Are you looking for ways to add fun to your wedding morning? If so, then check out this guest post on 4 ways you can add some fun to your wedding morning.
Your wedding day is perhaps the most important day of your life. It’s certainly meant to be one of the best. But, that’s a lot of pressure. We put so much time, energy, and money into this one day. We’re so determined that it will be perfect and that everyone will have a great time.
This often means that by the time the big day arrives, we’re stressed out, tired, and anxious. Many brides and grooms find that they can’t enjoy the day until they’ve actually said, “I Do” and even then, they are so busy checking on everyone else that they barely get a second for each other.
Wedding mornings often get neglected. They are filled with the bits that we need to do before the wedding: long to-do lists, plenty of appointments, lots of last-minute checks, and tweaks.
The morning of your wedding is, however, part of your day. If you can manage to enjoy it, you might just find that the rest of the day is more relaxed, less stressful, and that things run more smoothly.
Here’s a look at some of the things you can do to add some fun to your wedding morning.
1. Buy Each Other Gifts
You might not want to see your partner on the morning of your wedding, but leaving each other gifts to find can be a great way to make each other smile. While these gifts could be romantic or meaningful, they could also be fun, cute, or silly. Leaving some funny socks for your groom to find can be a great way to ease his tension and make him smile.
2. Skip the Photographer
Many brides choose to invite their wedding photographer to take photos of them and their bridesmaids getting ready. But some find that this increases tension and means that they feel on edge while getting dressed. You might prefer to spend this time with people that you know well (who could still take some great candid pics) without having to worry about whether they are smiling.
3. Build a Playlist
If you are getting ready with friends or family, it can be a great idea to build a Spotify playlist. Fill it with all of the tunes that mean something to your group. This can help you to relax and have a little fun.
4. Have a Slumber Party
If you are worried about how much you’ve got to do, starting the night before can be a big help. Invite some friends or your bridesmaids over for a slumber party so that you can spend the night getting pampered and ticking some jobs off your to-do list. This also means that you won’t be alone the next morning, and there’ll be no time for nerves to take hold.
Your wedding morning is an important part of the day. It helps to set the tone and your mood for the rest of it. Having a little fun can help you to start the day on the right path.
