How to get a good night’s sleep before your wedding:

Sleepy scents

Anxious wedding preppers who are finding it difficult to ease their mind into sleep may benefit from filling their room with scents to aid sleep. Scents like jasmine and lavender have a rich and sweet smell which is often used for relaxing purposes in aromatherapy.

The easiest way to bring these scents into your bedroom is by purchasing a room and pillow mist. Just spray it on your bed before you go to sleep and it will effectively aid your slumber.

Pre-bed workout

Daily exercise has been long praised for its impact on a good slumber. Planning a routine ahead of your wedding evening can be the trick to get you off to a quick and peaceful sleep, whether it is a slow yoga session or a trip to the gym for a more intense workout. Staying active increases your metabolism and helps decrease stress and anxiety.

Stay off your phone

If you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night, the best thing to do is to avoid any sort of mental stimulation. This means, staying off your phone and avoiding thinking of any wedding details or worries.

If this fails, have a book nearby that you can reach for to distract your mind and send you back into sleep.

Watch what you eat

On the day before your wedding, stay away from spicy foods and heavy meals before bed. Your body needs time to digest the food properly before you get to bed, to avoid any difficulties falling asleep.

 Avoid caffeine

As tempting as it may be to sit back with a cup of coffee ahead of your important day, it is important to limit caffeine at least eight hours before heading to bed. Coffee, tea and other caffeinated drinks can stick around in your system for longer than expected, leading to a night of tossing and turning in bed.
