Let’s face it: as romantic and dreamy as weddings are, they are also one of the most stressful events that you’ll ever have to plan in your entire life. There’s just so much to do- from the seating arrangements to the invitations, the altar decorations or even the wedding favors, guest list, buffet and so much more, the bride and groom are often faced with an overwhelming amount of items to tick off their checklist.
This is why it’s so important to adopt a few habits which will help you relax in the weeks that follow your wedding. After all if you’re tired, grouchy and overstressed, you won’t be able to enjoy your wedding day, which defeats the purpose of all the incessant planning. So, here are the top rules that you should follow to have a romantic and stress free wedding.
Massages and Spas
Nothing will help you unwind like a lengthy, deep-tissue massage. For best results, it’s recommended to get a massage at least three times a week, for two weeks prior to the wedding. This will not only soothe your senses and help you relax, but regular spa trips will also revitalize your senses and help you face all the planning.
Other than massages, consider frequent Jacuzzi dips, hot stone therapy or even acupuncture and acupressure. To strengthen the bond between you and your would-be husband, don’t hesitate to book special pre-wedding spa packages that offer couples massages and the likes.
Seek professional help
You don’t have to drown the midst of incessant wedding planning. If you feel that things are starting to get overwhelming, don’t hesitate to solicit the services of a wedding planner. An experienced professional will be able to handle things with a much cooler and collected mind. In fact, planning a wedding is basically routine work for them since they’ve done it so many times before!
Makeup artist and hairdresser
The one big mistake that most brides seem to make is believe that they’ll be able to easily do their own makeup and hair on their wedding day. Yes, you may be an expert at applying makeup, but, remember that your fingers will most likely be shaking with nerves on the special day. Your mind will be all over the place and the last thing that you’ll feel like doing is try to wrestle the tangles in your hair.
So, don’t hesitate to contact an experienced makeup artist and hairdresser to help you look even better on your wedding day. Remember that there’ll be very little time for touch-ups and the last thing you want is for your makeup to melt while you’re reciting your vows. You want the good stuff- which is why it’s crucial to hire a makeup artist who will be able to provide you with some of the best products on the market.
