Self Care Tasks Should Not Take Backseat to Wedding Planning

Wedding planning doesn’t just take time – sometimes it can feel overwhelming. As your big day approaches, you may feel stressed, overwhelmed and a little (or a lot) too skinny.

Self-care is an extremely important part of wedding and life planning that many often let slip through the cracks. Here are some self-care tasks that should not be leaved when planning a wedding, no matter how overwhelmed you feel.


Many brides follow crazy (and peril) crash diets and miss important nutrition brands. Others barely have time to eat fast food, let alone prepare and cook healthy meals. Nutrition is important for your well-being and provides the energy you need to cross that finish line (on your wedding day). Consider consulting a nutritionist or making sure that you stick to the targeted food group and portion sizes in a balanced diet, regardless of what life and marriage planning is bothering you. Try meal prep or a convenient, healthy meal delivery service to help you stay on track.


What could be worse than being sick? Sick on your wedding day. When we are at full throttle, our immune system is often tense and tired, which makes us vulnerable to germs and viruses. If you have a cold or excruciating cough that lasts more than a few days, take the time to go to the doctor. Although it is only allergies or colds, a weakened immune system can often lead to flu, bronchitis, upper respiratory tract infections, etc. Pay attention to all health problems from the very beginning to ensure a healthy wedding day and beyond.

Mental health

Mental health and health are the same things, but it’s so important that it deserves its own category. Stress and exhaustion (among other things) can cause existing anxiety and decline problems or create new feelings and sensations that you may be facing. Whatever you are feeling beyond a “bad day” should never be ignored, as there are countless resources that can help you navigate in times of need or difficulties such as therapy, counseling, life coaching and even meditation apps.


I’m not talking about the “sweating for the wedding” type of exercise, but about quiet walks that relieve stress, restorative Yoga classes and other gentle but necessary movements that your body needs and needs during periods of high tension. Exercise in any form is an incredibly important component of self-care for the health of the heart and head. No matter how tight your schedule will be, plan a few after-dinner walks with your lover, classes with your daughters or bike rides around town to stay on the ground and release wellness Morphines.


Whatever your favorite way to relax and decompress is (good morning, hot bath and Netflix), do it and do it often. If that means crossing an item off that to-do list tomorrow, make peace with it so you can make peace with yourself first. Light a candle, take a nap, meditate, watch a cheesy movie or treat yourself to shopping therapy. Whatever brings you joy and relaxation, accept it and make it a top priority.
