The lunge is another one of those great exercises for your lower body that you just can't live without. You don't need any equipment, and you can easily do them in front of your TV at home. Like squats, lunges work your glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps and calf muscles. If you can do three sets of 10-15 reps daily, you will have a fabulously slim lower body under your dress on your big day!

To do a lunge, start in a standing position with your shoulders back. Take a step forward with your right foot, placing it a few feet in front of you. Bend both legs to a 90-degree angle until your back knee is close to the ground, but not touching it. Push up with your legs and bring your feet back together into the original standing position. Repeat, placing your left foot forward this time. This counts as one rep.
