I think the best way to approach this is to eat healthier for the next few days. Don’t do a crash diet. That will make you feel bad on your wedding day. Don’t stress about this too much. That will make you want to go towards comfort food. It might be too late to let out some fabric but see if your seamstress can do some magic.

I agree.. try to watch what you eat over the next couple days .. avoid salt and drink a TON of water! You can easily carry around 5lbs of water weight so trying to keep any bloat out of the equation is ideal.

I agree with @Applestar13:, try eating healthier for the next few days and drink a ton of water. Also, talk to your seamstress right away to see if she can do some emergency surgery to that area of your gown. It should be an easy fix, but you might have to pay extra for the rush.

Thanks for the help I must be in denial I didnt expect that responce lol .. thats a great idea im sure even if it dose not take the extra “hip” away , I will at least feel more healthy. With two kiddos stay at home momma and honey who is only home 6 days a month due to work, this has been draining, plannng and catering to everyone else lol was kinda thinking of a more crafty rout? idk thank you thoe will try that for sure, 4 days, I can do that! 🙂

What are you wearing underneath the dress? If you’re not already wearing a Spanx type undergarment, trying one my pull you in a bit making the dress to fit better.

Could you buy a sash in a cute color? Instead of wrapping it around you could make a bow and get it pinned to right over the area you’re worried about? Might look cute…

4 days of apple pie? Just to let you know, it’s pretty hard to gain THAT much weight. 1 pound is 3500 extra calories–that’s like, 7 slices of apple pie ON TOP of what you already eat. 2 pounds is 7000. So yes, it’s *possible* that you ate 1750 extra calories every day for the past 4 days, but it’s not an easy feat. Most likely you also have some water retention going on there.
I agree with PP–eat healthy, lots of fruits and vegetables, and exercise. I’d also maybe eat some light natural diuretics–and by “natural” I mean literally food that tends to have a diuretic effect, not supplements. Stuff like asparagus, lemon juice in water, dandelion root tea, and ginger. And drink a lot of water while you’re at it.
And cut back on processed food and salt.

In only 4 days, I agree with no salt and lots of water, but I would add no carbs, absolutely no carbs. No sugars (including fruit and corn) and no breads or pasta’s. I had to go to a formal last year and my dress was snug and I got into it in a few days with no carbs. Can’t hurt.

I agree with everyone else’s advice about lots of water, no salt, and no carbs for the next few days. Also, work out (it can help you lose water weight). Also, Spanx can work wonders.

There is a spa here that does body wraps…its only temporary but i might do it a day or two before my wedding. its supposed to get rid of the water weight and take off a few inches. i dont have any experience with it but ive heard good things. Like i said its a temporary solution but im up for giving it a try.
