Flaunted the most in a gown—toned shoulders, back and arms cut a picture of envy on the big day and are key to looking fabulous in a white wedding gown
Well, for a white wedding bride, that strapless, off-shoulder, halter, backless gown can spell doom bringing to the fore any unwanted bulge or flab on your arms and shoulders. While it’s a known fact that the legend of ‘spot reduction’ is a mere fable in the fitness turf, you can still effectively sculpt your body to perfection by toning your core and basic muscles. You can’t change your basic body type—you are who you are. Once you have your wedding dress, put it on, stand in front of a full-length mirror, and look at the parts that will be exposed and accordingly tailor your workout routine. Fitness gurus recommend that a bridal workout regime should start in full swing at least three months prior to the wedding. So if you have a sleeveless dress, do the upper-body workout first. For most women, it actually is the upper arms, upper back, and shoulders that command immediate attention. If it is a wedding with the bride sashaying in a backless dress, concentrate on the back muscles first.
