For obvious reasons, losing weight quickly is usually the number one goal of most brides-to-be. There are hundreds of “lose weight fast” diets and work out regimens to try. There’s the Master Cleanse, the grapefruit diet, Atkins, and the Paleo Diet to name a few. And while these often work in the short run, they may also leave you feeling tired, hunger and frustrated. And being hungry, tired and frustrated while wedding planning is a recipe for disaster. I spoke with fitness coach Jeffery Rice, who runs a Bridal Boot Camp in Philadelphia. He had some great tips for brides who want to lose weight fast for their wedding. Even if you can’t afford a Bridal Boot Camp or a personal trainer, Jeffery’s tips apply to everyone and are worth reading. 1.

For most brides, after pulling together the money to purchase their dream dress, it can come as shock to realize how expensive it can be to have it altered. And the search for affordable wedding dress alterations can leave you frustrated and hopeless. As annoying as it may be, almost all wedding gowns will need to be hemmed and taken in at the waist. Also, if the dress has any sort of a train, it will need to be bustled (a little hook or hooks that pick up the back of the dress allowing you to dance and move without your dress being stepped on). Changing the neckline (to a ‘sweetheart neckline’ for example) and adding embellishment (belts, sequins, etc.) will add even more to the bill. If you live in a big city, you’ll get quotes anywhere from $400 up to over $1000 like I did.
