Believe me, dear. In 40 years you will look at those pictures and marvel at how thin and young you looked! I should know!
Can I just say how quick we are to blame our body when it is the fashion choice creating the issue?You did not have back fat. You wore a dress that forced skin up and over an intentionally tight band. The tight band was a fashion necessity to prevent you from flashing guests all night.On any given morning, depending on the pants I select, my waistline can change from slim and sleek to slight roll to complete muffin top. My weight did not change, the size of my waistline did not increase. The CLOTHING made the difference.You looked lovely. Quite honestly, move on. You no longer need to love your dress. Focus on the significance of the day, the look on your faces, and the lives you are building. If you want depressing and/or perspective, think Houston.
