in the months leading up to my wedding,

I kept waking in a panic from the same dream: I was walking down the aisle, out of time, and my hair was soaking wet. Every bride I’ve encountered has had some version of a stress dream, though, so if you do too, be assured you are not alone with your anxieties—and everything is going to be okay. For instance, when my wedding day arrived, I had plenty of time—and my hair came out exactly as I had envisioned it.

step off the scale

“Are you shedding for the wedding?” a friend asked when I ordered a salad during a recent dinner date. (Shocker, I know.) I must’ve looked confused because she hurriedly explained the concept of dropping a dress size for the big day and scrambled to change the subject. I mean, I’d heard of wedding diets, but I was surprised this was considered OK dinner conversation. What bothered me most: that cutesy phrase. It made a seriously loaded question sound offhand, and it made me wonder just how typical it was to assume that brides were losing weight for their weddings. So as soon as I got home, I googled “shedding for the wedding.” The first result was a Wikipedia page about a reality show that was—to my satisfaction—evidently canceled after a…
