Hey girls, Brit here! In case you didn’t know, I am recently engaged and in the midst of planning a destination wedding! Wow, there is lots to do! And on top of all that, I want to the best shape of my life! Phew! So I got thinking and thought, how cool would it be to be part of a #BrideTribe that sweats together, vents together, motivates each other and best of all, helps each other feel amazing for our big days! Inspired to create this thing I wanted in my life, I began brainstorming what would help me feel relaxed and radiant on my big day! Whether you’re getting ready for the biggest event of your life (like getting married) or just a big event, we all want to look our best, so here are what I think the top 6 components to becoming a truly BUF Bride are…
#1 – Nutrition
We’re sure it comes as no surprise to you that Nutrition is #1 on the list if you want a rocking bridal body. At least 70% of your results will come from your diet and you need to approach nutrition in the right way to make sure you retain your glow – no starved BUF Brides here!
If I had to give you just one knockout tip, it would be to eat simple meals created from whole foods. That means eating simple food, free from chemicals and preservatives. Think proteins, vegetables and fruit, nuts and seeds and healthy fats like avocado and olive oil.
#2 – Exercise
We are strong believers in making fitness fun and mixing up your training to keep your body guessing. Females especially need to focus on not only working the big muscle groups of the body to burn fat, but also the smaller, supporting muscles and connective tissue to ensure a lean, tight and slick body ready for those unforgiving wedding dress fabrics. Stretching plays a seriously important part in creating a long and lean physique too.
Try not to get too hung up on complicated workouts, just get your body moving every day (consistency is more important than intensity) and include a mix of resistance training using your own bodyweight, or free weights like dumbbells if you have access to them. Include some interval-based cardio work and of course, specific toning for your arms, back, abs/waist and bottom.
#3 – Glowing Hair & Skin
A few things to get you started in the glowing hair and skin stakes are eating healthy fats, drinking plenty of filtered water and ditching inflammatory foods (think fried stuff, refined sugar, packaged snacks and, erm, cigarettes and excess booze).
If you’re feeling a little more committed, drink healing bone broth to boost skin and hair quality/thickness, don’t overdo the gluten and dairy products and book in a series of facials with a skin care specialist that really knows their stuff.
#4 – Chillout Days
Stress can wreak havoc on your body and chances are your stress levels will start to peak as the big day approaches. When you’re feeling overwhelmed, cut out stimulants like caffeine, alcohol and high intensity exercise sessions and swap in herbal teas, early nights and long walks in the sunshine instead. A few dates with your yoga mat, or regular meditation sessions (even just a few minutes of focusing on your breath) will add to your sense of calm too.
#5 – You + Him (or Her!)
You’re going to have lots of things going on that will try to rob you of quality time with your partner, so we suggest taking regular time out to enjoy each other’s company before the big day. Get outdoors, adventuring and moving together without distractions whenever possible, or have “TV-free nights” where you ditch the screen time, go on a date, do something you did together when you first met and really focus on each other instead.
#6 – Enjoy The Journey
You’ve heard the saying, ‘life is about the journey, not the destination’ right? Well I believe this is similar to the many weeks and months before your Wedding day. Try not to focus only on that walk up the aisle, but the beautiful, romantic, loved-up journey you’ll take the get there. Oh and the fun you’ll have working out, baking love snacks and soaking up some serious girl power from all the other brides on your BUF Bride journey too, of course 😉
