does get in shape, that is great! yay for her! and she can get it taking in…but I def. wouldn’t want her flaunting her goods in a smaller dress in my wedding in front of all my family and others..

How long does the dress take to get in? maybe give her a month to get in shape and than order her dress? Compromise? I don’t know…just suggesting cuz two months is a short time for ordering dresses and working out..Or maybe give her a week and see if she does start doing what she said she will and than order the dress…atleast show she is committed…that way it’s not like a crash diet the week before the wedding..

How can she be sure that she’s even going to look good in the size 2?  Geez. 

She should pay for alterations.  It’s not your fault if she does/does not gain weight.  As a side note, in the two weddings that I have been in, I had to pay for the dresses and alterations.

I agree.  I was on the other side for a wedding last year – I bought a 4 hoping to lose wt and didn’t.  While the cleavage wasn’t excessive, the 6 would have been much more comfortable.  According to Nicole from Kleinfeld who measured me for my dress, only about 50% of brides lose wt for the wedding.  The number of bridesmaids is likely much fewer who lose the weight. 

Tell her to return the 2, if she loses the weight she can always have it altered.  =)
