Even the most calm and collected brides-to-be can experience a touch of insanity when their wedding day approaches. Between trying to stay in budget, organising a million different things and attempting to keep up with work and real life issues, it’s easy to slip into meltdown mode and transform into a bridezilla. Keep your head in check with these simple keep calm tips.

Become A Yogi

Yoga is a great way tone up your body and improve your fitness as your wedding approaches, but it’s also the perfect de-stressing, relaxing exercise. Try to go to a gentle, meditative yoga class once a week to breathe, stretch and focus in on your body.


As the bride, you don’t need to take responsibility for every little aspect of planning your wedding. Make sure there are certain tasks that, if you trust him enough, you can delegate to your fiancé, and that you have plenty of help from friends and family in getting things organised. If you have room in your budget, a wedding planner can be a great investment in your sanity.

Keep Couple Time

In all the excitement and anxiety around the wedding, it’s all too easy to forget why you’re getting married in the first place. Plan regular date nights and alone time with your fiancé to keep the romance alive, and make sure that you open up about the things that are playing on your mind. If you feel like it’s all too much, talk to you partner- that’s what they’re there for.

Take Care Of Yourself

Try to keep the focus on yourself and your own peace of mind throughout the planning process. Schedule quality time to be alone with yourself and do things that make you feel calm and happy- take a long bubble bath, book a massage, go for a quiet walk in the park. All of these small steps will help keep things in perspective and leave you relaxed and at ease when the big day arrives.
