Get plenty of rest the night before
We all know how fun the rehearsal din­ner can be and that you auto­mat­i­cally want to start cel­e­brat­ing with your fam­ily and clos­est friends but tomor­row is your big day! You’ll thank your­self when you wake up on your wed­ding day with plenty of beauty sleep!

Let your bridal party love on you
It’s your day, right?! The one day that gets to be all about you and your fiancé so don’t feel bad if you let your bridal party take care of you all day long! They love you and want it to be just as per­fect as you do! Virginia Beach Wedding Venue Lesner Inn (26)

Pam­per your­self
Make sure to pam­per your­self as well! Take some time in the morn­ing and drink your cup of cof­fee with as much cream as you desire, take a warm shower, lather up with lotion, or do what­ever your heart desires. Today is a day where the pam­per­ing never ends!

Calm­ing scents
Start the morn­ing with your favorite can­dle or burn incense to get the mood right for you and the bridal party. Soak it all in and let the fun begin!

Sounds in the back­ground
Just the same, cre­ate a playlist or turn on Spo­tify and just let it play! Music in the back­ground is a must to keep the party going before it actu­ally even starts!

Pop the bub­bly
Once you feel like you’ve had enough cups of cof­fee to get you through the day, don’t be afraid to pop the cham­pagne, crank up the music, and start cel­e­brat­ing! It’s a day to remem­ber so why not start off the cel­e­bra­tions with some cham­pagne!

Take some pho­tos before the cer­e­mony
You’ll have so much more time to spend with your guests dur­ing the recep­tion if you take some of your pic­tures before the cer­e­mony. Even if you want to stick to see­ing your fiancé for the first time down the aisle, you can still get all of the other pho­tos out of the way!

Don’t for­get to eat
You’ll hear this a mil­lion times and we’ll tell you again! Whether you’re too excited to eat before the cer­e­mony or want­ing to thank every­one for com­ing after­wards, make sure you grab some food dur­ing cock­tail hour or sit down for a minute to take a bite of your meal. If all else fails, just ask your caterer to box up your din­ner so you can dive in at the hotel!

Spend the night with your new spouse
The day will be filled with your bridal party, fam­ily and friends, but don’t for­get to spend a few spe­cial moments as new­ly­weds. You’ll want mem­o­ries of not only hav­ing fun with your guests, but also spend­ing time as a cou­ple!

Remem­ber to soak in the moment
Take a moment to look around the room at the recep­tion and think about how much each per­son means to you. It may be the only time in your life where all of those peo­ple are in the same room and you’ll want to remem­ber that feel­ing when you start out the jour­ney of mar­riage together!


Hope­fully, these tips can help you stay calm and enjoy all of the hap­pi­ness on your big day! Just remem­ber, at the end of the day, it’s about you and your fiancé start­ing a new life together and cel­e­brat­ing that by cre­at­ing mem­o­ries sur­rounded by the peo­ple you love!
