Planning a wedding takes work. From the venue to the dress, there's a lot to think about! It's common (and totally understandable) to feel overwhelmed. But while the occasional restless night is nothing to be concerned about, letting tension and anxiety takeover is far from healthy. One of the best ways to manage pre-wedding stress? Schedule some me time.
