5 Ways to De-Stress When Planning a Wedding

Your wedding day should be the best day of your life. However, the time leading up to it can be incredibly stressful. To help you cope well with all the planning and preparation, here are five ways to de-stress.

Go On a Date

No, not with some random from Tinder! Go out on a fun date with your intended and recapture those early months of your relationship. It can be difficult to do anything but talk about and plan the day in the run-up to your nuptials so take some time out to rediscover why you are getting married. Go out for dinner in your favourite restaurant, recreate your first date, or try a new hobby. Whatever you choose to do, the only rule is that you can’t talk about your wedding on the date. This will give you time to reconnect and enjoy each other’s company without being preoccupied. 

Catch Up with Your Buddies

It can be difficult to spend time with your friends when you are busy but making time for them can help you to relax, unwind and stop stressing. Do the things you used to enjoy before you found your significant other such as treating yourself to a spa day, having a few beers, or going to see your favourite movie genre. This will give you time to catch up with other people who aren’t directly connected to your wedding and will want to talk about other things. 

Do Something Unrelated

When you are planning your big day, it may seem that everything comes back to the same thing; for example, trying a new restaurant so that you can consider it for your wedding breakfast or taking up dancing so that you will know some moves for your first dance. However, if you want to de-stress then it is a good idea to make yourself do something different. Whether you want to read a book, play a sport or play casino games via, spending some time away from wedding planning will help you to feel less stressed. 

Get Some Exercise

This is always a good way to de-stress as it releases endorphins into your brain that will make you feel less tense. Getting outdoors and connecting with nature can help you to relax and clear your mind. Walking or running are great ways to get outdoors and get some exercise. It will also help you to lose any pre-wedding weight and ensure that you look fabulous on your big day.

Get Enough Sleep

The middle of the night is not a great time to run through your seating plan or mentally add to your wedding checklist, but if you feel stressed, you may find yourself doing these things. This means that you will wake up feeling even more tired and stressed and then have to make it through another day. Try to get lots of early nights in the run-up to your big day and relax with a soothing bath or a good book to help you fall asleep and have a good night’s rest.

These five things will help you to feel relaxed and ready when your big day arrives, and you will be able to enjoy it even more.
