Your beloved has asked you to marry him. What a wonderful day that was. Now you have the daunting task to finding that perfect wedding gown. Not that the task of locating your ideal dress isn’t hard enough, you also have to shed a few pounds to fit into it. The clock is ticking and you don’t have much time left. You need some real answers with some solid solutions attached. You need serious help, and you need it fast.
Drown the Weight in Healthy Hydration
It might be obvious to some people, but to others it is not – drinking lots of water can help you lose a few pounds quickly, which is perfect for your pre-nuptial celebration. In addition, a hydrated body is a more beautiful one. Supple skin is less prone to acne, dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles. As if losing weight from drinking water weren’t good enough, doing so can actually create a more beautiful bride out of you in the meantime.
*TIP: Drink ice cold water to increase your metabolism and warm water to decrease your appetite.
You Are Sweet Enough so Cut Out the Sugar
Did you know that sugar and sugary beverages can have a drastically negative effect on your overall health, not to mention your weight? If you seriously want to get the last few pounds off before you pick a wedding dress, you might want to consider cutting back on the sweets. Sugar, when not used properly by the body, can turn into excess fat. That is probably the last thing you want when choosing the perfect gown for your big day.
*TIP: Check the sugar levels of all foods, as some items might surprise you by their nutritional facts.
Practice Adding Spice before the Big Night
You are going to be all hot and bothered during and after the wedding ceremony, so why not get spicy beforehand? When you eat spicy foods you have a greater chance of losing weight. Foods that have that tang also have a chemical known as capsaicin, which actually increases the metabolic rate and promotes quicker weight loss. What’s the worst that could happen? You learn a few new recipes to share with your betrothed?
*TIP: Be careful if you are sensitive to spicy foods. Try capsaicin pills or supplements instead.
Become More Active than Usual
If it is not like you to be active throughout the day, the moments leading up to your wedding should serve as inspiration to change that. If you are an active person, now is the time to step your game up. Being an active person is the kind of habit that burns fat fast. Try to work out until you break a sweat at least once daily. Add that with a balanced diet and you should be able to achieve your goals before fitting day.
*TIP: Fitness trainers usually recommend at least 30 minutes of strenuous, heart-pounding exercise per day to reach optimal physical health.
Get Plenty of Beauty Rest
You might have the habit of exercising, planning, running errands, and otherwise, but that will not help you lose weight before the wedding. In fact, stocking up on oxidative stress (which is what happens when your body is not at rest) can actually increase your body weight. More than that, it can decrease your vitality and make you look like a disinterested bride. To put it simply: get plenty of beauty rest before the wedding for a blissful glow and a body that reminds the groom why he proposed to you in the first place.
*TIP: It is recommended that adults get 6 to 8 hours of sleep each night for proper body and brain functioning.
Try Fast-Acting Diet Pills
When all else fails and the traditional methods don’t work for you, it may be your best bet to try dietary supplements. While there are some supplements that are not made by reputable companies, there are also pills that come from brands that have been trusted in the industry for years. Relying on a dietary supplement to lose a few extra pounds is the ideal use for these pills. No matter what though, be sure to use them responsibly and as directed on the label.
*TIP: Combine your dietary supplement regimen with a health and well balanced diet for optimal results.

So, you've been invited to a wedding and are fretting the age-old question, 'what to wear'? And to top it off, it's an evening wedding....are you sure you have something in the closet to fit the occasion? Or should you grab the credit card and hit the shopping mall?
The so-called rules for a wedding differ depending on what time of the day the wedding is being held. One must take into account whether or not the wedding ceremony will be formal or informal, yet in general, you'll want to wear a dress. Pants and /or a suit are also acceptable for a woman. The one thing to remember is that any color but white is acceptable- you DON'T want to be wearing a dress that is the same color as the bride's wedding gown. It may seem old-school, and in fact, it is. Yet it's also good etiquette; no need to be competing with the bride for title of the most gorgeous white dress at a wedding when it's her wedding.
Rules? What rules? What in the world are you talking about??
If it's an informal evening wedding ceremony, a cocktail dress is just what the doctor ordered. In case you're not sure, a cocktail dress is a 'fancier' dress; not a sun dress- a simple little black dress, (not full-length) will do. The same attire holds true in the case of the wedding ceremony being semi-formal. And remember, just because we recommend you wear black to the wedding, doesn't mean you can't wear another color of your choice.
If it is a 'casual' wedding, you will still want to err on the side of caution; best to wear a simple sun dress. Please, please, please- don't wear shorts, jeans or anything that you wouldn't wear to a job interview.
In the event that the wedding ceremony will be a formal evening and/or black-tie affair, it's recommended that you go with a cocktail dress (though there is nothing that says it can't be a short cocktail dress). To top it off and make it formal/black-tie-ish, make sure bling it up a bit, with some beads, accessories and a wrap (it probably gets a wee bit chilly in the evening to be wearing a cocktail dress, no matter where you live).
If you find yourself invited to an ultra-formal or white tie (yes, such a term exists) wedding ceremony in the evening, you will want to have a long gown with extra bling- diamonds, possibly dangling earrings, furs, etc. In the case of jewelry for a white-tie wedding, more is better, and whether you like the style or not, larger/longer is also better. Of course, we are certainly not telling you that you need to dress in a style or manner that you don't enjoy. When it comes for what shoes to wear to such a ceremony, pumps are a good choice.
What about hats and/or gloves?
Though it may be a bit rare to see hats and/or gloves at a wedding ceremony, it is still perfectly acceptable to wear one, the other or both. Hats make for a good choice if it might be windy at the ceremony. It's best not to wear full-length gloves (either to the elbow or shoulder) with any dress except one that is strapless or sleeveless. Of course, if the wedding ceremony is religious (although this would be doubtful, if it's an evening ceremony), give the sleeves or strapless dress a miss. What's more, although we call it a 'white-tie' wedding, we could also call it a 'white-gloves' wedding; white gloves work best at an ultra-formal event. And remember to take the gloves off when eating.
Finally, a clutch or small purse makes for a great accessory at an evening event; this is true for weddings, as well.
