I agree on going to the seamstress they should be able to get it done in time!

Look at it this way, it’s way better than being too small!  🙂

I agree with alterations as weight fluctuations are not healthy for you.

I’m an omnivore, but I did a quick search for high calorie vegan food and found this site – http://veg.ca/content/view/170/112/  It’s got a lot of good suggestions for high calorie stuff like pasta with pesto and pine nuts (loaded with oils) and avacados (all that healthy fat).

I’m no nutritionist, but I can’t imagine there’s a healthy way to pack on 10 lbs in 3 weeks…  I’d suggest a seamstress for the wedding, and then maybe talking to your doctor about if there’s a nutritionist you can meet with that’s covered by your health insurance to help out with the long term adjustment.  I know a lot of people have trouble when they first transition to a more restricted diet (vegan, kosher, gluten-free, etc) because so much of what we eat is out of habit or what we grew up with.  Because it’s not just getting the calories, it’s making sure those calories have the protein and vitamins and whatnot that you need.  I had several friends in high school go vegitarian, and their diet consisted mostly of french fries and cookies – even if they were getting 2000 calories a day, there’s no way that’s healthy!  Good luck!

A seamstress can definitely do it in 3 weeks.  My mom died 4 weeks before my daughter’s wedding last year, and both my daughters and my dress needed alterations, when we returned from my mom’s funeral 3 weeks before the wedding.  Just make sure that they know up front how soon you need it !!!! Make sure you get in writing when they will have it finished.   I would have chosen someone to alter at our local drycleaner/seamstress, but my daughter was nervous, didn’t like the seamstress at the drycleaner, and instead of $50.00 for her alterations, the dressmaker she chose charged $300.00 per dress, when she saw our expressions she said she’d do both for $300.00 so we went ahead and got them done with her instead of increasing our stress level.  Make sure you still eat healthy, and enough  calories, you don’t want to be sick for your wedding-or look sickly.  Have a wonderful wedding date.

If you’re happy about your current weight, 3 weeks should be PLENTY of time for a good tailor/seamstress.  Don’t waste any time though, take it now!

protein shakes. However the cost off all the extra food or suppliments may be similar to the cost of just paying a seamstress to take it in and even then there is no guarantee you will be at the ideal weight to fit the gown on your day. I wouldn’t risk it. I would just go to a seamstress while you at least have the time.
