I'm a little nervous because I already bought my dress and I deliberately got it smaller because I had almost a year to fit into it. I know alterations are possible but I don't want to mess up the dress because it really is beautiful and I know it's harder to add than to take away. Does anyone know any of these alteration shops www.gatheringguide.com/event_dir/ga_georgi

and if they're reliable?

"If I buy it 6 months before like all of the books I've read say to do and I keep losing then it won't fit on the big day right?"

That's what the alterations department is there for!

You should buy it roughly 6 months out as it takes about 12 weeks (3 months) for the dress to come in. Also with buying the dress to fit your biggest measurement, you inevitably have to have alterations on it anyways. When you buy the dress, order for your current body measurements and just have it altered as needed.

My wedding is about a year off, sometime next summer, no actual date set yet. My goal is to get to my goal weight by wedding day so when should I buy my dress? If I buy it 6 months before like all of the books I've read say to do and I keep losing then it won't fit on the big day right?
