- Wedding: January 2012
So, I went to essentially my final dress fitting today (it might still need a few little tweaks) and my seamstress told me to not lose any weight or else the hem on the wedding gown will be too long. I didn’t know exactly how to take that. In fact, she even encouraged me to eat as many sweets as I like and to gain a little weight because she says that most brides loses some 10 days before their wedding b/c of stress.
Part of me is relieved that amidst the holiday season I won’t have to watch what I’m eating but part of me is disappointed. I’m not overweight but I’m right on the line between overweight and normal. I could stand to lose 10 pounds and was hoping that through all the running around doing wedding things I would lose about 5.
Has anyone else been told to not lose any weight for their wedding?
