Unless wedding planning is in your blood, part of your profession, or you just happen to do it on the reg, chances are you've probably lost sleep and/or gained a few new wrinkles if you're deep in the throes of planning your own nuptials. Whether it's an IRL Bride Wars moment battling for a venue or a wedding vendor happens to fall through, complications leading up to the wedding are inevitably bound to arise. Despite finding the love of your life and all that jazz, being a bride is hard—it's ok to admit.
Cue calming wellness products for couples. Forget pricey spa appointments to rid you of your wedding-induced insomnia or nail-biting habit—keeping your cool can easily start within the comfort of your home at little cost. We're talking soothing face masks, hydrating shower gels, and more that will ease your mind, make self-care a top priority, and give you a head start on your pre-wedding beauty regimen.
Plus, inviting your partner to hop on the wellness bandwagon is bound to strengthen your relationship and improve both your moods before you walk down the aisle (happy wife, happy life, right!?). Your S.O. might not exactly jump at the chance to try a wellness-inspired coconut mask, but together you can harness the power of energy-boosting essential oils, or a calming bath soak to help set the mood. It might all sound like mumbo jumbo to you wellness skeptics out there, but don't knock it 'til you try it. May you and your soon-to-be-spouse find peace of mind during your wedding planning adventure with any of our 11 calming wellness product picks.
