Make the Most of Your Wedding Day’s First Hours

Your wedding morning is filled with nerves and excitement. You’re gathered with your bride tribe, waiting for the moment when you can slip on your gown and walk to the altar, bouquet in hand. Most bridal parties will agree that the hours leading up to your ceremony are almost sacred! Here are some pointers to make your morning go as smoothly as possible.


“Begin early!”


If your hair and makeup team have several heads and faces to beautify, you should start early in the morning. There is never enough time, and getting everyone ready for the big day always takes longer than we expect. Instead of feeling rushed, take your time and enjoy every moment with your girls.

Trial, trial, and more trial!
Even the most low-key bride should schedule a beauty trial for both hair and makeup. Book the trial and stick with it if you want to be completely transformed or just look like a glowy version of yourself. On the morning of their wedding, many brides are dissatisfied with their beauty results. And, in most cases, there is little time to make changes, making it a stressful experience for everyone.

Don’t skip breakfast.
You know that cousin or auntie who has offered to assist you with your wedding a million times? Put them in charge of the breakfast bar! Most brides are (understandably) anxious on their wedding day, which causes them to lose their appetite. Remember that this is a long, adrenaline-filled day, and you’ll need to eat something! Fruit, yoghurt, granola, hard-boiled eggs, and muffins are all good choices. Also, make sure someone has brought snacks for the time between the ceremony and dinner. Hanger should be avoided at all costs!

Bubbles are required.
Don’t be afraid to sip a mimosa on your wedding day. It’s fun, it makes for great photos, and it takes the edge off if you’re nervous. That being said, don’t overdo it or you’ll be sick or, worse, stumbling down the aisle! Water consumption should be prioritised – a dehydrated bride is an unhappy bride!

Consider your family.
This is a special occasion for your parents. Consider involving them in a simple way, such as dropping by for coffee in the morning or going for a quick walk before breakfast. A lot of brides do a “first-look” with their fathers, which can be special as well.

Make a love letter
A recent trend for couples is to write a heartfelt letter to their soon-to-be spouse on the morning of their wedding. It doesn’t have to be long; just a few sentences explaining why you love them or how excited you are to marry them on that very day! It’s a wonderful keepsake to have on hand for each anniversary.
