It’s tempting to run around planning until the last minute, but don’t forget to take a break before you walk down the aisle! Here are some easy, fun ways to relax before you say, “I do.”
Looking for ways to relax before your wedding day? We have five simple yet great ways to lower your stress level, enjoy some downtime, and clear your head before you walk down the aisle.
Work Off Some Stress
Even if you’re already on a good exercise plan, consider taking high-cardio classes or signing up for extra activities that can help you burn off that pre-wedding stress. It’ll help you feel great and look great, too.
Catch Up on Your To-Read Pile
If you’re an avid reader, the wedding planning process might interfere with your downtime to enjoy your favorite reads. Consider scheduling aside some time each night or each weekend to kick back and relax with your favorite books. While you’re at it, catch up on your to-read pile.
Hit the Beach
A little sun and fun never hurt anyone, and it can certainly do a bride-to-be some good! The beach is a great place to hang out for a few hours even in the colder months. Bring a blanket, dress warm, grab your iPod, and pack a nice lunch for a relaxing afternoon in the sand. This is especially a good way to snag some alone time before the big event.
If you have the funds, book a few spa treatments and pamper yourself a few days or a few weeks before the wedding. It’s also fun to take a friend along or get a group together. Either way, you’ll be sure to score some serious relaxation by yourself or with some friends.
Get Away for the Weekend
Another great way to relax and clear your mind is to abandon reality for a few days and hit the road. Take a quick weekend getaway to the shore, a nearby shopping district you like, or just hit the open road for some fresh air and good tunes and stop wherever you’d like. This is one of the best ways to relax before your wedding day!
