Every bride wants to look and feel amazing on her big day. Here at best bride we know that it can be hard to get in a good workout between the cake tasting, dress fittings and overall planning. Whether you want to lose weight or tone up, we have put together the ultimate guide, tips and tricks to help you achieve your wedding ready look with just 30 minutes each day!

{{Workout Tip #1}}

One of our fan favorites here at Best Bride is to challenge your bridal party to get fit with you! What’s better than spreading your fitness love to your closest friends and family? Weekly workouts can begin to feel mundane, so make things more interesting and take on a bride vs groom challenge to see what team can achieve their fitness goals first! It’s a fun way to spice up any boring old workout routine, while achieve positive results for everyone!

{{Workout Tip #2}}

Taking on a new fitness journey can be discouraging when you don’t see the results you wanted right away. We suggest taking weekly progress photos to help you compare for results and stay motivated toward your end goals!  Remember it takes you 4 weeks to notice change, your friends 8 weeks and the rest of the world 12 weeks – don’t give up!!

{{Workout Tip #3}}

Maximize your fitness journey by adding in some healthy food choices to help boost your energy as you work toward your goals! Try swapping out your afternoon soda for a water or tea, opt out of that chocolate bar in favor of your favorite fruit or nut combo, grab some greens for your next lunch and say no to those tempting greasy choices. Small tweaks to your everyday food menu can lead to long lasting healthy results!
