Make your w-day prep a fun part of your cel­e­bra­tion

You and Your Wedding - - Contents -

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.”
