Essential tips for the morning of your big day
Don’t forget to eat
With all of the emotions you are feeling, there’s a big possibility you won’t have much of an appetite in the morning. Despite this, it really is important to make sure that you have a substantial breakfast that will get you through the day. Try not to eat anything too heavy to make sure you won’t feel uncomfortable, but also enough food that you won’t be toppling over as you walk down the aisle. Something with fresh fruit, natural yoghurt, and granola can be a good option. It’s light but also filling, without being something that is going to make you feel unwell or bloated when you are already a mixed bag of emotions.
Give yourself enough time to get ready
Getting ready for your wedding actually becomes part of the celebration! The mood created while getting ready will really set the tone for the day, so you don’t want to be stressed out thinking about how little time you have to get ready. One of the most time-consuming parts of your morning will be having your hair and make-up done, so make sure you time how long those take during the trials so you know how long to allocate for both of these. As well as this, you can double-check how your hair and skin should be prepped before they arrive so you can save some time the morning of.
Lay your dress and accessories out
To make sure you have everything prepared, have your dress hanging up with your shoes and accessories laid out as well. You want to make sure that everything is ready the night before to reduce some of your anxiety the morning of. You will have had wedding dress alterations, so you know your dress will fit perfectly when you put your gown on. If you have them laid out neatly, these can make for a great wedding photography shot that can be taken while you are getting ready. It also means that everything is ready for you to slip into when your hair and makeup are complete, so you are ready to go with no last-minute panic.
The most important thing to remember is that your wedding is time to celebrate, and you want to do everything you can to make the day as stress-free as possible. Preparing little details like this can take a lot of the anxiety out of the day, and just make things run smoother.
