The month leading up to your wedding can often be overwhelming with a multitude of tasks and decisions. Amidst the chaos, it’s crucial to prioritize your well-being and establish healthy habits that will help you feel your best on your special day. From nourishing your body to taking care of your mental and emotional health, this article will guide you through a range of essential practices that will set the stage for a memorable and blissful wedding experience.

Stay grounded.

“Get organized right at that 30-day mark so that you can spend the remainder of the month before your wedding doing *only* stress-free activities. Gather and review all of your vendor contracts, build a master contact list, make final payments per all contract terms, create a “day-of” binder with printed final contract copies, and remember to ask for help if needed! Our extra wellness tip in staying grounded: start a 30-day gratitude list, and aim to add 10 things per day.” – Kristin Sullivan, Founder, The Bridal Retreat

Don’t skimp on your H2O.

“Staying hydrated boosts elasticity and combats oily skin. In order to get that soft dewy bridal glow, your skin must be hydrated! A good habit to start would be to drink at least 64 ounces of water a day and incorporate water-rich foods to your diet.” Beauty guru’s recommendation: ProBttl 32 Oz Borosilicate Glass Water Bottle With Time Marker – Britnye Shore, Founder, The Bardot

Prioritize those zzzzz’s in style.

“Getting adequate sleep has been proven to increase collagen in your skin. Do you know how to get an extra bonus? Try sleeping with a silk pillowcase! Sleeping on a silk pillowcase can decrease any inflammation in the skin while also helping the skin retain hydration. Plan for at least 8 hours of sleep a night in preparation for your wedding day!” Beauty guru’s recommendation: Slip Pillow Cases (Pink Queen color of course!) – Britnye Shore, Founder, The Bardot

Meditate your way to glowing skin.

We all know how stressful wedding planning can be! Set aside at least 10 minutes upon waking to listen to a guided meditation. Studies prove that just 10 minutes a day can help tremendously with anxiety and over time can lead to improved complexions, reduced wrinkles and a slower aging process from the inside out.” Beauty guru’s recommendation: Headspace App – Britnye Shore, Founder, The Bardot

Bye-bye under eye bags.

Keeping a month’s supply of collagen boosted under eye pads in your refrigerator is a game changer! One month before the big day, wear these every morning for 30 minutes while you get ready. The monthly supply of collagen will keep those under eye bags at bay, not to mention, they feel amazing!” Beauty guru’s recommendation: Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches – Britnye Shore, Founder, The Bardot

Flood your skin with a moisture surge.

Your skin is your largest organ so please, take care of it! For that full body glow, keep your skin as moisturized as possible. My go-to is coconut oil as it is so healing and hydrating, plus there are so many other benefits that coconut oil provides. If you are allergic to coconut, cocoa butter is a good second! Other ways to boost your skin’s moisture is to skip the long, hot showers, use a facial spray for midday moisture and lastly, invest in a humidifier.” Beauty guru’s recommendation: Conscious Coconut Oil, Mario Badescu Facial Spray and Canopy humidifiers – Britnye Shore, Founder, The Bardot
