In the process, you are left with a bloated body, oily skin and an extremely undesirable pouch in the abdominal area.

Here are a few tips to camouflage the extra bulk and look slim and stunning on your wedding day.

Water retention in your body can make you feel very heavy. A simple solution to avoid this problem is to keep away from salty foods for 8 to 10 hours before the ceremony. Drink lots of water and cranberry juice to flush accumulated fluids out of your body.

Avoid a bloated stomach

Eat your food slowly and avoid carbonated drinks. Eating foods like cabbage, broccoli and legumes will also help you avoid bloating which is caused when excess air enters your digestive system.

Eat light before the ceremony

It is a good idea to have a good, scrumptious meal at the beginning of your day. You can then munch a light snack just before the ceremony to keep the energy up.

Relax! It is your moment

Stay calm, keep a good posture and flash your million dollar smile. Take off attention from those little pockets of flab. You can even add a dash of bronzer on your skin to get a gorgeous finish.

Keep the mini meals coming

Have small snacks at regular intervals instead of one heavy meal. This will make you feel light and energised at the same time.

New hairstyle

Discuss a new look with your hair dresser. Trying new haircuts and hairdos can remove inches from your face instantly, making you look leaner.

Dress up right

Wear smart underwear. Spandex pants hide those unwanted bumps on your body. You can also try accessories and heels to give you the illusion of height and reduced inches from the waistline.

Get some exercise on the D-day

Getting a burst of fresh air with a morning walk followed by a revitalising cup of herbal tea can be a great way to start your D-day. You will feel fresh, light and confident
