Here are your top tasks for the morn­ing of your big day…

Bride & Groom - - CONTENTS -

Eat break­fast

They say break­fast is the most im­por­tant meal of the day, and it couldn’t be more true than on the most im­por­tant day of your life! You’ll be swept up in the whirl­wind of ac­tiv­ity to­day, and may not get a chance to sam­ple the canapés, so fuel up with a hearty break­fast that will keep you go­ing.

Get groomed

All eyes will be on you and your bride to­day, so make sure you’re look­ing your best. If pos­si­ble, get a pro­fes­sional shave and tidy any stray eye­brow hairs, plus a man­i­cure if you’re up for it! Make sure you ap­ply an­tiper­spi­rant de­odor­ant and your favourite fra­grance.

Keep track of the rings

You’ll hand these all-im­por­tant pieces of jew­ellery over to your best man at some stage dur­ing the morn­ing – make sure he’s on the ball and keeps them safe. Don’t for­get to keep your speech notes and mar­riage cer­tifi­cate close as well.

Re­lax with mates

If time al­lows, kick back and en­joy some big-day bond­ing with your groomsmen on the morn­ing of your wed­ding. Go for a re­fresh­ing swim at the beach, play a round of golf or backyard cricket, head to the bar­ber­shop for those clean shaves, or just en­joy break­fast to­gether.

Send your bride a gift

Your bride will be busy with fam­ily, friends, hair and makeup on the morn­ing of your wed­ding. It’s a nice idea to send her a lit­tle some­thing to re­mind her that you are think­ing of her and look­ing for­ward to spend­ing the rest of your life to­gether – per­haps a love note, a framed photo, jew­ellery or a bot­tle of Cham­pagne to en­joy as she gets ready.

Be on time

Aim to ar­rive at your cer­e­mony venue at least half an hour be­fore it’s due to start. This way you can make sure ev­ery­thing is in or­der, greet your of­fi­ciant and guests, and help seat the VIPs.
