There’s no doubt that wedding planning can become an overwhelming project for you and your spouse. Especially as we enter the Holiday season, it can feel like your list of to-dos doesn’t have an end. If you’ve found yourself spending every weekend and afternoon off calling vendors and editing seating charts, then it’s time to take a break!
Here are 6 ways you can de-stress before your wedding day.
Be smart about your planning
It’s important to balance the fun planning, like cake tasting and make-up trials, with the more daunting tasks, like rounding up RSVPs. Powering through the tough tasks with the promise of rewarding time for you at the end is a great way to stay motivated and positive through the process.
Invite your friends to help
Your family and friends are also excited about your big day, and many will be happy to help you prepare! Invite your friends for a Saturday in of movies, drinks, and addressing invites to enjoy some quality time while getting ahead on your planning. Making these tasks fun for everyone helps it feel less like a chore and creates meaningful memories of your wedding planning days.
Plan a spa day at home
Few things beat a good facial to help you relax and recharge. These spa day printables are perfect for a self-care day for yourself, a date night with your partner, or a weekend celebrating with your bridal party. Create DIY hair masks and facials, get a nail polish that matches your wedding colors, then sit back and relax!
Go on a date with your fiancé
Wedding planning is a huge amount of work and it’s always good to reconnect with your partner to enjoy time together without talking about the wedding. Revisit your first date spot, enjoy a meal from your favorite restaurant, or plan a game night for two. Whatever brought you together in the first place is a great way to spark all of your excitement with none of the stress.
Prioritize your health
The key to stress management is always putting your health first. If you’ve been skipping weekly yoga to meet with your planner, adjust your schedule to make sure you can still sweat the stress out. Make sure you’re eating well, too. A balanced diet can regulate your body and emotions, helping you feel more energized and in control.
Take a week off
You deserve a break from planning, so don’t be afraid to take a week off. If you have any must-dos, see if you can delegate the tasks to your parents, wedding party, or wedding planner. This week is all about you and your favorite things, so grab a good book, plan a day with your friends, and enjoy a week without wedding stress. Everything will still be there when you get back, and nothing is more important than you’re well-being.
