So, the saying goes “you’ve made your bed, now lie in it,” and it’s not a really happy sentiment. Essentially, it means what’s done is done, if you messed something up along the way ((in whatever you were doing)), then you kind of just have to deal with it. Harsh, but makes sense. Well, we’ve decided to take it more literally, and lift it up with a more positive underlying connotation, with the help of Under the Canopy, the most sustainable home brand on the market ((oof, when we say it, we get such clean, refreshed, help-the-Earth committed feelings)). The challenge: before you get married, make sure the bed you’ll be sleeping in together, from here on out, is totally and completely dreamy. Pretty, comfortable, and never-want-to-get-out-of-it-unless-adulting-makes-it-absolutely-necessary level luxurious. If you go with Under the Canopy, we can guarantee that dreaminess for years and years, basically, forever, to come!
Before we map out our thoughts on the perfect bed, let’s first consider why having a blissful place to rest your heads is so darn important. Especially when you’ve just gotten married.
It’s your place to reset.
Life doesn’t slow down after your wedding, in fact, it probably gets even faster. You’re back from your honeymoon, you’re back to work, and yes, you’re doing life with another person ((which is great #teameffort)), but that doesn’t mean that every day is still going to be peaches and cream. That’s why it’s a really special thing to be able to come home from a hard day, take a shower, pour some wine, and have a sleepover with the person you’ll be snuggling with for the rest of your life. A relaxing, happy-dream-heavy night’s sleep definitely does the trick to reset your flow. Preferably sleep preceded by Netflix and a little late-night snacking.
It’s your place to turn off the angry feels.
You probably got a lot of advice once you got engaged - best wishes and marriage 101 from family and friends, and we’re sure you heard somewhere along the way “never go to bed angry.” It’s good advice, don’t get us wrong, but it’s a lot easier said than done. We’re all guilty of it, too: turning out the lights, refusing a kiss, rolling over and going to bed without resolving the argument with our S.O. The withholding feels good in the moment, but let’s be honest, closing our eyes and drifting off to dreamland - all while holding a grudge - it never ends well. That’s why tapping your spouse’s shoulder, talking things out, and coming to an understanding or truce is just such a relief.
It’s your place to connect.
And no, we’re not just alluding to some feats between the sheets; that being said, makeup make out sessions are a surefire way to get those endorphins firing and put those angry, antagonistic feels to bed. No, but really, your bed should be a safe space, a place where you and your partner can come together, discuss your days, contemplate big decisions together, and remember all the reasons why you are doing this whole life thing side by side. Maybe one of you is sick and needs some extra TLC from your other half, maybe one of you has too much on your mind and is in desperate need of a massage, or maybe you both just need to get some lovin’ and then binge on breakfast in bed. Followed by round 2 😉.
This is big stuff, guys, stuff that can and should only happen in the comfort of the coziest, dreamiest bed ever. And Under the Canopy has that covered…
From the mattress to the way it’s dressed, a bed from Under the Canopy is easily the perfect way to start and end your day, especially since you’ll be doing it for the long haul #saidyestoforever.
Made with individually-encased recycled steel springs and organic latex, UTC’s mattress offers the perfect amount of comfort and support for all sleeping positions.
It’s designed for limited motion transfer ((that means you won’t be waking up your partner in the middle of the night 🙌🙌🙌)).
No harmful chemicals so you can rest easy and get an exceptional night’s sleep.
And cozy organic cotton blankets add a nice splash of color and a total #mood to your master suite.
Oh! And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that hybrid & natural cooling part of the mattress. Crafted for long-lasting comfort, each layer and coil is made to allow natural airflow to help keep you cool at night. You can say goodbye to all that mid-slumber sheet dancing ((you know what we’re talking about, the one where one of you is hot and the other is cold, and you’re either shivering and stealing covers or abandoning ALL of the stuff on top all night long)), and you’ll probably never wake up on the wrong side of the bed again.
For us, that does the mostttt for longevity and pure marital bliss…
