Know A Stressed-Out Bride-To-Be? 3 Gifts That Will Help Relieve The Stress

Planning for a wedding can be extremely stressful. Unfortunately, the stress seems to increase as the big day gets closer. If you have a friend who's knee-deep in wedding planning, you may want to help unwind a bit. If you're the maid of honor, that might be even more important since it's your job to keep the bride's nerves from unraveling. Here are three surprise gifts you can give the bride-to-be.

A Day at the Spa

If your bride-to-be is stressed out, help them relax by sending them to the spa for the day. Make sure you've made all the plans so that they don't have to be bogged down by last minute choices. Make sure you include the following options in the spa package.


Lack of sleep, dehydration and stress can leave skin looking dull and lifeless. Arrange a hydrafacial treatment for your bride-to-be. The facial will cleanse and exfoliate the skin and leave it with a youthful, fresh appearance – which is perfect for the wedding day.


Wedding planning can fill a schedule up fast. If your bride-to-be hasn't had time for a mani/pedi lately, add one to the spa package. Not only is it a relaxing option, it's also a great way to remove one more item off the to-do list.


Running all over town can lead to sore, tired muscles. It can also lead to tension headaches, which can put a damper on the wedding planning. Adding a massage to the spa package will help loosen sore muscles and alleviate some of the stress that's building up as the big day draws closer.

A Couples Massage

If it's been a while since the couple has time to relax together, consider springing for a couple's massage. Individual massages are a good way to relax but a couple's massage will allow them to enjoy a quiet moment together.

A Night in a Hotel

If your bride-to-be hasn't had time to get a good night's sleep in a while, send them to a hotel for the night. They'll be able to relax and unwind without worrying about what's going on around them. A night away from home will provide your bride-to-be with the rest they'll need to get back to planning.

If you're the maid of honor, you want to do everything you can to alleviate stress. Use the tips provided here to give your bride-to-be the rest they need.
