How to stay not-sick b/f the big day?

Recommended Posts

What are your hints for staying healthy and not getting sick during the final weeks before your wedding? Being stressed is not helpful for the immune system, so if you have any helpful hints, please let me know. I am also traveling for work the week before we leave for Mexico (don't ask), so I am very worried about catching something.

 

I plan to wash my hands obsessively, take a multivitamin every day, try to sleep as much as possible -- any other thoughts or secret remedies that you can share?

I have thought a lot about this since my wedding is right in the beginning on January. I think just getting a lot of sleep, exercise, and eating healthy is key, along with extra measures like vitamins, Purell, etc. :) I really think the biggest key is SLEEP, though. That always works wonders for me.

I swear by echinacea, I take the capsules though. Get them at the drug stores/Walmart etc. Don't take it if your allergic to ragweed though. I'm going to start taking it a week before we leave. It's always worked for me in the past.

I didn't feel well the week of my wedding and sounded like a frog on my wedding day. Oh well, still had a great time. Sometimes it just happens. I think the more you stress over it, the worse it'll be. How many days a year are you actually sick? I think the odds are in your favor. I wouldn't worry so much about it

I think not stressing is probably the biggest thing because you know what sometimes you just can't control it. I'm just going to try to eat right, take my vitamins, work out, sleep a lot etc... leading up to the wedding. If I get sick I'll just drink more that week to forget about feeling crappy, lol.

 

Honestly though, I'm sick right now and still had my BD shoot today and managed to have a good time so sometimes attitude has a lot to do with it.

    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
