    1. Dose your skin with this hydrating rose water facial mist to give it that pre-marital glow. It's made without any gunky ingredients (think parabens, dyes, or silicones), and uses only skin-loving powerhouses like rose essence, olive extract, witch hazel, and hydrolyzed collagen.

    Amazon / Via

    You can also use it to set your makeup, tone your skin after cleansing, or to tame flyaways! It's the perfect ally to have when you're running from an appointment with your florist to a meeting with the venue.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $16.99.

    2. Atomize your favourite essential oils with this elegant hand-blown nebulizer. It releases micro-fine particles that distribute quickly and evenly, even in large rooms. Unlike diffusers, this contraption doesn't use any water. This inhibits the growth of mould, and prevents things from getting musty.

    Amazon / Via

    The base is made of solid hardwood (no yucky, toxic plastics), so it's environmentally friendly and long lasting, too. You can even snag some essential oils here.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $124 (also available in black).

    3. Spritz some of this natural pillow spray on your pillow before slumber, and dream of your wedding day. It's infused with vetiver, chamomile, and lavender — three natural ingredients that have been used for centuries to induce deeper, more restful sleep.

    A little goes a long way, too, so you can use this all the way through the planning process.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $58.94.

    4. Feel like a princess (👰🏻bride👰🏻) the next time you tuck in for a snooze with this mulberry silk eye mask. It's naturally hypoallergenic, unbelievably soft, and extremely flexible to prevent unpleasant pinching or squeezing.

    Amazon / Via

    It's naturally resistant to dust mites and other pests, too! Although it does block out light, I'd recommend getting it in a darker colour if you'd like a more complete blocking effect.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $22.95+ (available in three colours and in three packs).

    5. Aerate your fave wine with these these nifty wine glasses. They'll also give you a handy way of holding it — more sip, less slip!

    Amazon / Via

    Just sit back, and unwind after a long day of cake testing.

    Get a set of four on Amazon Canada for $33.99.

    6. Stay comfortable AND stylish with this oversized tunic. The easy pull-on style makes it a great companion for dress fittings, too!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $32.38+ (available in sizes XS-XXL, and in six colours).

    7. Bust any impending sniffles or coughs with this David's Tea Cold 911 herbal tea that's packed with peppermint, eucalyptus, orange peel, apple, and juniper berries. And it's naturally caffeine free so it won't keep you up at night.

    All these ingredients work together to help boost your immune system, soothe sore throats, and keep you feeling your best as you zoom around planning your nuptials.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $16.

    8. Freshen, protect, and soothe frazzled skin with these Boscia green tea blotting papers. Plus, they look cute as heck, too! The slim packaging makes them great for tucking into your purse and using on the go. You can at least pretend you're calm, cool, and collected (even if you're not).

    @boscia / Via, @boscia / Via

    They're also available in oil-absorbing charcoal bamboo and clear complexion formulas.

    Get a pack of 100 papers on Amazon Canada for $14.

    9. Keep salt and grime from ruining your footwear with these all-natural boot wipes. They work on all kinds of boots and shoes — even leather, or fickle nubuck, or suede! It also wouldn't hurt to have these puppies on hand if you're planning a winter wedding (salt is like, shoe Kryptonite).

    Amazon / Via

    And because they're individually packaged, you can keep one (or two) into your coat pocket for on-the-go rescue work.

    Get a pack of 10 individually wrapped wipes on Amazon Canada for $8.99.

    10. Treat yourself to some all-natural bath cubes that are scented with natural citrus and lavender essential oils. They're made of completely natural and organic ingredients, so no need to worry about skin irritants here!

    Amazon / Via

    Their angular shape means they won't roll around, making them a relaxing addition to showers, too, if you find you don't have time for a bath. This company also has amazing lotion sticks for a super convenient way to keep your skin soft and hydrated before the big day.

    Get four cubes on Amazon Canada for $19.99 (available in seven packs).

    11. Block out stress (and incessant phone calls from relatives) with these Urban Ears Bluetooth headphones. They combine noise-cancelling technology with incredible comfort, so you can go ahead and wear these all day. You'll be able to say, "I'm sorry, Aunt Trudy, I honestly didn't know you called. Seventeen times. In a row."

    Amazon / Via

    With these, you'll be able to listen to your fave tunes (or just white noise) for more than 30 hours on a single charge. And with a handy control knob, you can adjust the volume, skip tracks, and even take (or decline) calls on the go.

    Get a pair on Amazon Canada for $96.99+ (available in eight colours).

    12. Exfoliate dead skin, stimulate your circulation, and promote cell turnover with this exfoliating dry brush. It's made of natural boar hair bristles, with an easy-to-use canvas handle that'll have your skin looking brighter and healthier before you know it.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers love how the bristles are firm, but never scratchy. They even said that their skin felt instantly softer. And it even comes with a handy travel bag so you can take it with you on your honeymoon.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $13.88.

    13. Treat yourself to a personalized meditation with this state-of-the-art meditation headband. Using a bunch of sensors, it measures brain activity and customizes nature sounds to fit. A calm mind might result in soft rainfall, while an active mind could cause thunderstorms or roaring waves.

    Amazon / Via

    The headband also connects to the Muse app, so tracking meditations and brain activity is super easy.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $270.50.

    14. Squeeze and squish your frustrations away with this set of stress balls. Each one has a different resistance level for progressive training. They'll help build stronger fingers, hands, and forearms while working out the tension from trying to coordinate hotels for your family.

    The weird egg shape is the perfect shape for hands. They're also great as exercise tools for people with mobility issues!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.99+ (available in three colour sets).

    15. Toss some of these naturally-scented lavender epsom salts into your bath for maximum relaxation. They also help with sore muscles and skin exfoliation, and are even said to aid with sleep.

    @drteals / Via

    They're also great for soaking feet that just off a 12-hour shift of meeting with caterers, bands, and photographers.

    Get a three-pound bag on Amazon Canada for $6.98.

    16. Give your scalp a soothing rub with this waterproof scalp massager. It's like having a tiny, personal, battery-operated masseuse in the shower! The rubber tips gently vibrate to build rich shampoo lather, exfoliate the scalp, and help stimulate hair growth (hello, wedding day up-do's). Plus, it feels sooooooo good!

    Amazon / Via

    I'd get some extra AA batteries here, so that you never run out of juice!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $15.67+ (available in five colours).

    17. Throw on this gel bead eye mask that'll help relieve migraines, and puffy or dry eyes. It can be used hot or cold, and also makes a soothing addition to a nighttime routine. The adjustable strap means you'll always have a perfect fit, too.

    Amazon / Via

    The back has a silky-soft, plush lining that keeps eyes feeling comfy and cozy.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.

    18. Wrap yourself in this weighted blanket that's like receiving a nice, warm hug — but one that lasts forever! Weighted beads are encased in smooth, soft cotton that simulate physical contact for more restful sleep, and deeper relaxation.

    Amazon / Via

    Weighted blankets should always be purchased with the user's weight in mind — to be most effective, a blanket should be between 7-12% of the total body weight. If you're in doubt, or if you're new to weighted blankets, I'd start off with 7%.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $99+ (available in two colours, two sizes, and two weights).

    19. Relieve full-body tension with this percussion massager. It's handheld and cordless, so it can be used on hands, feet, back, legs, or literally anywhere else on the body! Plus, it has five interchangeable heads for a customized, stress-busting experience.

    Amazon / Via

    This electronic masseuse delivers around 3,600 pulses per minute to break up knots, tension, and pain quickly and effectively.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $49.99.

    20. Eliminate tension in your face and neck with this jade roller. The rolling motion of the aventurine stone is also said to help with reducing puffiness, shrinking pores, and absorption of skincare. It doesn't hurt that it looks pretty as heck, too!

    Amazon / Via

    The roller also comes with a gua sha scraping tool (also made of aventurine) that can be used for massaging other parts of the body.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $28.99.

    21. Soothe tired and achy feet with this 3-in-1 foot bath. It bubbles, it vibrates, and it heats the water to a relaxing, comfortable temperature — the only thing it DOESN'T do is require an expensive visit to a spa (or plan your wedding for you)! There are even acupressure nodes and rollers on the bottom to add a massaging element.

    Amazon / Via

    It fits feet up to a men's size 15.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $83.99.

    22. Hydrate and detox with this juicy pomegranate loose leaf white tea that's jammed full of antioxidants and refreshing fruit flavours. It tastes just as good hot as it does iced, and it's also low in caffeine, too, so it won't keep you up at night.

    @davidstea / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $10.98.

    23. Indulge in some dark chocolate with sea salt that'll satisfy your sweet tooth, while also filling you with iron, magnesium, antioxidants, potassium, and a BUNCH of other healthy goodness. Don't @ me, it's science.

    Amazon / Via

    The rich, creamy dark chocolate and crunchy flakes of sea salt are the perfect sweet-salty experience.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $2.93.

    24. And lastly, drown out traffic, snoring, tinnitus, or stressful wedding thoughts with this white noise machine that will emit 24 soothing, sleep-inducing nature sounds. Doesn't that sound nice?

    Amazon / Via

    It even plays pleasant lullabies to rock you off to dreamland, while a gentle nightlight gives just enough visibility to not trip over furniture in the middle of the night.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $49.99.
