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
