Essentials for Getting Ready on Your Wedding Day

On the morning of your wedding, your mind will be racing, and you will be full of excitement and nerves. The more prepared you are, and the more duties that have been given out, the better. By taking these steps to prepare, your day will be a lot more relaxing, and run a lot smoother.

  1. Relax, take a deep breath, take your time, and enjoy the entire wedding day. Don’t rush anything! It’s not every day you get married! However, prepare yourself to wake up early. Go to bed early the night before the wedding because sleep is needed for the long day ahead of you! Have an organized plan ready for morning when you wake up. This will keep you from being stressed out right off the bat.
  2. Eat small meals every few hours, and nothing heavy or fried, or anything with garlic in it.  You don’t want to over-eat, but it’s important that you DO eat. The last thing you want is to feel bloated. With the adrenaline of the big day, many brides forget to eat. It will be a long day, and more than likely you won’t eat at your wedding, until afterwards. The last thing you want to do is faint at the altar, especially if you’re also having an outdoor ceremony or reception and are dabbling in the unpredictable Houston weather.
  3. If you are a coffee drinker, limit yourself to 1 or 2 cups. You’ll get your caffeine fix from this, but you won’t get extra jitters. If your wedding is in the peak of Houston summer, try an iced coffee instead of a usual hot so getting overheated is not something you have to add to your list of worries.
  4. Have an emergency kit prepared, or make sure your wedding planner has one with her.  The number one emergency item that needs to be packed is a small sewing kit. You NEVER know if your zipper might give out. Ask the bridesmaid to pack extra shoes, super glue (for heel breaks), handy-wipes, lip gloss, antacid, breath mints, extra make-up, hairspray, and water. Be sure someone has a complete list of wedding vendors, and their phone numbers are available on hand… just in case.
  5. Have plenty of tissues, and makeup on hand from a full day of tears and laughter.
  6. Packing your bags for the honeymoon, confirming hotel reservations and airline reservations, having your license and documentation in order, and preparing payment/tip envelopes for your wedding vendors are tasks that can be completed in the days prior to your wedding.7. Have FUN and enjoy your day! We believe that every wedding is magical and Houston weddings are some of the best (although we may be biased)!
