So, you have been planning the wedding day of dreams for weeks, months and even years, and your turn to tie the knot has finally arrived. It’s time for the glam squad to work their magic so that you can turn heads as you walk down the aisle.

Often overlooked, timings are super important for the morning of your wedding and it’s vital that you put together a schedule for your beauty prep to ensure that you don’t feel rushed and ultimately stressed. No bride wants to be flustered over their bridal look as their car is about to leave for the ceremony! To avoid any morning mishaps, sit down and plan a beauty timeline with your bridal party over some celebratory bubbles a week or so before the day arrives. Keep your bridesmaids in the loop so that they know exactly where they need to be and at what time.

We always recommend that you leave a little longer than you think you need for your wedding morning. For instance, if you think your hair being styled will take your hairdresser an hour, allow for an hour and a half to allow for any bridal disasters. As an experienced Hair and Make-Up Artist, Liz Patey will be able to advise on timings that are tailored to suit you and your special day.

Many brides forget to consider important factors that will add minutes if not hours to your wedding morning schedule. For instance, putting on your wedding dress can take a lot longer than you expect. It can take a while to put it on properly and it’s not something you want to rush. In fact, it can create a really special bond between you and the person who is helping you step into it, and it’s a really lovely moment for your photographer to capture on camera.

Leaving time for you and your bridesmaids to have a bite to eat and a glass of champagne is also essential on the morning of your wedding. You don’t want to be hearing your stomach rumble during your beautiful vows! You’ll be surprised by how many brides forget to eat and drink on the morning of their wedding. Why not get your Mum to pop to the local bakery to pick up some fresh pastries and bubbles? The perfect way to start your wedding day with your bridal party.

Ensure you make time for those all-important bridal party selfies too. These images are an absolute must-have and they’re something that you and your best girls will look back on and cherish for years to come.
