Pre-Wedding Diet Plan For Brides-To-Be

Let The Water Keep Flowing

Yes I stress on this almost in every post!
Drink atleast six to eight glasses of water per day. You can increase or decrease based on how much your body demands!

Drink Enough Water

Its a myth that you mustn't drink more than 8 glasses in a day. Water  can be consumed based on your body requirements and you don't have to be bothered if you seem to be drinking more.

Soaked Almonds For The Win

Start your day with 4-5 soaked almonds.
Almonds are packed with essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin E, zinc, calcium, magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids that holds so many benefits for your health, skin, nails & hair.
It helps digestion, boosts your brain, the folic acid in it helps energy gain for pregnant women, controls cholesterol, prevents heart problems, gives shining tresses when used as a hair mask, gives you amazing skin and much more!
Beginning your day with soaked almonds definitely kick starts your day!

Soaked Almonds

Go Nuts For Nuts

Include handful of nuts like almonds, cashews, walnuts, Pistachios and also some dry fruits like raisins, cranberries, blackcurrants, apricots, prunes too to get that amazing skin.

Nuts For Bride-To-Be

But make sure not to have more than a handful as anything consumed more than it must be is injurious! Especially limit the cashews as they tend to add up weight if consumed more.

The Lemon-y Option

After consuming the almonds, drink a glass of warm lemon water. You can add honey to it if you like. This is the super drink that helps you get glowing skin and has a lot of health benefits too because lemons are a rich source of Vitamin C and anti-oxidants and consuming a glass of lemon drink everyday has great benefits.

Benefits Of Lemon Juice

Detoxify Yourself

A thorough detoxification helps you get that bridal glow. Although detox waters don't taste amazing they do wonders to your skin.
So do try atleast one detox drink a day to become that super glowing bride!

The ABC Juice

This is a wonderful juice that gives excellent benefits for your brain, skin, relieves stress and keeps you peppy all day long!
It's Apple Beetroot Carrot juice ;)
Pick a big juicy apple, a quarter beetroot, a full carrot and make juice out of it. Strain it well and consume it once or twice in a day and enjoy the benefits :)

ABC juice

I like to consume it with the pulp as it has more benefits than the juice alone. Also if you are a fan of pineapple flavour you can replace apple with 4-5 pineapple slices.

Greens Are Always There For You

Include more leafy green vegetables in your food as greens are loaded with vitamins and minerals that hold immense health benefits.


Be A Fruit-y Pie

Consume atleast one fruit in a day - in the form of fruit and not as juice as raw fruits have more benefits than juice.

Balanced Diet

Seeds That Give You What You Want

Include seeds like chia seeds, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, cucumber seeds in your salads, oats, smoothies etc as they give you amazingggg skin.


The Green Tea Miracle

Drink one to two glasses of green tea in a day to kick your metabolism, avoid constipation through the day, and again get that glowy skin ;)

Green Tea

Proteins To Protect You

Add up more lean proteins - salmon and red meat is a good choice and if you are a vegetarian include 100-200 gms of beans\sprouts\groundnuts everyday.
Being a south indian and a pucca tamilian I prefer a bowl of sundal everyday.


Foods to avoid

  • Caffeine - I know I know being a south indian one can never avoid this but you must as much as possible and atleast don't have ceffeinated drinks on the day before and the day of your wedding to feel light!
  • Avoid very spicy or salty foods as they bloat you up.
  • Get rid of that chewing gums you keep storing atleast for a week before your wedding as the artificial sweeteners in them kill your spirit.

  • Reduce sugar consumption as it helps keep your GI in check.
  • A big no to carbonated drinks & sodas and you know why!
  • High fat foods like chips and any packaged & processed foods
  • Minimize the consumption of cheese and other milk based products atleast for a week before wedding.
Keep these tips in mind, eat a balanced meal, relax, refresh and keep calm - things will go as planned on your big day😊
Wish you good luck and see you in next post. Until then XO XO
