The day is finally here; the one you’ve dreamed about for a lifetime and planned for what probably seems like an eternity, so now it’s time to relish in the five things to do on the morning of your wedding.
If you let it, this special day can feel overwhelming, so it’s important to take time to bask in the emotions, traditions and meaningful moments – before they become memories. Start your day on the right note with the following five activities to ensure you’re feeling relaxed and ready to walk down the aisle with nothing on your mind, but the love of your life.
During a day packed with wedding activities, couples – especially brides – make the mistake of forgetting to get proper nourishment. This can lead to not feeling quite your best and limiting your ability to dance the night away with all your loved ones. Book a reservation at a great restaurant with your wedding party ahead of time, so you’re already committed to a satisfying meal.
Each Vintage Hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake boasts gorgeous dining spaces where you can indulge in an elegant breakfast, brunch or high tea. By staying close to your wedding venue, you’ll have more time to sip and savour your meal with your bridal party, without having to worry about chasing the clock to the aisle.
Both the bride and groom want to feel their best on their wedding day. When you host your wedding with Vintage Hotels, you will have two award-winning spas at your fingertips where you can choose from a wide variety of health and beauty enhancing treatments.
From a relaxing massage to a variety of aesthetic treatments, you can combine whichever pampering techniques most appeal to you and your wedding party and then escape to a Vintage Hotels spa, where all your senses will be revitalized.
Say, I love you to Your Soon-to-Be Spouse
At times, it can seem like the wedding day gets away from you and becomes more about event logistics and everyone else but you and your Prince or Princess Charming. A wonderful wedding tradition that keeps couples focused on the most important part of the day – each other – is to write love letters that are delivered before the ceremony begins.
Sit in a quiet spot with a great cup of coffee and reflect on your journey towards this momentous occasion, and let your fiancé know exactly how much they mean to you. This letter will be a keepsake neither of you will ever want to let go of, and it helps calm the big day jitters.
Hit the Fairway
Usually, the bridal party is busy from sunrise to sunset with wedding oriented-activities. However, the groom’s party may have a few hours to spare, and a Niagara-on-the-Lake fairway just might make the perfect place to enjoy the calm before the storm.
If you decide to go this route, make sure you book an early enough tee time that your guests and, more importantly, your bride are not waiting at the altar for you to gather your golf clubs.
