@Wafflesmom  Aww thank you!  You cracked me up with the pj comment.  It feels like lately I've had a lot of annoying hurdles.  I hope that things tie together nicely in the next 2 months!

 

Thanks so much for the encouragement.  I will make sure to pay this forward when the times comes and someone else finds themselves in this position with their dress not fitting.  lol

Hi @veryvalentine
I'm sure everything will work out for you. I had a similar situation with my dress when we first planned to marry in 2013. I ordered it online after trying one in the shop and went 2 sizes smaller as I was losing weight regularly and had around 10 months. It came...couldn't do it up at all or even get it past my butt! I eventually lost enough to get it up but not close properly. Anyway we ended up cancelling/postponing due to other reasons and the weight piled back on. I am know on a strict diet and ordered my dress just one size smaller as I was in between sizes anyway...hopefully it will fit perfectly when it arrives in 6 weeks

The dress shop will get it sorted for you xx

thank you so much for your kind words and support the past few days!  I went to the bridal store yesterday and tried the dress on for my consultant.  She didn't understand how it wasn't fitting.  She took my measurements and if anything I was smaller since the last time she saw me.  They brought in alterations and she couldn't figure it out.  I tried the next size up and it was now too big.  So we couldn't figure it.  Finally the manager came and looked through my paper work and they realized that I had ordered a 14W and the dress was actually a 14. So that's why it wasn't fitting as nice.

 

I tried the store's 14W and it fit perfectly.  The dress comes in at the end of this month and then I'll rush to alterations.

It's been a crazy experience but it gave me a good wake up call to get back to my weightloss goals.  I'm still going to be hardcore with my works outs and diet.  I want to feel the best I can possibly feel on that day.  

 

thanks ladies! :)

Glad you figured it out even if you have to wait for another dress!  They will be able to do the alterations in time!!

I feel beyond relieved.  I feel like a bride that is getting married in 2 months!  yay!  I cried so much on sunday and Monday but I'm just so glad that it's fixed now.  The consultant that helped me was amazing.  She was the best.

 

I lost 8lbs from Sunday to today.  I had been following a very strict diet and going to the gym 1-2 times a day...I'm still going to continue this regime but not as hardcore with the gym as I don't think I can keep up the momentum for the next 2 months.

*I can now breathe*   :lol:

those are such great news!! I'm glad they can still order a new dress in time :D and everything worked out. 

 

Aside from getting back on your health routine, you should also celebrate that you're one size smaller than when you got the dress! That's no small achievement ;).

 

Props to you for working out twice a day! I can barely work out once a day, sometimes beating the internal endless list of excuses haha. I think if you really watch the diet, even if you don't go twice a day to the gym, you'll see pretty big changes anyway ;).

@TinkerSofi  I think so too!!  The nice thing is that the dress fits so I don't  have like major pressure on my back.  But I still want to look my best so that's what's going to motivate me right now.

 

I go twice to the gym because I go on my lunch break and then in the evenings I try to catch a step class or pump class at goodlife.  So it's about 2 hours of working out which isn't a lot considering that i'm sitting down most of the day at the office.  hahaha
