    I think you should try to lose the weight but as I dont know you, I dont know your schedule its kinda impossible to say. If you do have time I would say join one of the, gym and spas, work out on the treadmill hard hard hard and then go for a relaxing swim. It will probably take a lot of the stress off as well. Plus youll feel better on your wedding day and not stressed out.

    I don’t think that a corset back would look right on that dress. I’d put the effort into working out. I use it as a stress killer from the wedding planning. There’s little things you can change in order to lose weight without spending an hour at the gym every day. Focus on eating habits and ways to snack healthy and such.

    I deceided 2 months before my wedding that i didnt want to wear my 1st dress pic. So i went shopping found one at a steal. received it in the mail and it was to tight.

    but not too much. So this was June and we were getting married in august and I managed to lost just over 20lbs.

    I swam and walked/run. and ate smaller portions. I did it for me myself alone not anyone else. I loved that new dress so it was worth it.

    What a beautiful dress! I agree with the poster who thought a corset back wouldn’t be quite right for it – so, how much would you have to lose? What were your measurements when you bought the dress, and what are they now?

    I would never advise someone to buy a too-small dress and then crash-diet to get into it, but your situation is a bit different – you just want to get back to where you were when you bought it. I think the advise of others, to use a workout regimen as the stress-buster you so obviously need, and think of the weight loss as an added bonus.

    If worse comes to worst, how much time would your seamstress need to put a corset back on it?

    I agree with the PP that you should try to lose the weight because it will make you feel so much better. When I was in school, I would bring my reading to the gym and do the elliptical on high resistance, which burned a lot of calories even though I was going slow enough to read. That way you don’t have to sacrifice so much time.

    Also, go buy yourself a huge water bottle and carry it around at all times. Drinking tons of water will help the weight come off and curb your appetite, as well as make your head clearer. 

    Have you thought about trying to cut out carbs and added sugars? I started that last week and I immediately lost a few lbs, and I had more energy
