Welcome to my very first blog post, where we briefly discuss a topic that is near and dear to my heart – “self-care”. If you just rolled your eyes a little, listen, I get it; the term ‘self-care’ has become quite the buzzword, and you might be tired of hearing it. But let’s set the record straight – self-care isn’t just a trendy phrase; it’s the very foundation of your well-being and you are worth it.

As a recent bride myself, I know that the journey to your big day can be one of the most exhilarating times of your life and that it can also be overwhelming and stress-filled. Between the budget, the vendors, the venues, and our loved one’s thoughts, wishes, and opinions, your mental and emotional well-being can really take a beating. The fact that you’re reading this right now leads me to believe it already has. That’s why I’m here as your wedding wing woman, to assure you that it doesn’t have to.

Let’s talk about that and why it’s so valuable.

Taking time out of our busy schedules to care for ourselves can reduce stress, improve our mood, and enhance our overall well-being. Studies have indicated that self-care practices like meditation, yoga, and exercise can reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, and enhance brain function. These practices can also help us manage our emotions, increase self-awareness, and cultivate inner peace. If you need evidence, I’ll provide a few studies at the bottom for you to review. But why not give it a try and find out firsthand how these practices can benefit you?

By dedicating time to care for yourself, you’ll feel more energized, less stressed, and better equipped to navigate the ups and downs of wedding planning. What’s more, you’ll be developing a habit that will enrich your life beyond your special day. 

Honestly, why wouldn’t you practice?


If your brain just offered you a couple of thoughts that answered that, I’m not surprised at all. Sadly, mostly due to societal conditioning, many folks I’ve worked with, brides included, have unintentionally overlooked its significance.  Myself included. And then one day about 6 years ago,  I started to make little changes throughout my day. What I listened to before I went to bed, how I transitioned between work and home, and what I went to when I felt upset. 

Self-care not only enriched my wedding experience, it changed my life, so you best believe it will positively transform your journey too.

But what is a self-care sanctuary?


Self-Care Sanctuary it’s something that we create for ourselves, day by day, through practices and rituals. It’s the reassuring trust that, no matter what moment we’re in, we’ll return to nurture ourselves. Again and again and again.  A self-care sanctuary is a place within our hearts and routines where well-being takes center stage. It’s a promise to ourselves that we will consistently invest time in activities that promote physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental health. And it’s  as simple as journaling,  a  walk, an oracle reading, or a moment of mindfulness. Each of these daily practices contributes to the foundation of your self-care sanctuary.

So, let’s take this important step together to ensure that you shine on your wedding day and beyond. I officially challenge you to dedicate a little time to care for yourself daily. It doesn’t have to be much. Just one practice, intentionally chosen and after no time you’ll feel more energized, less stressed, and better equipped to navigate the ups and downs of wedding planning. What’s more, you’ll be developing a habit that will enrich your life beyond your special day. 

As you step onto this enchanting path of self-care, remember the words of the great author, Maya Angelou:

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
