As your wedding date looms, so does the culmination of months of hard work, organisation, blood sweat and tears. Whilst some experts recommend that you take time out every day to meditate, we know that most of you lead busy lives and haven’t got the time for that, so here are 4 practical things you can do to keep yourself calm before your wedding.

Taylor Swift isn’t the only woman allowed to have a squad, you can too. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the last minute jobs, then ask your friends to help out. Chances are, they will only be too glad to help, especially if they’re in the bridal party.
2. Arrange a date night with just you and your partner with no wedding chat.
The pressure of organising a wedding can lead to many an argument, so it’s important that you and your partner reconnect before the big day. You don’t even have to go anywhere, a takeaway and a night in front the telly will be fine, just as long as you agree to not talk about the wedding!

Enjoy it!
