How to Stay Calm and Relax the Night before your Wedding

Why are we talking about this? How can a bride-to-be stay calm on the night before her wedding? There’s a bridal party at which she needs to rock, have fun with her bridesmaids at the fullest, and spend some memorable time with her family.

So, where is the place for calmness and relaxation the night before?

This is the point. In the excitement of your bridal party, you might forget that you have a big day to come and you need to relax and de-stress every thought to get prepared for the next day.

The more time you spend on the night before your bridal party, the less sleep you reserve for yourself, and this is probably not a good start for your big celebration day.

In this article, we will learn what are the possible ways that can help you relax the night before your wedding.

Get some good quality zzz early the night before

To be honest, you won’t get a good night’s sleep on the bridal party night. Instead, you will see your mind racing with thoughts like wedding décor, the flowers, how you’re gonna look, guests list and so on.

Besides this, your bridesmaids will be forcing you to take one more cocktail each time you try to return to your bedroom. So, how you’re going to deal with next morning schedules if you won’t sleep well? That is the question and you need to be serious about this.

Do you want to wake up overly-tired, over-stressed, or sick on your wedding day? You won’t. So, keep all those mind racing thoughts at a bay and try to sleep tight on the last night. Also, try to wrap up the last night party as soon as possible so that you get nice 7-8 hours’ beauty sleep.

Practice yoga & meditation to sleep well

If you find difficulty in sleeping even in a quiet dark room, go for some yoga moves. There are some poses in Yoga that are specifically invented for sleeplessness. Try the following sleep inducing yoga poses and positions:

  • Easy forward Bend which is a variation of Sukhasana
  • Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana)
  • Child Pose(Balasana)
  • Plow Pose(Halasana)
  • Legs up the Wall Pose( Viparita Karani)
  • Corpse Pose(Savasana)
  • Seated Spinal Twist (Ardha Matsyendrasana)

Choose the pose that suits you and believe us, this can really help you to nod off.

No last-minute cross-checking the night before

You might have started the wedding planning, months before your Big day, right? So, make sure you are done with all the confirmations, times and plan, two days prior to the wedding. This will help you relax and enjoy the last night party, and you will be able to sleep well for the D-day. 

It seems easy but it’s not. You will see yourself joggling with several thoughts, no matter how hard you are trying to keep calm. So, what’s the solution?

This all can be avoided if you plan your wedding in advance. This means, days before your wedding, come up with a plan that let you wrap up all the tasks, at least 2-3 days before. Doing so, you can relax and enjoy with your friends and family without feeling stressed and rushed.

Express how you feel

Every bride goes through this phase and you are not alone. So, don’t hide your feelings and let your loved ones know your feeling for the big day. It’s not like they can’t guess your anxiousness but sometimes, it diffuses in the excitement of the bridal party.  So, don’t hesitate to express how you feel and what is bothering you. You will get some great suggestions and support from everyone.

Ask your recently married friends to share their bridal stories, know how did they manage to cope-up with last night stress and more. You will feel better, for sure.

The Takeaway

If you want to enjoy your wedding day, it is important that you wake up with a fresh mind. And, this is possible only, if you had a good sleep the night before your wedding. Enjoy each moment as much as you can, but sometimes, it’s good to take a step back and simply observe others enjoying and adding precious memories to your wedding dairies.
