How to plan for your wedding morning

The morning of your wedding is a special time; the day which you’ve been dreaming about and planning, perhaps for years, has finally arrived, and you’re bound to be feeling more than a little emotional. Deciding on how to spend this time will be important, as you try to juggle the nerves, excitement, and maybe worry.

Think about where you want to be, what you want to do, and who you want around you. It may be that you’ll choose to stay at the venue the night before if you’re getting married in a hotel – will you want your maid of honour to stay overnight with you, or would you rather spend the time alone for some quiet reflection? Or perhaps you’ll choose to stay the night before at your parents’ house, in which case you’ll likely be surrounded by a whole host of family and friends in the morning.

Hair and make-up are bound to dominate your thoughts, but before then you should have some time on your hands to relax, take some time to breathe, and share this special day with loved ones. Today is not the day to skip breakfast – it’s likely to be a long time before any wedding meal, and you’ll need to keep your energy levels high. Consider what you are going to wear – once you do get started on hair and make-up you won’t want to be pulling a t-shirt or jumper over your head, so choose a zip-up or a dressing gown.

Try and be fully prepared in the morning, without any last minute chores or phone calls to take care of. The wedding morning is the start of your big day; some might say that it’s the start of the rest of your life! That’s why it is important to have a smooth, relaxing and enjoyable wedding morning.
