It’s the night or two before your wedding and the at the worst time, the most random and stressful thoughts are going through your head. “Will my wedding be perfect?” “Will there be any complications during the day?” The list goes on and on about what brides fear most on their wedding day, but one thing is certain – you must relax. Here are 5 ways that will help relax your mind and body before your wedding.
Having a Cup of Tea Before Bed
Specifically the night before your wedding Having a cup of chamomile tea before your big day has shown to relax the individual and to promote better sleep. Also, it is a better alternative than having a glass of wine. Alcohol has a tendency to dehydrate your body and create oily skin, which no bride wants before her wedding. So, take a hot shower, get into your comfiest robe, brew some tea and curl up on the couch and relax.
Get a Good Nights Sleep
Sleeping 7-8 hours before your big day helps guarantee that you will have the energy for your wedding. Research shows that sleep loss could result in a higher chance of “irritability, impatience, inability to concentrate, and moodiness”; basically all things you don’t want to be on your wedding day. Having a full night’s sleep helps ensure that you will have the energy to get through your big day and enjoy all the festivities of your wedding.
Set a Back Up Alarm
This is such a common fear for most brides. It’s the day of their wedding, they wake up and noticed that they have over slept. Don’t let not waking up on time be your biggest fear. Set a back up alarm for your alarm just in case. Most Brides tend to have their bridesmaids act as a personal wake up back up call, not just to make sure the bride is awake; but there’s nothing like having your closest friends/family waking you up on your big day.
Have a Spa Day

Being able to get manicures, pedicures and even a special bridal sweedish massage will defiantly help ease yourself into your wedding day. Since this is something that takes some planning a week or two in advance, it is recommended that you set up an appointment for your spa day. Its recommended that the spa day should be the day before your wedding, so that the relaxing benefits of your hot stone massage will stay with you the whole day.
Relax with your Bridesmaids

Most brides enjoy having a relaxing girls movie night in, eating popcorn and just talking to help them relax. Other brides like playing fun games with their bridesmaids to keep their mind of the wedding. Either way, spending a night in with your closest friends will easily keep your mind off the wedding
