The day you have dreamt about since you were a little girl is looming nearer. So ideally you want everything to go as smoothly as possible. You do not want any unnecessary dramas such as not being able to fit into your dress after all the meticulous planning, so if you have a healthy plan you can adopt, this can prevent such occurrences. 

Keep Fit and Active

It doesn’t need to be a huge milestone like going from doing no exercise to suddenly running a marathon. Just small manageable weekly goals will be adequate. You could do things such as 10 minutes of active yoga once a day to get the body moving, or taking your dog for a walk is an excellent way to keep active. It enables you to get out into the fresh air, clear your head, get some exercise and spend even more time running around with your fluffy companion.

You Are What You Eat

Ideally you want to be eating healthy all the time, but when you are busy with work most days, you sometimes just want something really quick and easy to throw together in the evenings, such as meal plans fromNo Evil Foods. A plant based diet can be beneficial for both your skin and immune system, which will be ideal for keeping nice and healthy before the big day. 

A plant based diet provides an abundance of fruit and vegetables, which is certainly healthy. You would also be including foods rich in protein like tofu, beans and a variety of grains. Another encouraging benefit is that it promotes healthy looking skin and nourishes hair which is certainly a positive, when you want to look your best on your wedding day. 

The Power of Foods 

It might be worth while eating less sugary, carbohydrate foods and instead replacing these withfoods that can help alleviate bloating such as bananas, kiwis, avocados, oranges and pistachios. This will be particularly beneficial if you do not want to obtain that ‘pregnant look’ as you try to squeeze into your dress. These foods control the level of sodium in your body which affects water retention which is what causes that bloating feeling.  

Purchasing a Wedding Dress A Size Bigger 

When you purchase your dress it might be worthwhile going for a slightly bigger size. If you were to fluctuate weight wise before the big day, you will not have a complete meltdown if you find you cannot get into the dress as it can always just be taken in a bit by the seamstress. 

Organization Will Reduce Stress Levels

Being as organized as possible will ensure you keep on top of everything and are less likely to get stressed. This could prevent you stress eating where you are more likely to eat junk food, which is certainly not going to help you feel better in the long run.
