I would definitely try it on to relieve any worries.  One less thing for you to stress about.  Do you have a scale at home?  Can you weigh yourself every morning at the same time so you can catch any major fluctuations?

P.S.  I can’t gain a pound in mine either or else I won’t be able to breath.  So, you are not alone in that problem if that helps any.

If I were you, I’d buy a scale.  You can get a really cheap one if it’s not something that you’ll really want after the wedding – this way you can weigh yourself every day.  Honestly, small weight fluctuations are totally normal, especially for women, so you’re going to see your weight going up and down depending on time of day, what you ate etc.   I think that being able to track it is going to make you feel better and if you can relax about it you’re less likely to lose more weight!

As for the other, try really hard not to try it on, IMO.  It’s packed all nicely etc,   

Good luck and enjoy your wedding!

ETA: when I said not to try it on, I guess I was assuming that it is too late to fix it, but if that’s not the case then totally try it on to make sure!

If it will make you feel better, I say try it on every day until your wedding!  After a little while I think you’ll start to feel more peace of mind about it.  Plus if it’s too tight, once you wear it for a little the fabric will start to stretch a bit… I wouldn’t worry, a pound or two won’t make a huge difference.

If it is that tight, I think you might want to get it taken out a bit.  You don’t want to be uncomfortable in it and dresses that are too tight are less flattering to your body (you could get the underarm pooge or smooshed up boobs not in a good way).  Try it on when you get it and if it doesn’t fit well, take it to a seamstress immediately.
