To ensure your morning goes as smoothly as possible, you need to create a detailed timeline and try to adhere to it as best as possible. Keep reading for a suggested morning prep timeline that will help you relax, enjoy, and savor every moment as you get ready for the big day!

3 to 6 Months Before – Plan Your Morning

We know this is about morning prep for your wedding, but prep starts well in advance of your wedding day! A few months before the wedding, start thinking about how you want the morning to unfold. Decide where you’ll be getting ready—whether it’s at a hotel, your home, or at your venue. Also, think about who you want present during this time, such as family members and bridal party members, so you can let them know your plans well in advance. You should also speak with your hair and makeup stylist and photographer to start laying out a timeline for the morning with their expertise.

2 to 3 Weeks Before – Finalize Your Timeline

A few weeks before the wedding, you should finalize the details of your morning timeline. This includes specific times for each activity and who needs to be where and when. Coordinate with your vendors—such as your hairstylist, makeup artist, photographer, and transportation—to confirm their arrival times and roles. Share this timeline with everyone involved to ensure they know the plan and can prepare accordingly.
