Take it out.  You want to be able to enjoy the last 11 days before you go through the whirlwind of the wedding day.

No crazy crash diet necessary. If it is only slightly too tight, just AVOID SALT! salt bloats you and can temporarily add a size or two. Drink tons and tons of water and don’t eat anything fried or salty for the next 11 days

What a sweet fiance! I think taking your dress out an inch would be the best option and then you won’t be stressing until your wedding day!

@anonymous678:  Awww good job FI!  Ok, DB sounds like THE WORST!

Hugs date twin.

If you really think you’re bloated from your Bach party give it a day or two if you can then if it still doesn’t fit best to let it out.

THIS is why I got a corset, my weight fluctuates a ton and I’m currently over the weight I was when I purchased my dress.

@anonymous678:  Also along with my salt comment, sometimes food can have a ton of sodium in it and not actually taste salty at all, like soda! Check nutrition labels and make sure you cut back as much sodium as you can. Good luck!

I would probably take it out.

However…. if it’s barely too tight, drink loooooooooots of water and follow the 3 day military diet.  I lost significant weight before doing this before a big event.  Not sustainable weight, mind you, just enough to look and feel better before a biggie. Or sometimes I do it to jump start a diet.


And I DO NOT eat the weenies on day two.  Just repeat another days dinner.  Just cause I hate sausages. 

Disregard if you want and just take out the inch!
