3. Bubbles and snacks- Be sure to pre-arrange for a nice bottle of bubbly and small bites for getting ready, you don't want a 'hangry' bridal party. It is a long day and nerves are high, so be sure to eat and stay hydrated!

4. Don't Plan Any Morning Activities- Just relax that morning and enjoy spending time with your girls during hair and makeup. You will appreciate the calm moments before mingling and greeting all your guests. Just take it all in without having anything else planned, you will appreciate not having any other commitments that day.

5. Choose the perfect location- Pick a spacious location with lots of natural light for beautiful photos! Keep your items organized and tidy so the room is clean. A clean room will give a better backdrop for your getting ready shots and give more room to move around.
