I agree...some detailing on dresses cannot be altered a lot. If you have not ordered already, I would check with a seamstress to see how much of an alteration can be done. If you are adamant about losing that weight then you could always order a smaller size (somewhere in the middle of where you are & where you want to be) but I'm always wary of that!

Good Luck with the dress and the weight loss!!

Yes, I've already ordered the dress...when I did, I told her that I was planning on losing about that much and she said that it would be no problem to have it altered and that she didn't feel comfortable ordering it in a smaller size. I guess she's the pro and would know but I wanted to see if anyone else had that same experience and it turned out great?

Here's my dress when it came in:

I was at David's Bridal on the weekend and the sales girl told me that she has seen as much as 4 sizes taken in. This is what I am hoping for. I plan on losing alot of weight but not ordering my dress for a few more months, I was going to wait until I dropped all my weight, but of course the dress that I fell in love with is an older style and I am worried that it will not be there in 6 months when I would be ready to buy.

 

So I think 20lbs you will be fine to have your alterations done.

When I was ordering my dress, the saleslady told me there was a girl who lost 120 lbs - yes One Hundred and Twenty pounds, and they were able to alter her dress. 20 pounds shouldn't be too much of an issue. Good Luck - I want to lose 20 pounds before my dress comes in too!

I have lost 25 pounds in the last few months. I have ordered my dress at the size i was when I ordered it. I did not want to take the chance !! Turns out, I only lost 10 pounds since I ordered it, not so much - but also no pressure on me to lose more !

 

Your dress looks simple to take in : it will have to be done from the sides. that should really not be an issue, 20 pounds is very reasonnable amount of weight loss for a dress.

 

wait until the last minute to have your alterations done ! My dress is with the seamstress right now, I only get it back in 10 days, and I'm leaving in only 3 weeks...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
