AWw, I’m sorry to hear that 🙁 But the bright side is that now you don’t need to worry about it being too small so all that stress is taken off your shoulders. Maybe without that stress, you can be more focused on eating right and working out because you WANT to, not because you have to.

And my dress was about 2 sizes too small for me when it finally came in 3 weeks before my wedding. It wasn’t because I had gained weight, I had actually lost almost 10 lbs since it I was measured for it. The stupid dress shop got the measurements wrong and kept pushing the date back for it to arrive. It was the biggest nightmare of my wedding, I can’t even express how stressful it is to have a dress be too small. They did end up being able to take it out enough, thankfully partially because I had lost so much weight.

I can see why this would be a bummer and stressful. I’m sorry you had to deal with that, but for the benefit of a happy bride and a beautiful bride, you can count on a perfect fit the day of the wedding. Hey, isn’t that what the fitting is for!? You are going to look gorgeous. No one will know you gained an inch or two (except you) what they will notice is how gorgeous you are in a flawlessly-fitted dress!

=) Keep your chin up (it makes your face look thinner!) Lol.Tongue out

Hey, I bet your Fiance loves you for you… and that’s what matters!  I understand your disappointment but you will be a beautiful bride no matter what!

When I found my dress- I measured to be a mix of sizes top to bottom 8, 10, 12.  We ordered a size 10.  The dress I tried was 8 and obviously too small but still looked amazing.  When my size 10 dress came in, i went for my first fitting and it was tight….too tight to be comfortable and feel good about it.  One of the worst parts is that i took 6 or 7 people with me, and when i walked out of the fitting room, NOONE SAID ANYTHING! It was humiliating and i felt so sad.  (i had been so excited for that day) After leaving the shop i was ready to go home and be done with that day.  I told my Fiance and he’s been nothing but supportive.  We’ve started working out and eating better, and i’ve lost 10 lbs so far, and need to keep going. 

Like LADYSUNSHINE, my wedding is 10/9/10.  My final fitting is tomorrow.  I’m nervous, but i think 10lbs is enough to make a difference.  Let’s hope i’m right!

You just have to remember that at the end of the day- your weight isn’t what matters.  You’ll get where you need to be and you’ll feel better and more confident.  You can do it!  and you’re right….all you can do is hope for the best and try your hardest 🙂
