You’ve gone through it all. The exciting engagement The fun planning. The dress shopping. The location choosing. And it’s finally here, your big day. So now what? Well, hopefully you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your big day. And if you’ve hired Florida Beach Weddings as your beach wedding planner, all systems are go! So here’s all you need to know for Beach Planning Wedding – the day of your wedding!
Beach Wedding Planning – The Day of Your Wedding
Time management is your best friend as you prepare for the day of your beach wedding. You’ll have a detailed literary from Florida Beach Weddings explaining the exact times of where to be and when. So we’re going to focus on pre-wedding timeline plans!
Rise and Shine!
Hopefully you’re waking up on your big day refreshed and well rested. Well maybe we should back up and say, it’s important to get to bed at a decent hour the night before your wedding. And don’t party hard. A glass of wine or drink the night before is fine to settle any nerves and unwind. However, hangovers, headaches, and regrets are NOT the way to start your big day! Then start of with a normal breakfast. No need to change things up here from your regular routine.
Hair and Make Up
A girl’s got to look good on her big day! Whether you’re doing a D.I.Y. wedding hairstyle or getting a professional touch, remember the 2 hour rule. You should allow at least 2 hours for hair (shampoo, blow out, the works). And you should have about 2 hours before your wedding of being “aisle ready.” Meaning you should be ready to walk the aisle- hair, make up, fed, ready to rock and roll. This sounds like a lot of time, but inevitably something will take a little longer than expected, or traffic, or… Better safe than sorry. And you can get some beach wedding hair inspirations here!
Breakfast, lunch, do your thing. Don’t eat anything out of the ordinary on your wedding day. It’s best to just stick to the usual. If you normally pig out for breakfast, do it. Breakfast skipper? Skip it. And make sure to stay hydrated. It’s easy to get caught up in all the excitement that you forget the H2O. Don’t let dehydration happen to you! And it’s also a good idea to pack a healthy snack for a little pre-wedding snack. You may lose track of time and not eat for hours and we want you feeling your best on your best day!
If you haven’t already, get an ETA from your pre-wedding location to the ceremony site. Thank you technology. And with that being said, you now have no excuse for being late to your own wedding. 🙂
One thing couples often forget is how to deal with “needy guests”(you know that friend who always gets lost, explaining to grandma where to park, flower girl’s mom with 1,000 questions). It’s best to have your maid of honor or other reliable friend as a contact for any wedding guest Q&A. Send out his/her phone# to guests and indicate they can call them with any questions. Or simply give her your phone the day of and she can play operational manager for the day.
Wait for it….
So you’re ready to go! Wait until the last 30-45 minutes before leaving your last stop before the wedding ceremony to get dressed if possible. This eliminates chances to get stains, wrinkles, etc. And don’t forget to use the restroom before dressing. Stay in your air conditioned car for as long as possible before meeting your wedding coordinator.
Once arriving to your wedding ceremony location all the beach wedding planning is a thing of the past. Florida Beach Weddings will give you instructions on where to go from there. And you get to simply enjoy the beautiful beach and your stress free wedding.
Well that’s everything to do the day of. And if you’re not quite there yet, but like the idea of a beach wedding, contact us to start planning today!
