You may have envisioned your wedding day since you were a little girl. Or, maybe not—maybe you didn’t even expect to get married. Whether you planned on tying the knot or not, you probably didn’t plan on being overweight for your big day. You probably didn’t plan on being overweight at all—life just has a way of doing that to people. But here you are, not exactly at your goal weight, and thinking about how you want those wedding pictures to be perfect. If you’re thinking about crash dieting before your big day, honestly, you’re better off asking your makeup artist to do some contouring, getting into some spanx and choosing a dress that highlights your best features and covers up the things you’re improving on. Here is why you shouldn’t crash diet before your wedding.
You’re already under stress
Planning a wedding is already tremendously stressful when you’re not dieting. You cannot handle the stress of making sure you meal prep in addition to making it to all these meetings with caterers and florists.
