Coffee Chat~ Love at First Sight, Embarrassing Stories, & How K&K met B&B!
Did you know that Bobby proposed to me in front of 400 Tone It Up Girls at our retreat?! Or that Kat fell in love with Brian the first time she met him when she saw him singing and playing guitar? Today we’re sharing all our love confessions and embarrassing stories with our girlfriend Emily DiDonato. You may remember Emily from her Beautiful Yoga Flow a few weeks ago. In addition to being a supermodel and a yoga instructor, Emily is also a #TIUbride! She’s getting ready for her wedding to her fiancé Kyle! She told us all about how they met on a plane in our chat HERE! Cutest story ever!
In today’s coffee chat, we’re giving her our best advice for brides and bridesmaids and revealing how we met and fell in love with Bobby and Brian.
Aaaand…you may just get to hear Brian sing!! Seriously…these video clips of him singing don’t even do him justice- mainly bc Kat’s sneaking him with a cellphone recording, lol. You’ll see it and hear it…
He has the most soulful, beautiful, and authentic voice I’ve ever heard in my life- and I watch ‘The Voice’ every week! The first time I heard him I was crying out of love – and pure shock. I’m always in awe that he has such a raw talent with so much range. Kat might be getting in trouble for this today, but maybe we can get Brian to do some YouTube covers for the community from this!

Our top tips for TIU brides & bridesmaids ~
It’s your day!
This day is all about you and your boo so do whatever feels special to you. Lots of people will offer advice and may even try to sway your decisions ~ but you do you girl. This is your day!
Put fitness on your checklist
As your wedding approaches, there will be a million things on your to-do list so don’t forget to prioritize yourself and your health. Try to get your Daily Workout done first thing in the morning or pencil it in to your wedding checklist. And whenever you’re chatting with your fiancé about the wedding and making decisions, take it outside and go for a stroll. You can get planning and cardio in at the same time. Win, win!
Say YES to different dresses
When I first started thinking about my wedding dress, I was sure I didn’t want a train or anything sparkly…and then I ended up with both!! I fell in love with a dress that I never expected so my advice is to be open minded and take some risks with what you try on. You never know what your’e going to love!
Check in with each other
If you’re stressing about wedding stuff, know that TIU brides around the world have your back! We can all offer each other advice and support. Check in with the hashtag #TIUbride to meet some amazing new girlfriends!
And most importantly….always bring snacks
I learned this as a bridesmaid. While running around doing errands and dress shopping, brides sometimes forget to eat or hydrate. Kat even fainted during her final dress fitting because I wasn’t there with snacks—and she locked out her knees for over an hour!!! As a bride or a bridesmaid, always carry your water bottle with you and pack a stash of Tone It Up Nutrition Plan approved foods like a Tone It Up Protein Bar, nuts, homemade trail mix, or mini protein muffins. These will be life savers!
Here’s us shopping for Kat’s dress! We got a limo, sipped some bubbly, and made sure to take a lunch break!
