How does someone relax when they are really stressed about the wedding.

    A glass of vine surely helps Smiley tongue try to think of something else than the wedding or watch a movie or just go for a walk Smiley smile

    A nice walk, read a book, got get a massage. Just give yourself permission to not think about the wedding.

    Limit all wedding stuff. Cut yourself off from Pinterest and your planning resources. If you have a personal project that has nothing to do with the wedding, work on that. Or read a book or play a video game or bake muffins or go to a friend's house.

    A few “date nights” with my hubby helped, even if just a walk around the block and dinner/movie at home with NO wedding talk.

    I was doing daily daily exercise to get in shape but it also helped with wedding stress. And a facial the month before.

    Take breaks! I'm not stressed about it now, but a few weeks ago, my stress levels were crazy. What worked for me was spending time with FH, working out, reading, and the occasional glass of wine. Smiley winking

    Wine, venting to someone who understands the nature of what you are going through, do a mani/pedi day, do a “safe” facial mask nothing too crazy if you have sensitive skin. All these activities will help you unwind a bit, good luck.

    My sister took me to get a facial. A few weeks before our wedding. It was a huge help. Give yourself some time to be pampered. Face masks, manicure, wine, foot bath...whatever it is. Just pamper yourself and get out of the wedding headspace for a couple hours.
    Good luck, I know it's hard. I found that the closer we got the less stressed I actually got. The week of, I was the calm I'd been the whole time.

    Personally, I will remind myself that it doesnt matter as long as I get to marry my FH. Usually it works best if I'm looking into his eyes as I'm reminding myself. I can just get lost in him and that has been the biggest stress relief for me.

    I usually have a glass of wine or do something nice for myself. If that doesn't work, I take a break. Sometimes I go days without any wedding planning Smiley smile

    Taking a break helps. I didn’t stress much on the planning because I was organized but guest always stress you beyond control so taking a break helps! Some wine, a night out and maybe even a massage or nail and pedi time any you time helps.

    I would first question/pinpoint exactly what is stressing you about the wedding and focus on reducing THAT. Then walking, meditating, exercising, getting a massage, etc. can be secondary. Otherwise, the main stressor will still fully exist if it’s not addressed.

    This might only MY belief..... but wedding planning is only as hard/stressful as you make it. So often I see self-inflicted wedding stress.

    I usually take a day away from planning. I am always looking up something, contacting someone, going over plans, decor, etc, on a daily basis. When I get stressed, I take a day away from it and talk to my FH about it and then he helps and I feel better.

    Vent & have a glass of wine, do something that takes your mind off of it.

    I take a day or two off from planning, I discuss thing with my fiance' and he usually helps put thing at ease or fixes the issue himself.

    When I'm stressed, I go to the movies or I watch a movie at home that I haven't seen. Good watch to direct your attention on something, anything else.

    Or hey, you could binge watch Netflix!
