The song that will be playing as you pace dreamily down the aisle is playing like a broken record over and over again in your head. The only time you need to hear this song is at the wedding. How to tune it out at such a stressful and crucial time? Pace yourself – -and get FOCUSED! You don’t want to miss doing these last few significant things as the big day approaches…
Tail Spin or To Do?
Before you get caught in the tail spin of stress, try and catch yourself to stop and see what exactly it is that is stressing you out. One way of doing this (and probably the BEST way) is to make a list. Make friends with your notepad and use some sticky post-its as your new guidance. This helps you keep track of appointment timings and the zillion other things you have to do. In order to organize all of this, the timeline with tips offered below helps to let you know when you need to be making the last call for things to get done and crossing them off.
(Notice how you feel when you cross things off your list…it feeds that good type of stress hormone that your body pumps to keep you motivated in getting something accomplished. You feel empowered and productive with the swift cross of ink flooding over a “to do” that is equivalent to the sound of a sigh of relief.)

YOUR LAST MINUTE LIST…before true love’s tick of the clock tower strikes at the time of the ceremony!
ONE MONTH BEFORE: You’ll want to confirm the appointment with hair stylists, make up artists, and whoever else would be part of the glamour team to transform you into a bride beaming with beauty on your special day! Book a facial and other date/time set-ups for skin maintenance (you don’t want to go on a date that is too close to the wedding day). Also, make sure to go for a trial run to test out different styles you were thinking about to see what makes just the right fit for you…and on you. Stick to a fitness regimen. Have a separate calendar for all dates/times to set aside for your personalized work-out agenda, including exercise classes. Exercising shouldn’t just primarily be to focus on your weight. Exercise is about energy…endorphins…feeling good. You want to feel your very best during this time in your life. And look it, as well!
