How to get the perfect nights rest before you say 'I do'

With all the excitement built up for your big day, a peaceful slumber is crucial to ensure you look and feel great all day! SA Weddings has listed our favourite tips to ensure you enjoy a fabulous night t-minus one day before wedding celebrations commence!

Limit party interaction

It is always fun to be surrounded by your bride tribe the night before and to celebrate your final sleep as a Ms, but sometimes all the excitement is cause for a lot of distraction and disruption when you are trying to get some rest. Try surrounding yourself with a smaller group (maybe 1-2 girls) that will help calm your nerves, should you have any, but will also facilitate a proper night's rest. If you are all staying in the same room, ensure you have your own bed and the room is well organised. A cluttered room makes for a stressful environment and this is what we are trying to avoid at all costs.

Go tech-free

Probably the biggest thief of sleep are your gadgets. Take a moment to enjoy the moment and turn off all your electronics. Our best advice is to put your gadgets away an hour before you would like to get a bit of shut eye and rather wind down with a good read or a soothing cup of chamomile tea.

Soothe the soul

As the bride to be you should never say no to a little pampering. You deserve it after all! Make use of essential oils and fragrances that promote relaxation. Whether it is a soothing bubble bath, room diffuser or fragranced lotion, let the naturally relaxing scent help you unwind and prepare you mentally and physically for a peaceful night's rest.

Practice good lifestyle habits

In addition to the above, be mindful of practicing good lifestyle habits. This includes drinking plenty of water, eating well and exercising regularly. Listening and look after your body will promote proper rest and allow you to fall into a healthy sleeping pattern. Try your best to stay on top of your tasks and tick them off as you complete them. This will help you avoid the tossing and turning in bed whilst you make mental lists of the tasks that still need to be completed.

With all of these tips and tricks, we know you will wake up feeling absolutely fabulous and well rested on your wedding day.
