Because of a mutual friend we were introduced one night and I immediately had a huge crush! After we met that night, we began finding reasons to hang out with each other, and about a month later starting dating. We continued dating and became inseparable the remainder of college, both graduating in May of 2009. We both knew that we wanted to marry each other, but it took a while for us to find jobs in the same area. With Stephen living back in Columbia and me living in Fort Mill, we made the best of our long distance relationship. When we FINALLY were able to both be in the Charlotte area in November of 2010, we were engaged two weeks later! I spent the next 7 months planning away! Even though I had never really thought about details that I wanted in a wedding the planning was so easy! I wanted local, down to earth, great vendors, and I got exactly that! They made every last detail perfect for our special day and I can’t begin to thank them enough! 13

must know tips to look

Bridalicious on your wedding day!

You just tried on dresses. When you checked out your gown in the mirror, you weren’t quite as tight, toned and slim as you hoped. In fact, you were a bit horrified at the thought of having a gazillion pictures taken with that arm flab flapping around. It’s your wedding after all. You want to be confident and breathtaking. You want to be the princess you have always imagined in your dreams. Here are nine great tips for getting in shape and making your bridalicious dreams a reality. by Doug Rice, America’s Bridal Fitness Expert

1

tip

From this day forward The sooner you begin, the better you will look by your big day. To really achieve that “wow� factor, start at least six to nine months prior to the wedding, and even sooner if you have an aggressive weight loss goal.

48


Bridal Trifecta Most wedding gowns reveal what I have nicknamed the “Bridal Trifecta,” i.e., arms, back, and shoulders. Some dresses are also form-fitting around the bum and hips.You might have chosen one that has a low cut back, or even shows your calves. You will want to make sure you emphasize these areas when choosing what exercises to focus upon the most.

tip

tip

Take the combo With all the wedding planning, events and activities going on during this special time, you’ll want to make the most of your exercise time. Structure your workouts to include mostly combination movements that use multiple muscle groups during each exercise. An example would be a squat with an arm curl and a press up. 49

My Personal Fitness Vows In fitness and in health‌ I,

, of sound mind, but currently not a sound enough body,

What the heck is a Fitubah? This is what I have named the contract a bride uses to commit her fitness goals to writing; your personal fitness vows. Having your goals in writing will help hold you accountable to the goals. I’ve included a sample Fitubah at the end of these tips, or you can download one at bridalbodyclub.com/fitnessvows.

enter into this fitness contract with myself. This is my contract. If I cannot keep a promise to myself, then to whom can I keep a promise? It is my integrity. It is my pride. It is up to me. This contract celebrates that I have made a choice, for myself, to look my absolute best by my wedding day. I am pledging to achieve the goals that I have specified, and these goals are committed to writing so that I may hold myself accountable. I acknowledge that as a bride-to-be, I am fortunate to have a window of opportunity that is precious and rare in my life. My wedding is an event during which I will demonstrate, to those I love and care about most, how meaningful that day is to me. I not only want to share this sentiment with all the wonderful people in attendance, I want to look and feel like never before. In doing so, I will seize the uniqueness of this milestone day, and I will joyfully relive it with my loving husband, for years to come.On the specified pages are my personal health and fitness goals. I am solely responsible for reaching these goals from this day until my wedding day on

Wedding vendor priority


tip

Grab a bridal body buddy

Research has shown that social support is a vital component to success in a fitness or weight loss goal. Recruit your maid of honor, sister, good friend or co-worker to join you in your “sweating-for-the-wedding� workouts. You can support each other and it makes the experience more fun.

27 There will always be days when you are tired or simply unmotivated. Be determined to not let a situation like this stop you. Those days can be the difference-makers over the long haul as you get closer to your goals. Just like the appointments you dare not miss with your wedding vendors, consider appointments on your workout schedule to be just as important. Write out a structured workout schedule, and make it happen!

tip

Plan to cheat Cheating is part of a successful eating plan, but you have to be smart about it. If you eat a meal or a snack a total of five times a day, that means that in a sevenday period you are eating 35 times. Use the 10% cheat rule. In other words, one of every ten times you eat or snack, cheat a little. That will give you 3-4 cheats per week. Warning: A cheat shouldn’t include an entire 14” double-cheese pepperoni or an entire half gallon of ice cream. Have fun, but don’t go overboard.

52


Kill the cardio routine

8

tip

Traditional steady-state cardio is so yesterday. Intervals are where it’s at. Instead of spending an hour on the elliptical or the stair stepper, try running 30-90 second sprints either on the treadmill or outdoors. Rest for about two minutes and repeat. Do this 6-10 times and you’ll burn way more calories. 53


9

tip

The bouquet is the way Throughout your fitness journey, your hard work will pay off as compliments (or as I call them, bouquets) are thrown your way by family, friends, co-workers. Scribble each one down on some scratch paper and place them in a designated container, box, or jar I call your Bridal Bouquet Box. When you are feeling unmotivated or discouraged, pull out your box and read the inspiring comments. It will pick your spirits up and help refocus your mindset.

How can I have a cost-effective bar at my wedding reception?

58


Cocktails are a big part of the wedding reception, with some couples even choosing cocktails to match the wedding reception color scheme and theme. If you have done any budgeting for your wedding reception, you know that the bar can be an expensive item. Sandra, from Minnesota, wanted some advice on keeping bar costs in check:

Dear Susan, I a m getting mar have just begun plaried next February and I cocktails for my gu nning. I want to serve going over our bud ests, but I’m afraid about has been so expensiget. Everything I’ve seen ve. Help! Sandra, M inneapo

lis MN 59


• Analyze your guest list. If you have a lot of heavy drinkers, you may want to pay for your bar by the hour rather than by the drink. If you have as many people drinking soft drinks as you do liquor, wine and beer, you will probably do better paying by the drink.

• During the cocktail hour, when most people are doing their heaviest drinking, rather than solely relying on the bar, have servers pass non-alcoholic drinks, like lemonade in sugar-rimmed glasses or sparkling water with muddled fruit. • Close the bar during the introductions, first dances and dinner. That will limit the time you will be paying for drinks. 60


• Eliminate the champagne toasts. Your guests can toast you with whatever they are drinking. • Don’t serve alcohol. Work with your catering manager to create fun and colorful non-alcoholic cocktails (mock-tails!)

As with all things wedding, don’t be afraid to get creative with your bar. You may find that you come up with some fun bar ideas that won’t bust your budget!

2011 top wedding trends

By Susan Southerland

Looking for inspiration for your wedding day? Here are some predictions for the hottest trends for 2011.

62

ElegantImageryPhoto.com

Fewer traditions

Couples will continue to buck “tradition-for-tradition’s-sake” and focus on personalizing every aspect of their wedding to reflect their interests and personalities.


Wedding gowns are all about texture this year. In past seasons, we have seen pops of color, lots of bling, and feminine detailing galore. In keeping with the subtly luxurious tone of all wedding trends this year, gowns are following suit with visually interesting and rich textures.

Textural attire

Non-traditional veils

Vintage or heirloom hair combs are really hot. Reusing old items are great for the environment and they are a great way to incorporate something special for a loved one.

63


Crafty cues

ElegantImageryPhoto.com

DIY and handmade wedding related items continue to grow in popularity as they become easier to access and more affordable through major craft retailers and reputable online sources such as Etsy.com.

64


Creative colors

ElegantImageryPhoto.com

Bold colors are the thing for spring! Shades that are a bit punchier than pastel, but not quite jeweltoned are making a big statement this year: rich corals, vibrant apple greens, or goldenrod.

Environmentally aware experiences Eco-friendly

considerations such as outdoor weddings, recycled paper or “plantable� stationery, using vintage jewelry and decor versus new items.

Focus on wedding entertainment

Services that were quick to get the axe in previous years due to budgetary constraints, that will begin making a comeback are: wedding videography, DJ services, and higher quality wedding photography.

65


PTE Productions

Non-traditional reception seating

Couples will be using different shapes and sizes of tables at the reception to create a more casual “lounge� feel.

Alternative times for weddings

Wedding brunches are big as couples try to spend wisely. The time change can save money on food and bar bills. 66


Chuck the tchotchkes!

Couples are choosing to provide their guests with a dessert bar, a candy bar, cigars and a signature drink, coffee bars, or souvenir photobooth picture strips in lieu of the traditional wedding favor trinket.

Simple wedding cakes

As opposed to elaborate and whimsical designs of years past, wedding cakes in 2011 will be scaled back to more modest designs with all-edible elements.

Intimate weddings are still going strong; although wedding budgets are beginning to recover in 2011, a return to the traditional lengthy guest list will not make a comeback.

Shorter guest lists

wedding receptions:

10 ways to get your guests involved

The best wedding receptions occur when you can feel the love in the room. It’s magical! You step inside the ballroom and all the guests are engaged. Even if they aren’t on the dance floor, they are swaying in their seats. Every bride and groom wants a wedding reception just like that. Making sure your guests get involved with your wedding isn’t difficult; it just takes a bit of planning. Follow a few of these suggestions and you will most certainly have a magical evening! 68


1 2 3 4

Start on time. Don’t keep your guests waiting. Sitting around at the ceremony or standing at the cocktail hour (especially in the heat or cold) for an extended amount of time will frustrate your guests. Frustrated guests typically want to eat, drink and leave.

Interact with your guests. Greet as many as you can and thank them for coming. This thoughtful gesture will make each of your guests feel welcome and loved.

Add personal touches. Old photographs, personalized place cards and memorable songs will engage your guests and draw them into the evening’s activities.

Provide conversation starters. If many of your guests don’t know each other, consider having place cards with trivia questions about you and your groom. Questions like “How did Susie and Bob meet?” or “Where did Bob propose?” will get people talking.

5 6 7

Be active in your reception. Guests take their cues from the newlyweds. If you are up dancing, your guests will be, too.

Play music that appeals to a variety of attendees. Start out with music that everyone recognizes and build up to the songs you and your friends like as the evening progresses.

Keep all entertainment inside the reception room. Anything that draws your guests away from the reception room will detract from the reception. Photo booths, photo presentations, caricature artists, etc. should all be stationed inside the reception room.

8

Make sure the music isn’t too loud. If the music drowns out conversation at the guests’ tables, they are more likely to walk out of the reception room to take a break from the sound. As the reception room empties, the party will slow down.

9

Keep the party moving. According to traditional etiquette, it is proper to leave only after the cake is cut. Holding guests “hostage” if they want to leave isn’t a good way to get them involved. Cutting the cake after dinner allows the guests who want to eat dessert and leave to feel comfortable doing so. Leave the partying to those who want to party.

10

Allow group dances. Most people who don’t feel comfortable dancing solo will join a big group on the dance floor. Some couples shy away from them because they think that group dances are “cheesy”. There are so many from which to choose that you and your band or DJ can find one that will work well with your group. 69
