What bride isn't on a wedding diet plan? All brides want to look their absolute best in their wedding dress. How about you?
I say do it safely and intelligently!
But the weight lose plan you choose to use depends on what you feel comfortable with and how long you plan to be on a weight loss system.
According to brides I have worked with... the ones that did the best at losing weight chose plans they liked and could follow.
So choose a weight loss plan you like and can stick with.
Weight loss plans that allow you to eat from all food groups, tend to be easier to stick with. Some programs to consider for your wedding diet are...
Couple this with an exercise plan that has cardio and weight training. You may be one who likes running to lose weight or jogging. If you don't like running or jogging, you may be like many who have found that walking to lose weight is more their style.
You can join a local health club or exercise program for extra incentive to make sure you exercise regularly. I have seen amazing results from brides who used a trainer to help them target and tone specific parts of the body. But you can do this on your own.
Do exercises that concentrate on certain areas of the body. Find exercises that work out the arms and the back. These areas are the focal point in a strapless, halter and off the shoulder wedding dress.
The other areas of concentration would be the midsection. Old fashion side bends, twists and sit ups, are just a few exercises, that work at trimming down the waistline.
If you are wearing a slim fitted wedding gown or mermaid wedding dress, then you must concentrate on slimming the hips and thighs, to look good in this style of gown.
So sticking to your wedding diet plan and a regular exercise program are key to looking your best for your wedding day.
Remember on your wedding day all eyes are on you! That day you will need to have a lot of energy, because you will be on your feet all day long. So the more fit you are, the better you will enjoy your wedding day!
When losing weight for a wedding, you have a dilemma as to when to order your wedding gown and what size. I say... it depends on how much you plan to lose on your wedding diet before the wedding.
Most experts suggest ordering your gown the size you measure when you place the order.
Usually it is best to place the order of your gown 6 to 9 months before your wedding. Your gown can be altered to take it in the excess amount. And I agree with the experts.
But, if you feel you will go down at least 3 sizes and you insist on ordering your gown a smaller size, go down only one size, and no more than that.
If on your wedding diet plan you plan to lose no more that 2 - 3 dress sizes... your gown, (especially a strapless wedding gown) can be taken in that amount of sizes without distorting most designs.
Any design with armholes and or sleeves are limited in how much you can make the gown smaller before it starts to distort the armhole and make the resetting of the sleeve difficult.
When you order your gown consult with the alterations specialist about your design and if it can be re-sized.
But if you are planning to lose a major amount of weight over 50 lbs... especially because of gastric by-pass surgery, then you need to order your dress about 4 months prior to the wedding.
When a person has surgery to lose weight, they tend to lose a large amount of weight very quickly.
If you are on a wedding diet plan or having surgery to help you lose weight...you need to go to a bridal shop early.
So what are your buying options....
"Planning ahead of time when you are on a wedding diet plan is key to looking your best on your wedding day and finding the perfect wedding dress for you!"
