Planning a wedding can be stressful and sometimes there's no better stress reliever than a glass of wine and a brownie (or whatever your vice is). The thing about our vices, however, is sometimes they can do a number on your waistline, adding to the stress of your wedding. It's a vicious - yet understandable - cycle.
But there ways to stay in shape leading up to your wedding, ensuring you can look good in a wedding dress (or tuxedo -- we got you, guys). Check out our plan for a full-body wedding workout you can do almost anywhere:
