Being engaged is one of the most exciting phases of life as couples prepare to spend the rest of their lives together. For some people, however, the process of planning a wedding can add copious amounts of stress to what should be an enjoyable engagement season. As you plan your wedding, you and your fiancé should prioritize your wellness and self-care in order to manage any pre-wedding stress. 

From taking care of your physical well-being to looking after your mental health, there are several tips for engaged couples who are deep in the throes of wedding planning. When you choose Windows on the Water as your wedding venue, we understand that wedding planning can easily become overwhelming. Our service is unmatched, and we want you and your partner to have a stress-free planning process and a flawless wedding day.

Take Care of Your Body to Manage Pre-Wedding Stress

Although some couples take diet and exercise to the extreme to reach their wedding body goals, simply taking care of your body during your engagement is crucial for managing stress. As you and your fiancé get closer to your big day, you should make sure you both are doing the following things:

  • Getting enough sleep
  • Drinking plenty of water
  • Eating healthy food
  • Exercising regularly

The wedding planning process can become overly stressful if you are dehydrated, not well-rested, and running on fast food. By prioritizing physical health, couples never show up to the wedding planning table running on empty.

Also, whether you and your partner choose to do yoga, walk, hike, or run a 5K, any kind of regular body movement will help you manage your stress. You need an activity that you can do either alone or as a couple that will take your mind off any stressful elements of planning your wedding.

Set Regular Date Nights With Each Other Throughout Your Engagement

During your engagement, you and your fiancé should continue to date each other. If your schedules allow it, you should set a standing date night every week. It is important for you and your partner to stay connected and make time for your relationship. Some easy date ideas include trying out a new restaurant, watching a movie, having a picnic, visiting a museum, or even painting pottery for your future home.

Additionally, you should avoid discussing the wedding details on your dates. Give yourselves time to enjoy each other’s company and not be stressed about wedding planning. Having a date night allows you and your fiancé to reconnect with each other and let go of any stress stemming from the upcoming wedding.

Practice Time Management and Set Daily Limits on Wedding Planning Discussions

If you find that wedding planning is taking over your life, you need to practice time management for the sake of your mental health. For example, you should set a daily limit on your wedding planning discussions. You and your fiancé can agree to discuss wedding planning for only one to two hours per day to avoid being overwhelmed. This time limit may seem insignificant, but it will improve your mental health tremendously.

You want to give your mind a break from the planning and the problem solving, or you may experience burnout before the big day even arrives. Prioritizing your mental health is just as important as prioritizing your physical health during your engagement.
