Pre-wedding jitters can send the most level-headed bride on an emotional whirlwind. A serious case of the butterflies can make getting to the altar feel more like running a marathon. However, with a little preparation you’ll be able to stay on schedule and have a peaceful morning before your wedding. Follow these simple steps to help make the morning of your Special Day enjoyable and stress-free!
Get your beauty rest
Start your morning off right by taking it easy the night before your wedding. Implement a two drink maximum and err on the side of caution when it comes to trying new foods. Save yourself from having to deal with a nagging hangover or food poisoning. Treat yourself to a bubble bath at the end of the night and then hit the sack early. You have a big day ahead of you!
Create an action plan
You won’t have a successful morning if you don’t plan for it! Set a schedule, get it on paper and make sure everyone has it on hand. Whether it be brunch or hair and makeup, clearly outline what needs to get done and when.
Practice meditation or yoga
Rise early for a 30-minute yoga session. This will help you clear your mind and focus on the present moment. Your bridesmaids will probably feel antsy as well so invite them to join in. If you can’t imagine squeezing a yoga session into your jam packed schedule, try a quick round of meditation. Make an effort to sit quietly and simply breathe for 10 minutes. Your mind and body will thank you!
It isn’t everyday that you get to say “I do” to Mr. or Mrs. Right, so revel in the special moments leading up to your wedding. Remember, amidst all of the chaos your dream guy will be waiting at the end of the aisle!
