LET THE

PLANNING BEGIN!

Ease into your wedding day with zero stress.

I’ve been to countless weddings and I’ve witnessed first hand how the whole process of getting ready on the morning of your wedding can potentially be rather stressful. There's such a build up leading to your special day. Before you know it, you're waking up on your wedding day excited and nervous. There are people coming and going, there's a timeline to stick to, and when combined with all your emotions on the day, it's easy to become overwhelmed. To help you prepare for your wedding day and make it as easy-going, relaxing and fun as possible, I've put together some tips - JUST FOR YOU.


Remember to soak in all the moments!


Bride's Details

On your wedding day!


Hang Up your Dress and have your Accessories ready


* Jewellery & Earrings

* Perfume

* Wedding Rings

* Shoes (don't forget those pesky stickers on the soles!)

* Wedding Dress (An elegant hanger goes a long way in showing off your expensive dress)

* Veil

* Wedding Stationary (Invitations etc)

* Bouquet


Don’t forget to remove the labels off all your pretty new things!


A small clutch with essentials (lipstick, mints, rescue remedy, safety pins etc) is always a good idea too.

Stay Hydrated


Have a good breakfast, drink plenty of water and have some snacks, it will be a long day on your feet!

Get dressed close to the venue


A shorter drive will mean less travel time, traffic and less stressful should you run late.

Free the dressing room from clutter

Food, clothes, undies and bags can be rather distracting, try and have these hidden or moved out of sight.

Make-up & Hair


Choose your suppliers carefully, I can’t stress how important it is to use reliable professionals. Also consider having a trial run beforehand to avoid disappointment on the day.

* To ensure you are not late for your ceremony, request that your make-up and hair be done first.

Bridesmaids


Ensure they are all dressed and ready to go. Having your bridal party looking their best, whilst helping you into your dream dress, always makes for beautiful photographs.

Getting into your dress


This process and putting your accessories on may take more time than you think, At your last fitting, time how long it takes to get into your dress. The last thing you want is the added stress of feeling uncomfortable!

Go All Out!


Pack Some Pretty Prep Attire - you’ll feel fabulous and you won't be worried about having your picture taken in your usual scruffy pyjamas!


Hit Play on Some Sweet Sounds - Prepare a playlist of your favourite songs to listen to and pack a set of portable speakers in your overnight bag if you’re not getting ready at home.


Get the Celebrations Started - Pop some bubbly and have a toast with your bridal party!
