Don’t stress out about exercising/dieting…just maintain your weight and you will be fine 🙂

If you don’t mind me asking- where is it feeling tight exactly? Bust, waist, or hips? Or all of the above?

Some clever alterations can help a lot if you are nervous! My dress is tight right now in the bust, but the waist and hips are fine. 

I am following this bee’s advice to get the bust adjusted without having the whole top of the dress let out. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/fix-armpit-fat-and-back-fat-with-dress-alterations-not-exercise

Mine is…but it it’s any looser it would be too big. i think over the next couple of mos I’ll try to lose 5-6 lbs because usually my weight will flux within 5 lbs (depending on eating) so I’d want to make sure that the high end is what I weight now.

You could have her let it out if you’re worried but if you’re the type of person who can crack down and loose weight within a couple of weeks then you are probably fine with it fitting how it does now.

I have the same issue! Mine JUST does up…but its on the tight side…I have my first fitting tonight and while I’m trying my hardest to be mindful of my eating, I might break down and have it let out a bit – if anything it will ease my mind/stress!

See, this is why I got a corset back … ha ha.

I think you’ll be OK without dieting, as long as you keep up a regular healthy routine. I lost about 5 lbs in the last couple weeks before the wedding without even trying (due to stress, I guess). That’s never happened before and I doubt it’ll happen ever again!

What are you wearing underneath? A corset bra could do the trick even if you gain a few pounds.

Depending on the material, a little tightness may be a good thing. My silk dress started to stretch a little bit due to the high humidity on the day of our wedding. D’oh!

I had my first fitting last night.  My dress is tight – which is the design and why I chose it.  However, I could NOT sit down!  OMG!  She is letting out just 1/2″ on the sides between the hips and knees so I can sit.  But any more than that and the dress will appear too big.  Yikes.  I do not diet but I am going to have to really watch what I eat in the next 30 days.  My mom did say I will probably drop a few pounds before the wedding from stress and being on the go – but I can’t count on that.  I can’t stand up to eat dinner at my reception.  🙂

I am currently in the situation where I DID gain a few pounds, but I am getting better at eating healthy and exercising.

If worse comes to worst the seamstress can let out the dress. Don’t worry it really isn’t a big deal, they do this allll the time.

Most people I know lost weight in the few weeks before the wedding – whether intentionally or not. Most brides are so busy that they’re running around and not getting as much chance to eat. Plus stress can take weight off too. I think you’ll be fine if you just stick with what you’re doing now.
