Growing up, planning your wedding seems like the chance to make your fairy-tale dreams come true. But every bride-to-be knows that making it all come to life is anything but easy. The countdown to your walk down the aisle is super exciting, but if we’re being honest, it’s also exhausting. To help keep the wedding planning stress away and make it feel like a breeze, here are some tips to prioritize your self-care.
Take it one step at a time
The moments after you say “yes” can feel like a whirlwind. Suddenly you’re looking for the perfect venue, picking your bridesmaids, and choosing your wedding dress all at the same time. But there’s no need to rush! Slow down and take it one day at a time. Make a list and a timeline to make sure that there’s no last-minute stress before your big day.
Ask for help
Planning a wedding is anything but a one-woman show. If you’re struggling to keep up and are starting to feel a strain on your mental health, it’s time to call for backup ASAP. Reach out to your friends and family and ask if they could lend you a hand. They all want you to have an amazing day so don’t be afraid to ask for help!
Make time for self-care
Life is not all about planning the wedding. Schedule set times to work on the wedding and then walk away! Go for a jog, hang out with friends, or binge-watch Netflix. Do whatever it is that re-centers you so that you feel refreshed and ready to tackle whatever comes your way.
Sweat it out
Working on planning for the wedding and focusing your health and fitness goals can feel super overwhelming. So, what’s the solution? Find someone that can help with the journey! Working out with a personal trainer keeps you feeling accountable, motivated, and confident. Not to mention sweating it out is also known to improve your mood and reduce stress!
