So knowing most bees are dieting and/or exercising to be the perfect size for the wedding . . .
What is your ideal street size by your wedding day?
Are you already at your ideal size?
Why do you want to be that size and what if anything are you doing to get there 🙂
Let’s keep it positive too because we certainly have to see that beauty comes in all sizes on this board! So many beautiful brides!
I am currently a size 8 and have been there since a bad car accident 3 years ago – the rest of my life I have been a size 2 or 4 and would like to get back to at least a small size 6 to feel like me again.

Well, I voted 8-10 because that seemed more reasonable than 4-6. I used to be a 6 but started taking a pill that caused me to gain a ton of weight and then moved in with my Fiance. Cohabitating doesn’t do great things for your waistline. I’m a 12-14 now and would love to get back to where I was at some point.
I’m trying to eat better using Weight Watchers, but I’m really stalling on exercise. I hate the gym, it’s way too hot to run outside here and when I tried barre class the instructor humiliated me. I’m a bit discouraged on that end but we may be getting a treadmill soon which would help a lot. I would love to go back to barre class, the exercises a lot of fun, but I think I need to lose some weight before I go back so they don’t pick on me as much. 🙁
@unixfairy: You’re a Las Vegan too, right? Do you have any exercise secrets for surviving the heat?

@Aure: yeah unfortunately it involves getting up at an ungodly hour or waiting until after dark to exercise. I do have a treadmill in my house which cuts out excuses as well.
I honestly find it easier to diet than to exercise which is bad I know so trying to be more active and cut the carbs out significantly. My Fiance is pre-diabetic so while it is vanity for me it could be life saving for him 🙂
Are you getting married here locally? 🙂

Right now I’m a 10, but I’d love to be a 6-8 by March. I’m having a hard time getting motivated to exercise though. I need to get with it soon!

Man, I would have preferred to be a size 2 on my wedding day but I was an 8 instead. And, like a shallow dumbass, I sobbed when I looked at my pictures because I look like an ugly marshmallow. I had 8 months to get in shape for the wedding and all I did was drop one size and didn’t tone up at all 🙁

I put 4-6 but I would really like to be a 4 (which is what size my wedding dress is!). I am more of a 6 at the moment. I am a candy-holic and very bad about exercising so we will see!

Deff a UK size 10- no idea what size that translates to in the US?!
Anything thinner and my face looks gaunt and horrible! Urgh! (Yet still have a big bum???!!!)
Put on over three stone with Implanon that I have just had removed. Fingers crossed I get back to where I was two years ago before next summer. I’ve done it before, I’ll do it again!!!

@unixfairy: Yeah, I gave up on running after the last two summers when I was still 100 degrees at 1am so I’m really hoping to get a treadmill.
We are going to get married here but I haven’t decided where yet. Anything on the strip is ridiculously expensive and it seems most of the offstrip options are either ridiculous strip prices or not really that nice. Some days I’m ready to just throw my hands up and go to the courthouse! 🙂

Right now I’m a flabby 6, so I would like to be a toned 4 by the wedding day. I have a gym membership, but need some motivation to get my butt over there!

I’d like to be around a size 8 by the wedding. I’m around a 14 right now so it’s not impossible. I’ll still be able to get away without major dress alterations if I go down to an 8 since my dress has a corset panel in the back. My pelvis and rib cage are actually too wide to allow me to go much smaller than that.

I’m a street size 0 (wedding dress size 2, but bought a 4 for my larger bust). Ideally I’d like to tone up (gain weight, lose size).
I excercise 5 hours a week. And if I miss a week I lose about 4-8 pounds (of muscle).

I’m a 14, my dress is a 16, and I’d like to go down to a street size 10. Any thinner than that and I start to look a little wonky.

I was a size 5 till something happened last year and I went up to an 11. I’m trying to be down to a 6 or 8 by the wedding =)
Post # 15
So I had gained weight and went up to an 8, now I’m back to my somewhat normal size of a 6 but would LOVE to be a solid 4 for my wedding (I am a 4 sometimes at places that run big or some types of pants). With 88 days left, maybe I can drop the extra weight, but I doubt it.

I want to be a 6-8, but more toned and healthy rather than focus on size. Especially because I don’t want to pay to have my dress altered again.
