Bridal Prep Planning 101

With so many details to plan for your big day, little thought goes into planning your bridal prep. What most brides don’t realize is that they will spend the first half of the day in a room getting ready and taking lots of pictures. Having a relaxed atmosphere in a room that is large enough for all of your bridesmaids and family members to get ready in is a must. Choosing a venue or hotel with lots of room to spread out and amenities is something you should definitely take into consideration. Here are our tips for planning the perfect bridal prep!

Getting Ready - Don’t forget to wear something that comes on and off without messing up your hair and makeup! Matching robes for you and your bridesmaids is a great idea.

The Bubbly - While champagne is the go to, it’s known to go right to your head which may not be the best idea right before walking down the aisle. Opt instead for a light and fruity sangria or mimosas.

Don’t Forget To Eat - Petite bite size pastries are perfect for popping in your mouth without messing up your made up face. Be sure to pack a snack sac for later if you are planning on having an extensive photo session before your walk down the aisle. Being dizzy or nauseous is the last thing you want to feel at the alter.

Sweet Details - Ask your florist for loose blooms or an additional arrangement so your photographer can get creative. Be sure to have your wedding jewelry, shoes and invitations easily accessible as photographers typically shoot these items during bridal prep.

Bridal Portraits - Your first bridal portraits will most likely be taken during bridal prep. Having a light filled space with a neutral background is ideal. Be sure to clear any clutter out the space you will be standing in your room for pictures.
