Don't be fooled by the title; this flexible program is designed to get you into shape for any occasion (it only mentions weddings once or twice). Designed for fast results, all the exercises are proven classics. But it's the DVD programming that's unique. It has two preprogrammed menu options to match the dress style of your big occasion (e.g. if you choose “strapless dress,” it rearranges the chapters into a seven-day schedule of short, upper-body-focused workouts). The exercises are all unusually varied. The cardio ranges from marches and step touches to kicks and lunges. The toning includes lots of tempo changes, angle variations and range-of-motion options. Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. Also includes nine minutes of tips to plan your honeymoon. ©2006.
