If you want to make a bit of a fuss over the bride or bridesmaids on the morning of the wedding, these fun little things will certainly start the day in the right way.
It’s so easy for the first few hours of your wedding day to fly by without even noticing. Hell, the whole wedding can swish past you if you’re not careful! And before you know it, you’re off on your honeymoon. That is why it’s important to really shine a light on your wedding morning, and give it the focus it deserves. Because if you appreciate those fleeting moments with your bridesmaids whilst getting ready, you’ll better appreciate the rest of the day.
On the morning of your wedding, do you really want to be spending that precious time working through checklists and anxiously watching the clock? Getting ready with your bridesmaids should be as memorable as the main event and filled with laughter, prosecco (not too much) and sharing stories.
Here are 7 fun things to do on your wedding morning with your bridesmaids.
Prepare coordinated ‘get ready’ robes for your bridal party
We think it’s so fun when a bride and her bridesmaids have coordinating pyjamas or robes to get ready in! It makes everyone feel like even more of a squad, and it looks great in the wedding photos. Robes also won’t spoil your hair and makeup when it’s time to change into your bridesmaids dresses.
Plan a Sleepover
Is there any better way to spend the last night of your single life, than sharing a few laughs over a cheeky bottle of wine with your mates? Book somewhere to stay with your bridesmaids before the wedding, so you have plenty of time to catch up and relax. This is equally a good time to pamper and do any beauty treatments you and the bridal party feel like doing.
Co-create a Playlist
It’s not a real party without a killer playlist. Pumping the tunes you all love during wedding prep will create a great atmosphere and get everyone in a celebratory mood! Create a group playlist on Spotify, and together you’ll guarantee all bridesmaids will be happy, and free from pre-wedding nerves.
Eat a Wedding Morning Meal
On the morning of your wedding, you might not feel like eating much, but it’s vital you do eat something! Sit down together for a healthy breakfast and set up a grazing station to keep everyone’s energy levels up throughout your time together.
Capture the moment
Wedding morning selfies with your bridesmaids are always so sweet to look back on. But don’t forget to allow time for professional photos too! Your hair, makeup, and flowers will all be at their best at the start of the day, so plan for some bridal party portraits with your photographer before you hit the aisle.
Decorate the space
Why not bring some fun little details to your wedding morning! Big balloons, decorations and even flower arrangements can bring some cheer to an otherwise average room. And, it’ll make your bridal party feel appreciated and loved.
A First Look with Your Bridesmaids
If you’re doing the whole first look thing with your partner, why not do it with your bridesmaids! This wedding day is a big deal for your closest friends too, so it makes sense that you would want to have a special moment with them. Be sure to have your photographer on standby to catch their reaction, and you’ll capture a precious memory that each of you will love long after the big day.
