Stage 9: Get thee to the island!

On your marks… get set… GO… to Ibiza! Finally, the time has come for your highly anticipated return to the white isle, this time for the day you’ve been waiting for your whole life! By the time the week of your Ibiza wedding arrives, you’ll probably be feeling in need of an Ibiza holiday, which is why it’s important to remember to schedule yourself some downtime before the day itself.

Once you’ve checked in to your villa or hotel, book yourself in for some relaxing spa treatments, some relaxing yoga or meditation classes and lock in some serious beach time – though remember to wear a strong SPF at all times because there’s nothing worse than a bride with bright red strap marks!

It’s time to book your beauty treatments, pedicures and manicures, have a haircut or a spray tan (if you didn’t do it before leaving home), do the last of the de-fuzzing on the legs, brows and bikini lines and above all, allow yourself a little time to just breeeeeathe… the days to come will be filled with action, anxiety, excitement and emotion, so you’ll need to reserve all the energy you’ve got!

Be sure to eat well, drink plenty of water and get loads of rest. Sure it sounds boring – and Ibiza is a tempting playground – but just think of your wedding photos! Glowing skin and sparkling eyes don’t come from spending hours in a nightclub the night before your wedding! Do they?
