How To Make Sure Your Wedding Morning is Calm and Relaxed

“Relax and enjoy your wedding day with no hassle!”

After being a part of a series of gorgeous celebrations, we at Agani understand how difficult getting ready on the morning of your wedding may be. As we all know, the build-up to the big day is enormous, and before you know it, you’re waking up on your wedding day, both excited and nervous! It’s easy to become overwhelmed when there are people coming and going, a deadline to adhere to, and all of your emotions about the day. So, to help you prepare for your wedding morning and make it as stress-free, pleasant, and enjoyable as possible, we’ve compiled a list of 13 Amazing Tips for ‘A Calm Wedding Morning’ that will allow you to be fully present.

1. Go to bed early

First and foremost, get a good night’s sleep the night before! It may take you a little longer to fall asleep with your excitement and anxiety running high, so go to bed a little earlier than usual to obtain a decent night’s sleep. To aid in a pleasant slumber, download a mindfulness app that you desire, have fresh linens, and a quiet and calming song to go along with it.

2. Arrange your outfit and accessories

Hang your dress and lay out all of your shoes, accessories, lingerie, and garter, with all of the labels ripped off of your new purchases. You can also do this with the outfits and accessories of the bridesmaids. This allows the photographer to shoot those crucial detail shots without bothering you, and it also ensures that everything is ready for you to put on once your hair and makeup are done. If you’re bringing a little clutch with you, make sure you have these with you as well,

  • Lipstick
  • Lip balm
  • Lip pencil
  • Setting powder
  • Blotting paper
  • Mascara
  • Eyeliner
  • Your chosen fragrance (if necessary, decanted into a travel bottle)
  • A compact mirror
  • A small nail file
  • Nail glue
  • Eyelash glue
  • Sunglasses
  • Hand sanitizer
  • A face mask or face covering
  • A hair clip or two
  • Gum or mints
  • Medication (if necessary)
  • Painkillers
  • Tissues or handkerchief
  • A few cotton buds (incredibly useful for removing smeared makeup)
  • Sanitary pads, tampons, or other sanitary products
  • Safety pins
  • Stain remover stick or wipes
  • Plasters
  • Body tape
  • Foldable flats
  • Your phone and a phone charger (if you want your phone with you)
  • The keys to your accommodation
  • Your vows
  • Your speech

3. Develop a mindfulness practice

Carve out some time on the morning of the wedding for mindfulness, meditation, or yoga if you practice those – this is especially helpful if you tend to feel stressed.

4. Don’t forget to feed yourself

Although many brides claim they are too nervous or thrilled to eat in the morning, a hearty, healthy breakfast is essential to get you through the day. A stacked breakfast bowl with fresh fruit, natural yogurt, and cereal, as well as a soothing cup of tea of your choice, will help you start the day off right. If your nerves are heightened, stay away from oily and stodgy foods, as these might make you feel nauseated and bloated. If you’re staying at the venue or a hotel, place your breakfast order the night before for room service delivery.

5. Take care of yourself

Make time in your agenda for some pampering! Take a nice bath with essential oils, light some candles, put on some relaxing music, and give yourself this time to prepare for the day. If your mind is racing with all the minutiae of the day ahead, this should assist. Allow time to apply an all-over body moisturizer and let it absorb.

6. Make a hair and beauty schedule

When you conduct your hair and makeup trials, keep track of how long they take so you know how long they’ll take on the big day. Before the hairstylist and makeup artists arrive, double-check how your hair and skin should be treated; you may need to have your hair washed the night before. Confirm the timeline with your hair and makeup professionals and inform your bridal party so there are no surprises. Before the big day, make sure you’ve tested any new beauty products to avoid any last-minute reactions!

7. Don’t forget about the prep attire

Put on some gorgeous bridal PJs and a silk or cotton robe to get ready in; not only will you look stunning, but you won’t have to worry about being photographed in your soiled PJs.

8. Select soothing aromas

Have your favorite perfume ready to go in the form of a room diffuser, natural oil, or candle, and as you get ready, a wonderful aroma will fill the space. As an added benefit, the aroma will always carry you back to that morning after the big day!

9. Play some delightful sounds

Make a playlist of your favorite music to listen to, or a playlist of beautiful love songs which brings your relationship to life. If you’re not getting ready at home, don’t forget to carry a set of portable speakers in your overnight bag.

10. Get the celebrations going

Have a toast with your bridal party with a glass of wine! But remember, don’t overindulge; you’ve got a long day ahead of you, and you don’t want all that enthusiasm to go to your head!

11. Get Rid of the Planning!

Confirm timings with your suppliers and bridal party a few days ahead of time, such as hair and makeup artist arrival or flower and cake delivery, so you don’t have to worry about it on the morning of the wedding. Make sure you have everything ready to go and in place before the big day if you’re planning on making items, arranging flowers, or doing some of your own decor. If you want to check the venue or set up, do it first so it’s out of the way. Prepare all cash for any on-the-day vendors in envelopes and pass it over to a trustworthy member of your bridal party, such as your chief bridesmaid or best man.

12. Surround yourself with a calming inner circle

If you suffer from anxiety, strive to surround yourself with those people who can make you feel more relaxed. It may be your mother, your wedding party, or your fiancé. You may have vendors in the room with you while getting ready (hairstylists, makeup artists, the photographer, videographer, or wedding coordinator), so choose them carefully and make sure you have a good, natural dynamic with them. With a sign on the door, ask any other visitors to be considerate of your time as you get ready. Nominate a trusted member of your bridal party or your wedding planner to answer concerns, reduce last-minute stress, and relieve you of any pressure so you can enjoy your special day to the fullest.

13. Allow for additional time

Make sure your wedding day timeline includes enough of contingency time. If time runs short, you don’t want to feel rushed out the door! We propose that you arrive one hour prior to the commencement of your ceremony. This means that instead of hurrying at the last minute, you may be comfortable and ready to go while still having time to enjoy being with your bridal party. If you’re conducting a first look with your mother, father, or other half, handing out wedding party gifts, or simply enjoying a glass of wine or champagne before you leave, allow additional time. If you’re driving to your ceremony or performing a first look, plan plenty of time to account for any traffic or other delays.
