You’ve been proposed to. You are over the moon thinking about all the preparations before the big day, the wedding dress, who will be invited, the menu, the flowers, the venue … But, what about the hours before? Have you thought about where will you get prepared and what will you wear while you’re getting ready? Here you will find some wedding ideas to help you choose.

We know you want to feel gorgeous on your wedding day, and this feeling should last from the moment you open your eyes to the very end, when you’ll be kicking off your heels on the dance floor.

Wedding ideas to match your dress to the event

Now that the countdown has officially begun, it’s time to think not only about the wedding gown and makeup, but also about your wedding beauty routine. This may be the time to get started on some activities that will help you look your best:

  • Start growing your hair
  • Whiten your teeth
  • Get tanned or experiment with self-tanners
  • Eat healthier and begin (or increase) the work-out
  • Shape your brows
  • Experiment with new hair and makeup styles

We suggest to start getting ready four to five hours before the ceremony begins. Of course, this can vary depending on how many bridesmaids you’re having, the complexity of your hair and makeup, etc.  Five hours should be enough time for hair, makeup and photos of a bride with a bridal party of four. Add an hour and a half for each additional bridal party member.

What should you wear to get ready for your wedding?

Current bridal robes trends offer you and your bridesmaids such a wide variety of dressing gowns in so many styles; that you’ll be ready for the most fabulous pre-wedding photographs with your girls! But just like with wedding dresses, the choice can be overwhelming. These trends extend from lengthy dressing gowns, fashion-forward kaftans, romantic lace and vintage inspired robes, kimono robes to gorgeous organic and sustainable robes… Any style you choose will take you from your pre-wedding prep to lazy mornings and late nights during your honeymoon.

An additional idea: fix a bridal party robe set and give it to your leading ladies as a bridesmaid proposal gift!

Once you have got your makeup and hair done, when should you put your wedding dress on? We recommend you get dressed 15 to 30 minutes before you meet with the photographer for any pre-wedding portraits with family or your bridesmaids.

Never put on your wedding dress until your hair and makeup are ready to go and remember to step into your wedding gown instead of pulling it on over your head, this will avoid getting any makeup or hair products on it!
