Planning a wedding can be a daunting task that sometimes overwhelms the bride – which is something that shouldn’t happen because the bride has to be the most beautiful girl in the room when the wedding day arrives. But really, all that organizing, finishing, adjusting and repairing, and worrying about noodlescrazy details can stress anyone out. Luckily, this can be prevented by taking time off to relax whenever things get too tough to handle.
Here are some relaxation tips that can save a stressed-out bride from completely melting away before the actual ceremony takes place.
1. Pamper yourself.
Head to your favorite spa, and enjoy a day of pampering fit for a queen. Revel in the feeling of being cared for as you spend the day getting your nails done, relaxing with your trusted masseuse, and just relaxing. Nothing beats stress like spoiling a good parent.
2. Run away with your fiancé.
Now this doesn’t mean that the two of you have to pack up and get married somewhere where it’s just the two of you together with lots of witnesses. Instead, take time off from your busy schedule to really just spend time together.
Update yourself on what you’ve been up to the last few weeks – communication is key. It’s time to reconnect and remember that amidst all the chaos of wedding planning, it’s all about the two of you in the end. Go to the countryside. Relax, chill, and enjoy each other’s company. You both deserve that much needed break!
3. Maintain spells.
Whatever your religion, keeping mantras can prove to be good for you inside and out. “I feel great”, “I am good, the world is good, everything is good” and “Today is going to be a fantastic day!” are just a few examples of one-liners that you can play over and over in your mind. Keep saying it in your head, and you’ll find that it will influence your outlook and result in a positive shift in mindset, thereby reducing stress.
4. Understand your stress.
Do you get stressed when something you so diligently planned doesn’t turn out the way you wanted? Or is the stress coming from the feeling of doing all the chores yourself? By understanding why you’re stressed, you’ll be able to address the root cause of the problem, and rid yourself of it, or avoid it to prevent future stressors from occurring as you move further into planning.
5. Delegate tasks.
While the personal touch adds that special factor, trying to do everything yourself can not only be overwhelming for anyone, it can also affect your relationship with your fiancé and those around you as your mood sours from all the workload.
If you’re not hiring a full-time wedding planner, become a delegator – and have faith that the people you delegate tasks to can get it done to the best of their ability. If you have a friend who has worked with florists in the past, why not ask her to help you by setting up an appointment with her?
If you are having trouble finding a wedding ring based on your specific needs, you can ask a close friend to contact a local entertainment agency such as Music For Scotland. These agencies offer wedding ring options based on your needs and save you the hassle of finding one manually.
Remember, a wedding takes two people to be married, but it takes a lot more to complete everything into the successful event you want.
Getting married can be the fulfillment of a girl’s dream, but the whole process of achieving it can be too much. By following the tips above, you’ll be sure to maintain that glow and shine for the big day and become the most beautiful bride the world has ever seen.
