Buy the dress in the size you are when you try it on, and have it taken in. Do not order a smaller dress in a size that you want to be. I never lost all the weight I wanted, my dream dress did not fit, and could not be made to fit me for an affordable amount in alterations ( as in it was cheaper to buy a new dress ). It is easier and cheaper for a seamstress to take a dress in, than let one out or add in fabric.
As far as undergarments, most bridal salons will give you a bra to wear, as well as a slip. So you don’t need to worry about if your panties match. I would only wear spanx, if you have the intention of wearing them on your wedding day. Keep the style dress in mind. you may not need spanx.

aww thanks! I joined the forums and was scared of looking like a princess playing dress up, lol. I remember the accessories forum being brutal a yr back when it came to tiaras. Every other thread with them mentioned had responses of “you’re not a princess!”.
