Are you getting married and do you feel you are limited to the choice of wedding dresses because of your figure? Perhaps you feel you have to cover up because your arms are flabby? Or maybe you cannot reveal your back because that is flabby too? Or maybe you would love to wear a figure hugging fitted wedding dress but cannot because the dress of your dreams does not fit or look right on you? Does this leave you feeling disheartened?

Every bride wants to look her best on the most important day of her life and to look stunning in her dress for her special day. Brides also want to feel and look amazing on their honeymoon.

If you want to look and feel absolutely WOW on your Special Day then follow some of my basic tips. These basic tips will help you fit into the dress of your dreams. Not only will you get into shape and feel confident on your wedding day, you will also feel amazing for your honeymoon.

Set a Goal:

The first step is to set yourself a goal and have a clear vision of how much weight or inches you want to lose for your wedding. Also have a set workout plan. If your main goal is to lose weight then I recommend to get started with your exercise plan at least six, nine or even a year before the big day. The more time you give yourself the better. Taking these small steps will really help you to reach your ultimate goal.

Think Positively:
Change your mindset and think positively. I believe our thoughts are very powerful. Envision yourself fitting into your wedding dress you just bought or that bikini for your beach honeymoon holiday. You can achieve almost anything if you believe in yourself. Tell yourself you are an amazing person and you will achieve your goal of looking amazing on your big day.

Correct Nutrition:
Nutrition is very important when wanting to lose fat or sculpt and tone the body. You will get better and quicker results if you combine healthy eating with your exercise routine. A healthy and fitter body is not about starving yourself, it is about making the right choices and organised / planning and preparing what you eat. This is a crucial part of weight loss. We are what we eat!

It is essential to eat natural real foods. Limit processed foods, sugars and salts. Start your day with a healthy protein based breakfast such as; porridge, scrambled eggs or omelettes with spinach. Replace all sugary drinks and coffees with water. Water is essential for good health and our wellbeing.

Include Interval training, short bursts of high intensity training (HIIT) into your workout routine. Weight training will also help brides to get a leaner, tighter, sculpted body. Lifting weights will help to combat those wobbly parts and areas of your body. Remember to be patient and keep consistent with your training and nutrition. This is the key to reaching any health and wellbeing goals.

Hire A Personal Trainer:
If you are really at a lost where to start and are very low on motivation then invest in a personal trainer. Having the one-to-one guidance and support of a fitness professional could make all the difference when it comes to achieving those pre-wedding fitness goals.

Personal Trainers can help you to keep motivated and you will feel a lot more confident in using the free weights and machines in the gym. You could also try partnering up with your fiancé and try workouts together such as bootcamp , a class or maybe jogging. This will help you both feel and look good for your big day and honeymoon.
