It's wedding season and weddings are celebration times, and in India, celebrations are just incomplete without ghee laden ladoos and lots of other calorie-packed delicacies. Added to this are the bachelor nights, family get-togethers and other pre-wedding functions. You cannot help filling yourself with additional calories. In the process, you are left with a bloated body, oily skin and an extremely undesirable pouch in the abdominal area.

But here we're, as always, for your rescue. Here are a few tips to camouflage the extra bulk and look slim and stunning on your wedding day. All the brides-to-be start reading the tips and hacks to look slim on your D-day:
Water retention in your body can make you feel very heavy. A simple solution to avoid this problem is to keep away from salty foods for 8 to 10 hours before the ceremony. Drink lots of water and cranberry juice to flush accumulated fluids out of your body.
Bloating of stomach happens when excess air enters your digestive system. So, it would be better if you eat your food slowly and avoid carbonated drinks. Else, eat more of foods like cabbage, broccoli and legumes that will help to kick away this problem.
The taller you are, the slimmer you look. So, avoid looking plumper than you actually are by maintaining an upright posture. Elongate your spine, hold your head high and there you go!
Nothing makes you feel better than embracing your inner beauty. Remind yourself of all the hard work that you have put in to look your best for your special day. Take pride in yourself and you will feel slimmer even if the actual workout has not been able to reduce the readings on the scales.
It is a good idea to have a good, scrumptious meal at the beginning of your day. You can then munch a light snack just before the ceremony to keep the energy up.
Stay calm, keep a good posture and flash your million dollar smile. Take off attention from those little pockets of flab. You can even add a dash of bronzer to your skin to get a gorgeous finish.
Have small snacks at regular intervals instead of one heavy meal. This will make you feel light and energised at the same time.
Discuss a new look with your hairdresser. Trying new haircuts and hairdos can remove inches from your face instantly, making you look leaner.
Wear smart underwear. Spandex pants hide those unwanted bumps on your body. You can also try accessories and heels to give you the illusion of height and reduced inches from the waistline.
Getting a burst of fresh air with a morning walk followed by a revitalising cup of herbal tea can be a great way to start your D-day. You will feel fresh, light and confident!
So, these were the ways for brides to look slimmer on their wedding days. We hope these tips will help you out. All the best for your D-day. And don't forget to share your feedback in the comment section below!
