10 Steps to Getting Your Wedding Body Ready

Guest Post by: Cassie Brewer

Brides all over the world want to look stunning on their special day, and for many that means getting in shape. In the UK, for example, around 1 in 10 women lose four stone (or 56 pounds) before they walk down the aisle. If you’re getting married soon, here are a few tips to help you safely sculpt a gorgeous wedding body:

Make a Plan – and Stick To It

Safely losing weight means slowly losing weight. Doctors say that you should lose no more than 1 percent of your weight each week – which for the average woman is between 1 and 2 pounds. If you want to lose a large amount of weight, you’ll have to plan ahead. Consider a 12-month challenge or other fitness regimen to get you wedding fit!

Get Some Early Exercise

This tip is about logistics, but it’s still very important. Planning a wedding is a lot of hard work; more often than not, your days are filled with fittings and meetings. If you aren’t careful, your fitness plans can fall by the wayside. Do your best to work out first thing in the morning, and you’ll be more likely to see results.

Say No to Booze, Salt, and Sugar

The months that span your engagement are usually filled with special occasions, from your bridal shower to your bachelorette party. Indulging during these events is fine, but you should avoid alcohol, salt, and sugar as much as possible before your wedding. These foods will not only wreak havoc on your body, they can make your skin break out, too! Just say no.

Two Words: Eat Enough

While it is important to avoid unhealthy foods while you’re getting ready for your wedding, it is also of great importance that you eat enough. Crash diets are terribly dangerous – and they will also make you incredibly cranky, which can put a strain on all your relationships during the planning process. Keep the bridezilla at bay and make sure you eat lunch.

Coordinate Your Fitness and Fashion

Here’s a tip about the perfect wedding body: focus on the parts of you that your guests will see. You can work different muscle groups to make your dress work to the greatest effect; if your dress is strapless, for example, you’ll want to tone those shoulders. You can get a full-body workout, too, but pay special attention to your wedding silhouette.

Mix Up Your Workouts

While this can help you get ready for your wedding day, you can use this particular tip throughout your life. Make sure you try a variety of different exercises so that your body is always working in a different way. Not only will this make you healthier, it will ensure that you don’t get burned out on the same old exercise routine.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking water is important every day, but when you’re getting in shape and planning a wedding it is even more imperative. Water helps revitalize your body, keeping you alert through all the wedding planning decisions. Water is also a natural way to keep your skin looking healthy and vibrant, which will make you look even more beautiful when you say “I do.”

Get a Dazzling Smile

The perfect wedding body isn’t just about the neck down. Remember, you’ll be looking at these photos for years to come – don’t you want your smile to be at its most beautiful? Brides-to-be should consider professional teeth whitening before their wedding day. This way, they’ll be sure that the gorgeous smile their photographer captures is one they will want to cherish forever.

Schedule Your Beauty Appointments Carefully

Some brides seek out other beauty procedures, like botox or fillers, before they walk down the aisle. This is perfectly fine – but if you don’t time it just right, you could be in for some trouble. Avoid bruising, skin irritation, or allergic reactions by scheduling any beauty procedures a few weeks before the ceremony. You can look your best without any worries.

Don’t Forget the Self-Care

By now you may know that planning a wedding isn’t easy. The stress of creating this dream celebration can put a real strain on many brides, and if they aren’t careful, that strain can start to show. Make sure you take time to relax in the months leading up to the wedding.

Remember, the best wedding body is one that is happy! As long as you’re smiling and in love on the big day, everyone will think you’re the most beautiful woman in the room.
