You’re not alone. Every to-be-wed comes to at least one moment of complete overwhelm as they prepare for the big day.

Thankfully, that means we all have some collective wisdom to share. Here’s the #1 tip I’ve learned over the years: Listen to music every day. Turns out music can both de-stress and help you achieve some of your goals! Here are three ways music will rock your wedding-planning world:

1. Get Moving! Put on some headphones and Dance. Walk. Jog. Hike. Do what you do best! Bonus: You’ll be getting fit for your wedding/honeymoon in the most fun way.

3. Play Music While You Plan. So many music apps have curated playlists for all kinds of moods, so find one you like and crank it up. Bonus: Here you can listen to millions of songs just about anywhere and when you hear a song you love, just add it to your wedding reception playlist!

    My favorite thing to do while listening to music is dance and laugh with my grandchildren. Music is the best thing to introduce them to and dancing helps coordination and musicality! Instruments are next, but only the kind they can dance with while playing!

    These are perfect for listening to music as I fall asleep! Would not have to hear hubby’s snoring. But even better for my Breast Cancer surgery coming up, I wouldn’t bother anyone at the hospital with my music and it would help ease the pain.

    Always playing during the daily workouts and on the way to work. These headphones would make a huge difference compared to the basic earbuds I currently use!!!!!

    Music is what brings my fiance to life. So we often break into song for no reason. We also often create our own songs out of just about anything. (We have a song just for bananas) But we love to play music whenever we’re cleaning the house or working on projects together. Often breaking into dance breaks to keep the momentum going. We also own a business together so we usually have headphones on since we have different tastes in “work-mode tunes”. This would be a GREAT bonus.

    Music is an inspiration to all young & old. We listen to all types of different music for variety is the spice of life in our home. My son is a musician & every time I hear him sing it sends so many emotions thru me. I would love to give him a good pair of headphones to use!! Thank You!!!

    My favourite thing to do with music is make some excellent coffee, put on the tunes and enjoy a Sunday morning, particularly if I danc around the kitchen. Without music, I doubt we’d have dance and I couldn’t live without dancing 🙂

  7. Deanna Rizziello September 22, 2016 @ 9:55 pm

    Music is a source of relaxation and brings calmness to my day. At the end of the day on my way home from work I like to listen to some music to unwind from the long stressful day. No matter what mood I’m in, happy, sad, stressed; music brings positivity to that moment. I also enjoy tuning into my music while I’m at the gym exercising. The music flowing gets the adrenaline going to help me complete the best possible workout.

  8. Tina M September 23, 2016 @ 3:58 am

    love to clean with music and love to workout with music. It makes it be not so boring

  9. nicole September 23, 2016 @ 4:58 am

    clean my house

  10. Lynn September 23, 2016 @ 8:46 am

    My favorite thing to do while listening to music would be a toss up between cleaning, cooking or just plain old booty shaking.

  11. Gaylene September 23, 2016 @ 11:02 pm

    My honest-to-gawd favorite thing to do with music is to just LISTEN to it in my music room. As a teen I would put on an album and listen to every song: every lyric, every guitar riff, every bass line, every drum beat. Nowadays it seems I’m always DOING something with my music playing in the background, like driving or cleaning, or some other mundane task or chore. One o’these days, I will just kick back and LISTEN to every part of a song on an album again.

  12. Cassie September 30, 2016 @ 1:31 pm

    My favorite thing to do while listening to music is run! Always have my headphones on and jamming out!!!

  13. Bobby September 30, 2016 @ 1:34 pm

    My favorite thing to do is clean while jamming out!!!

  14. Valerie September 30, 2016 @ 1:36 pm

    Music makes my world go ’round. I listen while I’m working, working out, any all the time. Music keeps me going. I’ll turn on a little gospel when I’m stressed or classics when I’m ready to dance.

  15. Amanda September 30, 2016 @ 1:41 pm

    By far my favorite thing to do while listening to music is working out. It helps de-stress and the music gets me to really focus and have a great workout!

  16. Kevin September 30, 2016 @ 1:46 pm

    My favorite thing to do with music is teach it! Growing up in my school’s band program molded me into a responsible, hardworking, driven person. I decided to become a music educator so that I could help provide the same experiences and opportunities for high school students.

  17. Joyce September 30, 2016 @ 1:50 pm

    I love to listen to music while working out and while I’m making wedding decorations. Our whole wedding is diy so music helps put me in a crafting mood!

  18. Kathryn September 30, 2016 @ 1:58 pm

    Exercise! It seems running without music these days is so hard!

  19. Ashley September 30, 2016 @ 1:58 pm

    Wedding planning is stressful, but it’s much easier to do in a clean house. I like to put on head phones and listen to music while I clean up. Then I feel ready to tackle anything.

  20. Samantha September 30, 2016 @ 2:10 pm

    When I’m feeling overwhelmed , I love too sing at the top of my lungs and dance around the house! I ways feel calm, cool and relaxed afterwards! Would love to be able to do this on my wedding day with a set of beats solo2!

  21. christina greco September 30, 2016 @ 2:43 pm

    I use music for everything. Getting moving in the morning, getting in the right mood for something, going to sleep at night. Music allows me to get myself in the right mental and emotional state for whatever my day throws at me.

  22. Deborah Soon-to-be Mrs. Cole September 30, 2016 @ 3:03 pm

    My favorite thing to do listening to music is sweating for the wedding with my fiancé. He is the sexiest man I have ever seen. We train together and go hard and we go even harder when we have those good jams playing. I’m hoping to be one buff bride

  23. Shain Toth September 30, 2016 @ 3:25 pm

    My favorite thing to do with music is actually to share it. Music is about making a human connection, whether from the artist to the listener,or from one person to another, music is all about connecting people. I love sharing music that reminds me of people with them. It’s like giving a small piece of your soul to them.

  24. Billie September 30, 2016 @ 3:39 pm

    As a professional musician, I love being able to express myself in performance. For entertainment, I love dancing to jazz standards and pop hits.

  25. samantha p September 30, 2016 @ 3:57 pm

    Music is the most relaxing thing for me. It doesn’t matter if I am trying to clean, do my homework, or catch some Zzz’s, music is what helps me relax to do it! But of course, my favorite time to jam to music is in the shower 🙂

  26. S Forbes September 30, 2016 @ 4:11 pm

    Love to cook dinner to great music!

  27. Melissa September 30, 2016 @ 4:33 pm

    I love to listen to music while quilting in my sewing room, cleaning house, cooking, driving, and as you listed, taking baths or showers! I love music! I too agree it is very therapeutic! Thank you for the chance to win these headphones! How fun! 🤗

  28. Sue G. September 30, 2016 @ 4:39 pm

    I borrow my daughters Beats and sit by hubby to be while he’s watching “his” TV show/sports and while listening to music I pay bills, read, email, Facebook and do online research/shopping for wedding items!

  29. Liliana September 30, 2016 @ 5:15 pm

    I love listening to music when making crafts and handmade invitations. Now I relax listening to my favorite songs while finishing my diy wedding crafts!

  30. Tami Turner September 30, 2016 @ 7:19 pm

    I listen to music in the morning while I’m getting ready for work. Then on my way to work and at work as well. 😊

  31. Heather September 30, 2016 @ 10:57 pm

    My man and I like to rock out along with our music. I sing and he plays guitar! #rockstars

  32. Cindy C October 1, 2016 @ 1:00 pm

    My husband to be and I met through music. First, through gospel at Glide Memorial, then through the parties he held with all his musician friends (he’s a lifelong drummer) and finally, as members in the same bands (I am a singer). Our favorite thing to do now is to have that rare weekend night where we put on our old vinyl records and dance. We’re ready for that first dance!

  33. Linda OConnor October 3, 2016 @ 4:09 am

    I love listening to music when I’m going for a long drive. It’s a great time to relax and get away from the details of wedding planning for a while. Only 18 days until I say I do!

  34. Tiffany October 3, 2016 @ 8:40 am

    My soon-to-be Hubby and our 18 month old put on music and dance around the house. She laughs so much! When we get tired we fall over each other on the floor and just laugh and cuddle with each other. Family time is the best way to show love! Couldn’t live without music!

  35. Kelsey Simon October 4, 2016 @ 12:46 pm

    My fiance and I love to sing together in the car. Sometimes we harmonize, must mostly we just scream and laugh at ourselves. We’ve been together for almost ten years and we still do it on every road trip.

  36. Toni S Trotter October 4, 2016 @ 2:28 pm

    My favorite thing to do while cleaning in the house or even outside is listen to music!!! Depending on my mood it could be Motown Radio or 90’s Hip Hop, my two faves.

  37. May Lynn Mahler October 4, 2016 @ 7:54 pm

    My favorite thing to do with music, is sing along and hopefully not fall down like that poor lady- ouch! Hopefully she is a fully trained stunt woman?? #PraiseandWorship #SingToTheLordANewSong

  38. Justin Hogue October 5, 2016 @ 8:33 pm

    My fiance and I enjoy making playlists for one another to listen to during various activities. Not surprisingly, the “House Cleaning” or “Cooking” playlists have become the most utilized and added a therapeutic layer of fun to what would otherwise be work. Nothing wrong with sharing an impromptu dance party before returning to give whatever is in the pan a toss.

  39. Val October 6, 2016 @ 1:22 pm

    I love music. My favorite things to do with music are to jam out to it! I jam out while in my car going for a cruise, when I’m cleaning up a storm in the house, and I embrace the beats when I’m working out in my workout class! It soothes my soul and gives me energy! Love it!

  40. lissie October 7, 2016 @ 8:18 pm

    I listen to music in the gym and on my way to work! It gets me in a great mood to start the day 🙂

  41. Heather Taylor October 11, 2016 @ 9:17 pm

    Make music. My now-husband and I are both musicians and would love these to creat more!


  42. Melanie October 12, 2016 @ 8:05 am

    My favorite thing to do with music is take a walk around the neighborhood while listening. No matter what mood I’m in, there’s always a genre or playlist that makes me feel good!

  43. Daniel Shipman October 13, 2016 @ 8:35 am

    My favorite thing to do with music is head to the gym and get a good workout in. I like fast tempo, high energy mixes that keep my focus and concentration up!

  44. Brandi October 14, 2016 @ 2:37 am

    My favorite thing to do when listening to music is cleaning my house. I feel that it helps me clean more efficient.

  45. samantha mariscal October 14, 2016 @ 12:53 pm

    I listen to music to distress from my newborn baby. I listen to music when we go on walks and in the car. It helps me relax and talk to myself when I’m alone with the baby. I listen to music for basically everything when I’m home cooking or cleaning.
