So when my sister got married my Grandma made a big deal about how it was better that my Daddy (yes, my father) sewed the dress for her because she was too short and if would not of fit her yet anyway. I would of fit that dress when my Grandmother said it, but alas and alack that was when I was 5’9″ and 140, really skinny, now I am 5’9″ and 200lbs and it would mean the world to my grandmother if I wore it. So here it begins, I have a 2 year engagement so I figure that means I have a year to figure out if I can lose 1lb a week, 52 weeks in a year, TADA! I would fit it, and if in a year I am not successful (or at least close) I will have my Dad sew my wedding dress as well. But still stress man, why did my Grandmother and my Mother (who also wore the dress) have to be so damn thin! Rant over…gym tonight.

My mom was thin when she got married. She is now a little chubby (like me).

Would she be okay with you taking some part of the dress and modifying it? If your dad is such an excellent seamster (is that the word?), would she trust him to do this?
Not saying you shouldn’t strive to be healthy, but dresses can be altered relatively easily, and it would be unfortunate if you stressed over this.

Couldn’t have said it better. Do what you can to adopt a healthier lifestyle through better eating and more activity but DON’T stress yourself out over having to fit into that dress. Alterations are a part of wedded bliss! Besides the dress might look better with a bit of curves in it. 😉
