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. 😉
