Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and getting ready to walk down the aisle should be a relaxing and exciting experience. Today we’re sharing a few fun tips for getting ready on your wedding day.
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.
You’ll be selfie ready in no time!
3. Simple Gifts
Wedding prep time is also the perfect time to give your bridesmaids a little thank you gift! Pull together a collection of little trinkets as a way to thank your bridesmaids for standing by your side on your wedding day.
A sentimental card with a piece of jewelry to wear, something sweet to snack on and something that reminds you of her all pulled together in a box is the perfect bridesmaid gift.
Find a quiet moment before ceremony to thank each bridesmaid and give her the gift. Be prepared – the tears may start to flow at this point!
4. Relax and Celebrate
Getting ready should be a relaxing time. Make sure you take some time to chat, reflect and spend so quality time with your bridesmaids. Share some sweets, take a few photos with the photographer and unwind before the big day begins!
5. The Finishing Touches
Once you have your hair and makeup done and you’ve had time to relax, it’s time for the finishing touch – your dress! Have your mom or your bridesmaids help you into your dress, and have your photographer photograph the process. 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! You’ll be glad you took the time to enjoy a few sweet moments with your wedding party.
