“You don’t marry the person you can live with—you marry the person you can’t live without”. -unknown

The time leading up to the wedding day entails so many details, stress, planning, meetings, sample appointments, rehearsals and the list could go on. It is only reasonable for brides to become exhausted and have low energy levels by the time of the wedding. Does that sound like you? Worry not! Here are some top tips from our brides with advice on what to do the morning of the big day in order to look and feel at your best on your big day!

1. First comes coffee

The wedding day will fly by – from your early morning preparations to your first look to the time of the ceremony. It is vital that you nourish yourself well and definitely have a cup or two of coffee to get that energy boost! We all know champagne will follow shortly after, so, in the beginning let’s just focus on feeling satiated and ready to seize the day!

2. Planning is a girl’s best friend

Yes, time and time again we admit it: it is all about planning. It is about having a schedule that is clearly communicated to your bridal party, your family, your guests and anyone who may start asking questions like when are the guys coming, what time are we leaving, when is my hair appointment etc. and disrupting your flow. Extra tip: print a few schedules and tape them outside of preparation rooms so that everyone can refer to them if need be.

3. Music makes the world go round

What better way to set the mood and get the vibe going all day than having mood boost, energizer playlists in your dressing room? Make sure you have loud wireless speakers that last all day and have a sing or two with your crew. We guarantee the fun won’t stop and you will definitely look and feel at your best on your bug day!

4. Thread and needle

Classic, right? Yet not everyone thinks of it. Mistakes or last minute alterations can happen. Put your mind at ease and have a mini sewing kit ready in the room in case there are any buttons that need last minute tidy up or a few pearls to sew back up. And smile, no one will know!

5. Keep a memoir of the day

Allocate sometime for yourself and yourself alone to think through your day, and all the moments that led you there. Our suggestion is to make a short note in your bridal notebook, take a selfie and capture all the things that made you happy on the day. Or make a mini video of yourself stating how you feel and what you are most looking forward to in your new life chapter. We can assure you this will be among the top souvernirs of the day!

These are our top five tips for you to look and feel at your best on your wedding day! Take it from the real brides, and make sure your wedding day is about you and the love of your life. Make sure you energize yourself, have a laugh with your crew, allocate time for yourself and listen to the best music that will keep that smile and vibe bright for the long hours!
