Must-Have Items When Getting Ready - Your Wedding Day

The day has finally arrived!! Your wedding day is here! You have dreamed, planned, and worked hard to get to this day and thought of everything to get you to this moment. You start your morning with your girls and if you are lucky enough to still have your mother and grandmother you definitely want them to be a part of the morning as well. Laughing, dancing, talking, and just enjoying that you have your circle of your most trusted confidants to share this moment with you.

Packing everything so you are prepared, the beauty schedule to make sure everyone is done in time for pictures, and having all the backup items in case someone forgets something. But did you also think about food and snacks for everyone so they are not starving when it is time to get dressed?

Your wedding day is about enjoying every minute and the day does not start when you arrive at your ceremony and walk down the aisle.
