Mornings at the lakeside are my fav! Especially when we get to hang out with an awesome crew.

Wedding morning antics! We LOVE being part of your morning and know there can be a lot to think about before the big day, so here are some of our tips to help your morning run as smoothly (and fun) as possible!
Be hair prepped - Wash your hair the evening before and give it a blowdry with a tiny bit of mousse on the ends before bed. This will save you time in the morning, help your hair hold the style better on the day and you will have your hair prepped perfectly for your hairstylist.
Fuel up - Ask one of your bridesmaids to be in charge of the food - A sitdown breakfast, to get you ready for the busy day ahead and a platter with finger food (for later in the day). Perfect to snack on while getting hair and makeup done. Coffee drinkers, make sure you have someone on coffee too!
Get steaming - Have a steam wand ready so you can take turns steaming dresses while the others are in the makeup chair. – Don’t forget the veil.
Leave your phone alone - pop your phone on do not disturb or leave it in another room. No one will expect you to reply the morning of your wedding. Relax, pop a bottle of bubbles and enjoy the morning with your bride tribe.
Get your sleep - If you have a large bridal party, try to get in a team of hair and makeup artists so you don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn to get started. All the more beauty sleep!
