8 Fun Things You Should Do With Your Bridesmaids On Your Wedding Day

Start your day on a positive note with our list of fun things you should do with your bridesmaids before you say “I do”!

Your wedding day is going to be busy and emotionally charged, so before all the hustle and bustle begins, take some time in the morning to create memories with your pillar of support throughout your wedding journey – your bridesmaids. Setting aside some time to be with your bridesmaids in the morning before the flurry of activities start unfolding helps instill a positive vibe and quell any stress or anxiety for the day ahead.

Plus, it’s a great opportunity for you to create a core memory for you and your besties as you celebrate friendship, love and a new beginning! Go forth and have an enjoyable wedding morning with your girls with our list of 8 fun things you should do with your bridesmaids before you say “I do”!

1. Plan a Sleepover

There isn’t a better way to spend the last night of your single life than having your girls sleep over and sharing a night of laughter and pampering together. Start the evening with an indulgent dinner and your favourite movie, and perhaps add in a little wine, followed by a pampering DIY home spa session with face masks, manicures and pedicures while you catch up with one another, sharing heart-to-heart talks and a few laughs.

2. Coordinate your get-ready outfits

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to twin with all your besties in matching get-ready robes or easy-to-wear pyjamas to create a fun memory! Not only would it look great on photos, the matching outfits will become cherished keepsakes for your bridesmaids and you, adding another milestone to your friendship.

3. Have Breakfast together

Start the day right with breakfast with your girls, even if you don’t feel like eating. It’s vital to get something in your system since you have a long day ahead and your next meal is a while away. Instead of a heavy breakfast, consider preparing some toast, cereal or fruits for a light and healthy meal. Besides, there’s nothing more calming and happy than having a relaxing meal with the group of girls who have been with you through thick and thin.

4. Bring on the caffeine (or pop the champagne)

Wedding mornings start notoriously early, so keep everyone energised for the long day ahead with caffeine. Lay out a cosy coffee and tea bar where you and your bridesmaids can get your fix of caffeine as you get ready, or order in from your favourite coffee or tea joint. Don’t forget to prepare extras in case anyone needs more than one cup to keep their energy up!

If you are starting your day slightly later in the day, then celebrate the occasion with some champagne to get the good vibes flowing as you prepare for the celebration.

5. Co-create a Playlist and Put It On As you Get ready

Create a fun and joyful atmosphere by creating a playlist together with your girls and put it on as you get ready in the morning to get your energy levels going and relieve any wedding day jitters. While it’s a great way to instill a positive vibe to the day, do be mindful of your neighbours – don’t turn the music up too loud, especially if you are getting ready in the wee hours of the morning!

6. Do Your hair and makeup together

Elevate your bridesmaids’ experience by treating them to a professional hair and makeup session with you, so you can all get ready together. Not only will it save your girls the trouble of doing their hair and makeup on their own amidst preparing the games for the arrival of your groom and his groomsmen, the session will become a bonding moment as all of you sit next to or around each other, getting dolled up and ready for the celebration.

7. Gift Your Bridesmaids

Show your love and appreciation for your bridesmaids for being your pillar of support throughout your wedding planning journey by gifting them with a small gift. It could be a personalised item, sentimental keepsakes, a spa or stay voucher or matching robes or accessories to wear while getting ready. Complete the thoughtful surprise with a hand-written note to each and every one of your girls to thank them for their help and friendship.

8. Take Plenty of photos together

After all that pampering and getting ready, it would be a waste not to take plenty of photos to commemorate your special day. Selfies with your bridesmaids are great and sweet keepsakes that you can look back on, but don’t forget to set time aside for professional photos too!

Since your hair, makeup and flowers will be at their best at the start of the day, and your bridesmaids will likely be less busy in the morning, remember to allocate some time for some bridal party portraits with your photographer before the flurry of activities start. Let your photographer know that you’d like some behind-the-scenes photos of you and your bridesmaids getting ready in the morning as well, so you have these heartwarming and precious moments as keepsakes after the wedding is over.
