Congratulations on your engagement and weight loss journey so far!

When to buy a wedding dress while losing weight depends on the amount of weight you plan to lose before the wedding.

  • For a 5-20 pound weight loss, buy a dress that fits your current body and have it tailored closer to the wedding.

  • For a 20-40 pound weight loss, wait until you are down to 20 pounds or less to lose before ordering a dress, and order it 8-9 months before the wedding.

  • For a 40+ pound weight loss, it may be a good idea to wait to buy a dress to choose one that fits your new body shape.

  • Consider choosing a corset back dress, as it's easier to tailor.

Wedding dress shopping timeline:

  • 1 year before wedding: pick a silhouette for your dress, start browsing and shopping for styles, try on dresses in your current size.

  • 8-9 months before wedding: buy your wedding dress.

  • 5 months before wedding: shop for undergarments (if desired).

  • 3 months before wedding: have the first wedding dress fitting, tell the seamstress about your weight loss goals.

  • 6-8 weeks before wedding: have additional dress fittings.

  • 2-3 weeks before wedding: have the final wedding dress fitting.

Remember that you are beautiful and will look amazing on your wedding day, no matter what!

Working with Cara has been amazing for my health and fitness. Her guidance on adding carbs to my training diet and selecting supplements was invaluable. I achieved a 3% reduction in body fat and gained 6.2lbs of muscle in a short time.

Highly recommend her expertise.
