What if the bridesmaid dress is not matching? What if the DJ fails to play the song right on time? Keeping your mind calm is the key to rock your wedding. Practice mindful meditation techniques, like visualization, to deal with wedding stress and anxiety. Deep breathing exercises help you release unwanted thoughts and regain your confidence.

Drink up, you beautiful but dehydrated bride! And by ‘drink up,’ I don’t mean wine, but our good old H2O. Experts suggest drinking 2L of water every day to keep the skin glow flawless. Add some lemon and mint to have a fresh taste.
