If a daily workout routine is part of your lifestyle, don't let your wedding overshadow your health.
Likewise, if you've never worked out a day in your life...or at least not consistently over the past few months...don't let your wedding fears force you to run a marathon the morning of your wedding.
Whether you should exercise on the morning of you wedding depends on those factors, as well as many others, including what your overall day looks like, whether you were up partying the night before, and whether you've packed your wedding day schedule to the brim.
Personally, we believe that the morning of your wedding should be unique, magical, yet retain some aspects of normality.
To Work Our or Not?
The answer is simple, is it in your morning routine to get in a good workout? Do you work out every day of the week? Do you need a quick run or a few heavy weights in order to feel like yourself and have your best day?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you need to make time for the gym on your wedding morning.
Here's what you should beign working on...
1. Yoga: If you routinely use yoga in your week or workout routines, there is no better time than your wedding morning to take a yoga class. Release tension, get loose, let go of stress and anxiety about the big day, even invite your bridesmaids!
2. Brisk Walk or Run: If you can't find a local gym or perhaps just don't have time to get in a good workout, consider taking a run or brisk walk around the hotel or town. This is a great way to burn off anxiety and keep the jitters from overtaking your day. Even a small hike or a bike ride is a great way to breathe some fresh air and clear your head before you say "I Do."
3. Trainer: If you have a trainer, and are getting married close to home, I would absolutely schedule an appointment with your trainer on the morning of your wedding...if you routinely see him or her. Your trainer should know how to help you release some tension with light workouts, just enough to start your day and get you ready for the "I Do's."
No matter how you spend the morning of your wedding, make it peaceful, fun and memorable! Do what you need to do to be at your best for your best day!
