What brides should eat before THESE 5 wedding events to stay healthy and fit?

Before the wedding, every bride-to-be needs to take extra care of their diet plan to stay fit, healthy and active. They should consult a dietician to have a strict guideline for their foods. But they have to be extra cautious for the important days of the wedding and the diet chart may also change slightly depending on the occasion.

For example, for your wedding dress shopping or fitting, you don’t want to feel bloated, so you need to consume foods that are helpful to reduce bloating.

These are the foods to eat before the important wedding events:

Wedding dress shopping

While going for your wedding dress shopping, avoid any processed or ordered foods as they are high in sodium content which causes bloating. Rather, simply stick to homecooked foods. But remember, you can’t have too much cereals as the fibre content also causes bloating. So, eat low-fat Greek yoghurt with

Groom’s van, bride’s purse stolen on wedding night

WXYZ — It was far from an ideal end to a wedding day that was already altered by COVID-19 precautions.

A newlywed couple held a socially distanced reception in a family member’s Livonia backyard. Everyone had a good time, with safety top of mind.

But little did the bride and groom know, a thief was lurking nearby.

They found out the hard way.

When it was time to leave the reception the groom’s cargo van was nowhere to be found.

The Ford Transit-250 was stolen from Pollyanna Street near Farmington and 6 Mile roads.

Along with the van, the thief took off with the bride’s purse, phone and other belongings.

The couple would like to remain unnamed to maintain some privacy during this exciting yet troubling time.

They’re hoping the Motor City can come together to provide them with one last wedding gift: help bring their van home.

Woman starts ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Wedding Dress’ group offering used gowns to brides in need

Tina Nguyen has a track record of helping people in need, whether it’s providing homeless women and children with care kits or fundraising for a local Minneapolis, Minn. pie shop owner put out of business by the pandemic. But her latest deed of offering her wedding dress for brides getting married during this unprecedented time is gaining nationwide attention as women across the country join her effort to give every bride an unforgettable day.

“What a privilege it was for me to have everything I wanted, to have the beautiful dress, the beautiful day,” Nguyen tells Yahoo Life of her September 2019 wedding. “To look back with the economic downturn that we are facing, especially with George Floyd, all of the racism and all of the pain that our cities face, I wanted to do something. I wanted to bring back joy. I wanted somebody’s first next life… when you

Everybody was invited. Probably at least 100, 150 people,” Shoemaker said.But that all changed with the coronavirus pandemic, and it was back to the drawing board.”We had the epiphany of what really matters here, so we asked the facility if we could get married in the parking lot because her window faces the parking lot and of course, we got so much more,” Haigh said.Park Vista Health Center worked with the family … Read More

Father-in-law insults bride’s appearance at ‘surprise’ wedding, gets slammed online

A Reddit user was facing criticism last week after seeming to insult his daughter-in-law about how she looked at her “surprise” wedding. 

The angry father-in-law posted about the incident on Reddit’s “Am I the A–h—” forum. 

According to the user, who has since deleted his account, his son and daughter-in-law were married eight months ago but didn’t tell anyone in advance that their ceremony was happening.

Instead, the bride and groom invited everyone to attend a cocktail party, which was eventually where the couple said “I do.” 

The father of the groom explained that his wife unintentionally wore white to the event. In the United States, wedding guests typically tend to avoid wearing white as a means to not distract from the bride.

Brides and prejudice: How the wedding industry is struggling under strict coronavirus restrictions

By now, wedding season should be reaching a triumphant end, thousands of bouquets thrown and garters tossed, with vendors retreating with fatigue. This year, of course, it never really got started.

Like most in the industry, Marianna Vaki, founder of London-based cake makers Whisk and Drizzle, began 2020 with a diary full of bookings but due to ongoing restrictions, she has been able to fulfil just 10 per cent of those orders, many of which had to be downsized. The rest of her brides have moved their weddings to next year, with some considering postponing again to 2022. If they do, she faces a second year with little-to-no income and the prospect that her business might not survive. “If weddings don’t resume next year, a lot of us won’t be here in 2022,” she says, adding that she is having to look for another job to make up for the

Woman loans designer wedding dress to other brides for free

A woman in Minneapolis wants to help other brides feel special on their wedding day by loaning out her designer dress. 

Last week, Tina Nguyen posted a photo of her wedding dress on Facebook Marketplace offering to lend it to other women for free.

“I absolutely loved my wedding dress, it was one of the best parts of being a bride,” she wrote in her ad. “If you are planning your wedding, or know someone who is, and can not afford a wedding dress, please connect with me. I’ll lend my dress for the bride for her big day.”

The dress is a Paloma Blanca, she said in her ad. It is made with three layers of silk and costs more than $2,000, according to Minneapolis television station KARE 11.

Brides’ 2020 Wedding Study Reveals New Post-Pandemic Perspectives on Marriage

NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Brides (www.brides.com) released findings from its 2020 American Wedding Study. What began as a holistic look at what weddings mean to couples in 2020, quickly transformed into a study about how a world-altering event—with ramifications for health, finance, culture, and relationships— impacted those ideals.

Brides surveyed over 1,400 American newlyweds in a range of demographics including age, race, income, geographic location, and sexual orientation. The results shed light on how the pandemic impacts attitudes toward weddings and marriage, and the result is an in-depth exploration of what motivates Americans to get married and have weddings today, and shows how couples have responded to a time of upheaval and uncertainty.

“Couples have pivoted their planning—and gotten creative with microweddings and virtual ceremonies—to celebrate with their families in a safe way,” said Roberta Correia, Editorial Director, Brides. “If anything,

A Socially Distant Wedding in the Bride’s Boho Backyard

When Harneet Sidhu met Sim Brar online in May 2019, they say “they felt as if they’d known each other their whole lives.”

It came as no surprise when Sim, a software engineer, proposed to his Harneet, a school teacher, just seven months later. He enlisted the help of Harneet’s sister when it came time to pop the question, creating a handmade scrapbook that would house the ring. “Already excited about the idea of a scrapbook, I opened it up, and on the very first page was written ‘Our Wedding Day,’ with the engagement ring resting on the page. It was thoughtful, sweet, and the best way I could have imagined,” exclaims Harneet.

With a ring on her finger, the bride knew exactly where she wanted to say “I do” to Sim: her parent’s backyard in Vancouver, British Columbia. “It had been a dream of mine to have a boho-style
