Featured Bride, Kai K. | Wedding Location: St. Paul, MN | Wedding Date: April 2, 2011
The final days!When your countdown changes from weeks to mere days, it’s hard to stay focused. The advice I’ve always heard is to relax, but how hard is that when there are tons of last minute details to keep track of?
Pass the torch.In order to stress less, it is imperative for any bride to pass the torch. Whether it’s your mother or your MOH, both have signed on to help lessen the load and now is the time to take advantage of the offer. You should NOT, I repeat should NOT, spend the days up to your wedding worrying about details and accidentally taking out your anxiety on your groom. This time should be remembered as happy and exciting, not overwhelming!
Relax.If you find it hard to peel yourself away and delegate, purposely find something to take up that suddenly “free” time. Grab a great book or even a season of your favorite TV show, and let that be your stress-relieving activity (I’m guessing heading to the gym has already been taken). Make sure bridesmaids/family know what is expected of them, and try to be as carefree as you can. Besides the obvious psychological benefit, your body’s health and beauty will benefit as well.
Go on one last date before you become Mr. and Mrs.Use some of the free time to go on a final “single” date with your beau so you can spend some quality time together before it gets too close to the big day. Before you start your life together, it’s probably a good idea to make sure you are both on the same page! As for me, I’ll be walking down the aisle in seven days--but making sure the next six are as easy as possible.
