OK, so I'm late on this, but I thought I should respond since my wedding is rapidly approaching. Honestly, I'm not over weight, and I'm not skinny...I'm kindof an athletic body type that gained some "happy" weight since I met my FI & got engaged. I didn't realize it until I had to go up a pant size. That was really depressing for me. But, I realized that I had to be realistic & not put any additional pressure on myself - like planning a wedding isn't enough!


So, begining about November, I really made a commitment to myself to do things that made me feel good. Mind you, this is after I tried on & bought the dress in June. My dress just made me feel like a goddess - and I think that's really important. I power walk/run 3 morning a week. I've recently started a pilates class on Thurs nights & a yoga class on Sat mornings. I've found the more I do, the more I want to do.


Long post...sorry! But, I guess what I want to say is that we all want to look our best on our wedding day - but why do we wait until this time to take care of ourselves?? I think it is healthiest to do something reasonable in terms of diet & excercise that you can maintain over time. Extreme measures are never good.


My best tips are to fill "blank spaces" in your day with little mini-workouts. Like, when I'm brushing my teeth or blow drying my hair in the morning, I do squats and plies. I lunge across the bedroom to my dresser. I do pushups immediately when I get out of bed in the morning. These little efforts will help you a lot in the long run.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
