Bloaty DW brides?

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else worried about being completely bloated since you'll be 'indulging' in bevvies and food at the resort that you probably haven't been prior to the wedding?

 

I've been trying to eat super healthy, working my buns off at the gym every morning and swearing off booze till the wedding to make sure I look good on the wedding trip/big day. But once I get there, I'm totally afraid I'll get bloated in the 5 days we're there before the wedding!!

 

I have one friend and her boyfriend that I can count on to hit them gym with me during the trip and I'll *try* to limit the booze shots.gif(probably just stay away from the 'fruity' ones) but are there any natural or over the counter medications/pills/magic potions that can help?

I keep thinking about this too!!! I'm being sooo disciplined until June (it's actually been really easy), but I wonder what I'm going to do in the days up to the wedding. I am bringing my shoes/stuff for the gym but the drinks are killer! and the buffets!! omg.

 

I havent' heard of anything, but I'm going to check back to this to see if anyone says anything!!: )

i was very worried about this too... so i tried to eat super healthy the 2 days we were there before the wedding.

 

my only advice is be careful with the fruity drinks. at home, i hardly eat any sugar during the day, so all the fruity drinks (2-3 a day) really gave me a stomachache. and it took me about 4 days to figure out what the heck was wrong with me. lol, so don't be a bride with a belly ache! it stinks.

YES...super worried about it..no matter how much I diet, eat right and excersice, my body is always off while on vacation. So YES...extremely worried about bloating and for me, excercise usually doesn't help with severe bloating...fingers crossed for all of us :)

Thanks for the advice. This is really something to consider b/c those fruity drinks can be enticing in the hot sun, but I would much rather hold off than have my dress not fit for the wedding.

I totally agree. stay away from the delicious fruity drinks. Drink lots of water. And good for you -- keep up the workouts while you're there! Don't want your hard work to be ruined by a few days. BUT, I am an advocate of allowing yourself to a treat maybe one whole day during your trip. As long as you jump back into your exercise mode and diet mode asap.

You ladies read my mind! I bloat very easily (and then my fingers swell and I can barely get my damn ring off which is a WHOLE other wedding issue I foresee).

Ooohh, what's it called??


And Tonir - I hear you on the rings!! Mine are snug as it is to make sure I don't lose them, nevermind when I'm bloated and it's super hot down south! Oy...

I also know that, for me, eating carbs makes me hold onto weight. I plan on trying to skip most carbs for two days before the wedding (except a little low-carb alcohol). Also I'm going to stay a mile away from salt (and pickles haha which are a weakness). Then make sure to drink as much water as possible the day before, which really helps shed some water weight.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
