Try to allow yourself to have some self-care moments weekly and unwind from it all. If you feel like it, pause several days – sometimes the best ideas come when you look at things with a fresh perspective.

From the start, you know that this sounds like you! People generally have a talent to criticize themselves and worry so hard about the special day that usually leads to a meltdown.

But, let’s make a reality check: Who loves you no matter what? Who loves you just the way you are? Who thinks you are the most beautiful person in the world? Have you seen a wedding couple that doesn’t look just splendid and radiant on their wedding day? We thought so!
