The morning of your wedding can feel like the most hectic part of the day when it’s supposed to be relaxing. Here are some tips for a smooth morning that will set your mind and body up for a great day.
Order breakfast and/or lunch, depending on your ceremony time. When stress is on the mind, it’s common for brides and grooms to say “I don’t have time,” or “I’m not hungry.” But with a full tummy, you’ll be able to enjoy the day, curb some jitters, and last through a day of drinking.
Don’t forget about water! Lots of bridal suites are filled with champagne, bourbon, white wine, etc., and that’s great. There’s so much to celebrate! However, not only is dry mouth terrible for photos, fainting down the aisle would be even worse. Joking aside, drinking water is an important daily habit, but even more so when you’re chasing every beautiful moment during the day with booze.
Print a copy of the timeline and frame it for each wedding suite. It will eliminate a million questions for the guests of honor, and creates more excitement when everyone can see what’s coming.
If you don’t have a wedding planner, you’ll want to make your own “day of kit” for last minute emergencies. At minimum, you should have a handheld steamer, bobby pins, hairspray, safety pins, tissues, stain remover, scissors, and travel sewing kit. steamer, tissues, stain remover, and a sewing kit at minimum.
Make sure you’ve dedicated enough time to get dressed. This should already be built into your timeline, so make sure someone is keeping an eye on the clock to ensure your HMU artists are done on time and you can take your time getting into your attire.
Lastly, make sure everyone has their personal belongings together and organized as the morning wraps up. This not only eliminates chaos at the end of the night or next morning, but some venue bridal suites require you to take everything at the end of the reception. I promise you’ll be happier if you deal with it at 11:00 am as opposed to 11:00 pm.
