Too Stressed Out to Sleep? Try These Tips

If you feel like wedding stress is keeping you up at night, you’re probably right. Stress can have a significant effect on your ability to sleep well.

The American Psychological Association reports:

• 31 percent of millennials don’t get enough sleep because they’re thinking of things they need to do or haven’t finished yet.
• 35 percent say they have too many things to do and not enough time to sleep at least eight hours each night.

When you’re wedding planning, there’s practically no end to the list of things you need to do. But sleep should be at the top of your list.

When you don’t get enough sleep, there can be consequences including:

  • Feeling sluggish or lazy
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Skipping exercise
  • Increased stress

How to Get Better Sleep

Getting the sleep you need at night can help you better manage stress and feel more refreshed every day. Improve your sleep health and get quality rest each night with these tips for better sleep:

  • Make your bedroom a healthy sleep environment. Sleeping in a calm, quiet, and comfortable environment is key for healthy rest. Choose your mattress carefully, so you’re sleeping on a bed that meets your needs. Block out distractions such as bright lights and noise, using blackout curtains, earplugs, fans, or a white noise machine at night. Keep any wedding DIY projects out of your bedroom too.
  • Manage stress. Practice stress management throughout the day. Organize your tasks and set priorities. Ask for help, delegating tasks that you can’t or don’t need to do yourself. This tactic is especially important with wedding projects, as they can pile up quickly and become overwhelming.
  • Stay active. Regular exercise can help you manage stress and get the rest you need. Outdoor activities can support a healthy circadian rhythm by giving you good exposure to sunlight during the day. However, you should avoid intense physical exercise late at night, as it can leave you feeling too energized to sleep well. Going for a walk with your partner before your rehearsal dinner could be a good solution.
  • Follow a regular sleep schedule and bedtime routine. Consistent sleep can make it easier for you to sleep well at night. When you have a regular bedtime, your body will become tired at the same time and help you fall asleep faster. The same is true for a regular bedtime routine: when you go through the same steps before bed each night, your body recognizes the routine and starts to slow down and relax for sleep. Make sure that your rehearsal dinner timing doesn’t interfere with this schedule or you may struggle to sleep before your wedding.

Although many couples don’t worry about sleep issues until the night before the wedding, developing healthy sleep habits can take a few weeks. Practice making time to rest in the weeks leading up to your wedding so that you can ease into sleep on the night before your big day.

Couple’s Wedding Style

What Style Couple are you?

Most couples have a difficult time defining their style when it comes to planning their special day.  Some believe their ‘style’ is what their current home environment is while others believe their ‘style’ is  individual to the bride and individual to the groom.  Truth be told: they are all of the above combined.  Bringing a couple together to establish their stunning transformation into a ‘couples style,’ is one of the most fascinating and romantic time we enjoy when working with them.  It’s a new discovery for them to learn an aspect of each other that they did not know was still unexplored before the proposal.

Are you the TRADITIONALIST who loves classic, timeless patterns with a twist on black and white’s cool younger sister white and slate striking arrangements containing white cymbidium orchids paired with texture-rich succulents?

Are you the ECLECTIC who has a vision for mix-and-match combined with a retro style of accessories like Kate Spade and Baccarat?

Are you an ELEGANT who loves the soft tones with splashes of gold and mercury to add a sense of class and sophistication to your special day?

Are your VIBRANT who loves bold statement colors that adds a sense of fun to the wedding like Alice in Wonderland?

Whatever your style is,  find it and build a style for a lifetime together!

Where to Cut the Budget

Where to cut the budget?

Couples ask us all the time how to cut their budget, yet have a great party.  We tell them to make two lists similar to what you do when preparing your guests list:  make a list of your ‘must-haves’ and ‘like-to-haves’.

Your must-haves are anything that will directly impact the wedding experience such as food/beverage, if you don’t provide these you will have a mob on your hands!

The ‘like-to-haves’ are going to be a band vs. DJ, lush and expensive floral, lighting.  It is easier to downgrade floral and the form of entertainment, but it’s not so easy to justify why the food is awful.
