Any 2009 brides here?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married February 11th in the Mayan Riviera. I've been on weight watchers for the past two months. I have lost a total of 17 pounds. I'm only 4 pounds away from my first 10% target.

 

Anyway, just wanted to say hi.

Congratulations Heather!!!! thewave.gif

 

 

I am a Feb 14, 2009 bride and we're getting married in Zihuatanejo, MX. I have done WW in the past and I originally lost about 30 pounds on it so I know it works. Right now I have cut sugar from my diet in an attempt to get a little leaner. We're going look great in that dress!!

Hi there :) Jan. 17, 2009 bride here. I'm not doing WW, but have been off and on it my whole life. Right now I'm trying to be healthy, get in my 5 Fruits and Veggies and at least 8 cups of water a day...also trying to eat the recomended 25grams of fiber (thank god I love beans!) and I've started doing Walk Away the Pounds Video's at home. Not sure how much of what is going to work, but I'm trying and I do notice a difference in my energy!

 

Congrats on the 17lb loss!! That's awesome! :)

I'm an '09er and on WW as well. I've been going about 2 months too. I'm down 10.8! Yay! I won't let myself even look at dresses until I'm down 25. Now that's an incentive!

 

17 pounds it great! Keep it up!

I'm Feb 28 09 :) I haven't officially started a diet but I've been eating a lot of fruit lately which has helped me drop a few lbs. plus going to the gym.

Hi! I am a May 2009 bride. I am also trying to shed some pounds before the big day. I have battled with weight all my life so I know how hard it is to loose weight. So Congrats on your weight loss. I have dropped a size since I started really being serious about working out which was the begining of April. Keep in mind that loosing weight after you bought your dress can become an issue because alterations can get expensive. Last year I dropped 2 sizes after ordering a BM dress for my pal's wedding and the alterations would have cost more than the dress it self!!!! Thankfully the bridal store was able to give me a new one, although it was off the rack so it had been used for fittings. But good luck with your weight loss and Congrats!!!!

Well you guys have me feeling a little guilty. I'm getting married in April of 2009. I'm trying to exercise but I don't particularly eat that well. Maybe I should be dieting too! haha

My logic is that those dresses really tuck you in and make you look skinny right? Isn't that the purpose? I haven't bought a dress yet so who knows

Wow there are a lot of us.

 

I battled anorexia for about 10 years when I was younger, then once I hit 20- I got really depressed and gained close to 100 pounds- making me around 240. I know- wowers!!!! Thankfully I met my fiance then and he put me on the right course.

 

Now, I'm down to 192, and I have about 35 pounds to go. I'm pretty tall and I am built like a football player [my dad used to be a pro] so I'm not suppose to be too skinny. :)

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
