Advice for The Morning of Your Wedding

By Published On: October 19, 2023

The morning of your wedding day is a special time filled with anticipation. You’re getting married, after all! And I’m sure you want every moment of this day to be picture-perfect.  

We wanted to curate a piece that is dedicated to this unique moment. It’s easy to read blogs filled with wedding day, reception, and ceremony tips, but that morning before all the craziness may be the most overlooked and important part.  

From self-care to meaningful connections, here are some tips to make the morning of your wedding truly magical.

1. Wake Up Early and Savor the Moment

The morning of your wedding may be a whirlwind, and we always recommend waking up early and giving yourselves some time to soak in the day’s significance. As the sun rises, take a few deep breaths, enjoy a slow cup of coffee or tea, and appreciate the momentous occasion you are about to embark on. Take a moment to reflect on your love story, the journey that led you both to this point and the beautiful future you’ll build together. 

2. Begin the Day with Your Favorite Breakfast

Calories don’t count on your wedding day! Treat yourself and fuel your soul with your favorite breakfast. Consider sharing this meal with your close family and friends. A shared breakfast can be an excellent way to calm nerves and enjoy a quiet moment with your family.

3. Pamper Yourselves with Self-Care

With all the preparations and attention to detail, it’s easy to forget to take care of yourselves. However, self-care is essential on the morning of your wedding. Set aside time for a leisurely shower or bath and indulge in calming activities that bring you peace. Whether it’s yoga, meditation, or a short walk outdoors, these moments of serenity will help center your mind and ease any nervousness before the events begin.  

4. Write Personalized Love Notes

Take a moment on the morning of your wedding to write heartfelt love notes to each other. These notes will serve as a beautiful reminder of your love and commitment as you embark on this new chapter. It will also be the only time in your life you’ll be able to capture and document the feelings of your wedding day in the moment. Exchange the notes before the ceremony or during a private moment afterward, creating a cherished keepsake for years to come.  

5. Surround Yourself with Loved Ones (but only a few!)

Start your morning out with just one or two of your closest loved ones. Go for breakfast with your mom or enjoy tea with your grandma. Then, once it’s time to get ready, bring in those friends and family that mean the most to you before walking down the aisle.

6. Delegate Tasks and Trust Your Vendors

With last-minute tasks and arrangements, the morning of your wedding can be overwhelming. To ease the pressure, delegate tasks to trusted family members or friends who can handle them efficiently. Also, trust your vendors to do their jobs well; remember that you have chosen them for a reason. Allowing others to handle logistical details will give you more time to focus on enjoying the day and being present in the moment. 

7. Breathe and Move Slowly

The wedding day will pass by quickly, and getting caught up in the whirlwind of emotions and activities is easy. Savor each moment as it unfolds, whether it’s the first look, exchanging vows, or sharing your first dance. Being fully present will allow you to experience the joy and love surrounding you on this special day. 

8. Embrace Imperfections and Go with the Flow

As much as you’ve planned and prepared for your wedding, remember that some things may not go exactly as planned. Embrace the imperfections and go with the flow. Focus on the bigger picture—celebrating your love and commitment to one another. Let go of any minor hiccups and cherish the moments of happiness that define the day! Remember, those little hiccups will barely be a memory at the end of the day.
