As a semi-professional photographer now getting married myself, one of the best pieces advice I can give you is to either budget for a REALLY good photographer, or else don’t sign with a cheaper photographer until or unless you find one who makes you incredibly comfortable. When you’re not completely comfortable, it will show up in your pictures, and that effect is only magnified when you (like me) are plus-sized.

The only other thing I can suggest is that if you’re feeling insecure, you should talk to your Fiance about it. I didn’t for a long time, because I was embarrassed, and when it finally came out, he was shocked to find out I was so self-conscious about my weight, and really intense about reassuring me that no matter WHAT I weigh, he thinks I’m beautiful and knows that everyone else who sees me on our wedding day will think so too.

Yes, and my best advice is to bring a lot of wonderful friends when you go dress shopping.  I did that yesterday.  I was totally nervous about it but my friends were all so wonderful, it turned out to be an amazing experience!

I’ve read three or four articles this month about the benefits of walking- not power walking, not even brisk walking, just getting outside and walking.  Start at whatever you want- 10 minutes, 15 minutes, whatever, and work your way up to 30 to 45 minutes.  I’m also going to concentrate on toning and strengthening.  If I see results, great, but I’m not doing it for the wedding, I’m just trying to make some general improvements to my health.  Every time I do it for something other than myself, it fails for me.

In the end, our Fiance, friends, and family love us for who we are and think we’re beautiful.  Everyone has imperfections, it doesn’t matter.  The important thing is to have a good time and enjoy yourself.  Everything else will fall into place 🙂
