Everything has changed for us. Really, there is nothing that’s operating the same as it was before COVID-19 hit the scene. We had to make adjustments to our day to day lives. And we have also had to adjust making plans for the future.
But, we don’t want this virus to hold us back or stop us from making important plans like planning for your wedding. A wedding is a pivotal event in your life and there’s no reason you can’t still enjoy the planning and preparation process.
Of course, you can’t go in person to many places right now but many businesses are still operating online and you can still make your plans. Here are a few top tips to help you avoid pre-wedding anxiety while you prepare for your big day.
Premarital counselling online
An important aspect of wedding preparation is the premarital counselling session. There are so many helpful benefits to premarital counselling such as:
Opening important conversations before getting married, and making sure you and your partner are on the same page.
Learning how to communicate with respect and positivity.
Learn how to handle conflict.
Dealing with any issues in a positive and supported space.
There’s no need to worry about missing this important pre-wedding step because ReGain has online premarital counselling services available. It’s quite convenient to have the counselling from the comfort of your own home with a trained professional counsellor who can also help you manage pre-wedding stress.
Ground yourself with Mindfulness and Meditation
Stress can easily lead to anxiety which can lead to insomnia and other physical issues. Practising mindfulness and meditation will help keep you grounded and calm. It’s been proven that people who practise mindfulness have less insomnia, fatigue, and depression.

Don’t Skip Meals
Food can become such a huge focus in wedding preparation. The stress to have the perfect day can be daunting for people and add so much stress.
Don’t let the stress of planning the perfect day throw off your diet and routine. At times of stress, it’s more important than ever to uphold a balanced and healthy diet.
Protect and heal your Energy
It’s important to realize that with any situation we only have three choices – to accept it, change it or remove yourself from it. When we realize this then we can reduce our stress. There is no purpose to worrying or stressing over things you can’t change or don’t want to remove yourself from. Acceptance becomes key.
Our auras hold our stress which can have a knock-on effect to our physical, emotional and mental health. Meditation and mindfulness can help us release this energy as well as having natural energy healing sessions.
When it comes to looking after your mental health, remember to take each day at a time and stay present. Release what you can’t change and don’t let stress accumulate. It might be helpful to talk to a counsellor as well to help you work through the anxiety and also to prepare for the big wedding day.
