According to a Zola survey, 96% of newly engaged brides go through a ton of stress before getting married. If you’re recently engaged, first off—congratulations! Secondly, you are probably part of the 96% and understand exactly why so many people are freaking out about their big day.
Getting married is a life-changing event, and for some, it’s their dream come true. For others, it’s still likely the happiest day of their lives, but with a dash of stress and anxiety added to the mix. Wedding planning is widely considered to be one of the most stressful events of a person’s life—you have to make this major life transition, seamlessly involve all the most important people in your life, and spend loads of money, all while being expected to have a smile on your face.
But you already know all of this. In fact, you might even be experiencing it, and that’s precisely why you need The Bridal Retreat.
The Bridal Retreat is a luxury retreat for newly engaged brides-to-be. It’s more than a place or an event—it’s a chance for you to take a step back from all the stress, disengage, and breathe. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience you won’t find anywhere else, where wedding planning marries wellness.
Founded by Kristin Sullivan, The Bridal Retreat shows newly engaged brides how to successfully experience happy and stress-free wedding planning. The Bridal Retreat isn’t a bachelorette party (although you’ll have loads of fun!), but a labor of love to make sure that every bride walks into her wedding not only prepared but most importantly, absolutely excited to meet her life to come.
What sets The Bridal Retreat apart is that it focuses on holistic wellness. You’re not just walking into a retreat to escape—what you learn and experience at The Bridal Retreat goes beyond wedding planning, and you’ll carry it with you into your new life.
