You want to look the best on the wedding day (duh, of course) and I have found a new tool that helps you slim down and shape up leading up to your wedding. The Gym Coach is a great four week program to get fit for a wedding day. Whether you are are a bride, bridesmaid of wedding guest, this program will help you firm and tone and look your best. I first learned of this company in my Engage 10Swag Bag in Cayman Islands. What a fun and easy concept to get in shape. It is 20 cards with step-by-step exercises and cardio routines. It is designed as a four week plan but you can start using it months out from your wedding and repeat the plan and up the weights. At only $24.95 for the whole set for a month this is an affordable option. So get off the couch and get shaping up!
h2. Activities Pre- and post-wedding activities are also becoming very popular for couples who want their guests to enjoy a “fall wedding weekend” in Chicago. Some couples are taking their guests on “ghost walks” around the Chicagoland area. Others are going apple-picking on the day before the wedding or as a post-wedding brunch the day after! A few couples are bringing their guests on the Chicago Architectural Cruise and then dining at the Signature Room on the 95th floor of the John Hancock building. Fall is a big time for sports buffs in Chicago. One any given Saturday or Sunday you will see scores of wedding guests watching their favorite teams win in sports bars around the city. A few grooms are embracing the new chilly weather by organizing golf outings on the Friday or even the morning of the wedding day. Brides, on the other hand, are enjoying spa outings, and then following them up with an afternoon tea at The Drake, The Ritz or The Peninsula Hotel. As you can see, summers aren’t the only time to get married in Chicago. The fall is bursting with so many exciting ideas to celebrate your wedding in our fair city. Have fun! Take advantage of what the season has to offer. And, be willing to try something new. Your guests will have a blast, no matter what! Copyright 2004 Wedding Chicago, inc. All rights reserved.
