i think the dress you ordered will likely be a little big, and you will just need to make alterations a priority! if you will have the dress for a month, you should have time to have the alterations done!

congrats on your weight loss!!!

I’m not sure what style of dress you picked, so it’s hard to say for sure, but just about every dress requires SOME alterations.  If you picked a strapless mermaid dress with a zip back, I can almost guarantee that you’ll need alterations.  If you picked an A line corset back, they’re a little more flexible on size.  Regardless, the dress will need to be hemmed unless you’re very tall.  A month should be plenty of time to take in a little bit and get the hem properly done.   I’d talk to some tailors in your area, see if they’re experienced in wedding alterations.  If you can, show them pictures of the dress.  That will give them an idea of how much work is involved in taking it in and anything else you may need done.

@leecy87:  Heels will help to SOME extent if it’s too long, but do you really want to choose your shoes at the last minute based solely on heel height?  It makes more sense to pick the shoe, and hem the dress accordingly.  Realistically, unless the dress fit like a perfect glove when you purchased it (which it didn’t) and your weight didn’t drop an ounce (which it did), you were going to need alterations with that style.  It shouldn’t be anything too major though, and I really don’t think you’ll have problems with the timeline.

And congrats on your weight loss!  A few alterations with the dress will help it show off your new figure even more, and it’ll be just that much more flattering.
