Skipping a meal never works but eating mindlessly also never helps as well. Hence, even though there would be a plethora of cuisines in front of your eyes – watch out for your portions. Don’t gobble oily snacks at all, instead stick to healthy appetizers like salad, nachos, a bit of pizza, and masala corn.

I know this is not easy when you are busy with the stuff around you, but I bet, that it will the best decision. This will help you stay energetic, fit, and active. So, take some time out and move your body.
Apart from the bride and groom, wedding buffets are the only thing that looks attractive at weddings. And let’s not forget the face of relatives – they can literally convince you to eat anything and everything. But it would be best if you got a bit picky here, stay strict with yourself. Carb-loaded foods should be on the don’ts side of your do’s and don’ts list.
Not just food, do your running, gymming, swimming, aerobics, and yoga on D-day. All these activities will bring out the glow within you.
4. Stay hydrated:
Water – Probably the best calorie-free drink you can have in the wedding season to stay fit. It will keep your glow alive, trust me. 😛
During any festivities, always make water your best buddy. Carry your water bottle everywhere just the way you never leave your phone. Sip water at regular intervals so that you stay hydrated and don’t end up drinking unwanted juices or milkshakes.
If you want something sweet to resist the heat, you can pack up some coconut or lemon water – these are refreshing. Also, you can befriend coffee as well since it increases body metabolism and burns fats.
5. Dance your heart out:
Dancing is the best thing you could do to stay fit and this is not only about the wedding season. 😛 You can consider it as a workout and burn some additional calories.
The best way to stay fit in the wedding season is by burning the dance floor whenever you get the chance. Dancing is the best cardio you can do even while putting up your favorite makeup. Also, let’s not forget how it can refresh your mood from within and take out all the stress you have been carrying for months.

And remember to not get strict on yourself, after all, weddings are here to make people smile and glow your way out, you are beautiful any which way!
