@FutureMrsEAG:  Please don’t take this the wrong way…

But are you going to get stressed and put it back on when you get closer to the new date and thus need your dress still? 

I’m not sure the reasons for the loss (working really hard or simply lack of stress?) So I appologize if you’ve worked your buns off (literally)

And a solution if you’re going to stay around your new weight… why not order the same dress just not plus sized? or find a 2nd hand one of the same style?? Or even the sample you tried on in store if it was smaller than the one you ordered??

@FutureMrsEAG:  is there really no possible way to have it altered? Did a seamstress tell you it can’t be done without completely changing the dress?

Maybe you can still wear the dress even if it doesn’t look exactly like it does right now. I went back and looked at your dress and I honestly think it can be altered. They might have to remove the beading on the side and bust and re-do it but I still think it can be done. Then again, I’m not a seamstress so this could just be me being optimistic.

@FutureMrsEAG:  I had a major weight loss issue and the bridal shop was able to swap the dress out for me (for a smaller size).  I’d say it’s worth a call and plea… and, if that doesn’t work, I’d hunt down a few reputable seamstresses and see if they can work their magic on it.  You never know!  And, congrats with the weight loss!

can you have the other mori lee ones altered by the manufacturer to be more similar to yours?
