If you’re one of the lucky gals walking down the aisle this year, you’ve probably got a million things on your to-do list. Between the guest list, invitations and dress shopping, we know that wedding planning can start to feel stressful. One easy way to combat stress? Add a fun workout routine to your schedule that will have you feeling stronger and confident on your big day and every day leading up to it.

It’s all about toning those legs. No matter what type of dress you’re rockin’, we’ve found the perfect exercises for you.
