Wedding Day Stress? 6 Ways to Relax Before Your Wedding

You’ve made it this far. You have navigated dress selections, wedding ring shopping and location woes… But your wedding day can be one of the most stressful days of your life. Of course, it’s a day filled with love and happiness, but the road there can be a bit, well, trying on your nerves. Here are a few tips to help you relax before the big day.

Wedding Day Stress? 6 Ways to Relax Before Your Wedding

  1. Get a Massage. Massage is the perfect way to relieve all of your built up tension. Switch it up a little and try a new massage technique that you haven’t tried before, but don’t forget to drink plenty of water beforehand; toxins are released when are you being massaged and water helps flush them out of your system.
  2. Take a Yoga Class. If it’s your first time doing yoga, start with a beginner’s class. You’ll be doing a lot of breathing exercises, relaxation techniques and postures that will keep you totally calm cand cool by the time it’s time to say “I do.”
  3. Soak in the Tub. A nice, hot bath will relax your muscles and put you in a peaceful mindset. Light a scented candle and throw on a mix of slow jams and you’ll find your escape in no time.
  4. Read a Book. What better way to take your mind off of stress than to read a good book? You’ll be so caught up in the story line of a page-turner that the never ending list of wedding to=dos will take the back seat for at least a little while.
  5. Hit the Spa. Treat yourself to a day package at the spa, some even offer a bridal package, and indulge in relaxation for a day.  Be careful when it comes to facials, though. If you haven’t had one before, you should get it done months before your wedding in case your skin doesn’t react well.
  6. Start a Journal. Your mind is racing with ideas, plans and dreams – write them down so you don’t forget a thing! Putting your thoughts down on paper is a great way to get things off of your chest and relieve your stress.
