Wedding Diets: Twitterers React To Extreme Pre-Wedding Diets

Posted: Updated:

While pre-wedding diets may not be new to the wedding world, brides are now resorting to horrifyingly extreme measures to shed pounds quickly before they say "I do."

Meanwhile, other brides are trying extreme cleanses, vitamin injections and crash diets in order to lose weight before tying the knot.
