Freaking - What Size Dress???

Recommended Posts

so i ordered my wedding dress yesterday. i was so excited! now i'm a bit stressed out and hoping someone can put my mind at ease...

 

my bridal shop didn't have my mori lee dress (actually no shop in a 100 mi radius has a sample of my dress...i found it when shopping up in CT) so they had to measure me to figure out what size to order. my measurements were just a mite smaller than the size 8. the shop owner thought i looked closer to a 6 so she put me in a mori lee size 6 dress (not mine) and it was no problem to zipper up, but was a bit snug in the middle. i plan to lose a bit of weight in the next 3 months (7 mos until my wedding) so the shop owner said we should go ahead and order the dress in a size 6, so we did.

 

well, today i was at a shower and told the girls about my dress ordering experience and they all made me really nervous about ordering the size that wasn't a perfect yet. i would understand if i was already very fit and it'd be hard to lose more weight, but i'm not in the best shape - even at a size 6 I have plenty of extra padding everywhere!

 

i know myself so I don't think i'll have any problem losing a few pounds (i have me some pretty damn good willpower when its necessary) and also figure the dress can be let out an inch or two if worse comes to worse...am I wronghuh.gif should i be freaking out about thishuh.gif

 

Updated: sorry, i'm a dummy and forgot to give the link to the dress since i know you'll want to see it!

Very pretty dress!! You will be fine and if the shop owner said to order that size..seems as she would know. You have plenty of time to work on fitting into it. I have confidence in you!!

No I think you did the right thing, I did the opposite and now wish I hadn't in case I can't get it altered!

 

A little bit tight is better than 2 big when you want to lose weight I think

Well if the owner measured you properly & if you know that you are going to lose some weight in the next few months, then why worry? When your dress comes in, and you have your appt for the fitting, you'll be able to see how it fits at that point. So to me there's reallly no reason to stress out about it now. I say relax & be happy that you have ordered your dress!

I think you did the right thing. One of my friends tried on her dress and the sample size fit her like a glove. The shop owner tried to talk her into what her measurements said she was (a few sizes larger than the sample she tried on), but she went against her reco and ordered the sample size. When it came in it fit her perfect!

I think you will be A-OK on this one wink.gif

The dresss is really pretty! I think if the dress shop owner said to go with the 6 then I think it should be ok.

I have horror stories about unscrupulous (sp?)shops that order dresses too big because they then hit the brides up for huge alteration fees! I am sure you will be fine!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
