I think that you should go in and see how it fits you around your waist and see where you are in terms of weight loss.  The idea of it is probably way more than you actually think!  I would go and try it on so that you can have a tangible idea of what you need to do.


Good luck! 🙂

Aww hugs. I think you should face the dress and get an idea of where you stand based on the fit. That just may be the extra motivation you need to kick it in high gear. Take a pic of you in the dress even and use that a visual to keep you on track.

I think it’s a good idea to go in and try the dress on.  If it doesn’t fit, then just have then reschedule an appointment for another day.  But I was in the same boat as you.  My fitting was over the weekend and I was TERRIFIED that it wouldn’t fit because I too have been stressed and eating like MAD and not exercising.  But the dress went on, it zipped, and it needed to be taken in.  So you may just be feeling worse then your possible weight gain may actually be.But there’s only one way to find out…go in and try it on.  Good luck!

i agree and say that you should go now – you might be pleasantly surprised – and if not, you have time to deal with it.  my tailor isn’t taking the sides in until the two weeks before the wedding since he sees brides go up and down so much before their wedding (and with a strapless dress, it better not be too big) so even though i have had two fittings (one for the bust area and another for the hem/bustle) and he barely even pinned in the sides so far

Yes! you should go now to see how far you are from the fit you want. 

I think you totally need this to motivate you,

Definately go. That way they can get the length taken care of and as PP have said it will show you exactly where you need to be.
