Pre-wedding nerves are to be expected; however, letting them take over and turn into bridezilla meltdowns is best avoided. Ensuring you breathe deeply and find a little time to lie back and relax along the way to the big day is well-advised. All the better if you inhale uplifting natural scents while doing so. Turn your daily beauty routines into mini timeouts where you cosset and care for yourself so you look and feel prepared to get on top of that to-do list and be the centre of attention from hen night to honeymoon.
