My office is starting a Biggest Loser style weight loss program. I had to pinch myself when these words almost came out of my mouth: “But if I lose a bunch of weight, my perfect dress won’t fit!”. I mean, come ON!
So I am preparing myself for either having a boatload of alterations done in order to have the dress fit as well as it does now, OR, start dress shopping from scratch and end up as a two-dress-bride. And I have decided that I am OK with that.
Anyone else losing weight and wondering what’s going to happen to your dress?

Yep! In fact, I actually didn’t buy a dress from a store because the consultant told me to stop losing weight after I bought my dress. Um, no! This really turned me off, because in my mind, my health is WAY more important than a dress. I didn’t care if I was going to be paying for alterations.
That being said, I did stress for months until my dress came in, because I lost a good amount after ordering. Yes, it was big on me when it came in, and yes, I’m paying through the nose for alterations, but the point is that they can alter it to fit you – in my case, my seamstress is taking my dress in from a size 12 to a size 8!

luckily for you it is easier to make a dress smaller than it is to make it bigger, so you shoudln’t have to worry too much agout that. And if I were you I would want to know that I looked as healthy as possible in the wedding pictures that are going to be on the wall of my home for the next 40 years. Just my thought.
Depending on what style of dress you have alterations are typically pretty easy if it is just one size or a half size down. and if you have a corset back style you might not have to do much or anything. Focus on your health. your wedding isn’t for another 7 months, wait until you are at a stable weight later this summer and get alterations done then.
