I’ve had couples tell me that getting ready together was one of the best things they could have done on their day. Anticipation about getting married is stressful enough, and having your partner by your side helps ease all kinds of giddy nerves.
Did you know the tradition of not seeing your partner before your wedding ceremony actually came from when brides and grooms only met for the first time, on their wedding day. Back when weddings were more of a business transaction and dad's didn't want anyone doing a runner - we are talking ancient history (okay not really - maybe more like 100 years ago).
There is nothing wrong if you want to take either route. Despite it's beginnings, the tradition can hold a lot of sentiment and be special if that's what your heart is set on doing. I'm just here to highlight the pro's of getting ready together.
It’s romantic as heck
On the day that you are marrying your best friend, how sweet would it be to help each other get ready. You get to wake up and share breakfast together and can even use the time to say special words of appreciation for each other. I’ve seen some couples use this time to read letters they wrote for each other, or exchange sentimental gifts.
