I would go see a seamstress IMMEDIATELY and ask if you can get it taken in enough without losing the integrity of the dress. You’re running a little short on time so you really need to know ASAP if you need to get a new dress. 

Also? Congrats! That is amazing!

Congrats on the weight loss!  They should be able to take it in, but yeah, go asap!

Unless you’re like 4’11” 40 pounds shouldn’t be 4 sizes. I wouldn’t worry.

I lost 75 pounds and went down 5 sizes. I am quite tall though.

Why don’t you just go to a store and try on some clothes to see what size you are now?

Congratulations on the weight loss, that is awesome.

I agree with @CorgiTales: go see a seamstress now just incase there is nothing they can do with your current dress.
