What Size Dress To Order??

Recommended Posts

I was hoping brides who bought their dress could help me out. Here is my problem. I fell in love it a wedding dress about 2 months ago oh it is so beautiful!! I have been working out really hard and wanted to loose an additional 20 lbs before our wedding. So I paid for the dress but asked if they could wait to hold off on ordering it and see how much I could loose. So on June 2nd I am suppose to go back to be fitted and order the dress. I lost about 8 lbs and was able to get into the next size down and I was about 2 inches away from being into the next size down dress (so that is 2 sizes from when I bought the dress). Of course being so close to my goal somethng had to go wrong.... I broke my foot this week. So I am pretty much laid up for the next week or two and no gym for me for 6 weeks at least. Our wedding is in 9 months, the dress has bust lines so it can only be taken in 2 possibly 3 sizes would you order the smaller size that I was close to get into, even though I will not be that size when I order the dress? or should I get the bigger but then my concern is that I will have to stop loosing weight possibly before my goal. AHHH...

Check to see how long the dress order is. Most dresses take about 12 weeks order time. I would wait a little longer so that you dont have to pay for multiple alterations to take it in. They get expensive!

It seems like you have a long time before you really have to order your dress. I think mine is taking 5 months and my wedding is a little less than nine months. I think 5 months is on the long end of the rage for dresses, and the salesperson told me that I would be safe ordering in august for a february wedding. Unless the dress takes 6+ months to make I don't see the rush to order it now. Is it being discontinued or somethinghuh.gif

Thanks! The dress will take about 4 months. So I thought if I changed my date to order the dress until mid July then I would have about 2 months for alterations.

I was told that during alterations they can take the dress in two whole sizes and it be ok, if you can put off ordering a few more months I would do that and order the size you are at that time. You dont want to be in a huge bind if your dress is no where close to fitting. This way you can have the glory of having it taken in.

I called the salon where I bought the dress and they said I can put off ordering the dress until August so that is Great! I was just told today I can got back to the gym to work upper body so I am getting lots of good info today!

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
