    I feel the pressure.. specially when my mum pokes my tummy when shes joking and she says you better watch your weight… I KNOW i have abit of a tummy, but im not obese.. im in the healthy weight range, but yup its exactly what I needed with only 19 days to go.. Nothing like the ego boost. I worry that my skin isnt going to look that great even tho Ive tried and tried to drink lots of water and do all the right beauty routines. Anyway.. since ive done that my skins never looked more crappier. Breaking out and then it smooths out then it dries out.

    *sigh* thanks for letting me vent too.

    There is definitely a pressure.. and your not alone.

    don’t worry lovelies! i have definite insecurities… and was nervous about having all the attention on me. but once your hubby or soon-to-be-hubby (if you do the first look thing) says you’re gorgeous, you won’t give it a second thought for the rest of the day. promise.

    I have no doubt you ladies are all going to look gorgeous on your wedding day. Somehow with the dress and the hair and makeup, it all comes together that day. And whatever imperfections there are left, your photographer takes care of them πŸ™‚ I thought before the wedding I have a nice body and I want my wedding dresses to show it off. Well, I ended up with two dresses that really didn’t; and I was sure I was going to look at my photos afterwards and feel fat or ugly. But now that I look at them…I don’t even see those details. I just see the prettiest version of myself that could be, overall, smiling big and happy, and I love it!

    You are aboslutely, positively, NOT ALONE in feeling this way.  With the exception of last week, every time I have put on my wedding dress, I’ve felt horrible about myself.  I’m the heaviest I’ve been in my entire life and three months out from my wedding.  I’m working hard to lose just a bit of weight between now and my date in October -but if I don’t I’m sure life will go on..  I’ve never been a person to be critical of my looks – so this is very new to me,  Part of me wonders if it is because in the last two years, yes I’ve put on weight but my usual insecurity was my crooked, overcrowded teeth – I’ve had braces now and have a great smile.. perhaps I’m trying to find a new flaw to fixate on?

    In the end, I agree with the PP about the fact that on your actual wedding day, your hubby wil think you are the most amazing woman he has ever seen – and really? that is all that matters πŸ™‚
