As a wedding videographer I have been fortunate to have been part of so many wedding morning preparations throughout Tipperary, Kilkenny and up and down the country, each wedding is special and unique for every individual bride. I have picked up some tips, advice and ideas that will help to ensure that your wedding morning is a stress free fun event.
More often than not, the morning of any wedding can be a blur when we look back at it, running to the hairdressers, dressing the flower girls, making sure everyone is where they should be, checking in with suppliers, dealing with last minute arrivals… the list goes on!
In more recent times, we are seeing brides and grooms taking a more relaxed approach and striving to get all the last minute preparations completed the day before the wedding where possible, so they can enjoy the morning build-up and everything that goes with it.
It is with this in mind that we have compiled a list of novel ideas for you and your bride or groom to enjoy on the morning of your wedding. It goes without saying, that if you’re a traditionalist, you won’t be doing these activities together, but you can certainly enjoy them with your bridal party, family or grooms party.
Instead of running all over town to get to the hairdressers or to visit your favourite makeup artist, why not bring them to your home or venue of choice? By asking your makeup artist and hairdresser to work their wonders in comfortable surroundings, you can enjoy being pampered with your bridal party in a relaxed atmosphere, and will never have to worry about dodging those raindrops!
Splash out on a champagne breakfast
Let’s be honest, there’s not a bride or groom on the planet that won’t enjoy a special breakfast on the morning of the wedding. Perhaps ask an ouside caterer to prepare something light and nourishing for you and your companions or maybe call upon an obliging relative to put together something special. Not too much champagne now, you have a long day ahead ?
Get everything ready the night before
If you truly want to be as relaxed as possible on the morning of your wedding, why not get everything ready the night before? Have all the dresses, or suits ready and waiting to be worn, polish those shoes, lay out any jewellery, make those last minute phone calls, pack your overnight bag, do a quick tidy up so the photographer can get snapping as soon as they arrive, and then breathe and relax….it’s all in hand. Now you can take the morning in your stride, no rushing about, and arrive at your wedding ceremony rested and calm.
Pop on some music
There’s nothing that can soothe the nerves or add to an occasion like your favourite tunes. Perhaps consider preparing a playlist for your intended to listen to on the morning of the wedding, what better way to start the day?
On the morning of the wedding, before you don your suit or dress, it will do you the world of good to be as comfortable as you can. Invest in some comfy robes for the bride and bridal party and some man-size slippers or robes for the gents.
