Yes, definately! I am motivated by my VERY NEAR FUTURE BLUE ANGELS WEDDING; my boyfriend (frontrunner for a boyfriend)is my MAIN motivation and I am just thankful I have a motivation because I am not doing this for nothing.
I give this a big, "of course!" Even though my fingers get substantially swollen when I work out, I keep my engagement ring on, just so that when I feel like giving up, I can look down, see that beautiful diamond, and think, wedding dress, wedding dress, wedding dress!
Hmmm...good question. I don't thing the wedding itself is the cause of my general motivation to get in better shape - meeting my then boyfriend/now fiancÚ was the real source of my motivation. There is so much we both want to do/see/experience together and we're both frustrated by the effect of the 9-to-5 desk job on our health.
However, the wedding has definitely given us a tangible target date for our fitness goals!

My wedding was definitely extra motivation for me. It didn't start that way. I just wanted to lose the weight to look better and feel healthier. But once I went dress shopping, I started feeling much more motivated.
It wasn't that I looked bad in the dresses - in fact, many emphasised some of my skinniest parts and made me feel really good about myself. It just made the wedding feel all the more real, and I knew I wanted to look my best on that day, which gave me extra motivation for losing the weight.
Got married May 30th, 2009!
Co-captain of the Buff Brides team! All brides-to-be are more than welcome.
We had a long engagement and I totally slacked on getting healthy and in shape. But as soon as I hit the three month mark, I'm a different person! I am more motivated to work out and eat healthy than I have ever been. I am loving this rush!
I guess the topic says it all, but i bet you have off-days even now? Im scared to set a date cus im a real slacker and i DONT want to look bad @ my wedding :( You have to believe in yourself to make it, too.. And im not sure i do!
