Could a triangular piece of red fabric (same as the red fabric on the dress) be temporarily sewn in underneath (behind where you lace the corset) to give you more room? I’m thinking the lacing will hide the extra piece of fabric.

I agree with the previous poster… luckily with the ribbon you can hardly tell so that could be a quick fix. Also, are you waering a bra? My dress wouldn’t zipper with a bra but then magically fit perfectly when I took it off.

Spanx work, but they won’t cut 3 pr 4 inches. Mostly, they smooth you out and hug some, and if they are so tight at your waist that they take in that much, you will bubble over at midback, and that is not attractive. I would pair Spanz with diet and exercise. You have plenty of time to drop a dress size or two, but stressing out will make weight loss harder. I’d start doing some strength training to boost your metabolism and then some good cardio at 45-60 min 3-4 times per week. Then start tracking your calories (I recommend Daily Plate on Livestrong.com–it’s free and easy) and make sure you are consuming betweeh 1200 and 1600 calories per day, more when you exercise, so that you always take in a net of 1200 minimum or you will go into starvation mode and horde every calorie.
You have plenty of time! Don’t worry about it; just take care of it.

go see a good seamstress and tell them your situation and see if there is something they can do to temporarily alter the dress.
i know some bridal shapeware can take away about an inch or so. i’m wearing le mystere brand bridal bustier. i can’t stand spanx but this bra is very comfortable.
