Has anyone had the experience of dropping a lot of weight before getting married and then needinfg to get the dress altered? I'm a little worried b/c I'm gonig to start working out with a trainer this month, but am not getting married until Jan/15. SHould I buy a dress in my current size or a smaller size?
I bought my dress off the rack about a year before the wedding. At the time it was two sizes too big. In that year I went down another dress size. The seamstress I went to did an amazing job. I was worried that the dress wasn't going to turn out, but it was amazing. The dress fit perfectly. It did cost a bit more to have it altered, but it was so worth it, especially with how much I saved buying it off the rack. If you buy it in your current size you should have no problem having it altered to fit your future body. If you buy it too small, it might serve as motivation for you, but it could also cause a major stress! But do what you think will be best.
