My date is 8 months away, but as soon as I got engaged I started dieting and working out more, to drop 2 dress sizes before the big day. I’m also growing out my hair and taking B complex vitamins in hopes it’ll boost hair growth just a bit. I went through all my skincare and got rid of harsh products, and I’m becoming more diligent about wearing sunscreen every single day.
I’m also thinking about getting my teeth whitened and giving up coffee! But that’s quite extreme.
What are you doing ahead of time?

I worked out a few times a week and increased my water intake so my skin would look nicer.

I’ve already dropped a ton of weight, eating healthy (really really healthy) and walking. I’ve also cut back on highlighting my hair right now to improve the condition of it. I’ll get it done before the wedding. Taking better care of my skin and will probably get a facial or two this year.

I’m also going to whiten my teeth! I’m running and working out, but I was doing that beforehand as well. I’m also trying really hard to NOT pick at my skin!

I’m doing all the same things you are: working out, eating better, whitening my teeth and growing out my hair. The goal will be to maintain these things AFTER the wedding! Why should I only look fabulous for one day?! 🙂

@Aure: agreed, both FH & I are using Crest Whitestrips. We used one pack with great results; but we love our coffee, so I have our next pack to use in late summer before our wedding.
We’re also both very active and eat healthily; but we’re each on our own paying a little more attention to portion size. I’d like to be down 5 lbs; he’s lost 15 already and would like to keep that off and drop another 10.
Like MissMarriage, these are things we would like to maintain long after the big day as well.

I had braces put on my teeth 3 month after we got engaged. They’re coming off about a month before our wedding. My teeth weren’t horrible before, but I really wanted them to be perfect for our big day.

My date has passed, but all I wanted to do and did was drop 5lbs. so my dress fit a little better.

I’m not engaged yet, but I know it’s coming soon. I’ve started eating healthy and working out now, instead of putting myself on a timeline with a wedding. This way I have lot’s of time to lose weight without the added pressure of dropping the weight on time. I also suffer from Androgentic Alopecia, so I’ve started some therapy programs with my hair to see if I can get some thickness back. I have thinning on my scalp that I can easily hide with styling but it’s been pretty traumatic losing my hair. I’ll wear a hair piece the day of, but getting some lustre and thickness back is my main mission.

I too just joined the gym and am working on eating better. I also plan on whitening my teeth about a month or so in advance. And at some point in the near months before the wedding i plan on getting a facial done and of course my nails done too! 🙂
