    33 Things Anyone Who Is Planning A Wedding Should Treat Themselves To

    Planning a wedding will bring you a whole new level of understanding to the Olivia Rodrigo lyric "it's brutal out here."

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A necklace featuring a Mickey-shaped charm made out of onyx, which is said to be a protection and strength-giving stone (which you're likely in need of at this point in planning).

    2. A portable karaoke microphone to transform any gathering into a party from the moment you connect it to the app of your choosing. Ahem, that's just me clearing my throat to treat you all to my rendition of Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" (dedicated to my now-husband, who refused to have our first dance to "Love Story").

    3. A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite with an anti-glare screen so any bookworm can happily virtually flip through the pages of a novel while basking in the sun and avoiding working on their seating chart.

    4. A Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite you can count on to help you kick back and relax after a long day — it's about time you started diving into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

    5. A tub of Versed Day Dissolve cleansing balm, because you've likely been telling yourself you need to update your skincare routine before the big day for months now — let's do this.

    6. A tabletop fireplace with removable glass so you can enjoy a freshly made s'more any time of year — you deserve it.

    7. Peach and Lily Glass Skin Refining Serum that'll bring new meaning to "beauty rest" once you add it to your skincare routine.

    8. A Minnie Mouse plush featuring a removable 3-pound pouch to help calm your nerves and soothe your anxieties so you can drift off to dreamland sooner rather than later.

    9. A milk frother to pack a powerful, spinning punch despite looking rather delicate. It'll help transform your at-home coffee into one worthy of an actual spot on your 'gram (seriously, a fleeting IG story simply won't do it justice!).

    10. A cat teaser toy starring Mary from Hocus Pocus flying on her iconic vacuum so you and Fluffy (or dare I say, Binx???) can re-create your fave scene from the movie and decompress during playtime.

    11. Hello Kitty–themed pore strips that'll pull all the gross gunk and muck out of your nose while also, oddly, looking absolutely adorable.

    12. A bag of powdered cheddar, because if you're like me the moment anything bad happens (big or small) in my day I just want to curl up with a classic "boxed" mac 'n' cheese and de-stress. Perhaps not the healthiest coping mechanism, but it's mine.

    13. A tube of IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer you wouldn't think would be "fun" to use but you'll certainly agree with me when you see how it banishes your dark under-eye circles. It even boasts a 24-hour, crease-free, waterproof coverage without looking caked-on.

    14. A toothpaste cap for anyone who typically wakes up singing "Somebooooody once told me the world was gonna roll me" à la one of the greatest soundtracks of all time... Shrek. Or, you know, if you and your partner are in need of a good laugh — this'll do the trick.

    15. Ilia Beauty Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tint you'll surely be amazed by as it goes on as a liquid but dries as a powder, leaving you with flawless eye makeup. You're gonna look *so* good in your engagement photos!

    16. A Theragun Mini, ideal if you often find yourself slumped over and sitting in weird positions while scrolling Pinterest for ideas for hours upon hours.

    17. An elegant bottle of rose-scented bubble bath from Kylie Skin that you can break out on those terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad days. Soak away the stress and pretend, for a moment, you're actually Kylie; a billionaire with 246 million IG followers.

    18. A set of two blooming tea flowers that'll transform your standard morning cup of tea into a beautiful ritual you'll want to Instagram every day.

    19. A set of LED lightsaber chopsticks you'll probably misplace in your utensil drawer but then have the opportunity to exclaim "THESE are the ones I've been looking for!" once you've finally find them.

    20. A pair of gigantic peanut butter cups because I honestly cannot think of many reasons (other than being allergic to peanuts, duh) why you shouldn't have this in your life RIGHT NOW.

    21. Matte hair clips made to work with *all* hair types — yes, even if you've broken your hairbrush while trying to comb through your bedhead, you can rock one of these beauties!

    22. A crystal glass butterfly bracelet you'll want to buy a handful of for everyone in your life — it's the epitome of beauty and would certainly make for a stunning mood booster.

    23. A knit weighted blanket you've probably seen while indulging in a scroll of your Instagram feed — it's weighted naturally with a layering technique instead of with artificial filling. And it looks SO cottagecore chic!

    24. A darling dress featuring puffy sleeves and a bow in the back that'll make you want to abandon your life and run away to live in the countryside and just feed baby goats 'til the end of your days.

    25. A mini bag sealer that'll make it easier than ever to sneak a few cookies out of your partner's favorite dessert that they always leave a note over that says "DO NOT EAT THESE." Use this to reseal the packaging — they'll never know 😉.

    26. A fantastic coloring book with playful illustrations of characters from your favorite spooky movies that you won't be able to resist adding to your cart. I mean, just look at the cover — it's pink and has a sandworm on it!

    27. Fuzzy slippers to stylishly keep your tootsies warm and help you channel Sharpay Evans vibes at all times.

    28. A linen bedding set you and your partner can use to refresh your shared room — no need to wait for someone to buy it off of your registry.

    29. Fa-boo-lous skeleton earrings you definitely don't *need* but absolutely will want for the upcoming spooky season. Your future mother-in-law will love 'em 😅.

    30. A notepad that'll remind you of freshly picked flowers each time you jot down a wedding to-do — or, more excitingly, when you cross something off the list.

    a notepad with a built-in check box list and florals at the top around the phrase "let's do this!"

    31. A Jiggy puzzle subscription, a must-have if you've been famously puzzlin' since before it was cool. You'll receive a new 500-piece puzzle every month to help get you through this exciting (but very busy!) season of life.

    32. A "Cheugy and Proud" candle that'll make you laugh every time you light it. It's a must for anyone who is tired of their younger sibling teasing them about their likes/dislikes/age.

    33. And a subscription to Book of the Month, so when you finally score a moment of free time you can spend it reading something new.

    Don't worry — you've got this! No matter what your special day looks like I can assure you it'll be amazing ❤️.
