Relaxing before your wedding
The day before your wedding and the day of your wedding should not be stressful days. Hopefully you have planned and prepared, hired a professional to deal with details, and you are surrounded by very helpful friends. Here are some recommendations for the day before your wedding.
Get a massage
Best way to rejuvenate from the last few months of planning is a massage. Indulge yourself in a luxurious, soothing massage. Get rid of muscle tension and strain. Make an appointment with a spa near by or rent a hotel room and have a Massage Therapist come to you. If you have not done a something with your bridesmaids, this would be a great opportunity to spend some time with them. If you are in the Colorado area, consider booking the services of Massage Therapist, Debbie Andersen. As the owner of The Knead 2 Relax, she offers rejuvenating massages that soothe body, mind and soul. For a Massage Therapist near you, click here.

Rent a hotel room
Rent a hotel room for yourself. Use the time to meditate, listen to music or read a good book.
Go to a museum
I love the museum so I had to get this in. Loose yourself in the paintings and sculptures and take your mind off of your pending nuptials...if even for a moment.
Take a bubble bath
Surrounded by aromatherapy candles and soothing music, let your cares float away.
Get some rest
Sounds simple, however many brides pull all-nighters the days before the wedding and are almost at the point of crashing on the day of their wedding. If you are planning a bachelorette party or girls night out, plan them a couple of days before your wedding. Staying up late, having a hangover can definitely add stress to your wedding day. Make sure to let your friends know that you would prefer to have to celebrate a couple of days prior to your wedding, so that they are aware of your wishes. Have your wedding planner take care of any last minute things like programs or favors so that you could relax. As a wedding planner I know that I want my bride to be at her best on her wedding day, and if that means staying up late so that she does not have to then I will.
