Firstly Relax. We have everything in order!
Make sure you give yourself enough time to get ready – aim to be ready for 30 mins minimum before your guests arrive!
It is lovely to start the celebrations with a glass of prosecco whilst getting ready but make sure you also drink plenty of water, especially if it is a hot day. (keeping hydrated is a must!) It’s also a good idea to order some food whilst getting ready to make sure your stomach doesn’t rumble during the ceremony!
Before your make up artist arrives make sure you blow your nose, sounds strange but you don’t want to blow your nose when they have already done your foundation! Another great idea is to bring your dressing gown along, (Home comforts are always a nice touch on the big day). By wearing your robe, you prevent any makeup getting onto your clothes, and it is always good to chuck on over your dress if your makeup needs touching up to keep your gown makeup free!
Create a little makeup bag containing your makeup bits and pieces (and some tissues) for one of your bridesmaids to look after. Before you head down the aisle, spritz yourself a final time with some perfume to complete your look. You will be talking to the registrars so do make sure you let them know if you want the ceremony unplugged-they announce this before the ceremony.
It’s perfectly natural to feel a bit anxious before the ceremony, your hands will be warm and possibly clammy. 5 mins before walking down the aisle dip your hands in a bowl of cold water- that way your ring should just slide on! (fingers crossed).
You may be nervous before the ceremony, but through remembering some of these tips, your grand entrance will be one to remember.
