Can you tell what kind of stains are on the dress?  It may help figure out if there’s a way to get them out. 

Does your ring fit your pinky finger?  Perhaps if it’s weight gain that is temporary – due to medicine or stress, it won’t be worth it to have it resized.  And maybe just get a cheaper sterling silver one for temporary for your ring finger,

Sorry things are so frustrating right now when all you want to do is have a beautiful celebration of a great couple.  But honestly, I’d rather go to a wedding that’s homey  where there’s real genuine love than a super fancy shindig where you feel like all they wanted was a wedding.  Try and stay positive even with the world crumbling, it sounds like you have a relationship worth celebrating.

I am sure your weight will return to normal once your thyroid medication kicks in, so I would hold off from resizing it only to have to resize it again.  You could put it on your pinkie, or borrow one that fits for the ceremony?

Can you go to the dry cleaner and ask if the stain will come out?  Get an estimate of the cleaning costs, and I will chip in.  I feel terrible that you will not have dress on your special day; that breaks my heart.  PM your address, and I will send you a check.

As for the friends that can’t attend, the most important person, your Fiance, will be there and that’s all that matters.

omg about that pastor! Some nerve he has. *hugs*

I’m sure your weight will be normal again once your body gets used to the meds. That happened to a friend of mine and she is back to how she was before. Just took a bit. That’s all.

Could you use a fake for the ceremony? Or maybe use another figer or even have him put it on a necklace or something?

I think she gave you some good advice regarding the ring.  I would go to a dry cleaners and see if they can help with the stains and tear.  I would also disregard the pastor’s comment.  My brother and my now SIL went thru the marriage class at church and they told them they couldn’t live together.  They kindly told them they had no choice but to live together but that they respected their views.  They still attend the church and are now married.  No hard feelings.  The part that bothers me are your friends.  I can’t believe they’d pick a cook-out over someones wedding.  I would have to let them know that I am disappointed in their decision.  But then I would say their loss… and invite someone else instead!

Cheer up this will all be here soon and you’ll have a blast on your big day!

Is there any way to make “pick ups” to hide the stains?  A friend of mine got married in a dress that was brand new . . . but somehow right before she was supposed to put it on for her wedding, it was covered in black spots.  We pinned the dress in some spots to look like natural folds in the dress and used powder stain remover to try to cover up the stains.  After the wedding, we asked other guests (girls of course who were close friends) if they noticed.  No one did!  They were all focued on the joy in her face, not in the bottom of her dress.

Take a deep breath!  You’ll be a beautiful bride.

Is there an area on the dress that you could test a stain-remover on? like a layer that isn’t visible when you are wearing it?  I would honestly just try some Woolite and make sure it doesn’t ruin the fabric, and then see if it can help remove the stain.   It is the most gentle detergent out there!  Otherwise, you could also try the same with a stain remover like Shout.  I know this all feels impossible now, but I have been very impressed at how easily stains that looked impossible have come out of some of my clothes!

Good luck with everything!  I know it will all work out!

try some oxiclean! I bet you could get it relatively clean on your own! And I doubt anybody will really think much of it. Could you dye the dress in a bucket outside? Sounds silly and risky but i bet it could be done. perhaps you’d like a soft pale gold or something? =]

There are some online tutorials on cleaning your dress yourself in the washer.  I’d check into that before anything else.
