Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You've worked so hard this past year so cut yourself some slack, and use this last week of 2015 to relax and spend quality time with family, friends and loved ones. Schedule an appointment for a pampering spa visit, or book a blowout from the hairstylist you're considering for your wedding day. By treating your body to something that feels good, you'll radiate from within as well.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
With many vendors out of the office for the holidays anyway, you don't have to feel so guilty about putting your wedding responsibilities on the backburner for now and making fun plans with your partner and friends.

Everything will work out, as it always does for you, however it's best to play it safe and stay on top of your priorities.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
New Year, new you! In 2016, it's advised to focus more on self-care and setting boundaries rather than people pleasing, particularly when it comes to the wedding.

Make yourself a priority, and in turn, you'll find more happiness and ease, as everything comes together seamlessly.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
