On the night before your wedding, you will be excited, nervous, and thinking a million thoughts all at once. This is one thing that will definitely not help you sleep. Even if you are exhausted, having a racing mind can keep you up for hours. This means you have to clear your mind and attempt to not worry about anything.
Write in a journal, getting all of your worries down on paper can help you to get them out of your head and allow you to focus on other things, like sleep. Meditating is also a great way to clear your mind, focus on your breathing and listen to calming sounds or music you love. Just make sure your mind doesn’t begin to wander.
If you are worried about things you need to take care of in the morning and no sure if you will remember everything, simply write down a to-do list and make sure you write down everything you need to do. You will be able to better get these things out of your head and focus on them tomorrow.

This is a simple way to calm your nerves and can help you feel better. A warm bath can reduce your wedding anxiety and allow you to truly relax.

This is something that should be done more than just the day before your wedding. Exercise can help to reduce stress as well as improve sleep. Start working out regularly leading up to your wedding and give yourself a head start on the good night of sleep. Not only will it help you to destress and sleep better, but it can also help you to feel better, emotionally, mentally, and physically.
There are different exercises you can do the night before the wedding that will help you sleep, but you should try to work out at some point during the day before your wedding. Do some relaxing yoga poses before bed to help you prepare for a deeper sleep. Exercising a few hours before you head to bed can help promote better sleep, so don’t be lazy the day before your wedding.
Take A Supplement
Taking a sleeping supplement can help you to fall asleep and stay asleep. Melatonin is a natural hormone that your body creates to regulate sleep, but sometimes technology and other things can affect this hormone. Taking melatonin pills or other sleep supplements can help your body get back on track and help you sleep.
If you generally take other sleeping aids, but they make you drowsy, try to avoid these before your wedding day, or take a smaller dosage. You do not want to be drowsy on your wedding day, and drinking coffee to keep you awake may just turn you into a sweating and nervous wreck.
Things To Avoid
There are a few things that you should definitely avoid if you are hoping for a deep sleep the night before your wedding.
You should also avoid alcohol. Even though you may think back to your drunken nights of great sleep, drinking alcohol before bed may help you fall asleep but it may not keep you asleep, so if you are wanting to sleep through the entire night, avoid that third glass of wine.The first is pretty obvious—caffeine. While having a cup of coffee in the morning is fine, you will not want to have any coffee after 1 p.m. Drinking coffee or other sources of caffeine after this time could suppress sleep waves, making it difficult for you to fall asleep. So even if you are feeling sluggish after lunch, try to avoid the temptation of caffeine.
Try not to sleep in the morning before your wedding day. Sleeping until noon may make it more difficult for you to fall asleep at a reasonable time that night, so set an alarm and get up to face the day and all it has to offer. This is a great time to get things done that need to be done in time for the wedding. Sleeping in will only cause you more stress and keep you up way later than you ever hoped to be.
If you generally never have trouble sleeping, you may not need any of these tips, but with one of the most important days ahead of you, you may need more help sleeping than usual. Getting enough sleep the night before your wedding can affect how you view your wedding. Something that may be stressful and overwhelming to an exhausted bride may be completely perfect to a bride who got a full night of sleep.
