This was such a great post! Thanks so much for sharing.  My FI and I are both working to shed some weight before our May 2016 wedding.  We want to look and feel our best on our Big Day but love each other just are we are right now.  This post helped me to remember just that. 🙂

Soonerbee07:  Ditto! I was working so hard at dieting and exercising before the wedding that, when I fell off of the wagon due to the stress three weeks before, I absolutely panicked and was a mess. I was so scared I wouldn’t get into my dress and that the whole thing would be ruined and that I’d look disgusting and that people’s eyes would melt out of their heads, etc etc etc…

… and then when the time came, and I fit into my dress (with a bit of help from my bridesmaids), and I got to walk down to greet my husband-to-be, I completely forgot about it. The day was beautiful and amazing, and even if I had lost a bunch of weight, I wouldn’t have felt any more special and loved. Even when we got our photos back and some of them prominently feature my double-chin, I look so happy that it all makes up for any insecurities I may have about myself and my size. 🙂

Soonerbee07: this is what its about. this is what i’m talking about!!!!! i love what you’ve said 🙂

i am a plus size lady and 6 months ago a bride…and i was so happy about getting married i found a way to not stress to much about the way i looked. i worked out and watched what i ate leading up to the wedding, but i was me, i was comfortable, and my husband has never looked at me the way he did that day. it was the best feeling!!!

Soonerbee07:  what a beautiful, inspiring post…its true that so many of us brides can get so hung up on appearances that we sometimes forget what it’s really all about. I’m so happy you had such a wonderful day, congratulations x

Soonerbee07:  Thanks for posting this! I am a little bit overweight, and I felt like it was so rude of people who kept telling me to lose weight. Even the sales consultant said to me, “Well you should order a lower size because you’re going to lose some weight, right?”. How RUDE!

A family member also told me she was “concerned” and that I should start dieting for the wedding (Sorry – but I get a check up every year, I am totally healthy, etc… and I am NOT even that overweight!). I did end up losing 20 pounds (did a weight loss challenge w/my cousin) so that was nice – but still. My husband has NEVER said anything about losing weight – he loves me just the way I am! 🙂
