1. Sweet Bites and Sparkling Drinks

Getting ready should be a celebration in itself! Plan on bringing some sweet bites to eat and something sparkly to sip on as you pamper yourself for the ceremony. Why not have a little celebratory cake before the ceremony? A mini cake to share with your bridesmaids is the perfect way to kick off the festivities.

Macaroons that match your wedding colors are an adorable little treat that is light and perfect for snacking on while you get ready. Pair them with Moscato or champagne and you have a snack that is festive and fun. Another benefit to having pretty sweets while getting ready – they’re perfect little photo props!

2. Pamper Yourself

On your wedding day, you want you and your bridesmaids to look your best. Hire a hair and makeup team to come to you and style your hair and apply the perfect shade of lipstick on your wedding party. Bring one or two people in to do each task and your bridesmaids and you will look more stunning than ever.

These photos will be keepsakes that you’ll look back on and treasure of your wedding day. Make sure to relax a little and have fun while you’re getting ready to walk down the aisle!
