Final countdown

Check 1,2,3: Final countdown

In the lead up to your big day, it can be easy to fall into the trap of ticking boxes. Venue? Check. Catering. Check. Music. Done! While it is wonderful to be organised, it can also be difficult falling into the trap of ‘must get everything done’, rather than enjoying the moment for what it really is - planning an amazing celebration of your love!

In the lead up to your big day, it can be easy to fall into the trap of ticking boxes. Venue? Check. Catering. Check. Music. Done!

While it is wonderful to be organised, it can also be difficult falling into the trap of ‘must get everything done’, rather than enjoying the moment for what it really is – planning an amazing celebration of your love!

Rather than looking back on this time as stressful and overwhelming, wouldn’t you rather look back on it with fondness and joy?

On top of this, for some brides the idea of having all eyes on them is almost too much to bare – especially if you have body image or self-love challenges. Remember, contrary to popular belief, now is NOT the time to put yourself on any strict diets or exercise overhauls – which can just lead to additional stress, burnout and fatigue in the lead up to your big day. Rather, take it slow and steady. Make LIFESTYLE changes, rather than drastic decisions.

Here are some simple tips to enjoy the lead up to your big day, and also work on your self-love, so that when it does come around you are feeling happy, confident and relaxed:

Find exercise you actually enjoy

Don’t like boot camp? Great, don’t do it. Now is the time to try a bunch of different training ideas and find one that you love. You don’t need to train 7 days a week to get your ‘bride-body’ in shape, and exercise should NEVER feel like a chore. Exercise because you enjoy it, and for all of the amazing additional health benefits – stress relief, glowing skin, and a healthy physique.

Start a gratitude practice

There really is no time like now to start practicing gratitude for the things you have today. Each day, write down three things you are grateful for – they can be specific to wedding planning, or more general life gratitude’s. Even better is if you get your fiancé involved! Gratitude helps you live in the moment, and alleviates stress, as you become more aware of all of the amazing things you already have in your life.

HERE are some ways to best manage your support crew and partner 

Schedule self-love time

Take time out just for YOU every single week. This is time for you to do exactly what you WANT, not what you think you SHOULD do. If that means not touching a single thing to do with wedding planning, so be it. Put aside a half day every week to just be in your own company – book in for a massage or facial, get a manicure or just read a book in bed. Whatever makes you feel calm, content and relaxed.

Reconnect with your partner

As the big day draws closer, it will be easy to have the wedding as front of mind. To avoid having ALL conversations with your fiancé revolving around the day, plan some surprise, special date nights, that have absolutely NOTHING to do with the wedding. Share with them all the things you love about them, and just enjoy being in each other’s company without the stresses of the big day.

Remember that this is just another chapter in your lifetime of love together – enjoy it for what it is, the planning and all!
