    So, the day of the wedding I knew I was 5 lbs over. I have since gained another 5 lbs. DH is officially 12 lbs over his normal weight now, too…. And it’s not even been a whole month since the wedding yet!  We plan on eating healthier now. But man, it was nice to have a few weeks to just enjoy eating cake and pizza! lol

    I did gain some lbs after my wedding (5-10), but for the wedding I got to a lower weight than I could ever remember being–smaller than I was in high school or college.  I’m trying to get back down there by working out every day and eating healthy, but seeing as I got to my wedding weight by working out 1+ hour/day and eating very little, I don’t know if my body even wants to be at that weight again.

    I have gained about 8 pounds since the wedding, but I unintentionally lost weight before the wedding and was, IMO, too skinny on my wedding day (BMI of ~17). Now,  a year later, I’ve returned to my normal weight, which I’m quite happy with. I wonder if most women who gain wait after the wedding were unusually slim on their big day, due to dieting or stress, and the “gain” is just reverting to the norm, or if it’s more than that?

    Heck yeah I gained weight- like 30 pounds!


    I am now 20 pounds back down though, in my defence. 

    I gained about 6 pounds just on the honeymoon!

    No weight gain here. I’ve been the same weight since high school (except when I was pregnant of course).

    I actually lost like 5 more pounds, but I wasn’t really trying to.

    I voted yes, but I’m blaming the baby weight!  😉

    Nope.  My weight likes to stay put right where it is +/- 3 lbs and has been that way since high school.

    @BelliniChic:  I expect to but only because I plan on being a few pounds thinner than usual for my wedding.

    I wasn’t really weighing myself at the time but I think I’m up 10. I blame going back to school though, not getting married (B school = lots of beer). My clothes still fit but I’m trying to buckle down and lose 5-8 lbs
