Getting in Shape Before Your Big Day

fitness-weddingIf there is still some months to go until your wedding day, it can be a great opportunity for you to get in top shape in the meantime! If you plan on a wedding this coming spring or summer, now in the colder time of the year is the ideal time to get fit and in shape and do something for your body!

You would be surprised how easy it can be to lose the one or the other unwanted pound or maybe to build up those abs or butt muscles you always wanted. No matter what, a bit of exercise is the best thing you can do rather than let the winter months go by idly. Comes spring and summer, be assured  you will be thankful for your efforts.

Fortunately, getting in shape for your big day shouldn’t be an issue since you won’t have to look long find a good fitness studio or gym. Almost any town has them today and they have gotten very affordable as well.

However, if you want to get in shape and want to do that properly I recommend that you do not simply sign up with a gym but rather  choose a fitness gym that can offer you personalized training and advice. Not all gyms might offer trainers so it might be worth comparing a few side-by-side. A personalised trainer can tell you about the right exercise routines such as when you want to get a flatter tummy, stronger abs or want to lose the one or the other unwanted pound here or there. You don’t have this type of guidance when you simply get a gym membership card!

A good fitness studio I recommend should you happen to live in or near London is the London Fields Gym. What I like about them is their good selection of exercise equipment and they are very friendly and helpful trainers. They have a bunch of fitness classes you can join. the best thing is tell them about your upcoming wedding, they can help you to get in top form! (And of course this works for your husband to be as well!!)


Proper Wedding Etiquette

wedding-etiquetteWeddings can surely be stressful at times and the fact that what is considered proper wedding etiquette is constantly changing is sure not helping either.

So how would one know what is and what is not acceptable? Just to mention one only asked question, is it acceptable to tell everyone that you would prefer money rather then betting gifts?

If you are unsure about proper wedding etiquette you don’t need to keep in the dark. Let me introduce you to a helpful wedding etiquette guide I found just last week.

The wedding etiquette guide at The Hello Magazine covers such important questions as whom to tell about you are engagement first.

Did you know that it is considered proper to tell your children from previous marriages first rather than informing your parents right away? On the other hand you may possibly agree with what they say that spreading the news on social media be the last thing on your list.

If you want to learn more about today’s proper wedding etiquette I can recommend that you took over this list, it can be very helpful.

Would you love a honeymoon under the sun on a tropical island or would you rather prefer to spend your time in a an exciting city with flair such as Paris? No matter what taste you have, I found a great list with ten of the best luxury honeymoon destinations that I can highly recommend to you!

The honeymoon list at The Telegraph goes over such great exotic destinations like St. Lucia in the Carribean or Niyama in the Maldives. And if you’d like the flair of a world-city, check out their descriptions and tips for a great holiday in Venice or Paris.

Of course, the list has a lot more honeymoon destinations for you but I say it’s best if you check the list for yourself!

What I like about this list is that it also lists the prices for honeymoon packages, that is all the prices including hotel stays and the flights and not all of those luxury honeymoon destinations must cost a fortune!

If however you are on a budget and want to spend your money wisely, how about a camping honeymoon? Make no mistake, such a camping honeymoon can be a lot of fun and is sure not to beat when it comes to excitement! You should see VW campervan hire where you can get started with renting a luxurious campervan for an amazing honeymoon on a budget!
