Wedding Planning: Tips for Staying Healthy for the Big Day

The months, then the weeks, then the mere days leading up to your wedding can be a blur of activity and stress. Since you have a million and one things on your to-do list to take care of before the big day, it’s a pretty safe bet that you’re probably not taking care of yourself the way that you should.

While the vows do say in sickness and in health, you don’t want to be sick when you’re walking down the aisle on your wedding day. Keeping that in mind, this blog will give you a few tips for staying healthy amid the hustle and bustle of getting ready for your wedding day.

Add Sleep to Your Schedule

As your wedding day draws near, it might be tempting to stay up all night preparing or even skimping on sleep to get things done, this isn’t the right way to be chipper and glowing on your wedding day. You need a full seven to eight hours of sleep a night, not just for giving you the energy to plan the next day but to help you look your best while doing it.

Schedule Things Early

Whether it’s a dress fitting or engagement photos with your soon-to-be groom and your bridal party, it’s essential to have a cutoff on your day. It’s best to schedule things as early as possible, so you have the nighttime to unwind with the man you love and intend to spend the rest of your life with. While you’re out running back and forth to all these appointments, don’t forget to put on your diabetic socks on to increase your comfort when walking and decrease the swelling from being on your feet all day long.

Feed Yourself (And Your Groom)

It’s super-easy just to grab a burger or throw a frozen pizza in the oven when you’re planning a wedding. After all, who has time to cook? Feeding yourself and your groom should be one of your top priorities because, without healthy food, both of you are going to run out of energy quickly and have low immune systems to boot. On top of that, cooking for the two of you gives you some much-needed time alone and isn’t that what your wedding is all about, the two of you?

Don’t Let Stress Get You Down

Plain and simple, being under too much stress can make you sick. Planning a wedding is stressful, but if you take the time to relax, it doesn’t have to be. No matter how busy you are, it’s important to take the time to go to that yoga class, take a long walk, or just curl up on the couch with the man you love for some relaxation time.

Planning a wedding can be an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming and stressful. Follow the tips above to help you walk down the aisle as healthy and happy as you can be on your big day.
