Yep, I lost 8 pounds over the two weeks before.  A sash solved my problem with my dress being too big in the waist.

Yes I lost about 7 pounds within the two weeks before my wedding. Thankfully I had a corset so the difference didn’t change the way my dress fit, I just had it laced tighter.

I gain when I’m stressed not lose…I gained 5 lbs in the few weeks leading up to the wedding. My dress was already at my parents so I scheduled one of those body wrap things thinking it wouldn’t fit, but it fit great

I probably lost 2-3 pounds in the 2-3 days before the wedding- mainly because I had schedued myself so tightly that I didn’t have time to eat!  

I had my last fitting just a week before the wedding and when they zipped it up it was really snug (I wanted it snug!)…so those last few pounds made me feel a little more comfortable without the dress becoming loose anywhere.

I did which a) surprised me and b) worked out really well. When I did my final fitting (about a month before the wedding) my dress was just a wee-bit too tight. The seamstress and I discussed it, and she said she wasn’t comfortable letting it out any because in her experience, brides nearly ALWAYS loose a bit of weight before their wedding. I’m glad I listened; I lost about 7-8 pounds and my dress ended up fitting perfectly! (and then I promptly gained that weight back post-wedding, dang it!)

Nope.  I havent really fluctuated more than 3-5 lbs since highschool.  I dont every see any physical difference either.  I also do get stressed easily and was not stressed about the wedding at all.

Yes, I lost weight before the wedding, including the week before, after my final alteration. My dress was a bit too loose as a result.

Yes, I lost about 8 lbs the week before the wedding. I tried really hard to eat well but I could tell I was dropping weight and then the 3-4 days before the wedding my anxiety was through the roof and I was unable to eat. My dress definitely felt bigger on me than it did when I had my last fitting but it had an inner corset so that kept it tight.

I’m a high stress person and tend to lose when I am highly stressed. I wasn’t about my wedding, so my weight stayed the same.

Yes, but I was trying. I didn’t have carbs and stopped drinking wine. I would just stop, breathe and take some time for yourself when you feel stressed. It’s not worth making yourself sick/ unhappy/stressed over

Heavens, no. I’m a fat kid who loves food and cookies and pizza are emotional blankies for me. I was my highest weight since losing a TON of weight 7 years ago on my wedding day. Oh well.
