Photographed from every angle, the eyes of family and friends on you… if you have any body insecurities, they will be amplified when a bride-to-be is in search of the perfect wedding dress. Yet with stress mounting, lists never-ending and a bottle of wine just one cork away, resolve can soon been crumpled.

So it was with great interest that we took a look at The Wedding Dress Diet Plan, which saw founder Nicky lose 3 stone in 12 weeks, going from 11.8 stone to a happy and confident bride. Available in e-book form, we asked Nicky about her weight-loss journey.

“It was February 2011 and I had just booked my October wedding in Cyprus. I distinctly remember looking in the mirror and feeling utterly down and depressed,” says Nicky. “It was going to be one of the most important days of my life and yet I was worried about what I was going to look like.”


Finding ‘the dress’
Excited about the day, Nicky had set her heart on wearing a short fitted dress. “After hours and hours of research and visiting lots of wedding shops I finally found the perfect dress. However, I only just fit into a size 14-16. I was horrified - I was literally hanging over the top of the dress. I felt very unhappy and unconfident. This certainly wasn’t what I had envisaged. When I left the wedding dress shop that day I told the owner of the shop: ‘I’m going to be a size 10 when I come back for my fitting in three months’.”

The promise
She gave me her best ‘heard it all before’ smile, but it only motivated me even more. I was going to lose the weight. I just needed the perfect diet plan,” said Nicky. “I researched lots of diets online but I didn’t find one that suited my busy lifestyle, especially working full time with a young child. To be honest, I was getting quite confused with all the information that was out there. I was getting more and more depressed about my weight and couldn’t decide which diet plan to follow.”

The answer? She created her own plan that would work for her. “The time had come, I was ready to challenge myself and diet like I had never done before following my own simple rules, which I felt sure would work.”

She bought herself a blank notebook to use as a food and weight diary and wrote the date and start weight to one side, then listed every food item and calorific value consumed each day. “I also invested in some scales that showed quarter and half pounds and monitored my weight daily.”


The results
“Each and every day I was losing weight. Let me tell you, this was a big motivator for me. Staggeringly, after just seven days I’d lost 9lb. Now I knew this was the real deal. I had the right mind set to continue and, most importantly, the belief I could achieve my goal.”

After just 12 weeks Nicky had lost 3 stone. “I remember walking back into the wedding dress shop and the owner was astounded; she could not believe the amount of weight that I had lost in such a short period of time. My dress went from a size UK 14-16 to a size UK 8-10 in just 12 weeks. I was finally happy with my image, no hiding from cameras, brimming with confidence I could just enjoy my day.”

With friends clamouring for her secrets, and with the confirmation of its ability to work for others in their weight-loss success, Nicky decided to go public with a 12-week diet plan. Avaialble for £9.99 at In tribute to how sure she is that it will work, a full money back guarantee is offered if you’re not entirely satisfied.
