Don’t worry, it will be fine. That’s what a fitting is for! If anything, the dress will probably look even better on you now! 

Good luck and breathe easy – this is supposed to be fun!

My dress was ordered too big and I needed it to be altered down a couple of sizes too.  Hopefully, you are going to a seamstress you really trust.  We were really fearful of altering the structure of the dress, but it ended up working out fabulously!

I think one size shouldn’t be a problem to alter the dress without losing it’s shape.  If you were taking the dress from a 16 to a 6, I may be concerned, but a few inches should be simple for a quality seamstress.  However, since you have lost a considerable amount (GO YOU), be prepared for it to take several fittings to be perfect, as opposed to a simple fitting.
