From the moment she says yes, most brides are thinking about getting in shape and looking healthy for their big day. Founder of Target Fitness Retreats, James Golden, tells us what every bride should do in the final six weeks before their big day to help them achieve a toned and glowing look ready to walk down the aisle.

Avoid stodgy carbs

When we take on diets, everyone enjoys a little indulgence at the weekend, whether it’s a stuffed crust pizza from your local takeaway or crispy roast potatoes with your Sunday lunch. James Golden recommends cutting out all heavy carbs including white bread, pasta and rice in the lead up to your wedding to help avoid gaining any unwanted pounds and prevent bloated stomachs.

Tone your tummy

Get a toned, flat stomach in time for your final dress fitting. Set aside 15 minutes each morning, 3-4 times a week to do three sets of 10 reps of consecutive deadlifts, press-ups and 30 second planks. These certainly provide impact when performed regularly, leaving your tummy feeling and looking toned.

Say bye to bingo wings

If your dress is sleeveless, has thin straps or is designed to reveal the top of your arms and shoulders, James Golden suggests adding press ups, tricep dips and dumbbell punches into your exercise routine 3-4 times a week. These will fire up the muscles in your upper arms to help shed the fat. Boxing is also a very useful training technique to shape those arms and can also relieve any last minute wedding preparation stress.

Eat your way to smooth shiny skin

From regular facials to committing to new skin routines each morning and night, every bride wishes for soft, smooth and glowing skin on their big day. James Golden says that it is important to feed your skin with the right food as your glow comes from within. To achieve this, ensure you eat plenty of food with high levels of Vitamin C including citrus fruit, broccoli and strawberries along with foods high in Omega 3, such as salmon, sardines and mackerel.
