    So, I notice a lot of us are here as we are losing weight in order to fit into our dresses! So thought I'd start a wedding thread!

    Who out of us is getting married? And When? Any pics of your dresses?

    I'll start us off. I'm getting married on 30th September. Have another stone to lose. Currently a size 12-14 but need to be a size 10-12 in order to get into this dress:

    Currently 16 bought a dress in a size 14 as my boobs wont reduce that much. However if they do I can have my dress taken in!!

    Just because he wont forget our wedding date. And also when we got engaged last year we said we'd wait for our son to be about 2 1/2 and he will be by then ;-) I love the date!!
    As for my dress it is an Alfred Anglo dress originally £800 I paid £170 hence getting it so early!! I'm not wearing White it's a champagne colour :)

    Oooh, I'm excited for you all :D My boyfriend says we can get married but he's not proposed yet. He said it nearly 6 weeks ago, I'm getting impatient XD

    This is the dress I'd want in an ideal world. I'm a foot shorter than Taylor Swift though, so I'd don't think I'd look quite so elegant! Somehow I don't think we'd be able to afford it either :D
