You’ve just got engaged (wahey!), but before you go any further have a read of this advice for just engaged couples – this way you’ll both make it down the aisle with a big smile on your face.
“We need to get on the wedding diets now if we want to look tip-top for the big day”
Okay, it goes without saying that you’ll both want to look your best for the big day, but never assume that your other half needs to lose weight – that’s just asking for trouble.
