It’s likely to be the only day in your life when you’ll feel like a celebrity: the hair, the make-up, the expensive dress, the photographer, the audience… and with compliments pouring in, that’s exactly how Jenna Holmes from Bognor Regis, West Sussex, felt in her size 12 dress.

She had lost more than three-and-a-half stone for her big day. “Lots of people asked how I’d done it – it’s all down to the plan,” she explains, in reference to The Wedding Dress Diet Plan. “My heaviest last year was 15 stone 2 lbs and a size 18/20. When I got married I was 11 stone 6lbs and a size 12. I was so happy and proud of myself.”

Her secret to feeling celebrity great was a £9.99 diet plan, and we wanted to know more.

Choosing the plan
The big attraction to Jenna was how easily the plan fitted into her busy everyday life. “As a mother of one I am constantly on the go. But the Wedding Dress Diet Plan was so easy – I was cooking delicious healthy meals that were within the boundaries of the diet while still satisfying my child and partner.” It’s the 12-week diet plan that’s easy to follow and packed full of healthy and nutritious meal ideas.

“I had been through years of yo-yo dieting but was stuck at 14 stone 10lbs and a dress size 18 with one year to go until my wedding. I knew I wanted to lose weight to fulfil my childhood dream of wearing the ultimate fairytale dress,” she explains. “But my willpower and confidence was at rock bottom. I came across this and decided to give it a go. The founders, Nicky and Rachel, were real people like me, and the plan looked simple and easy to follow.”

Initial results
Jenna started the plan and lost 4lbs in the first two days. “I couldn’t believe how quickly I was seeing results,” she said. “It instantly boosted my willpower and gave me the self-belief to keep on going.

“The weight kept falling off – after four weeks I had lost a stone. Dress sizes fell away and I was delighted to get into a size 12 after the full 12 weeks of the plan. Going out and buying a new wardrobe was so exciting - I was buying clothes that showed off my shape and made me feel good about myself.”
