After months of wedding planning and rechecking on a whole lot of things, it’s now time for you to take a break from it all and focus on yourself. Stop the fuss, and start indulging in some self-care. It’s meant for both, the bride and the groom! After all, it’s the best day of your life and you should be looking nothing but your best, so think about it!
When it’s time to start shopping for the next wedding season, which is yours, it’s quite normal to get completely absorbed, even addicted to it, because you know this is your once in a lifetime shopping spree, and you’re never going to do it again. Nevertheless, if you want to look fabulous in those gorgeous bridal pieces you get from the best stores, you need to work on your inner looks, too!
Simple Self Care
Ditch the caffeine! It’s a great way to start! Switch to some of those amazing herbal teas and of course, water instead! Skip the pressure of sizing down for your wedding dress and start eating healthy. Staying hydrated and nourished is the key to look good and to relieve stress until your big day has arrived. This, make sure you do all the little right things amidst those crazy wedding prep marathons, so it all becomes worthwhile in the end.
The Beauty sleep is mandatory for a bride. Again, don’t let the nitty-gritties of the wedding get in the way and bother your much-needed rest and peace. Adopting a good sleeping routine will benefit you in many ways and is in fact, a lot more important at this point. It will help you stay energetic, stress-free, and start looking great naturally.
Hit the salons and spas and get enough of those pamper sessions. A manicure and pedicure not only give your nails some life but is also therapeutic. Take these moments to relax and enjoy all the nice feelings as you do. Think about doing this with your bunch of girls. Spend quality time indulging and talking about nice things, but not about the flower arrangements and décor!
Plan a weekend getaway or a few movie dates with your girls. It may sound ridiculous at this point, but you will be thankful you did! This will take away the anxiety that most brides and grooms to be tend to develop, sometimes quite strongly. Keep in mind, this isn’t a strategy to distract you from reality, but to help you come to terms with your life and your future.
Make Wedding Preps a Fun Thing
Many loved ones getting their friends and buddies completely involved in all their wedding preps. This is a good way of making wedding preps fun instead of a stressful and tedious thing. Let your gang accompany you at shopping and let them help you make choices if you’d like.
They’re likely to be your bridesmaids/best-men, and so having them onboard throughout your preps might be an awesome thing to do.
