The Bride's Bucket List

First things first: what is a bride’s bucket list? It’s a list of all the things or dreams a woman wants to fulfill or accomplish before she gets married. For most brides the year or so leading up to the wedding is consumed with wedding planning; however, we recommend during that year or so of engagement that you give yourself some time to cross some things off your personal bride’s bucket list. Taking a trip to visit your old college stomping ground with your roommates, dropping 10 pounds, and learning to SCUBA dive are all things a woman might consider adding to her list.
It’s important to have done some things for yourself before entering a new life as the new Mrs. So and So. While you may not be able to cross off every single thing you’ve always wanted to do as a single gal (We’re sure running with the bulls in Pamplona would have been awesome, too) we’re more than happy to help you put together a list of things you should definitely try to do before you get hitched. There’s no time like the present!
This weeks’ bucket list entry is:

If you never miss a season of Dancing with the Stars and feel a pang of regret that you’ll never be able to audition for So You Think You Can Dance, then you may be suppressing a passion to learn to dance. Find a local instructor offering classes that would work within your time and budget and go for it! A twice weekly salsa session (or boudoir show girl session- you know you want to!) may not only be the stress reliever you need, it may also prove to be the fun workout that makes the difference between a cover-all wedding dress and a sexy, high-slit number you’ve always wanted.
You may find it a little bit more challenging to fit in dance classes after you’re married and probably thinking of starting a family. So don’t wait until you’re too busy being wife and mom to get in a dance class or two. Besides, your soon-to-be would probably be really impressed by your new dance moves and your happy disposition at fulfilling a secret passion.
