Ladies, my 2 cents on your body and dresses...
I tried on over 60 dresses before finding mine. I am utterly convinced that it's not all about weight. It's all about your body shape: boobies, waist, hips, height, proportions (emphasis on proportions), etc. My very first time shopping for a wedding dress, I saw a girl who was probably 300 lbs find an amazing dress! She seriously looked great. It was all about the cut and style of the dress working for her body. I also tried on dresses that looked better on me than the model! Trust me, I do not have a model body (I'm 5'3" and 135 lbs). But those dresses were obviously made in such a way that they better complimented my body than the model's body.
So ladies, you go ahead and loose weight if you are concerned about your health. But please don't make the mistake of thinking that you need to do it to look good in a wedding dress. Just like all each us, dresses come in a rainbow of shapes and styles. It's all about finding the right match for YOU. It's the same as how each girl here had to go through different partners before finding the one that was is best match for the unique mix that makes her the person that she is.
Now I am stepping down from my soap box!

I bought my dress in March before we had set our date and I too have had some doubts when I see other dresses on here. But then I tried it on again and remembered why it felt right when I tried it on for the first time. I had tried on lots of dresses before I found it! You could change the neck line if you wanted, but I think it looks so nice on you already. Remember to try it on again with the shoes, jewelry and a veil if you plan on wearing one. Then you will see the full affect!
