Planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful. It should be all about joy, love, harmony, and a new life together but the days leading up to it seem to be filled with nothing but frustration. Whether you’re the bride, a family member of the bride, or the maid-of-honor it seems like the pressure is on. You could use some relaxation! Below are some great ways to relax before the wedding and to simplify planning.
Cultivating patience can be key when planning a wedding. It can seem like there’s so much control you have to give up. You’re counting on people you’ve hired to come through and people you don’t even know are in control of things like catering, transportation services, altering clothing, and so much more. Of course enlisting the services of trusted businesses is a great way to put your mind at ease but still, in some cases accidents simply can’t be avoided. It’s important to have patience when you’re relinquishing your control and this is often easier said than done. A great way to control the stresses of putting so many important things into other people’s hands is to have a calm, reassuring support team. This is where family members and friends help to pick up any slack and offer reassuring support to the bride and groom. If you’re the maid of honor a great way to help the bride relax would be to plan a spa day! This will allow the bride to relax, revitalize, and renew their spirit. Maintaining a calm presence around a paranoid bride is no easy task so you need to take care of yourself as well and treat yourself to a spa day when needed!
Another great way to reduce stress when planning a wedding is by enlisting the amazing services of Edible Arrangements. Wedding day fruit baskets can be used as centerpieces, desserts, gifts, or wedding favors. They can even be used in tandem as a centerpiece and a dessert, killing two birds with one stone, and making your life a whole lot easier! They offer beautiful fruit arrangements dipped in chocolate and brimming with color, they’re sure to light up your tables. Edible Arrangements are also a great gift for a stressed out bride. If you’re looking to be the best maid of honor you can be, have one sent to the bride on the day of her wedding, or on a day when she’s particularly stressed. This will serve as a great reminder of your friendship and will help her to relax.
Of course the maid of honor can only do so much without getting stressed out herself. Remember to be kind to yourself and pace yourself. As the maid of honor, close friend, or helpful relative it’s your duty to stay calm in the eye of the storm. This of course means taking care of yourself, as mentioned earlier a spa day is a great way to do that. There are other ways of remaining calm when things get stressful like implementing breathing exercises, visualizing the perfect day, working to fix the thing you can change, and working to accept the things you can not. These are all great tenets for a calm, relaxed, and helpful support system.
Be sure to keep things low stress when you help your best friend plan the perfect wedding. Take a spa day when needed, learn some helpful breathing exercises, and take advantage of the amazing services Edible Arrangements has to offer.
