Order the dress in the size you currently are and alter it if need be.  Do NOT order down with the intent of losing weight.

Buy the size you are now.  If it needs to be taken in later, great.

I would get the size you currently are. I think ordering it in a size smaller will add on extra pressure and stress to an already stressful time. I have always been self conscious about my body and even after losing weight with WW I still have those feelings. But honestly after trying on my wedding gown I don’t really think about it, it makes me feel pretty and makes the negative thoughts go away. You will look beautiful, don’t worry about it. And good luck with WW, it’s a great program 🙂

By the dress in the size you are. Most dresses can come in more than 2 sizes anyway. That 2 sizes thing is conservative and matters more the smaller the dress is. I was a 12 when I got my dress and had to order an 18. I didn’t even care about the number. I had significant alterations to take it in a the hips because those are narrow and the girls are ample. No problem. The first time I got married, I had to order a 22 and was a 14, sometimes 16. I then lost almsot 20 lbs. Again, not a problem to have ti taken in despite significant applique and beadwork.

I’m was a size 14 bride, and I felt gorgeous.  These dresses really are miracle workers.  Please don’t order down a size, it will totally stress you out!

i ordered my dress at davids bridal and i fit into a 16W and I thought i looked gorgeous. Im planning on losing weight too. Just imagine if you order it in your current size how good you will feel when you put the dress on and it’s big
