Wedding photos

  1. Hi all,
    I got married last may and wore a princess dress, which was strapless and showed my arms etc, it was figure hugging.

    I'm now planning on downsizing from a 16-10

    One thing that really worries me is if I look back at my wedding photos and hate them because I was bigger in them?? Anyone else felt like this? Can anyone give me a different perspective on how I feel??
    Thanks in advance

    P.s. if I knew how to post pictures I would upload some :s

    Will losing weight change the way you think about your wedding day?? Or will you look at those photos and think "that was a fantastic day, and I'm even happier now because I'm slimmer and healthier and in an even better position to have a long and happy marriage"? So many people look back on their wedding photos and wish they were that slim now! Seriously, don't even give it a second thought, your wedding day is a fixed point in time and nothing you do going forward will change what it was like - but you can change your future and if being slimmer is what you want, don't use a set of photos as an excuse to hold yourself back!! And there'll be plenty of other photos in your future, so look forward to them, not back. :) xx
  4. Thanks Tracy, that's made me look at it a different way and makes me feel much happier, thanks. I suppose I have more things to look forward to. We are going to try for a baby in late October :) I want to be a yummy mummy not a fatty mummy!!!

    And you will be, and you'll have some fantastic photos taken with your baby! But your wedding photos will always be special no matter how much you change. Glad I could help a little bit. :) xx

    RawrGirl Regained. :(

    You could also do a shoot in your dress (and have it taken in) at a park or some beautiful setting. RawrGirl thought about doing that as she was quite depressed over it for awhile. But now (2+ years later and almost at goal), it doesn't bother her as much and she has some wedding photos she likes, so she is just planning a sexy photo shoot when she reaches goal.

    I'm planning the same. When heavier I had some shots done and when I get them I plan to put all of them up together to remind me how far I've come.
