Sketches of dresses for Jenna Bush’s bridesmaids – Photo Courtesy: Timothy Horrigan
A couple of months before her friend’s wedding, a bridesmaid is invited to the bride’s apartment to get a sneak peek at the dress. The designer is there too.
The sketches are amazing. They flaunt the bride’s every curve in a fashion-forward yet charming way.
Then the waist on the sketch is cinched. The bride-to-be serves apples for dinner. She’s on the wedding diet.
People who are about to get married often do this to make themselves look and feel at their very best on the date. And it’s not just because of the photos. Such events give the people the justifiable need to be ready inside and out.
While many brides and grooms would go for the starvation diet, it certainly does not provide the energy needed to function normally, less so when one is planning a wedding.
In cases like this, perhaps the wedding planner, the bridesmaid, the groom, or the bride herself could suggest a weight loss boot camp. Such a camp would also prove to be great for bonding with the wedding entourage.
Weight Loss Boot Camp
The great thing about some weight loss boot camps is that they focus on specific exercises and sports for enthusiasts. There are yoga weight loss camps and Pilates weight loss camps. Check out hotels that offer bachelor and bachelorette party fitness camps. Look for pictures of the fitness instructors on websites. If they look like the bride or groom, the better chances that the party will find the weight loss boot camp relatable. Is either the bride or groom beach lovers? Maybe a surfing weight loss camp would be great before beach wedding. Brides and bridesmaids can also shape up and practice their flirting skills with pole dancing weight loss boot camps. Outdoorsmen and women can go on a hiking weight loss boot camp.
Intensive and Fun
When signing up for a weight loss boot camp, though, the planner should look for one that’s both intensive and fun. Some weight loss boot camps do not require participants to join all the activities. A planner, the maid of honor, or the best man should also ask about any pre-requirements. Some will ask participants to start doing exercises a couple of weeks before.
Doctors also recommend starting a personal weight loss boot camp at least six months before the wedding day. This will allow for an easier pace where a bride or groom can lose one to two pounds a week at an hour a day. Physical instructors can also help brides and grooms focus on areas that they need to work on based on what they want to during the wearing. Abdominal workouts for a smaller waistline, for example.
Get Your Mind Set for the Wedding
But as with every camp, physical exercises, food planned and approved by nutritionists and lifestyle talks can help a bride and groom get their minds set for the wedding and the marriage ahead. The presence of family and friends and the end-game certainly adds a new layer to making changes in one’s lifestyle and in one’s view of food and health.
