Your wedding day is a whirlwind of emotions, excitement, and, of course, love. To ensure that your special day kicks off on the right note, it’s crucial to have a well-planned and stress-free morning. Here’s your recipe for a smooth and easy wedding day morning that will set the perfect tone for the rest of the day.

Designate a Wedding Day Coffee Grabber

Start your morning right by assigning someone to be the designated coffee grabber. The night before your big day, send your coffee orders to this person and confirm a time of arrival with them. Picture this: a dedicated individual ensuring your caffeine fix is ready and waiting for you. Bonus points for making the bride feel extra special with a cup that proudly says “Bride!” It’s a small touch that adds a sprinkle of joy to your morning.

Don’t Forget Food

It’s a marathon, not a sprint. Your wedding day will be filled with joy, laughter, and dancing, but it’s essential to fuel up for the journey. Bring breakfast or brunch foods for you and your crew. A well-fed bridal party is a happy and energetic bridal party. Consider sandwich delivery for a convenient and delicious option that keeps everyone satisfied. Remember, a well-nourished bride is a radiant bride.

Wedding Day Wardrobe Choices Matter

When it comes to getting dressed, opt for a button-up shirt or something loose enough that can easily be taken off or slipped over your head without disturbing your meticulously done hair and makeup. This simple choice will save you from any potential wardrobe mishaps and ensure that you step into your wedding gown looking flawless. Plus, they make for really cute wedding day morning photos!!

Coordinate with Your Photographer

Your wedding photographer plays a crucial role in capturing the beautiful moments of your day. Coordinate with them in advance about the items they’ll need to capture those gorgeous “detail” photos. Once you have the list, set aside all those items in a designated box for easy access. A shoebox works perfectly for this! This thoughtful preparation ensures that your photographer can seamlessly begin snapping those memorable shots as soon as they arrive, without any delays or distractions.


Your wedding day is a celebration of love, and the morning sets the tone for the entire day. By following these simple steps, you can ensure that the hours leading up to your ceremony are filled with joy, relaxation, and anticipation. From a personalized coffee experience to a well-fed bridal party, thoughtful wardrobe choices, and seamless coordination with your photographer, these tips will help make your wedding day morning as smooth and glorious as the rest of your unforgettable day.
