6 Reasons Not To Starve Yourself For Your Wedding

May 05, 2015 2 min read

There is no doubt that your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life. However, the weight that goes in to, well, weight, of most brides' can surpass the importance of all amazing reasons you're getting married in the first place. As a trainer, I've seen women LOSE THEIR MINDS over not being a size 6 for their wedding (even though they've never been a size 6 at any point in their lives). Ladies (and gents), our love and happiness on this day IS NOT determined by the size you wear. Sure, it can make you feel like a million bucks and I commend every person that wants to feel like the absolutely best version themselves on this special day - but why not take a step back and consider some of the reasons you shouldn't try and crash diet to shed the pounds?

You Don't Want to Be "Hangry"

Ever get super grouchy when you haven't eaten anything and unnecessarily rip someones head off? That's hangry - hungry angry.  Yeah - don't add that stress to your wedding day.

You Need To Be Well Fed To Think

You have a list a mile long of things you need to do: events, times, invitations. You can't possibly keep a clear head if you aren't well fed (I'm going to trademark that rhyme)

"Who the Heck is That?"

Is NOT what you want to be saying when you're looking at your own wedding photo. Dramatic changes are amazing - but not if it's something that you did in an unhealthy way that is going to prevent you from keeping your results. Plus - how depressing would it be to not look like that again in 4 months time?

Food Tastings

Food is a pretty essential part of weddings. Are you really going to deny yourself all of the cake tastings? Really?

Loving Your Body May Inspire Someone Else

Most bridal magazine show your standard model: long, lanky, gorgeous. Why not show the world you don't need to look exactly like that to look gorgeous on your wedding?

You're Starting Your Life With Someone

Keyword: STARTING. Why not start your life as the you your partner fell in love with instead of the one that "isn't good enough for them"? Yes. He/she loved you (ALL of you), enough to marry you. This means, they see no reason for you to change at all.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
