Maybe an empire waist?  I’d be wary of ordering it in the size you hope to be – I’ve read that a lot of brides do this and have to have panels added in!  Of course, it depends to a degree on how much time you have until the wedding, and you have plenty.  Can you wait on ordering a dress until you are ~8 months out, and see how you are then?

The good news is that next May is a year away!  Most dresses are ordered a good number of months ahead of time, though.  Is there a bridal salon you have your heart set on?  If so, you could ask them about how much time before your wedding you need to order your dress, and what kinds of alterations are possible. 

My sister is in your reverse situation!  She ordered her size four dress then found out she was pregnant!  The dress came in the other day, and she can barely squeeze in (not a pounds issue, but a rearranging of the hips issue).  Thankfully the wedding is in August so the bridal shop can still do the alterations.

Have you looked into corset-style dresses?
