I think it depends on a few things: 1) how far away your wedding is, and 2) budget. If your wedding is pretty soon, I’d probably just set the goal to lose the weight afterwards. But if it’s a year down the road, then I’d say ya! Get to it- you’ll feel great πŸ™‚ Also, figure out how much alterations will put you in the hole, and whether you can afford the alterations.

I think it depends less on the dress and more on whether you’re going to keep the weight off. So many people try to lose weight for their wedding and they do, but then gain it back and then some! If you really want to make lifestyle changes and lose weight in a healthy way and keep it off, I’d say it’s worth it to have to do alterations πŸ™‚

I dont think you should let a dress determine how you look and the future of your physical shape and health….

I say, try to be healthy but don’t stress yourself about trying to lose weight. Do whatever you would do if you weren’t getting married. I mean don’t purposefully try to avoid losing weight just so your dress still fits (so long as you can afford the alterations) but don’t feel pressured to lose weight specifically for the wedding. You’ll look great either way!

Just get in shape and worry about your dress a couple months before the wedding.  Don’t stay away from the gym/healthy eating, just to avoid alterations.

I think it’s a great idea to get in shape, especially since you wanted to loose weight for your wedding anyway. Even if your dress fits now, it’s still good to get healthy! πŸ™‚
