Why dont you wait and order the dress  in January of 2013 by then you’ll have 7 months to go to the wedding and you’ll have a better idea of what size you will be by the wedding date.

My Cousin was in the same situation and ordered her dress two sizes smaller than she was at the time she ordered because she was determined to lose the weight. When it arrived she was actually smaller than the dress and they altered it. Its totally possible, depending on the style of dress. You kind of need to imagine the dress you want and see if they tore off three or 4 inches from the zipper line and stitched it back together how would it look.


Either way, congrats on loosing the weight, that is a great achievement, you should be proud!

I think it all depends on the complexity of a dress as to how reasonable it would be to alter. I would definitely recommend going with a corset if you like that style, they can easily be adjusting a size or two without difficult alterations just by lacing.
