So, picture the scene. It’s the morning of your wedding day and you can’t believe the big day has finally arrived. In just a handful of hours you’ll be making your way to the ceremony and walking down the aisle to become a ‘Mrs’. It doesn’t get more exciting (or nerve-wracking) than that, right? That will soon be you so it’s time to listen up, as we’re telling you everything you need to know and do on the morning of your wedding.
The Morning of your Wedding Day
Breath, savour and enjoy. Crack open a bottle of Champagne and soak up every second of the morning. It feels like you’ve been waiting for this moment forever, but it’ll whizz by before you’ve even realised so make sure you enjoy it! Spend the time with your bridesmaids and family reminiscing about the wedding planning journey and get seriously excited for what’s around the corner. Pre-wedding bubbles, giggles and a quick pamper session are exactly what you need to get rid of those nervous jitters! Plus, it’s an incredibly special time to share with your nearest and dearest before the big day continues…
Get organised early on. Prepare all of your underwear, accessories, jewellery and make-up tidily so that you know where everything is and you can avoid any chance of panic. But we always say, wedding planning can be such a stressful time that generally nothing will phase you on the morning of your wedding day!
If you want to be even more organised, why not create a morning of the wedding schedule for you and your bridal party? It’ll be super handy to know when everyone should be waking up, what time your hair and make-up artist will be arriving, who’s getting what done and when, and also so that you know when you need to head to your ceremony. It may sound a little OTT, but it will save everyone asking you what time they need to be everywhere – that will be the last thing you want on the morning of your wedding day!
Waterproof mascara is a must-have for any bride, especially on the morning of your wedding day! The moment you step out in your wedding dress and see the reaction of your dad, mum and bridesmaids is guaranteed to be emotional. We always recommend making sure you ask your photographer to capture this truly magical moment as it’s one you will always want to look back on, and it means you can treasure it long after your special day.
This may sound obvious, but make sure you allocate enough time on the morning of your wedding day to actually put your dress on – it’s not as simple as chucking on a pair of jeans and T-shirt. By allowing extra time, it means there is no rush to put your dress on and it’ll give you a few moments to take it all in. We suggest bringing a bridesmaid or a member of the bridal party along to your final fitting at the boutique so they know how to put on your gown. It can be a big task (and with the extra pre-wedding nerves) so it’s important you know what you’re about to tackle!
The morning of your wedding day will be such a special time for you, it’s the start of your happily ever after…
