yes for my first (size 16) no for my second (size 12) would be if I got married again now...fortunately my DH doesn't plan to trade me in (I hope !!!)

I wore a size 20 wedding dress (was probably more like a size 16 in real life) but I looked pretty good. Had been going to the gym a lot and had been healthy eating but nothing drastic. A few pics here if you're interested.

So not important at all IMO!

I got married 2 and half months after having dd so I still had a bumpy belly. If I sucked it in you couldn't see it but really, how long can you do that for?

So I slipped my dress on and my Nan comes to have a look. Instead of saying "oh you look beautiful, nice, ok, that'll do" she said " oh god look at your belly, you can't go out like that. You can wear my support pants"

So instead of wearing my sexy matching bra/pants, I wore my Nans (new) support pants!

I don't know if that helps but it normally makes people chuckle when I tell them.

Anyway im probably going to be whats classed as over wieght for my wedding when it happens but i think any bride is lovley looking what ever size.

But in answer to your question most cetainly not important.

Gorgeous pictures anchovies, you looked lovely.

was a size 12-14 when i got married, but def not now. am starting lighter life when i come back from holiday as have a lot to lose at the moment.

dh told me the other day that i didn't need to lose the weight for him, promptly told him not losing it for him losing it for myself!

don't really think that it is that important, infact at my lighterlife intro meeting a woamn was starting it that had got married on the saturday before, so she obviously didn't feel that it was that important.

i think if you are happy and pleased to be getting married it doesn't matter if you are a size 8 or 28 walking down that aisle!

You looked gorgeous hula! I'm glad you looked as young as I did, I was 25 too, everyone said I looked 18!

Hulababy Mon 15-Aug-05 21:17:04

Those were the days I guess. I still look younger than I am, but since having DD I have started to look older!
