It’s hard to believe, but I’m getting married in one week. One week! We’ve spent over a year engaged, thinking and talking about this day, and it’s finally here. The music, flowers, and colors have been decided, and my dress is hanging on my office door. It’s all, in a word, overwhelming.
If you haven’t planned a wedding, I’m not here to scare you. But I will say that for my personality (I run the content team here at mindbodygreen, and I have no shame in admitting that I’m Type-A), the pressure to be perfect weighs heavy. I want this to be the best wedding our guests have ever been to, and I want to look the best I possibly can. After all, it’s going to be a heavily photographed day with many eyeballs on me and my future husband (!!).
Through the frenzy of the last 14 months of prep, I’ve been relying on a few products and practices to help bring me back to earth and keep me in one piece. And boy, am I ready to share them with you. Whether you’re a bride-to-be, a wedding guest, or just wanting to feel your best, here’s what I’ve been leaning on for support during this hectic but exciting time.
