August 23, 2018 , In: Drift , With: No Comments

Preparing for a wedding is typically thought of to be mostly planning. There are endless decisions to make and even with a professional planner at your side, it’s all very stressful. Part of making sure that your wedding is going to be a success is taking care of yourself. This means something different for every bride. What you should do for yourself will revolve around your mental, physical or spiritual well-being.

Before your wedding arrives, look into some wellness wedding retreats so you’re refreshed and ready to start the next chapter of your life. The right wellness retreat for you will get you feeling more centered and excited than wedding planning ever could.

Santani Yoga

People are always talking about the benefits of doing yoga, but you may not have gotten into it yet. You don’t need to do it every day to feel the changes it can bring, so why not try it out at a wellness wedding retreats that will guide you through every move?

At Santani in southern Sri Lanka, you’ll find yourself surrounded by nature and all the peace it brings. You’ll be able to join yoga, cooking and meditation classes or hike the days away. You’re sure to find an activity that you’ll enjoy, far away from the stresses of wedding planning.

Six Senses Douro Valley Yogic Sleep

Dealing with high levels of stress for long periods of time can produce different side effects. One of the most common ones is loss of sleep. Catch up on the sleep you’ve lost at Six Sense Douro Valley. You can learn yogic practices to rest your mind that will help ease you to sleep on the most stressful days. In your mornings and afternoons, get massages, vitamin therapies and holistic treatments to pass the time.

COMO Shambhala Estate Rejuvenation

Take yourself somewhere new and lose yourself in gorgeous tropical forests. The COMO Shambhala estate specializes in rejuvenation so you can trust that you’re getting an all-natural spa experience in-between fitness classes. Improve digestion and hormonal balance while you increase your flexibility and metabolic rate. You’ll also receive a personalized nutrition plan so you can help your body be the best it can be.

Ananda Rejuvenation

When you picture a peaceful place, you might think of somewhere with mountain ranges. Ananda has you covered. It’s a retreat for you to experience a spiritual escape from the stresses of wedding planning. Wellness wedding retreats can advise you on how to deal with stress and what practices will benefit your body. You’ll leave feeling rejuvenated and ready to tackle anything that lies ahead.

The Retreat Destination Detox

Detox is another theme that brides will find everywhere before their wedding day. Detoxing is meant to make you feel better so you feel your best, but you don’t have to worry about doing it alone.

At The Retreat Costa Rica, you’ll enjoy spending time in a boutique resort that will teach you all about the world of detoxing. Some wellness wedding retreats offer special perks based on their location. This one offers locally grown food and healing massages will get you in the right mindset to go back for your wedding.

To getaway to a resort that will make you feel worlds away without paying the airfare, visit Two Bunch Palms. You’ll love the mineral spring resort because it’s known for having therapists and aestheticians that will change your life. For those who love living green lifestyles, it’s also an eco-friendly resort even down to their suites.

La Quinta Resort & Club

Your idea of a retreat might not be complete without lots of water to swim in and enjoy, which would make La Quinta Resort & Club the perfect place for you. There’s yoga and health classes to enjoy, but most importantly it has some of the best pools in the country — 41 of them to be exact. They’re temperature controlled too, so your winter wedding won’t prevent you from getting away to a warm pool.

Miraval Resort & Spa

The Miraval Resort & Spa is no stranger to bachelorette parties, so if you want to get away with a big group of friends, they’ll easily be able to accommodate everyone. Just outside of Tucson, the resort has spa services and outdoor excursion packages so you can wrap everything up under one affordable price.

Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa

You don’t need to travel far for a traditional escape to Florida. Eua Palm Beach Resort & Spa has award winning yoga classes and spa services right on the beach. The resort has a zen theme to it, so you’ll always feel like you’re being centered and pampered at the same time.


It might seem like a lot to get away on a wellness retreat, but they’re actually much simpler to plan than you might think. Once you find some wellness wedding retreats that serve your needs, choose the dates you want to go. The rest will be handled when you get there, so you can focus on your wedding.
