With the wedding day finally here, and the overwhelming amount of stress, all you need is a minute to pamper yourself with your girls. Take a minute to sit down, unwind, and exfoliate.

Treat your bridal party to spa day for the perfect wedding day glow. Whether you’re making homemade face masks or having a day at the salon, enjoy this time together and take the moment to calm down surrounded by those you love most.

Tip #2: Wear Matching Bridal Robes

Speaking of pampering, nothing is cooler than a bride and her bridesmaids in matching robes. What’s better than feeling luxurious while getting ready for the day? Surprise them the morning of with their very own matching gift. Bonus points if they’re embroidered!

Also, let’s not forget about all the gorgeous photo opportunities.

Tip #3: Say Cheers with a Morning Mimosa Bar

Toasting with your ladies to your happily ever after is a wonderful way to start off the day.

Tip #4: Relax, Don’t Rush

The last thing you want on your wedding day is to be rushed. Especially when it comes to getting ready. There’s make-up to be done, hair to style, and dresses to steam.

Make sure to have plenty of time planned for not only you, but also your girls to enjoy every moment. Get breakfast at a local café. Play some of your favorite music to sing along to when you’re getting ready. Pose for lots of funny pictures and avoid rushing through the day.

Everyone has the friend who takes far longer than others to get ready for events, so make sure everyone is accounted for.

Tip #5: Make It an Historic Celebration
