Wedding Ideas caught up with real bride Jenna as she reveals how she slimmed down to her perfect shape for the big day. Over to you, Jenna!

“I’ve struggled with my weight since having my daughter and found that other diets just weren’t working for me; I was 14st 10 and a size 18 and incredibly unhappy about it,” she explains. “At the same time as trying to lose weight I was also planning my wedding and I knew that I was desperate not to be the size I was when I said I do.”


“Feeling low in confidence, unfit and not myself, I found an article in Wedding Ideas magazine about a diet called The Wedding Dress Diet. It was a diet written by a bride-to-be, because she, like me, wanted to be slim on her wedding day. She had taken bits from different diets and written her own 12-week diet plan and she had lost 3 stone in 3 months!”

“After reading the article and going online to, and seeing how the diet had worked for others, I purchased the e-book and couldn’t wait to read it. The diet plan itself was easy to understand and easy to follow – and after just two days I had lost 4lbs. I couldn’t believe it, I was so happy to see the figure on the scales go down instead of up for once. It made me determined to keep going!”

“I found it easy to cook delicious healthy meals that the whole family enjoyed while sticking to the diet plan. I lost a stone after 4 weeks; I was shocked at how well I was doing, just by following some simple rules.”

“Sometimes when you think something is too good to be true, it normally is, but not this diet. This was doing exactly what I had read about and I was feeling so happy with my progress. I was getting comments about the weight loss which was giving me the boost to continue.”


“Finally I felt the full reward of doing the diet when after the 12 weeks, I had lost 2 and a half stone and was buying size 14 jeans for the first time in a long time. I’ve got so much confidence now and feel so much better about myself. Next stop – wedding dress shopping!”
