    I’d do it now.  They can always take it in if necessary.

    Dresses can take up to six months to order in keep that in mind.  I had no idea that it would take that long by the time I went dress shopping I had to select one off the rack.  Not that I’m complaining my dress is beautiful!!

    The boutique that I bought my dress from said that you can take up to four sizes off your dress without ruining the “intergrity” of the dress.  Im no alterations specialist – but Im sure they would know since they sell thousands of dresses!

    15-20 pounds is a pretty simple alteration for a great seamstress.  You can pull the trigger now with no problem!

    I’m on a mission to lose maybe 30lb before my wedding next October (11lb already gone!) but I’ve already bought my dress! I put down the deposit to secure it so I wouldn’t have to worry,but my fitting measurements aren’t being taken until Jan to account for weight loss.
