Your dress is gorgeous! Calm down though, if your date you have down is correct you aren’t getting married until next June!  You have plenty of time to drop some weight before the wedding.  It doesn’t look like you have very much to lose anyways!

You have SO much time, you shouldn’t start alteration until next spring! You can start working out just to get in better shape overall, and if it’s still tight next spring, then you can get it let out. You are so far out from your date, don’t sweat it!

You have almost a year to lose that little bit of weight, don’t worry about it!

Just make sure you make a commitment to yourself and try to loose those additional pounds you gained, it should not be hard at all, its only 5 lbs and you have about 9 months to go..i am in a diet to loose 15 pounds to be able to fit good in my dress and I have 10 months to go, so dont freak out just loose those extra lbs, you have more than enough time 🙂

You are worrying WAY too soon. I found my dress off the rack June 30 (5 mons b4 my wedding) and came in this past Sat for my first fitting. When I originally tried on the dress it was a bit snug like a bear is hugging you. My mother suggested I lose 10 lbs. I dk how much weight I lost (at least 4 lbs, I didn’t weigh myself the last wk) but it was a tiny bit loose but fit great enough not to need any alterations! I would start watching what I eat and just start walking. I don’t think you need to loose that much weight and you have a LONG way to go….

You have so much time! I wouldn’t even begin to worry about it yet. Just keep eatin right and exercising and maybe let it out later if you need to.

Bigger?  You look great, even in those pictures!  Don’t worry about that.  And your train looks gorgeous!  It’ll look great going down the aisle!  I’m having an outdoor ceremony, and my train is about the same length as yours and I’m not altering it.  But I am thinking about getting a bustle put in so I don’t have to worry about people stepping on it during the reception.  Have you thought about a bustle?
