Make your w-day prep a fun part of your celebration
Who says you have to spend the morning of your wedding away from your future spouse? Brides Bethany and Nadine eschewed tradition and decided to prepare for the biggest day of their lives together.
“We’ve always enjoyed getting ready for big events, so why would our wedding day be any different?” says Nadine. “Our friends and family are a shared group of people we both love, so the idea of either of us not having certain people there because they were with the other one seemed bizarre.
“We hadn’t thought that much about the morning of the wedding, as we were so focused on the ceremony being just right – but it turned out to be an incredibly special part of the day. We loved waking up together and being excited. We also calmed each other’s nerves in a way no one else could have done. I think we would have felt much more anxious getting ready separately.
“There were still plenty of fun ‘reveal’ moments, like when we each walked down the stairs in our wedding outfits. We chatted, drank Buck’s Fizz and watched each other as we had our hair and make-up done. It felt like the most natural thing in the world. We wanted our wedding day to start as we intended it to go on: being together as a team. With all our loved ones there as well, it felt just right for that.”
