Are you getting married outside?

I would make sure to stay very, very hydrated the week before your wedding and the day of.  Eat a lot of ice during the day of the wedding so you are cool, hydrated, and not bloated.  I think that would help.

Eating ice is a great idea. I would also suggest cotton undergarments and maybe some baby powder is some areas to help with any chaffing.

If its so tight on your stomach that you feel sick and uncomfortable, its too small.  Think of it this way- would you buy any other piece of clothing if it made you feel that way?  Of course not, you’d buy a larger size.

Its not normal to feel sick in a dress, even a heavily beaded one.  Get it taken out so you don’t pass out on your wedding day!

have you decided on a hairstyle yet? wearing your hair up and off your neck will keep you a cooler and throughout the day if you feel yourself getting woozy, put a cold, damp towel on the back of your neck to cool you down. i’ve also heard the running cold water over your wrists helps too.

my mom doesn’t do well in the heat and she got these cooling towel things that you put in water and they keep you cool (without soaking you). maybe you can try to find something like that?

It’s possible to have the DB ladies let it out within a week…that is if they aren’t already booked.  It won’t hurt to ask them.

My seamstress told me to have a small fan (like a box fan) with me at church and at the reception. She said she tells all her brides to put the fan in a corner out of the way so when you need to cool off, step up to the fan and hold the skirt up a bit to let the air hit your legs.  I’ve talked to a few brides who did that and they said it was a life saver.

Have a battery operated fan handy at all times. Maybe a family member could carry it in their purse for you.

It probably feels tight now because, with the heat we’ve been having, you might be a little more swollen and puffy than usual. Definitely stay as hydrated as you can, as PPs have said.
