How to Rest & Relax Before Your Elopement Day

Eloping is such a special and intimate way to express your love for each other, but the days leading up to your elopement can sometimes feel overwhelming and chaotic. This is why it is SO IMPORTANT to take some time for yourselves to rest and unwind, ensuring that you can be fully present and savor every moment of your big day. Here are some tips to help you remain present and in the moment before exchanging your vows.

Practice Mindfulness

Taking a few moments each day to practice mindfulness can work wonders in reducing stress and helping you appreciate the present moment. Whether it’s a calming walk outdoors or a short meditation session, focus on your breath, the sensations in your body, and the sounds around you. By letting go of worries about the past or future, you can center your mind, alleviate anxiety, and truly immerse yourself in the here and now.

Use Affirmations (with yourself AND your partner!)

Crafting affirmations with your partner that reflect your journey and dreams can be incredibly empowering. Phrases like “Our elopement will happen exactly as it’s meant to” or “It is okay to remain firm in having our elopement in a way that feels authentic to us” can reinforce your bond and commitment. Repeat these affirmations to each other or silently to yourself whenever you need a boost of confidence or reassurance amidst the hustle and bustle of elopement preparations.

Spend Intentional Quality Time with Your Partner

Amidst the chaos of planning, it’s essential to connect on a deeper level without getting caught up in logistics. Whether it’s a cozy dinner at home, a hike with your fur babies, or simply snuggling up for a movie night, prioritize moments that remind you of your love and connection. This dedicated time together reinforces your relationship and reminds you both of the love that brought you to the decision to spend the rest of your forever together in the first place.

Friend, remember that eloping is about honoring your love in a way that feels authentic to both of you. By incorporating mindfulness, affirmations, and meaningful time together into your pre-elopement routine, you’re not just preparing for a day, but nurturing a lifetime of love and understanding.
