In the few minutes before you walk down the aisle it can seem a little nerve-wracking or you may have a million thoughts going through your mind. But don’t worry, I’ve created a list of last-minute things to do before you walk down the aisle.
Touch Up Makeup & Hair
Although your makeup and hair stylist have probably done the best they can to make sure everything stays put and that you look your best, touch ups aren’t uncommon on wedding days. So just before you go down the aisle, tuck and hairspray any flyaway hairs and give your lipstick another coat if it needs it. You want to make sure you’re looking like a million bucks when you’re walking down the aisle.
Have Some Water
You may not have eaten or drank much of anything all day because of nerves but you want to make sure you stay hydrated and that you don’t have a dry mouth when you go to say your vows. So have a sip of water before the ceremony begins.
Use The Restroom
It would be awful if you had to use the bathroom during your ceremony, so plan ahead and use the bathroom before you even walk down the aisle. Between photos and saying hi to all of your guests after the ceremony, you likely won’t have another break to use the bathroom for a while.
Don’t let your nerves or jitters get the best of you. Take a deep breath and take in the moment. Walking down the aisle happens so quickly but you want to be sure to cherish the moment, so don’t rush it. Hold your bouquet at your bellybutton height (this way you’re not blocking your beautiful dress or holding it awkwardly), push your shoulders back (good posture makes for great photos) and walk down that aisle like the queen you are (be confident)!
