Good question...four months before would be cutting it close for me in the wrong direction. Lol. We're about 6 months out and I have about 20 more pounds I'd like to lose. Definitely don't think it would be good to do that in just 8 weeks. Lol. Nor could I actually do it anyways. I'd like to have it done by January though. Then again, it's not sooo much about the pounds but about the inches.

Most bridal shops will tell you that you need to order your gown at least 8 months before the day. But you can always have it taken in. Better too big than too small.

I was reading about this on a bridal website the other day. They suggest that you try and reach your goal weight 4 months before the wedding. Then, ideally, you can find your dress and just maintain for four months. I don't know any brides that can do this, but it does sound like it would make everything less stressful!

In January of 2008 I was 226 pounds and a size 20.
Never again!
