Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

In the midst of this busy wedding planning have you thought about what you are going to do with your wedding dress after the big day? Some brides spend £50, others spend £5000, but after the wedding day has come and gone – what do you do with the gown? Today we have researched 5 different options for your to take a look at.

We took about a year to plan the wedding and in that time I felt an unbearable pressure to lose weight for the big day. In every wedding magazine going there were lists of what to do for the wedding – and nearly all of them included starting a fitness regime. Why? Why should marrying the person you love come hand in hand with dieting? Surely they love you as you are?
