With the endless this and that’s of planning a wedding, the brides minds can go a little topsy-turvy with stress. From the DJ, to the florist, to the venue, to the linens, to the caterer, to the dress, to the bridesmaids, to the cake, to the ceremony, to the invitations, and so it goes on and on. Talk about a to-do list, right?
Well brides, before anything else, what you need to scoot right up to the top of your list are your own, personal well-being. Your stress level should not get so high that you become an example of a Reader’s Digest article, with break-outs, early wrinkles, and on and off cold symptoms. Let’s face it, stress can be the cause of instability, mentally or physically, and you don’t need to be a doctor to figure that one out.
Here is what I recommend. Now is the perfect time. Halloween is right around the corner. Pumpkin patches, apple orchards, and corn mazes are open and in season. Now is the time for apple cider, pumpkin pie, and Halloween candy. The smell of fall leaves and winter frost is in the crisp air, and now is the last chance to get out and have some fun before winter freezes over.
The point? I guess I should make one right about now. Make sure you take the time to play. All work and no play makes Jill a dull bride. I encourage you to take the time to have a stress reliever. Take your fiancé, or maybe just all the girls, and go for a hay ride or a run through a haunted house. Never forget to jot down time for yourself on that to do list. Keep calm and plan your wedding right.
