Whether it’s a more-toned physique, better skin or glossy hair, no one works harder for results than a bride in the lead up to her wedding. In order to certify it we spoke to nutritionist, bride-to-be and founder of TheBridalClinic.com.au and TheHealthClinic.com.au Pip Reed to find out how we can live like a bride-to-be all year round.

First Things First, Set Yourself a Target

Aim for a date in two to three months’ time and write a list of what you want to achieve by then. The trick is to be as specific as possible, and break your program down into weekly and fortnightly goals — think drinking two litres of water a day or eating one cup of veggies with every dinner — this will make sticking to your program easier. Pip admits, whether you’re getting married or not, short term goals throughout the duration of your main goal are best due to they will help you reassess how you’re going and keep you on track for the big day.

Dedication Is Key

Brides aren’t going to let a silly little thing like Christmas, Easter or a birthday get in the way of their goals. Of course, they perhaps have a couple of wines and a slice of cake but when the end goal is fitting into that beautiful wedding dress they think carefully about when and where they give in to temptation.

Seek Answers When Things Aren’t Working

If your four-day-a-week training regime isn’t producing results, or your Paleo diet isn’t changing your weight there’s simply no time to continue for another two to three weeks to see if anything changes. Brides need results and often take action by seeking professional advice to assure they have everything covered.

Saying ”I Do” to the Bridesmaid Dresses

Saying ''I Do'' to the Bridesmaid Dresses

Poor bridesmaids dresses, they get such a bad rap. As we’ve learned from movies like 27 Dresses, brides sometimes deviate from their typical sense of style for having a perfectly coordinated wedding. Think about it, a bride’s life is full of questions like: Do the invitations match your theme? Are the flowers the right shade of pink? Do the linens match your color scheme?

Our brains become programmed to concentrate on coordinating. I can see where a bride could get lost in the obsession of matching everything that when it comes to picking out bridesmaids dresses, your usual fashion sense gets a little clouded. Designs that would typically repulse you are suddenly “amazing” because you finally found something that matches your theme and scheme perfectly. Hey, I can see it happening.

Saying ''I Do'' to the Bridesmaid Dresses

But if you’re shopping without too much criteria, you’ll quickly realize there are hundreds of actually pretty options.

Fortunately for my six bridesmaids and two junior bridesmaids, I had totally nothing about my wedding’s theme or colors decided before I picked my/their dresses. Therefore, I was shopping with a very open mind! All I knew was I wanted something figure-flattering and fitting for the beach. Oh, and for at least the grown-girls, I wanted them long. I just personally consider it looks nicer.

Saying ''I Do'' to the Bridesmaid Dresses

After several weeks of endlessly browsing online, I found myself continuously going back to the designs by Joanna August. They’re so pretty. The poly chiffon fabric is elegant and chic. It also is one of the few long dresses that was still light enough to wear on a warm summer beach. I just love how the skirts flow when you walk in them. Above all, they have gorgeous designs that fit all disparate body types. I sent an email out to each of my friends individually thus they could be honest with how they felt about the designer I chose.

Each bridesmaid picked out the style she liked best. I had no preference. I literally liked them all. Plus, I think the variety of styles will photograph beautifully.

Saying ''I Do'' to the Bridesmaid Dresses

The most difficult part of the process was deciding on a color. Joanna August has an amazing number of colors to choose from. I couldn’t decide if I wanted all of the girls in the same color, each in a different color or if we should do a mixture of a couple colors. My bridesmaids were so easy-going. They just kept telling me to pick whatever I want. Finally I opted for having them all wear a champagne-like color in order to have freedom to play with my flower colors.

I cannot wait to see my friends walk down the aisle in their gorgeous gowns! Also, I’m secretly hoping they’ll let me borrow their dresses after the wedding.

5 Wedding Surprises Every Bride Should Prepare For

5 Wedding Surprises Every Bride Should Prepare For

1. You won’t spend a lot of time with your new spouse.

This sounds odd, but it’s something you should prepare for.

Getting ready will take up a huge portion of your day, and you definitely won’t be doing that together. You may mingle together during your reception, but it’s common to get pulled apart.

With so many people to see, it may be easier to tackle them separately.

If this time apart makes you nervous, there are a few ways to get alone-time that are easy to fit into any wedding schedule.

If you decide to do a first look (check out the pros and cons >>), this is a great opportunity to get some moments together. After the first look, consider having a 1 to 2-hour photo session for just the two of you.

After your ceremony has ended, have 10 minutes to yourselves. You just got married. Take it in! Assign one person to come and get you when the 10 minutes is up—that way there are no unwanted interruptions.

2. You’ll experience a huge power trip (and will probably enjoy it).

You are the BRIDE. This means you call the shots all day.

If a vendor does something you don’t want, you can tell them to fix it. If a guest gets out of control, you can kick them out.

This is the sort of power you dream about—enjoy it! Just don’t become a Bridezilla.

With great power, comes great responsibility.

3. You won’t want to eat.

But you have to. You’ll have nerves all morning and afternoon, which will make food and water sound unappealing. But those nerves will also make that third mimosa sound ideal—be careful, brides!

You have to eat. Not only do I want you to remain conscious throughout your ceremony, but you need energy to keep you going all day.

Assign a bridesmaid to your food intake. Don’t snap at them when they force a granola bar down your throat.

4. You won’t dance all that much.

This one definitely bums me out. Unfortunately, you’re required to speak to as many guests as you possibly can—even if this leads into the dance hour.

Social hours make mingling easy to accomplish, so consider inserting one between the ceremony and dinner.

Note: If you have a social hour, all photos need to be taken before the ceremony. But more time with your friends and family will make this schedule change worthwhile.

5. Your feet are going to kill.

Photos, mingling, dancing…it’s no wonder!

Choose your shoes based on style and comfort. Wear them around the house as much as possible before the wedding day to break them in.

I also recommend finding a great pair of flats for your reception.
