I know exactly how you feel...I was in a wedding this summer and ofcoarse was one of the biggest ones. Well all the skinny girls picked this short strapless number. I had to get mine in such a big size so it would fit over my boobs that it ended up looking like I was wearing a black bag. Horrible....not to mention tons of people I hadn't seen since highschool were there.

So my suggestion for you is.......pick the dress. lol

Gosh, this issue hits close to home. I was so embarrassed about my size I told my best friend from childhood I couldn't be in her wedding (I could not handle looking at the pictures....picture phobic (still am)). She went ahead and found another bridesmaid and I have to say, I spent the entire wedding broken hearted that I wasn't a part of it.
That was almost 7 years ago and I still am sad I wasn't in that wedding.

Amen, sista! I understand, too. I was huge in my cousin's wedding a few years back - the biggest one in the party. I was mortified, but I survived and you will too. I also have big feet - must be more common than I thought. Just hang in there and face it head on and smile and be happy. Those skinny chicks will be jealous cause you eat what you want AND you're happy. Ha ha. Seriously, you know that you're working on bettering yourself and you should be proud of that. Just hang in there! You're not alone.

What about using an elliptical? Would that be okay for your arthritis?

Honestly if you can get on the treadmill at ALL it's better than nothing. And you don't have to run- I find even when on the treadmill and briskly walking I am still getting a decent workout. 10 minutes a day will make a world of difference.

You will be OK!
I got married last May and I stressed over the kind of dress that I was going to wear. In the end everything worked out great. I just had to get over my weight and know that everyone loves being around me and loves who I am!
When I let go a bit and knew that I was not at my goal weight, but I was in the process, it was a good feeling! And I could enjoy myself.
Whatever dress you get you will feel beautiful and you will look beautiful!
Let your friend know the size you need so you have time to get it altered if you need, because you will continue to lose weight!
Don't Stress: if you stress too much about stuff it will be harder to lose weight, Stress can cause weight gain, so relax and have a great time.

For those of you that needed to get a plus size dress for the wedding. Where did you purchase it from.

I've been looking online all morning and the fact that it has to be a certain color and size is narrowing down the choices. Not to mention that the wedding is next month and she hasn't really told me anything. To make it worse I've called her 3 times this morning and it went straight to voice mail........

You may want to look at the "bridesmaid" dresses at David's Bridal. I had a really great experience with them getting my Wedding Dress (size 16). They carry a gorgeous assortment of plus sizes.

If you are looking for something less "Wedding" and more hip... try torrid.com

Why do matron of honor and bridesmaids dresses have to be the same for every shape and size? Some of the best looking bridal parties I have seen have had differnent dresses, just same color or even the different shades of the color. Would with with shoes too.

Well I just talked to the bride and I can pick out my own dress. IT just has to be a gown and a light shade of green. It's so funny becasue I was out for dinner last night and drove by a dress barn and they had THE PERFECT DRESS THAT I WOULD HAVE WORN. Sage green with a little Bolero jacket only thing was it had about 4 rows of fabric. The problem was it was short. They had one that was long but it was pink and didn'thave a jacket. So i look online and they don't have a website that you can order from............back to the drawing board.

Their is a David's bridal near me and I'll take a look at torrid

My cousin is getting married in May. There are eight of us. We had a choices in styles but all ended up getting the same dress in sizes 0 - 26. My friend is about 5' and 300lbs at least. She can wear the same dress as the 12 year old in a size 0. They make some very flexible styles these days.

I feel your pain. I'm going to be the MoH in my sister's wedding this fall. I'm so grateful that I at least have a good 6 months until then. I cried to my husand after I told my sister that I would do it, and actually said to him "I'm going to look like a beast in a dress!" I'm calmed down a bit since then, but I am very nervous to do dress shopping.

I truly feel where u are coming from. I am going to be a bridesmaid in my brother's wedding on Aug. 21st. The only issue is we have to be measure this coming weekend for our dresses. I have lost about 21 lbs already looking to lose at least another 35-45 before wedding. So I'm going to really have to have some alterations done once my dress gets back. I want to look hot going down the aisle.

If you can find a longer dress...wear shoes that are comfortable - no one will see them if the dress is long enough :-)

And please don't miss out on the fun that can be had at a wedding because of weight -- I WAS the bride, and was still larger than I wanted, everyone WAS looking at me, and you know what? it was still a fantastic day.

Your friend wants you their for her special day -- you can do it -- good luck on the shopping trip thought :-)
