It's fine to admit you're nervous about your wedding. Jane Greer, marriage and sex therapist, thinks it is perfectly normal to be nervous: "a marriage is so permanent, and it's not uncommon for people to second-guess themselves. Are they settling? Should they have waited? Is this really the right person?" All these thoughts, paired with an overwhelming amount of pre-wedding activity might just feel like too much. The Knot, a reputable wedding source, suggests a few things to reduce nerves: meditation, doing your favorite hobbies, papering yourself, and open communication with your partner. All those things would be helpful, especially when done the Tahoe way. Here's the top five pre-wedding activities that will help your wedding jitters:
Paddle Board Yoga
Challenge your yogi game on the lake with paddle board yoga. The extra challenge will be sure to keep your mind focused instead of drifting away to the wedding and accomplishing an hour of extreme balance will make you feel like you can conquer the world (and your wedding).
Take a Solo Hike
Getting out on the trail by yourself will allow your brain time to work out all its kinks without the pressure of confessing them to another person, plus it's a great workout before the big day!
Get way out of your comfort zone by hitting up an adventure course. Like an "aerial trek through the forest" with Tahoe Treetop Adventures. These courses feature rope swings, wobbly bridges, swinging logs, tightropes, cargo nets, zip lines, and horizontal climbing calls in a progression to put you up to the ultimate challenge.
Rent a Kayak & Explore
Another great workout, kayaks are arguably the best way to see the lake. You can get a fair distance by kayak and you can also bring along a picnic - great opportunity to steal your fiance away from the craziness and remember why you can't wait to marry him or her.
Ever been skydiving over Tahoe? How about rock climbing? Trying extreme activities will release a huge rush of endorphins and, in the great words of Elle Woods, "Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't shoot their husbands, they just don't."
