10 Things To Do On Your Wedding Morning


Wake Up Early

Start your day by waking up early to give yourself plenty of time to relax and enjoy the morning. Allow yourself a few moments of quiet reflection and gratitude for the journey that led you to this incredible day.



Enjoy a Nourishing Breakfast

Begin your day with a nourishing and wholesome breakfast. Fuel your body with nutritious foods that will keep you energised throughout the day. Avoid overly heavy or greasy meals that may leave you feeling bloated or uncomfortable.

Write a Heartfelt Letter

Take a moment to write a heartfelt letter to your partner. Express your love, excitement, and gratitude for the journey you’re about to embark on together. Consider exchanging these letters with your partner before the ceremony for a touching moment.



Practice Mindfulness

In the midst of the whirlwind, practice mindfulness and be present in each moment. Take deep breaths, focus on the beauty around you, and appreciate the significance of this day.



Have a Photo Session

Capture the candid moments of the morning with a photo session. Have your photographer document the special moments with your loved ones and the behind-the-scenes preparation, creating lasting memories to cherish.



Embrace the Love

Above all, embrace the love and joy that surrounds you on the morning of your wedding. Let go of any worries, and trust that everything will unfold beautifully. This is a day to celebrate your love and the start of a wonderful journey together.


And finally, wedding and events planner Lavinia Stewart-Brown suggests organising an activity:  “The morning of your wedding is often busy so creating an hour with your bridal party can help create a really memorable experience whilst also settling nerves. Apart from the important things like making sure you eat and creating a calming environment for you to enjoy the excitement, some people like to organise an actual activity!  I have a few clients who if they are staying at a hotel actually do a yoga class which they have said is a really special moment with the bridal party. If you are having a marquee wedding, a walk as a group in the fresh air is a nice time to get excited together. I think the importance is less on what you actually do but getting to spend some time creating special memories with friends and family”


The morning of your wedding is a time of anticipation and excitement, and by following these ten tips, you can make the most of this special occasion.
