Your phone's on fire with 'maids gushing about their dresses, you've dropped another 4lb and your travel agent's confirmed a honeymoon upgrade. Life is gooood! The wedding is imminent and, like a red-carpet starlet, you're the centre of everyone's attention.

Well, the glitter ball may have stopped spinning, but the wedding whirlwind needn't end just yet. There are plenty of ways to feel fabulous without putting on a white frock; all you need to do is future-proof your happiness!
