You're here because you just got engaged. You're excited, your family is excited, and we are excited for you. As this excitement wears off, you're now met with the responsibility of planning an event. Even with the help of a wedding planner, this can be stressful.



But as always we are here to ease the stress. We know you, you are the modern bride: elegant, passionate, and driven. We have no doubts you will put together an amazing event. We just want to make sure you are taking care of yourself. Selfcare isn’t selfish and should be a top priority. We put together the ultimate self-care routine for the modern bride. Incorporating one or two of these tips will have you feeling like your best self.




1. Daily Exercise


This can be anything from a stroll around your neighborhood to an intense cycling class. Daily movement will allow you to clear your mind and feel refreshed. Sweat it out!



2. Journal


We know you’ve heard this time and time again. But it wouldn’t be on our list if it didn’t work. Journaling isn’t limited to only writing about your feelings. Feel free to write down a list, goals, and affirmations.




3. Get Social


We understand how much of a task this can be when you have a million other things on your to-do list. But socializing is critical and will help you let loose. Have fun getting dressed up and going out with friends. Or, have a girl's night in with a charcuterie board and your favorite wine.


4. Get Pampered


One of our favorite ways to feel our best is to get pampered. This can be a massage, a mani-pedi, or a facial. Don’t be afraid to spend the time and money, you deserve it.



5. Cook Or Bake


Take the time to cook or bake a new recipe. Try using new ingredients or different techniques. We know you will feel accomplished after making a fancy dish. Not to mention this is also a great idea for a date night.



6. Clean


One of the best ways to destress is to declutter. Take the time to organize, sort through, and deep clean. When your space is in order so is your mind. We promise you will feel refreshed and ready for anything that comes your way.




We hope these simple tips will leave you feeling excited to plan your big day.
