What looks good? It’s actually what fits that matters most. Yes, color is really important, but I believe tailoring is key to making any outfit work. It’s also the details on the day, such as ironing or steaming. If you haven’t tried on your outfit within 3 months of your event, make sure you try on your outfit to make sure it fits the day of. Also make sure that there is no damage (clasps or buttons missing).
It take between 6 months to 10 months for wedding dresses to be custom made from distribution or boutiques. When you try on a wedding gown or outfit, when you order, the largest part of your body will set the size of the outfit. Tailoring is going to be key, regardless of weight loss or toning. Bridal attire has support normal clothing will not have and you will be shocked on how amazing you look! Trust in the processionals and do your homework on designers. Check out social media according to your size and what may be flattering. Go get the dress and trust the process. Take only 1-2 of your best cheerleaders. Or go dress shopping yourself. Large parties can be pretty stressful and lead to too many options. Don’t leave a health goal based on one day. I have you covered on the photography end – posing is also going to be a large part of how to make anyone look dynamite.
Ok- deep breaths. Do you need shape wear? are you in the middle of a hormone cycle that creates water retention?
If it’s totally not going to fit, contact the store you purchased the items from. Maybe they can find a dress or suit in the size and emergency do a fitting.
Calling your local seamstress is going to be your best bet as well. They can add simple panels or take dresses out possibly with items that have wiggle room fabric.
Deep breaths – it’s going to be ok!
