As you already know, wedding planning is stressful. The stress tends to build and build as you approach the wedding day. When it comes down to it, you have 2 options; you can either be stressed on your wedding day or you can find ways to relax and make the day more enjoyable. Here are 5 suggestions that will help you to relax as you approach your wedding day.
Get a professional massage
If your wedding planning experience has been more stressful than anticipated, get a professional massage the week of your wedding. We recommend doing this at least 2 days before the wedding do to muscle soreness that commonly follows a massage. We don’t want you having sore muscles on the big day.
Go on a date
You would be surprised at how many couples fail to spend quality time together throughout the wedding planning process. We highly recommend going on a date with your fiancee the week of your wedding. No double or group dates; just the 2 of you. Avoid discussing wedding planning issues, just have a good time.
Hit the gym
Exercise is an excellent way to clear your mind, meditate and relieve stress. Whether you prefer the gym, going for a swim, run, or walk, your body needs some attention especially during your wedding week.
Hit the pause button
Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is hit the pause button. Take a break from what you are doing and just think. Go for a drive or sit on the porch and just meditate. Sometimes it’s a good thing to think through your wedding plans and other times it’s good to clear your mind of all wedding issues. Having a clear mind will help you tremendously during your wedding.
Girl time for the Bride, Guy time for the Groom
Aside of the bachelor and bachelorette parties it’s nice to spend time with your friends. So for all you brides, if you are stressed we subscribe some time off to hang with your girlfriends or sisters. For grooms, hang with the guys whether it be watching a big game, playing video games, or whatever else you enjoy doing.
