Inspired by Brides.com, here are certain things engaged couples can do to ease their stress:

1. Eat some carbohydrate-heavy foods: It may sound like a bad advice but here's the thing, even if you've been trying to fit into that dress or suit by losing weight, it means you'll greatly cut down on your carbohydrate intake but according to dietitians, slashing too much can increase your stress level because you'll be doing too many activities. Foods like potatoes and oats will help a lot.
