How to Save Money While Practicing Self-Care Before Your Wedding

When you're planning for a wedding, it's normal to be stressed. You have a lot to take care of in a short amount of time, and you're in charge of making a lot of important choices while working within a limited budget. It's important to make time for self-care, while also saving money and sticking to your planned budget.

Here are some tips for frugal living while also focusing on your own self-care leading up to your big day.

Plan Beauty Treatments Early

Be sure to plan any necessary beauty treatments well in advance of your wedding date, so that you have time to plan for the expense and add it to your budget. This is especially true of more expensive spa treatments, cosmetic dental treatments, Botox, or fillers. Fillers, for example, are injected into the face to improve contours and fill in fine lines and wrinkles caused by age or genetics. These may be necessary for your wedding day so that you can look your best, but can be hard on the wallet. Often, a local spa will offer package deals, allowing you to plan and budget for several items at once.

Plan for Enough Sleep

Be sure to allow enough time to sleep well in the few months leading up to your wedding. Lack of sleep can actually increase your stress, making everything more difficult and you more irritable. Allowing a full 8 hours each night for you to get enough rest can help make the wedding planning go more smoothly and is an excellent self-care method.

Make Time to De-Stress

As your wedding day gets closer, it's normal to feel more stressed and anxious. In fact, more than half of women report that wedding planning is more stressful than they'd estimated and that they're spending more than 11 hours per week planning their wedding. If you've found yourself in this position, know that it's completely normal. Make some time each day to unwind after wedding planning, and do your best to set aside some time each week to focus on relaxing and managing your stress. This time can help you feel as if you're more in control of your life, and the dedicated time can help you manage your stress.

Focus on Communication

In many situations, couples experience communication issues as the wedding date approaches. These are often related to managing finances, wedding preparations, and issues with extended family. If you and your fiance are struggling to get along as the wedding date approaches, focus on communicating with each other and how important this process is. If necessary, contact a professional therapist and visit for a few appointments so that the two of you can learn some new communication skills and techniques.

Keep It Simple

As you plan your wedding and the date gets closer, you may need to begin to eliminate some of the things you'd initially planned for in order to save money and practice appropriate self-care. Your wedding is an important day, but your relationship with your partner is more important than the event itself. In fact, around 70% of couples live together before they opt to get married, so the celebration is of a relationship that is already strong and involved. Keep your plans simple so that you can continue to focus on the important parts of the relationship and build a stronger union that will last a lifetime.

Planning a wedding is an extremely stressful event, so it's important to focus on self-care throughout the entire process. Doing so can help make sure that you're as calm and healthy as possible for your big day, and that you're entering your relationship on the best possible footing.
