How to Host an Amazing Getting Ready Party
As wedding vendors, we often see brides getting stressed, nervous, and excited all wrapped in one on the wedding morning. This buzz of mixed emotions that brides experience on the wedding day is what inspired this styled shoot! We believe every bride deserves one last hurrah with her favorite ladies. And no, we’re not talking about the bachelorette party. We’re talking about the getting ready party!
A getting ready party is a fun way for the bride to relax and have fun on her wedding morning. There’s no need to worry about those last minute details. Have a planner or trusted point person take care of that stuff! The bride should be enjoying getting pampered with her bridesmaids and stepping into her wedding gown.
Getting Ready Party Glow
To kick off our styled shoot, our team met at Modehaus Bridal Atelier, a custom wedding gown shop in Minneapolis. After getting GoGlow tans, our bride and bridesmaids put on their matching robes from Oh Sugar Studio. Then our bride and bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done by SM Hair and Makeup.
While getting ready, our bride gave her bridesmaids some gifts from Minny & Paul. Included was a card, a makeup bag, a candle, and caramels. Since a getting ready party is all about a fun atmosphere, it didn’t take long before the music was turned on. Helping everyone get into a light, silly mood.
There were also plenty of yummy treats like macarons and donuts from Cocoa & Fig and Glam Doll Donuts for the girls to enjoy. Always make sure a getting ready party involves food as no one wants a famished or dehydrated bride! It’s important to make sure that the bride eats and drinks plenty of water in the morning!
The Bride’s Dress
After some refreshments, our beautiful bride adorned her Modehaus gown with her wedding dress designer at her final fitting. Once the dress is on and finishing touches are made, the bride is ready for her big day. From matching robes to delicious treats, our goal is to inspire brides and bridesmaids to start saying yes to a getting ready party!
Let the Bride Unwind
Getting ready on the wedding morning is a fun time for the bride. Maids of Honors, if your bride hasn’t figured out plans to get ready beyond a place and time, take charge. Offer to bring along an Ipod with a Getting Ready Playlist and some goodies. Think mimosas, fruit salad, and pastries for everyone to enjoy during hair and makeup! The bride will be incredibly thankful, and it’s one less thing for her to do!
