    Evening everyone!

    Is the new plan on the WW website from tomorrow? I need to lose some weight before I get married next year and was thinking of going back to WW as I lost some weight doing it last year.

    I don't want to wait till next Saturday to find out what the new plan is!!! Why can't my weigh in be sooner :(

    To the brides: what did you do about dress sizes, i'm worried because i plan on losing about 2-3 stones before my wedding next year but need to order my dress very soon....

    Sorry totally off topic guys!

    I've found my dress but I'm going to order it at the beginning of Feb after I've hopefully lost some weight. Preferably a stone...

    I'm getting married in July too and the bridal shop were the ones that told me to come back and order in February. I suppose it all depends who the manufactuer is.

    I bought my wedding dress from ebay and had it altered 6 weeks before my wedding. I think my entire wedding cost less than £2000 - very frugal!

    You should get a wedding thread going for all things wedding related! The most expensive part of my wedding was the singer we had for the reception.

    Very exciting.

    Hey guys!!!!!

    eek im getting married on the 27th aug next year! yayyyyy :)

    in relation to the dress issue I wanted a particular maggie sottero one so I ordered it in June this year as they couldnt guarantee it would not be discontinued come next year...I know its extremely early to have ordered it but I truly believe its played a huge part in how well ive done with the weight loss over last few months - the dress is a massive incentive because - i've ordered the dress [in 4 sizes smaller than I was when they measured me in June!!!!] and mentally I therefore know I HAVE to do it this time!!

    xx

    Wow Chantelle that is sooo brave, don't think i have enough belief in myself to do that! But well done you, you seem to be well on your journey to reaching your goal!

    I don't even have a dress though so i think i'm going to see what style it is and then make a decision, if its one that can easily be altered then i will get it just one size down, if its one that would ruin the design if it was altered too much then i might brave it and buy it two sizes down.... We shall see...

    And thanks Starlight for making this thread, twas very confusing having 2 conversations simultaneously running on the same thread!! :D

    I too got my dress off Ebay - it was a St Patrick (Pronovias) sample which cost me £85, absolutely beautiful. The shop price was £700.

    Hey brides :) I'm getting married 8th may 2011 :D

    With regards to dresses, i picked my dress about 1 months ago but was advised by the shop i could order it and have it in plenty of time as long as i put the order in by 30th nov. So im going in a few weeks to get measured. i think when i go i'll be a 16-18 so im gonna order a 16. I hope to be 12-14 by the time of the wedding but the dress can be altered up to 3 sizes down so i know ive got plenty of room for altering. The bridal shop told me for the type of dress im having they can alter by 3 sizes (thats if its lace up the back) and if not usually they can alter about 2 sizes.

    :)
