Coping With Wedding Stress, How to Relax and Be Happy During Your Wedding Planning
Picture from the Brides of March
Wedding planning is stressful. Wedding
planning can cause the most laid back couple
to flare up and combust. When the wedding
is causing you to stress out and lose sleep,
its time to take action!
Remember, the wedding is a big party.
Its a celebration of the marriage of two people.
Its not a competition to have the best wedding.
Its a party. It's just a really BIG party.
Take a wedding planning break. Take a couple
of days off to decompress, relax and rejuvenate.
Spend quality time alone with your fiance and
make a pact that you won't mention the wedding.
Take a long walk in the sunshine with your dog.
Jump on the treadmill when the weather is bad.
Sign up for an aerobics class.
Take a yoga class. Not only will you learn relaxation
techniques, you'll elongate your body
and increase flexibility.
Read a book or magazine.
Take a bubble bath with candles and play soft music
so you can relax.
Give yourself a facial and pedicure.
Schedule a massage. Or better yet, schedule a couples
massage at a local spa. He's part of the wedding planning,
too, and if you are stressed, well, you get the idea!
Plan shopping day with your best friend along with
lunch in a hot new bistro.
Sign up for a dance class.
Swim at the Y.
Put on a strip aerobics or belly dance DVD.
Great cardio workout, more fun than doing
Go to the local park and swing on the swings. Take along
your iPod for the walking path, have a picnic and just
spend the afternoon being carefree.
When the stress starts up again, repeat the above.
Make a pact with yourself to be happy and roll with
whatever life throws your way. This, too, shall pass.
