Brides lose it sometimes. It’s a fact. Whether it’s forgetting to eat or double-booking cake tastings, it’s a whirlwind time, and it’s tough to keep it together.
Fear not. We’ve collected our top five must-have items for the wedding to ensure you stay on track, whether it’s losing those extra pounds, keeping appointments, or remaining focused. Imagine a scale that logs weight loss for you or a cute portable fruit-infuser water bottle to keep you hydrated on the go. Grab these, and your best friend of course, and tackle that bridal thing like a champ.
Boston-based Lose It! was one of our top wedding workout apps. So when they invented a scale that links directly to your phone, we said yes please. Now instead of keeping a separate journal for your weight and food (who has that kind of time?), you just step on the Health-O-Meter Lose It! Bluetooth Body Fat Scale, step off, then it wirelessly transmits all your data to the Lose It! app. You can track your BMI, weight loss, hydration, and body fat. All without lifting a finger. | Available via Amazon.com, $79.99.
Stay on Track
Wedding planners, your jobs are in jeopardy with wedding organizers on the market. Brides-to-be can now keep track of all aspects of the wedding inside this hardcover binder’s 176 pages. The All the Essentials Wedding Planner guides you through seating charts, invitation tips, venue selection, and more. There’s an expense worksheet, reception table charts, and even a place for notes on guests like allergies or gluten-free diet restrictions. When it comes to organizing, you’ll want for nothing. | Available at Barnes & Noble, $35.
You know you’re supposed to stay hydrated for a healthy body and glowing skin. Wouldn’t it be great if that amazing fruit infusion pitcher in your fridge could tag along with you on all your appointments? The Zing Anything Citrus Zinger Water Bottle allows you to make on-the-go fresh citrus water (hello, detox magic). Just twist lemon, lime or orange into the bottom, then keep the rind, pulp and seeds separate but still steeping. You can even put iced tea in for an added caffeine pick-me-up when you’re heading to yet another florist meet-and-greet. For those extra crazy days, pick up to their VodkaZinger, which infuses vodka with fruit and flavors. Shhh…we won’t tell. | Available at Crate & Barrel, $15.95.
Who doesn’t love the classic hearts-and-dance designs by artist Keith Haring? Channel all their excitement, love, and happiness into your daily cleansing ritual with Clarisonic’s new Mia 2 Keith Haring “Dance” Skin Cleansing System. Its sonic technology claims to clean your skin six times better than your hands could, getting rid of 30 times more pollutants than just a simple wash. The beep tells you when to stop after 60 seconds, so feel free to let your mind wander. | Available at Sephora, $149.
Sleep is your best friend, but it can be elusive when you have so much on your mind. One of the keys to getting a good night’s sleep is to just relax and breathe deeply. Lavender has been known to help with insomnia and anxiety, and research has confirmed that using the scent of these blue-violet flowers for aromatherapy can bring about a slight calming, soothing effect. Aura Cacia’s Lavender Room & Body Mist is perfect for spritzing on a pillow for some sweet shut eye. | Available at Whole Foods, $7.99.
