    I go through the same thing– but on top of the seasons/holidays as you mentioned, I am definitely more active in the summer/spring.  Winter I tend to do very little outside my normal routine– whereas summer time I am always at the beach or camping, or doing somthing active in my free time.  This burns a lot more calories than sitting wrapped up in a blanket reading a book! 

    But this didn’t really play a factor in wedding planning– wanting a backward BBQ wedding pretty much locked in a summer date. 🙂

    My weight fluctuates, too, but it didn’t play much of a part in our wedding date (obviously, since I chose January).  No, the bigger issue for me was when I would have tan lines.  On weekends in April and May, I perform at a renaissance festival, and by the end of the season, I always end up with what we call the Renaissance W, which is caused by the shape of our bodices and by how our boobs get pushed together while wearing our costumes.  Here, I’ve added a totally sexy nude photo of myself so you know exactly what I’m talking about:

     

    I wore a strapless dress, so I didn’t want to be rocking that awesome tan in all my photos.  It takes forever to go away, so I wanted at LEAST six months between the end of faire and the wedding.  In summary, no, I didn’t plan it around my weight, but an equally shallow physical factor that changes with the seasons did.

    I didn’t even think about anything weight-related when it came to choosing a wedding date. That said, I’m glad I didn’t have to worry all throughout the holiday season about every little cookie I ate. 😉

    ….oh dang. Nope, I didn’t. But I shoulda. Aw nuts…

    I’m like you and I gain 8-10 lbs in winter, which usually starts showing around Feb. Which is the month we chose.

    @GreenEyedMoon:  

    *laughs* great “nude photo”.

    For Fiance and I our weight fluctuates as well: we are at our most muscular and leanest at the end of the winter/ ski season. Our legs get smaller and bodies get a little less fit and definitely less powerful over the summer.

    Because we chose our wedding date in the fall to coincide with our hectic work schedules and my school, we’re both working hard to keep in good shape over the summer.

    Thanks!  I’m glad you all think I’m sexy in the buff despite my tan!
