Morning of the Wedding

Little touches and details will make the morning of the wedding more memorable for yourself and your bridal party. Here are a few suggestions we think will help.

1. Details.

Details, details, details. You’ve been so used to this throughout your wedding planning, so don’t stop when planning the morning of the wedding! Sweet little touches will make it more memorable. Here’s a mini-inspiration board to nudge your creativity:

1 – white paper lanterns | blue paper lanterns
2 – banner
3 – drink dispenser
4 – striped straws
5 – door hanger
6 – plastic drinking glasses
7 – tote bag

2. Schedule your hair and makeup early.

Make sure your hair stylist and makeup artist are scheduled well ahead of time. And, make sure the appointment is as early as possible. This allows for any extra time it may take to get your hairstyle just right, or to redo anything that doesn’t come out perfect the first time. Plus, you’ll be less stressed and can relax if you know you have more than enough time to get to the aisle on time.

3. Have food and drinks available.

This is sometimes something we recommend as one of the MOH duties, but it bears repeating here. You’ll want to offer food and drinks to your wedding party the morning of the wedding. Nothing too fancy or complicated: orange juice, coffee, mimosas, and/or water are some suggestions. Use a drink dispenser and plastic glassware for ease. For food, think small finger-foods like rolled sandwiches, veggies, or fruit. Drinking straws make for no-mess lipstick.

4. Make sure these photos are on your list.

5. Wear comfortable clothing.

While getting ready, wear clothing that won’t mess up your hair or makeup. The best advice? Wear a button-down shirt or robe that doesn’t need to be lifted above your head.

    I definitely would recommend the getting ready EARLY. I was too excited to sleep in anyway! My wedding wasn’t until 2pm, but I had my hair appointment start at 7am, which was the first slot, before my bridesmaids. It helped that we decided to get ready at my parents’ house. I slept in my bed and it was so much more relaxed that way. And my dad picked up the donuts and kolaches for everyone! We also did cute embroidered robes! I gave them way as bridesmaids gifts. :)

  • Jordan Hoehler

    I adore the father of the bride hankerchiefs! So sweet

  • Christina

    When booking your makeup artist and hair stylist, be sure to factor in whether you want first-look photos. To be ready for a 4pm wedding, we didn’t realize that we needed to start makeup around 8am for the brides and 4 bridesmaids. By the time we realized our mistake, the makeup artist had booked an early-morning client and wasn’t available until 9am. We made it work but lost the opportunity for getting ready photos with all of the bridesmaids finished hair and makeup.

  • Casey Barreto

    I would die! I love the idea of having everyone in robes getting ready. This is definitely on my must do list. Loving the monogrammed spa robes.
