Unforgettable Wedding Morning Tips You May Not Think Of 💖

Hey beautiful Nearly Weds!


Your big day is finally here! As your trusty bridal hair and makeup artist, I'm here to share some golden nuggets of wisdom to make your wedding morning as smooth and joyful as possible. Let’s dive into some tips that you might not have thought of but can truly make a world of difference. 🌟


1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! 💧

Start your morning with a big glass of water. Staying hydrated helps your skin look fresh and glowing and keeps you feeling energized throughout the day. Bonus points if you add a slice of lemon for a refreshing twist! Keep coffee second as you don't want to be buzzin' all morning!

2. Create a Playlist 🎶

Put together a playlist beforehand of your favorite tunes to keep the mood light and fun while you’re getting ready. Music is a great way to calm any pre-wedding jitters and set a joyful tone for the day.

3. Have a No-Makeup Morning 🌞

Arrive with a fresh face. It’s best to come makeup-free so your artist can work their magic on a clean canvas. This also means having clean, dry hair for the best styling results.

4. Steaming the Dress 👗

Make sure your wedding dress is wrinkle-free and picture-perfect by steaming it before your hair and makeup session. This little prep step ensures everything is in tip-top shape for those early photos! And doing it before hair and makeup begins is key to having you look stay all day!

5. Assign a Point Person 📱

Hand your phone off to a trusted bridesmaid or family member. You don’t want to be distracted by texts and calls especially when you are in the hair and makeup chair. Let someone else handle the logistics so you can focus on soaking in every special moment.

6. Snack Smart 🍇

Keep some light, healthy snacks on hand. Fresh fruit, nuts, and protein bars are perfect for keeping your energy up without feeling too full or bloated. You don’t want to feel faint from hunger, but also avoid heavy foods that could weigh you down. Also keep in mind that you may be wearing lipstick, so small, bite-sized snacks are best for the morning!

7. Sentimental Moments 💌

If you have any sentimental letters or gifts, read or exchange them before your beauty session. This way, you can have a private, emotional moment without worrying about your makeup getting smudged!

8. Room Setup 🏠

Ensure your getting-ready space is spacious and well-lit. Sometimes venues don't have enough room, so consider booking a suite at a nearby hotel or even using my 1200 sq ft studio. Avoid cramped bathrooms and opt for places with plenty of natural light and space for everyone to move around comfortably.

9. Keep Your Vision Clear 🖼️

Make sure everyone in your bridal party has a clear vision of what they want for their hair and makeup. Having a few reference photos can speed up the process and ensure everyone looks cohesive and fabulous.

10. Gift Exchange 🎁

If you have gifts for your bridesmaids, hand them out early. This not only ensures they get appreciated before the chaos begins but also gives you a sweet moment to enjoy together.


Planning and preparing these little details can help make your wedding morning stress-free and delightful. Remember, this day is all about celebrating your love and joy, so take every opportunity to savor each moment. ✨
