    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 (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).

                  I have this issue. I am taking natural herbal supplement. Only take it when I look puffy in the front. It really helps me.

                    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.
