Tips for getting ready on the morning of your wedding

Updated: Mar 23

I want to share her some tips for getting ready in a relaxed, panic-free fashion…

Let there be light!

When planning where to get ready, it’s really important to make sure that you book somewhere that has plenty of space near windows/natural light or has make-up stations.

It’s most likely that the biggest window will be taken by the make-up artist, so you don’t want your lovely crew to have to battle for the remaining natural light, if they are doing their own make-up.

Have a Calming Inner Circle

If you're suffer with anxiety, try to only surround yourself with only people who have a calming effect on you.

It could be your mum, your bridal party, or your best friend .

You may have suppliers (hair stylists, makeup artists, the photographer, videographer ) in the room with you while getting ready, so it’s important to choose them carefully and make sure you have a great, natural dynamic with them

Practice putting on the dress

Choose who you want to be in the room when you put on your dress.

Think about who you want to help you into your dress.

It’s often something that isn’t thought about until the last minute, but make sure that person stays with you right up until you’re about to walk down the aisle.

Let that person practice doing up your dress, even if it’s just on the hanger.

Treat Yourself

Make room in your schedule for some pamper time!

Have a warm bath with oils . Light some candles, play some chilled music and take this moment to yourself, to really allow your mind to get ready for the day.

Make-up mistake

If you are doing your own make-up, take care with the SPF.

A lot of foundations come with a SPF in them for daily wear, reflecting and blocking light in order to protect your skin from sun damage.

When using flash photography, the SPF reflects an abnormal amount of light compared to the rest of your body, in particular your neck and shoulders, if you have these on show.

This will lead to pictures where your face looks white, and a completely different colour to the rest of your body.

Practice Mindfulness

If you practice mindfulness, meditation or yoga, carve out some time on the morning of the wedding for it - this is particularly helpful if you have a tendency to feel anxious.

Have Fun!

And last but not least, don’t forget to have fun! This is your wedding day, after all, so enjoy every moment.

Take a deep breath and savor every minute because it will be over before you know it!

Enjoy every second, be happy and relax – everything somehow seems to magically fall into place.
