The Morning of the Wedding



Guest blog from Nathalie Crease of Clifton Hotels

The morning of your wedding... and the rest of your lives together!

You’ve spent months (maybe even years) planning your perfect day, from arguing over red or white wines, to nightmares of tripping down the aisle, to developing paranoia over canapés, you’ve finally made it to the most important day of the rest of your lives…

As you’re surrounded by your bridesmaids in your hotel room, hopefully with a glass of something bubbly and delicious close by, consider our tips for how to make the morning of your wedding go smoothly and get you prepared for the big entrance...

1. Don’t forget to eat!

You’re probably feeling an intense mixture of nerves and anticipation, so it’s likely your tummy is doing backflips from the moment you wake up. The last thing you’ll want to do is eat, but it is strongly recommended that you try to eat something, even if only small, as it’s a long time before the big sit down wedding breakfast and feeling faint will only add to your anxiety!

2. Make Up and Hair

Make Up artists and hair stylists will recommend a trial before the big day. Whilst this is often quite pricey, we assure you it is worth it! Not only will it put your mind at ease, but you can actually enjoy getting ready hassle free.

3. Wake Up It’s a Beautiful Morning

Whilst you may have had trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep, it’s important that you make sure you’re up early in morning to allow yourself plenty of time. How long will it take for you and all your entourage to shower? Plan your timings well in advance so all the bridesmaids aren’t all fighting over the same mirror!

4. Try to stay sober (ish)!

Yes, sure, we have endorsed a glass of bubbly or two, but there’s nothing worse than a foggy mind. Try not to drink too much the night before and in the morning, there’s nothing worse than a knot in your stomach and feeling sick from all the bubbles!

5. Enjoy girl time

It’s a big occasion and a chance for all you and your bridesmaids to get ready for such a big event together. Take time to enjoy yourselves! It’s your day after all.
