If you are dieting or anticipating reducing weight before your wedding then still get a dress fitting done well in advance and allow for changes to be made right up to the date of your wedding.
Don't leave the overall choice and fitting of your wedding dress too late as there have been many occasions where brides have been stressed on their wedding day trying to get their dress sorted.
As with any other aspect of your wedding you should try various different wedding dresses to see which one looks the best on you. Get wedding magazines and books and have a look at what other brides are wearing to see what the current fashions are and to find a style that suits you.
It is only through doing this research and trying the dresses on that you will find the one with which you will be happy. There are so many styles available that you have a virtually unlimited choice and quite often it is a lot easier to find a pre-made dress than to get one specifically made.
You can always have a standard dress modified to your requirements once you know that it is what you want.
Generally this is a cheaper option than getting a dressmaker to make a dress specifically for you as it is not until you try the dress on that you can be 100% sure whether you like it or not.
You can also be assured of the quality of the dress making and the details with a ready made dress and you still have the option to add accessories or make any changes that you see fit.
