Whether your wedding is months behind you, years away, or happening next weekend, most of us love scoping out design-friendly wedding plans. Okay, okay – maybe not the seating chart squabbles and which-of-the-ten-shades-of-sage-green decisions, but the planning process in that divine stage of real or imaginary Pinterest planning.

Our bridal party Pinterest contest starts today with the one-and-only Style Me Pretty, the winnings, a Pressed Juicery 3-Day Cleanse for one bride and up to three bridesmaids. So, whether you’re loving the planning phase or not, at least you’ll look great doing it.

Abby Larson, chief style guru behind the whole Style Me Pretty wedding planning empire, founded the site to raise the wedding bar for the modern bride, and that she has. We love Style Me Pretty’s convenient resource guides and gorgeous, curated content helping brides to make the most creative decisions possible.

In the world of weddings, life begins and ends with a happy bride. Not a perfect bride, perhaps not even a fully organized one, but gosh darn if she shouldn’t be a happy bride. We asked Abby, with her wealth of bridal experience, what it takes to stay calm and healthy during the whole wedding blitz. Take note of Abby’s tips and make it down the aisle in happily glowing good health…
