The Bride: Everything to Avoid the Week before the Wedding

Large

All the attention and the spotlight that you’re being exposed to might be getting to you. You’re probably anxious thinking about all that’s yet to be done and the closer you get to the wedding, the more nervous you become. But as the bride, have you thought about all the other things that you shouldn’t expose yourself to? Probably not.

Let us help you get rid of all that tension in your body:

1- A new workout routine:

We won’t even tell you to work out less, just don’t suddenly take up a new routine a week before your wedding. Changing your workout should come at least 45 days before the wedding. You do not want to spend your wedding day suffering from an injury that could have easily been avoided.

2- A new haircare routine:

So not to regret anything, do not attempt to cut, color, or make major changes to your hair out of the blue and so shortly before your wedding. Whatever changes you want to make to your hair, make them 6 months before the wedding in order to have the time to fix anything that you don’t come out feeling thrilled about. This includes changing your own haircare routine. 

3- New skincare products:

It’s better not to try new skincare products before the wedding without referring to your dermo first because the sudden changes may somehow backfire. Chemical peels are also better scheduled earlier than one week before the wedding.

4- Sunbathing:

If you’re going to spend hours bathing under the sun to get that bronze glow, USE PROTECTION. Do not even think about ditching sunscreen and putting yourself at risk of getting sunburnt and dealing with peeling, flaky skin.

5- Skipping meals:

Food is our body’s fuel that keeps us going, so do not forget to always eat your meals no matter how stressed out or full you feel, especially with all the effort you’ve been doing lately. Always keep a healthy snack on you so not to let yourself reach the state of being “Hangry”, you know when you’re both hungry and angry at the same time.

6- Insomnia:

Stress can keep you up at night, now imagine the stress that a bride is under. All these racing thoughts can lead to insomnia; an inability to fall asleep. There are many ways to try to fight insomnia and not give in to it. You need your 8 hours of sleep, not only to stay healthy but also to avoid the physical harms that come with sleep deprivation, like developing black under-eye circles, hair fall, and constant fatigue.

7- Too much caffeine:

The right amount of caffeine can actually help you in so many ways, but counting on caffeine, that’s a problem. Consuming too much caffeine will wreck your nerves and heighten your anxiety, not only that but it might actually physically affect you.

8- Conflict:

Do not wait the week before the wedding to bring up issues that you could’ve/should’ve discussed weeks or months before. Bad timing can lead to unnecessary fights. Any serious subjects that might bring about arguments should be dealt with way before tying the knot, like after getting engaged. We’re talking things like managing your jobs, finances, schedules…all of that.

9- Doing everything yourself:

If you’re a control freak who likes to handle everything herself, then it’s time to do away with the old habit and delegate some of the work to someone you trust so you can focus on yourself instead. Let a parent, sibling, or best friend manage the scene for a little while. They can always reach out to you if something goes wrong.

10- Picking ALL the battles:

We know, we know. But not everything will go exactly as planned and not every single detail will be taken care of the way you would’ve wanted it to, like the color of the bouquet being switched with another color. Things like that are so puny, they shouldn’t even bother you. Save yourself the anger and anxiety that come with not picking your battles.
