Bride Guide #6 from Logan Utah photographer Lauren Kay Photography
Before I was a Logan Utah photographer, if you would’ve asked me what relationship is most important when you get married, I would’ve said with your spouse. But the truth is, your relationship with yourself is what is most important.
You know how it goes. You get busy and the first thing to go on your to-do list to is you. Your exercise. Your time to relax and recharge. Anything that is purely just for you. Right? Ladies, the most important relationship on your wedding day is not with your groom or anyone else. It’s with yourself. Self-care is where the wedding planning all starts. Seriously, it is! It may seem inconsequential but it is absolutely the most important thing you can do to prepare for your wedding and marriage.
Don’t stop taking care of yourself like I did. Your confidence and how you feel about yourself is crucial to loving your wedding day and night. You will be so busy during this time that it feels like the first thing that should go, but taking care of yourself is essential.
You are worth it. When you spend money or time on something, you tell your brain that it matters to you. And girl, you matter.
If I would’ve taken care of myself and invested in myself, I know our wedding would’ve been leaps and bounds better than it was. If you do one thing, please, take care of yourself. You are worth it.
It’s so easy to brush things off and say you’re fine. Especially when you’re engaged. But ladies. Face your crap head on. Do the things you need to in order to have a good relationship with yourself. Try and stand back up when you fall, because you will fall. Don’t be hard on yourself. And let people help you.
Why should you do these things? Clearer skin, less anxiety and stress, better mood, weight management, more energy, better sleep, boosted immunity, clearer thinking, more self-esteem, better memory, increased creativity, better attention and focus, less irritability and depression, and increased libido… should I keep going?
