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!!

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

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...
