Every bride (and groom) wants to look their best on the “big day” – myself included. You can bet that I’ll be eating clean, keeping up on workouts and probably trying every face mask, deep conditioning hair treatment (just started Moroccan Oil last week!) and nail growth polish I can get my hands on in the weeks leading up to my wedding.
Sometimes, a wedding is all the motivation you need to start some healthy habits, but sometimes, it can also swing a little far on the other side. I’m talking brides losing a significant amount of weight pre-wedding. (Not a few pounds due to stress, etc.) First of all, I don’t always understand it. Wouldn’t you want to look and feel your best all the time? (I do – you can call me vain!) Secondly, it doesn’t seem like looking like a different person on your wedding day would be desirable. And if it is all for one day, is it all lost the day after the wedding?
My views are this: I’m all for people getting healthy and in-shape and feeling their best. For life, not just for a wedding.
Thoughts? Did you start a new, healthy regimen before your wedding?
