5 Important Tips To Help A Bride Get Ready On Her Wedding Day

Every Bride clearly has an idea of what she wants her day to look like, but putting those ideas together and planning it could be an overwhelming task, but below are 5 tips to help put all those awesome plans to fruition.
1. The bridal gown needs a large space to hang, and some to receive fresh air before the bride will put it on: The dress shouldn’t stay in the bag all morning. It’s kind of like a bottle of wine in that it needs time to breathe — especially if there’s a train on it — to allow for the fabric to settle and any small wrinkles to work themselves out. Hang your dress in a pretty spot that will give your photographer a chance to snap a few photos of your pretty wedding dress.
2. Timelines are key — especially if you don’t have a wedding planner. Some brides cut costs by hiring one hair stylist and one makeup artist. If you do this, you need to plan accordingly time-wise. If you try to cram it all in using only one person, you can really throw off your schedule. And, if you do start to run behind it really helps to have a wedding coordinator. When you go to put your day-of timeline together, keep these guidelines in mind.
3.  Your getting-ready space needs lots of room and natural light. The best rooms to get ready in must be a room large enough for all your bridesmaids, hair and makeup artists, family members, photographers, and anyone else who might decide to drop by. And don’t overlook the importance of a room with great natural light. Your photographer and makeup artist will thank you.
4. Pack an emergency kit: Have an emergency kit at the ready to solve any potential problems. This bride’s day-of bag includes scissors, mints, Listerine, hairpins, safety pin and a pair of sandals (the same height as her bridal Jimmy Choo’s), and a pain relief in case the day’s activities become tedious.

5. Don’t worry about what your groom and his entourage are doing: While the bride and her entourage are busy getting ready, the groom and his might just be busy watching soccer or playing a video game, you just never can tell. If the wedding happens to fall during football season, there’s a good chance that the guys will be watching football while they wait for the wedding day festivities to start. Seriously though, they have a lot less going on than the ladies do. Focus on getting ready and enjoying the morning with your girlfriends.
So brides there you go! With the Top 5 tips that will enable you to have a stress free wedding day. Just ensure you plan ahead so you can give yourself enough time to enjoy your day to the max because you truly deserve it.
