News alert: Every body is a wedding-ready body. While there's nothing wrong with a woman deciding to spend her time as a bride-to-be getting healthy—whether it's to feel as confident as possible while walking down the aisle or just to start off married life on the right foot—your wedding-day body is literally just your body in a wedding dress. Crazy, right?!
Yeahhh, it's definitely not a radical concept, but with the amount of pressure society puts on brides to start shedding for the wedding, it can certainly seem like it. Which is why hearing about a bride-to-be refusing to lose weight for the big day is always so refreshing. The latest lady to just say no? Famous bride-to-be Julianne Hough!
The Dancing With the Stars pro is straight up refusing to lose weight for her nuptials. Amen, sister friend. "If I get super hot for my wedding day and I'm not afterwards, and I'm not before, then it's like, 'Who is this person marrying my fiancé?' Or, 'Who's my fiancé marrying?'" Hough explained to People magazine.
"I don't want to look different than what I look like normally," she said. Preach, girl, preach!
Hough is enjoying her engagement without the pressures of following a strict diet—which means being able to let loose (guilt free) during her recent bachelorette party and relax with a beer the night before her I do's.
Since Hough is a pro dancer, she does keep things pretty healthy most of the time. "This is my lifestyle, so I have cheat days, but if I have a cheat day, the next day I’m really good," she said, adding that she loves mixing up her fitness routine.
"I've been on a Body by Simone, Anna Kaiser, cycling kick, where it's community-based, it's high-energy and great music," said Hough. "I feel like I'm dancing the whole time, whether it's actual dance steps or just moving on the bike. That's so fun. And then I love my CorePower yoga. I’ll do that, and I actually started getting into jump roping recently. I would always kind of do it, but it's so hard!"
Staying active is this lovely lady's job, after all, not to a mention a great way to kick that pre-wedding stress!
