The Slim-Fast ad above was created to bring a levity to weight loss plans for brides, but it reminded me of a painful story I heard about a bride without a wedding gown.

Apparently, this young lady purchased her wedding gown two sizes too small because she planned to lose the weight before her wedding day.

Unfortunately, she didn’t lose the amount of weight needed to fit into her gown and her seamstress was unable to “let out” enough of the dress to accommodate her current size.

Here’s the deal.  It’s much easier to take in your wedding gown than it is to let it out.  Get the dress in your current size and have it taken in if you lose weight (not the other way around).

Sure, it will stink initially, but it will be a lot less stressful at your final fitting.

Love & Soul Always, Kay
