- Wedding: August 2012
How many weeks before your wedding did you schedule your first fitting? I just scheduled mine 8 weeks before. Is this way too late or too early? My sister said you are suppose to be at your goal weight at your first fitting. Well, that’s not happening even by wedding day because I want to loose like 70 lbs. For those who had their first dress fitting 8-10 weeks before, how much weight did you continue to loose before your final fitting, and was it a problem in the end? Also, how many sizes did you have your dress altered down from originally?
I guess realistically, if I loose tops (wishfull thinking) 2-3lbs a week after my first fitting, that would be at most 24lbs. I was told one dress size is usually 15-20lbs so thats like 1.5 dress sizes in. I don’t see that being too big of a deal if I have a corset back but maybe I am totally off. I guess it might be a bigger deal if I had that 3 lb rate for the next 17 weeks (till the wedding) since that would be 51lbs…and then that would be 2.5-3.5 sizes and more of a major reconstruction. Anyway, I doublt that would happen. I could see myself knowing my history with trying to loose weight…loosing up to 25lbs tops.
