When brides are in the wedding planning stages, dress shopping is a very early part on the planning agenda. Brides should expect to order their dress on average, 9 -12 months prior to the wedding, but what is the one thing we hear most often when preparing to place that very important order? “Well, I am planning to lose weight”. A good majority of brides have this one thing on their mind when they go shopping for a gown, but the reality is you should dress the body you have now, not the one you hope to have later. Life happens and the weight does not always come off as fast as expected or in the places expected. Talk about added pressure by ordering a size smaller than what you are; as if the planning process weren’t pressure enough! If you dress who you are today and the weight comes off great! Dresses are made with alterations in mind and can be taken in an average of two sizes or more depending on the style and construction. If you dress who you are today and the weight doesn’t come off, or (gasp) you gain a tiny bit, you are still good. With the right alterations expert in your corner you will fit beautifully in that dress you have dreamed about for so many months.
