In brief: Depends on timing

If 6-8weeks or more away, strict diet and daily exercise can do this.
Best diet for rapid weight loss is a low-carb diet. Exercise should alternate between aerobic and weight training. Keep up the diet and exercise afterwards to keep from re-gaining the weight, as yo-yo'ing is worse for health than steady high weight. If less than 6 weeks away, there really is no healthy way to do this.
