Anchor Chooses Dress Carefully

These are the days of Trolling and Bullying on social media. Politicians get trolled for their remarks and comments, actors get trolled for their choice of script and actresses are being trolled for they type of dress they wear at events.

Ind-Pak Match: Anchor Chooses Dress Carefully

Images: plus size wedding dresses

Recently after the way some people trolled Priyanka Chopra quite derogatorily for her short skirt while meeting PM Narendra Modi, Deepika Padukone too face the embarrassment for her Maxim magazine photo shoot. And then, we have anchor Mayanti Langer abused by trollers for wearing a thigh-revealing folded designer dress while anchoring the India-Pakistan league match in the Champions Trophy.

Though this hottest anchor in the cricketing circuits has chosen not to respond to such worst social media attacks, she made sure that her appearance will not create any such unwanted attention and criticism. For Sunday's Ind-Pak final match in the Champions Trophy, she has come out with a soft looking white outfit, which looked very well on her and this time without any glamorous show.

Mayanti might have taken a safe route to present herself but her terrific talkativeness with huge insight on cricket and emotions doesn't need glamour support. Still, people must first learn to respect her choice even if she turns up in a hotter outfit.

Wedding day dream

A perfect wedding day dream has come true for a terminally ill mum of three – thanks to friends and neighbours.

They raised nearly £2,000 to make sure Vickie Bone, from Castle Donington, could marry her partner of four years, Ian Plimmer.

The 35-year-old was diagnosed with breast cancer in November last year. Four days later she was told it had spread to her liver and was not curable.

Vickie, who is mother to Liam, who is nearly one, Kaiden, six, and Jakob, eight, was devastated and feared her dream of marrying Ian would not happen due to her worsening diagnosis.

Neighbour Jess Limb, 32, was so touched my her plight she stepped in and set up a justgiving page to fund the wedding at The Venue in Ashbourne

Vickie, a community nurse, said: "Thanks to everyone it was an amazing day – it was just perfect.

"I haven't even begun my thank-yous to so many people who did so much.

"I just haven't got the words, the day was just perfect."

She was given away by her mum, Trudi, and her three sons were page boys.

Vickie said: "We had about 40 guests, it was a very intimate wedding. Ian is a very quiet person but he was more emotional than me and my son Jakob cried more than me.

"We were very spoilt. There was a gorgeous wedding cake and 100 cup cakes as well as a chocolate fountain – it was just amazing."

Vickie is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment. She said: "I get very tired but I have three kids and you just have to get on with it. I am just trying to live with it.

"I have been told the cancer is incurable and that is very hard."

As well as making her wedding possible, Vickie has been overwhelmed by the generosity of her friends and family.

She has had tickets for Conkers activity centre posted through the door, with a note saying "have a wonderful day", but no contact details.

After reading about Vickie in the Mercury, Merlin's Magic Wand, offered her and the family a trip to the Legoland Windsor Resort. She said: "The two older boys are mad on Lego. They have gone on about Legoland and I promised I would take them at some point."

Vickie hopes she will be well enough to make the trip in August but is keeping it a surprise from the children until the day before they go.

wedding dresses Style

These dresses made from redesigned antique kimonos should definitely make the bride feel special on her big day!

Kyoto-based wedding planner Watabe Wedding recently announced that they have started making their unique line of “Shoen” dresses available on a rental basis. And what makes this line of dresses so unique? The dresses are all made from authentic antique furisode kimonos.

Watabe Wedding first released the Shoen line of dresses in February of 2016, mainly for sale to hotels and wedding venues around Japan, but they have now started renting out the dresses to hopefully make them available for use in overseas weddings, post-wedding parties, and more

They’re now renting these five stunning gowns from the Shoen line:

1. The Tsurumomiji (crane maple): This an a-line dress in vivid red, illustrated with cranes flying in the autumn sky. Images of chrysanthemums, maples, and a blue river running through the lower half of the dress complete the look.

2. The Fujiageha (wisteria and swallowtail butterfly): This high-waisted dress features beautifully embroidered swallowtail butterflies against a backdrop of wisteria flowers and a beautiful gradation of yellow, black, gold and red colors.

3. The Ranbu (orchid dance): This mermaid-line dress is designed with flower petal-like frills on the back and adorned with luxurious patterns of pink phalaenopsis orchids. The specific type of orchid in pink apparently conveys the message “I love you”, so this is a particularly appropriate and lucky design for a wedding dress.

4. The Kanazuru (gold crane): The gold cranes depicted on a cloth of vibrant red gives this sleek dress both a luxurious and bold feel. The black chiffon material further adds to the elegance.

5. The Botangiku (peony and chrysanthemum): This a-line dress stuns with its rich, pink base color containing spun gold and a dazzling pattern of various flowers including peonies and chrysanthemums, making it a virtual floral bouquet on silk.

The five dresses are available for rental for prices ranging from 50,000 yen to 150,000 yen (US$453 to 1,359).

If you have plans to be a bride in Japan, and if you don’t conveniently own a formal furisode kimono that may be folded and arranged into a western-style dress, this could be the perfect way to add a uniquely Japanese element to your wedding wardrobe. And even if you’re not in need of a wedding gown, we’re sure you’ll agree with us that the dresses are still a delight to look at!

Wedding Vows

Whether you're a bride, a groom, or a guest, wedding vows are important. In just a few minutes, while surrounded by family and friends, a couple is expected to unveil something deeply personal—the groundwork for their future together—including sentiment, sometimes humor, and memories. That's why more couples are leaning toward writing their own vows, or altering the traditional ones, to kick off a lifetime together as equal partners.

In 1981, Princess Diana made headlines when she chose not to include the word "obey" in her vows to Prince Charles. Instead, she promised to ''love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, in sickness and in health," giving way to an ongoing, international discussion about the language used during a wedding ceremony. And in 2011, Kate Middleton took the same approach when she married the late royal's son, Prince William.

Twenty-six years later, modern-day brides are still poring over how to pen wedding vows that are rooted in both reflection and equality. So was the case for Chloe Pinkerton as she prepared to marry Ross Kennedy-Shaffer on a sweltering July day last summer. As their wedding date approached, Pinkerton realized how important the language used in their vows would be.

"We wanted there to be balance in the opening lines; we didn't want [our vows] to be identical because we're different people working on different things, but we wanted to make sure each person's promise was met with a similar one," Pinkerton explains. "The word 'partner' (rather than 'husband,' 'wife,' or 'spouse') was important to us because it involves the idea of equality and doesn't have any of the possession connotations that some of the other partnership words involve. We also wanted to steer clear of the idea that men and women have defined, gendered roles in a relationship."

The couple also chose not to use some of the more common phrases, like "to have and to hold" and to "take [your partner]" because, as Pinkerton explained, "the language felt very ownership-centric, and as a result, dehumanizing."

Ultimately, they decided on five simple statements that embodied the life they hoped to create together:

I promise to love and support you as you continue to grow and learn.

I promise to make time to play your favorite games and mine.

I promise to try to make the world a better place with you.

I promise to laugh with you and cry with you through good times and bad.

Most of all, I promise to be your equal partner forever.

While some couples opt to write their own vows to ensure a balanced exchange, others choose to revise the familiar, giving new meaning to the familiar phrase "to love, honor, and obey."

When Peter Rocco and Marie-Ellen Ehounou tied the knot last May, the couple modified traditional vows so that "honor and obey" would be excluded.

"Our attitude was kind of: 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it,'" Rocco explains. "I think the traditional vows end up capturing most of what people try to say when they write their own anyway—with some minor tweaks in our case."

Despite using traditional vows as guidelines, the couple did make it clear they were entering an "equal loving partnership."

"I felt pretty strongly that it was important to have something about partnership even if we didn't call each other partners," Ehounou says.

But for Abigail Myers, a forward-thinking approach to marriage was built into her ceremony via her officiant and church. When writing her vows, Myers says she "didn't have to think too hard about shedding the patriarchal elements of a traditional Christian wedding because our church is famously, wildly progressive, and our (female) pastor is a fierce feminist, so we trusted her implicitly and absolutely to use egalitarian wording."

If you're looking to pen your own—or modify the traditional—writer Fiona Tapp suggests some key concepts to use as inspiration:

I promise to support your ambitions and dreams.

I will comfort you when you can't be strong, and I will lean on you when you can.

And, most simply of all…I will love you.

Lose Weight

When it came to starting a wedding diet, I procastinated. Hard. In fact, a month before the big day I went on a work trip to Morocco and Paris where I ate all of the bread, butter, and chocolate my appetite desired (as one does). Which is all part of the how I found myself muffin-topping over the sides of my strapless Reem Acra gown (pictured, top left) at my last fitting, just two weeks before I was supposed to walk down the aisle.

I'll admit, I was bloated at the time from my period, so when it ended a few days before my wedding, my body tightened. But, I was also up a few pounds. Instead of accepting it, I took about four private workout sessions per week with celebrity trainer David Kirsch. The pro is responsible for sculpting the bodies of celebrities (like Jennifer Lopez and Heidi Klum) and has a wealth of fitness and health knowledge (to recap, he's written five books, has his own line of shakes and supplements, and owns a top-notch NYC gym). He put me on a routine that was a mix of cardio, strength training, HIIT, and TRX. Every time we met up, the moves and sequences were different, which kept my body guessing and metabolism revved.

But anyone who has successfully lost weight knows diet is more than half of the battle. And pre-getting "Kirsched," I had been working out almost every day anyways. So I do credit his eating plan for partly pushing those five extra pounds off of my body.

Here, I am going to share exactly what I ate — and most importantly, did not eat! — to shed the lbs, so my dress fit perfectly (top right). Note, the dress was not taken in or out between the two images, but my body actually transformed in two weeks!

"In my experience working with a bride-to-be, the last couple of weeks leading up to the wedding is uber stressful," Kirsch told me. "As you can attest to personally (Lauren), slight tweaking of your diet will go a long way to keeping you optimally energized, fueled, and looking your very best on the big day!"

Let's start with the hard part, things to avoid according to Kirsch:

Say goodbye to pizza, because you will not be eating processed carbs (bread, pasta, crackers, etc.) or dairy. "I have found that dairy can cause bloating, and who wants to be bloated on their day?" Kirsch said. And no whole grains or potatoes either.

I have personally eliminated both gluten and dairy for weeks and added them back to reveal that I am not intolerant to either. I can have a slice of pizza and feel like a peach, but kicking them out of my diet definitely made my belly flatter. After three days of no carbs, I was craving them! So I texted Kirsch asking if I could have a sweet potato. He told me to crunch on celery instead. It took willpower to follow his advice, but it was worth it. I surely enjoyed sliding into my bathing suit when I arrived at my tropical honeymoon a few days after my wedding.

You'll also need to revamp your drinking game. That means, no alcohol (NONE!). While this meant sitting through events, family dinners, and bar nights totally sober, I enjoyed the mental clarity and increased energy in the mornings. "Save the glass of champagne for after you walk down the aisle!" he said. And yes, I got to enjoy a few flutes of well-earned bubbly at my affair . . . and a margarita!

I also had to limit the amount of coffee I drank. Kirsch recommends having one espresso in the morning. While I stuck to brewed coffee beans, I drank it black. I didn't even add almond milk, and I swear it makes a difference in better digestion.

Kirsch believes that "too much coffee can lead to belly bloat!" Think about it, coffee dehydrates you, so you retain water to hold on to it. Instead, switch over to green tea, which has both caffeine and antioxidants. Every morning, I also had one of his A.M. Detox Drinks (it's yummy and fantastic for your skin!). You can see it in the mason jar above.

Finally, the hardest (for me, since I have a sweet tooth): no sugar. Even dark chocolate. OK, I may have had a handful of dark chocolate-covered almonds one rough night, but for the most part (like 95 percent) I kissed my beloved cookies, ice cream, and cupcakes goodbye. In fact, my husband hid the chocolate on a very high shelf so I could not reach or find it in our apartment. Do what you need to do to survive, brides!

Now onto what you can eat. Disclaimer, this was not Kirsch's exact plan but one loosely based off his advice and what I know works best for my body.

For breakfast I stuck to two options. The first, two eggs and sauteed spinach, all cooked in EVOO. Earlier in my wedding prep, I enjoyed that dish with a side of avocado, but the last two weeks I cut it based on Kirsch's recommendation to limit my fat intake (even healthy ones!). Otherwise, I had an antioxidant-rich bowl of unsweetened coconut yogurt with a handful of raw almonds, chia seeds, flax seeds, cacao nibs, and blueberries. While Kirsch recommended no fruit (remember, no sugar!), I know blueberries are good for eliminating belly fat and making skin glow, so I had some anyways. If you're going to have sugar, eat it in the morning so you can burn it off throughout the day.

When it came to snacks, I sipped on dark green pressed juice (the kind without fruit) and crunchy veggies (Kirsch likes celery, red peppers, and jicama sticks). I also ate GoMacro bars, which were referred to me by another trainer I'd been working out with, Steve Pasterino. I bent the rules a little since these are made with brown rice syrup, but it ensured that I had an option when I was on-the-go.

Dinner and lunch were pretty similar. I'd either have what I dubbed a "Sad Salad" of spinach, crunchy water veggies (cucumber and snow peas), and lean protein (homemade chicken or salmon with no sauces) — all drizzled with EVOO and a lemon squeeze. Snooze. Otherwise, I would cook veggies (such as steamed green beans or asparagus) and have it with the aforementioned lean meat or fish. Sometimes, I would even have the eggs (see: breakfast!) for dinner, which I found very easy to digest. Occasionally, I'd enjoy a green smoothie (kale, spinach, blueberries, almond milk) with pea protein powder.

And for our grand finale, what to eat during your actual wedding weekend:

By then being a bride had taken over my identity (it happens to the best and most chill of us ladies in white). So I brought my own food to the weekend destination, including unsweetened coconut yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, green juice, nuts, seeds, bars, etc. I made sure my hotel room had a fridge to store it in.

"The day before is a day that you want to make sure to put the finishing touches," said Kirsch. "You have planned hard, sweated hard, and stayed away from the obvious no-nos. What else can you do? I suggest a relaxing massage, sauna, and steam. Eating foods like asparagus and celery will help keep you full and debloat you."

So I couldn't resist a taste of homemade pasta during our rehearsal dinner at a delicious Italian restaurant, but by 7 a.m. the next day, I was back on it.

"The day of, I would have a couple of eggs in the morning and oatmeal as you will need the energy and fuel for the rest of the day," Kirsch recommended. "A protein shake for lunch and water for the rest of the day. Save the drinking and eating for after the ceremony, or better yet, for the honeymoon!"

Here's what I consumed for breakfast on my wedding day: I had the antioxidant yogurt and seed bowl as well as black coffee; for lunch I ate a simple salad with grilled chicken provided by my venue; and for snack, I went with a GoMacro bar. After the ceremony, my husband and I sat in a separate room and ate every single appetizer (including pork buns, pulled BBQ chicken, mini grilled cheese sandwiches, and more!) and drank champagne. Diet. Over. As the evening went on, I enjoyed the goat cheese salad (CHEESE!), the short rib and sweet potato entree, wedding cake, homemade cookies, and apple cider donuts. There was pizza at our afterparty. I ate that, too.

Was dieting fun? No. Was it satisfying? Absolutely not. Was it worth it? Hell yes! For two weeks, you can do this! And you likely will lose inches, but you have to stick to it almost perfectly. We all have our handful of dark chocolate almonds here and there, but make sure you get right back on track. The best part in addition to your tight bod? You can pig out on your honeymoon! (On mine, I sure did my job consuming all of the noodles and dumplings Southeast Asia had to offer . . . and that is another story. Next up: How to get back your hot wedding bod of yesteryear.)
