How To Stay Sress-Free Before Your Wedding

Planning a wedding can be stressful and it can have some disturbing effects on your life an your relationship with other especially your fiance. Below are some suggestions to help you stay stress free:

1. Delegate

You can’t handle everything by yourself. No matter how great you think you are, you can’t do it all.  Weddings are major endeavors, so enlist friends and family to help make place cards, tie bows onto favors, and run errands.

2. Pamper Yourself

Schedule weekly or bi-weekly appointments  with your hairdresser or with your favorite spa. Put it in your budget for the period you are planning your wedding. A massage, a facial, or even a manicure and pedicure in a spa setting can do wonders for your stress levels.

3. Find An Outlet

Do yoga, walk, run, dance, talk, write, join a gym. Find some way that will help you escape when you need to.

4.  Stay Healthy

If you haven’t yet, make an appointment with your GP or nutritionist to get on a program of healthy eating and upping your vitamin intake.

5.  Be Realistic

Things will go wrong. Allow yourself to be nervous. Everyone tells us we should be so happy during this time and everything will be perfect. NOT TRUE. That is not reality. It’s normal, healthy even, to question this lifetime commitment, to have problems with family members and be nervous and concerned overall and just because you’re concerned doesn’t mean you don’t want to get married. Talk to someone you trust and cut yourself some slack.

6. Continue To Date Your Fiance

Not because you are now getting married means that all the work or things you did to get to this point should end. Under the pressure and stress of planning a wedding, it’s easy to lose touch with the person you love most — your groom-to-be. Schedule date nights, be it a dinner out or a movie in, to squeeze in some quality alone time. You will need to.

    add sleep to the mix, some persons get so excited at times, and always on the go that they end up losing sleep

    Did a google search and saw that you should have a NO WEDDING day! A day that no discussion etc would take place.
