In all my years of wedding experience, I’ve seen tons of extremely stressed out brides. Let’s take the case of one stressed out bride who we’ll call Monica, her husband Tom, and mother-in-law Marilyn. Marilyn had been dreaming of her son’s wedding for years, and she was delighted when Tom proposed to Monica.
And then came the wedding planning.
Marilyn wasn’t a monster-in-law, but her tendency to sometimes help just a little bit too much was getting under Monica’s skin. Monica was stressed out with wedding planning and her demanding job, and that stress was making her snap at Tom and Marilyn, her skin go hay-wire, and way too many tears for such a happy upcoming event.
The solution? We got Monica quickly into Wedding Retreat, stat! We took her for a hot stone massage, got her a pedicure (so relaxing! never underestimate the value of a good pedicure), facial, and a haircut. Sure, it wasn’t cheap, but after seeing Monica relax as much as she did, we would have done it 5 times over.
So, brides-to-be, what can you learn from this? Relax! Take a breath, and smile at all the loved ones around you who just want to help, and the beautiful life you have. And then schedule yourself a massage, and get these for your personal use, and as a great gift for your always helpful bridesmaids, too:
