Losing Weight For Your Wedding

So many brides ask us about losing weight and when to buy their wedding dress. It’s completely normal to feel like you want to lose weight for your wedding day, I remember many years ago when I got married, I was definitely on a weight loss journey.

It really does depend on how much weight you are looking to lose.  The perfect time to buy your dress is around 12 months before your wedding, if you’re super organised then you might want to do this a little bit earlier, but if you are losing weight and you plan to lose more than a stone and a half then leave it as late as possible. We would suggest no later than nine months before your big day.

Bridal seamstresses are miracle workers and have the skills to take bridal dresses down by many sizes. It’s really easy for them to alter a dress by 2 sizes and more. We’ve known bridal seamstresses take dresses down by six sizes so there is no need to worry.

The most important thing is that you find a dress that makes you feel incredible. If you’re not feeling great in yourself then you may prefer to hold off until you have lost weight. Remember, it’s all about doing what is right for you. If you are happy with your weight, please don’t feel like you need to lose weight for your day.

Whatever size you are when you put a wedding dress on it’s the best feeling ever. Whether you’re a size 8, 18 or 28, you will find a dress that makes you look and feel AMAZING.

We hope you have found this useful. Don’t hesitate to find us on social media and pop over any questions you may have.
