It’s a common story — hoping to lose weight before the wedding. 35-45 pounds. Wedding is in June. I’ve just started dress shopping and have so far found one dress that could potentially be the one, but I am going to continue to search over this month. I’m planning on ordering the size I am (or maybe a size down if I’m in-between sizes) and have the dress altered assuming I lose weight (I successfully lost 70 pounds 5 years ago, regained 15-20 this past year, so I feel reasonably confident I can lose some or most of the weight). How long can I wait to order the dress and still have time for alterations? What If I lost 40 pounds is that too much for alterations (anticipated dress is lace, no real beading)? Order a smaller size? Wait to lose more weight and then put in a rush order?
