I would say no. Every bridal store I have been too have said that they can make a size 20 dress fit a size 6 bride. So you should be fine if you drop some sizes.

I think you’re going to spend more on alterations than you did for the dress if you’re going down a bunch.  Depending on when yand where ou get married you might want a completely different dress anyway.  I wouldn’t worry about it too much for now and just see what happens when you settle on a time/place.

I’d ask a tailor/seamstress about how much it would cost if you’re just looking at price comparison, and remember that a new dress would most likely need at the very least basic alterations. My hunch is that it’s better to stay with the dress you have =)

@s.renea9:  I hate that I am the only one bringing this up…but…(and I’ll say this as sincerely and not judgmental as I possibly can)  if you continue to lose weight for no reason, there could be an issue that needs to be addressed with a doctor. 

I’m sending healthy vibes your way, but if it continues, I would be worried.  While yes it is awesome to lose weight without trying.  Even the PP said they wish they had your problem.  BUT there also could be something going on.

Just wanted to look out for the bees.  Sorry If I overstepped any boundaries.

like some PP’s suggested i’d check with a seamstress.  i’ve worked in a bridal salon and while it is possible to take a size 20 to a size 6 not only would it cost a buttload but it would also change possibly the whole design of the dress.  if you lose enough weight i’d consider selling the one you have already and trying to find another good deal.
