Planning a wedding can be an extremely stressful experience. It’s important to have a toolkit of skills to manage your stress. Take a look at some of our favorite tips for de-stressing before your big day.
Create planning time
It’s important to set aside time to plan your big day. Whether that’s a couple of nights a week or a few small things everyday, make sure you have time set aside just for that so you don’t get overwhelmed.
Use Your Peripheral Vision
We know it sounds crazy! But, if you’re ever in a jam and totally freaking out, focus on a spot above your field of vision and let you eyes slowly drift from left to right. Apparently, when you use this part of your vision it’s impossible to experience negative emotions.
A Daily Stress Reducer
Pick something relaxing to do for yourself everyday. Make sure to take care of yourself during the stressful time. It’s important to have something small and relaxing you can incorporate into your day. Whether it’s yoga, meditation, reading or something else, take special time to keep calm.

Workout to Stay Healthy
There are so many recommend diets out there for future brides, but the reality of the situation is that crash diets are dangerous and unhealthy. Working out or being active should be something you do to stay healthy and happy. It can also help to control stress in these more intense times.
Stick to a Routine
Another helpful tip for managing stress by getting into a routine. Whether it’s in the morning or at night, sticking to a routine that can include anything from cooking breakfast, to giving yourself spa treatments, or even journaling. This gives you something constructive to focus on when you’re coordinating all of your wedding details.
