5 New Year’s Resolutions for Brides-to-be

As 2011 comes to a close, many of you may be starting to think about those New Year’s resolutions. If you are planning a wedding for 2012, here are a few resolutions you may want to consider.


Get Healthy

Every bride wants to look and feel gorgeous on her wedding day. Make-up and a fancy dress can help with this, but there are little changes you can make throughout the year to ensure a beautiful face and figure for the big day. It is as simple as beginning an exercise plan and adapting healthy eating habits. If you want boundless energy and glowing skin, start tweaking your lifestyle well in advance.

Pinch Pennies

We all know that weddings are expensive, but the cost doesn’t have to be stressful. Start looking for ways to cut expenses several months before the wedding. These can be simple changes like making coffee at home instead of stopping at the local coffee shop or cooking more homemade meals instead of always eating out. Put the money you save into a designated wedding account.

Get Organized

Weddings are more stressful when you are unorganized, so figure out a way to relieve some of the stress. One idea is to create a folder for all of your wedding papers such as receipts and contracts. You could also create online inspiration boards to free yourself from mounds of cut-out pictures.


Learn to Relax

As the wedding gets closer, your nerves and stress levels will start to get a little out of control. Start learning how to manage stress now, so it will not impact your big day. A few options include yoga and meditation.



Remember those people you asked to be in your wedding and to attend your wedding? Well, you might want to actually spend some time with them before the big day arrives. And don’t make all your dates involve wedding plans. Your friends and family have things going on in their lives besides your wedding; find out about them.
