When brides-to-be shop for that perfect dress for their wedding day, they often have a vision of what they will look like in it.
Sometimes that vision includes a skinnier or more toned body. But how do they make that a reality?
A team of personal trainers from Club Fitness 24 hopes to answer that question during this weekend’s Greater Kokomo Bridal Gala.
They will join 34 other vendors at the annual event.
Organizer Jeff Hodson said he was trying something new when he invited them to the show. This is the first time in eight years he’s had gym representatives for engaged couples to talk to.
“I’ve never met a bride who doesn’t want to look her best on her wedding day,” Hodson said. “And it’s not uncommon for the guys to hit the gym, too.”
Personal trainers will help couples come up with personalized packages to fit their needs and their visions for the big day.
Some might want to lose 40 pounds, and the trainers can help them do that, said Club Fitness 24 Business Manager Chris Bishop.
It will be much easier to help couples if trainers catch them early in the wedding-planning process. If a stressed-out bride comes to them a month before the wedding, there may not be enough time left to help her achieve her goals.
“We can do wonders in a month,” Bishop said. “We can’t do miracles.”
The gym will join other local vendors. It will be a who’s who of the local wedding industry, Hodson said.
There will be cake decorators, photographers, venue managers, caterers, photo booths vendors, videographers, DJs, wedding planners, and dress and tux shop representatives.
This is the bigger of Hodson’s two bridal shows. It’s the perfect time of year to plan a wedding because many couples are just getting engaged. The time between Christmas and New Year’s is the most popular time to pop the question, he said.
