Bride Guide #56 gives you the final tips on things you need to know for the morning of your wedding by Logan UT Wedding Photographer Lauren Kay Photography.
Are you supposed to travel to your wedding together? If you haven’t done your first look yet, you’ll need
to travel separately so that your groom can have that special moment of seeing you for the first time.
But, if you already have, it can be a special time to connect with each other. Your groom can come pick
you up and you can travel to the temple or venue together. Remember to consider traffic, budget extra
time, and stash your details like your dress and bouquet somewhere that they won’t get damaged
during the drive.
Put them away. The people you care to talk to should be at your wedding, right? So just put them away
and enjoy every moment. You can pull them out for one or two selfies but other than that, leave them
stashed in a car or with someone else.
To have with you: ● Temple bag and clothing and recommend ● Marriage license ● Dress on hangar ● Robe for getting ready ● Perfume ● Earrings, necklace, bracelet, or other jewelry ● Wedding ring and wedding band (make sure your groom’s ring makes it there too) ● Bouquet (if you need a good florist click here:) https://laurenkayphoto.com/vendors, https://www.sweetaftonfloral.com/ ● Shoes ● Announcements ● Veil or hair accessories ● Anything sentimental or special you want photographed ● An extra pair of clothes and shoes ● Your exit clothing ● Underwear ● Lingerie ● Any hair and makeup tools if you’re doing it yourself ● Water ● Snacks ● Wedding night and honeymoon bags ● Purse – phone, wallet, and keys
Exchange notes. At some point, take a minute to exchange the notes you have for each other. This also means, tell your groom beforehand to write you a note! Just because you have to ask doesn’t make it less meaningful. You must eat and drink! You don’t want to pass out. And it’s happened to brides before. Eat and drink sister. Pro tip: Choose a well-lit and spacious space to get ready in. You want it to be well-lit for pictures and spacious to help you stay relaxed.
