i ordered a corset back dress and it fit almost perfectly.  Best thing is if I should fluctuate in weight at all the dress can just be tied tighter or looser as needed and won’t need any alterations.  Alot of designers will let you order your dress at the correct length for and extra fee.  I’d say take a long weekend somewhere, have fun trying things on and order the dress to fit you. (make sure you have shoes with you) That way you know what your getting and you won’t have to worry about alterations.

I had a very stressful, overwhelming first shopping experience. I wasn’t finding what I was looking for and had a lot of opinions being thrown at me. I was also hesitant to keep shopping. My wedding was more than a year away, so I took some time off and looked around online. I decided to go 3 months later with only my sister (MOH)… I found my dress immediately. First one I tried on! 

Try going into it with an open mind and bring only 1 or 2 people with you. Take photos if they will allow too… it helps when you get home to see it from a different perspective. I’m not familiar with ordering dresses online or couture dresses, so I can’t help you there. I’m sure whatever you decide will be beautiful. Just relax because you have plenty of time!

I feel your pain! But please don’t let this one experience rob you of something that should be a fabulous memory!  My husband and I both were downsized within months of each other last year.  My daughter wanted an Amsale dress and there was no way we could afford it as it was a major chunk of her wedding budget (we’re paying!)  But we had a phenominal expreience at an online store (they also have a real shop in Michigan, USA) and we got an inspired gown for her for less than $500.  I hope this helps and here’s the link to my daughters dress http://www.mybigfatbeautifulwedding.com/Liv-Ball-Gown-wedding-dress-p/m1103.htm when you live in a small town, sometimes going on line to a reputable place can give you the biggest selection.  Blessings!
