You’ve spent months building up to today – your wedding. You’ve got the perfect dress, a theme you love, and a wonderful venue. However, it’s a little early to truly relax – you can do that after the speeches.

Here are the top dos and don’ts for getting dressed on your wedding day

Don’t get into a rush dressing

If you’re like most brides, you’re likely planning on a professional hairdo and makeup. It is best to allow 1 to 1.5 hours for each. You should check out these tips to get the perfect makeup for your big day so that you can be certain you don’t miss a single thing on the big day and feel amazing.

Do Wear something casual

Don’t be in a rush to get into your wedding dress. When you’re first getting ready, don’t wear your dress, or you run the risk of accidental spills. Instead put on some pjs or comfy clothes and chill while you get ready.

Do you have a timeline

Even if your bridesmaids are more informal and laid back, it’s a good idea to come up with a timeline for when everyone is expected to be ready. It will also help you feel that there is a finishing line in sight.

Do have snacks and drinks for your wedding party

Your wedding day is likely to be a busy one with lots happening. It’s always worth it to have some nibbles and drinks handy when you’re getting ready, but you will want to be careful.

Don’t overindulge

Drinks, food, and even the warmth from your bridesmaids can make you feel more relaxed than normal. Try to choose your time wisely and not get drunk before the wedding.

Don’t stress too much about the dress but have a change of clothes also

You’ve spent months (if not years) dreaming about it, so enjoy wearing it. However, don’t be afraid to have a change of clothes on hand. You might want to stash some old clothes in one of your bags just in case something goes wrong with their outfits.

Do check the number of sockets

Depending on the number of bridesmaids, you should make sure there are enough electrical sockets or adapters to go around. Always take it in turn with your wedding party.

Do go for a trial run

If you’re paying for a hairdo, it’s best to go for a trial run. This is especially important if you’re planning on wearing your hair up – many hairdressers give an updo slightly differently each time.

Don’t cut it too close

It’s bound to be an emotional day, so make sure that you give yourself plenty of time so that if anything goes wrong (and it often does), you’ll still be able to deal with it calmly.

Do make a plan for your phone

If you’re taking your phone with you, how will you carry it around? You will probably get a lot of messages and calls from well-wishers. So make a plan on how you will carry your phone and when will it be switched on.

Don’t try to cram in too much

This is the day you have dreamed of. You want to do so much, but it’s important not to cram too much into a short timeframe. A more relaxed approach will allow you to enjoy the day.

Do relax and enjoy yourself

The big day is here – this is what all the hard work has been for! Enjoy every moment of it.
