1.) PERFECT ROOM FOR YOUR GETTING READY
When choosing a spot for the wedding getting ready, natural light is the game changer. It’ll makes everyone in the room glow and beautiful.
A well lit room makes the difference. Consider finding a boutique hotel, a small villa, or an AirBnB room, with a big window.
It’s also important for a bride to getting ready in a place with a feel-good atmosphere. It is scientifically proven that delicate colors calm the soul. So rooms with neutral colors are best for getting ready. White, beige, gray, cream – and the whole range of pastel tones is just perfect. If you love the dark and rustic style choose a room with dark wood or elements but always with a window.
Rooms with green, red, blue carpets, wallpapers and curtains reflect exactly these colors in your faces and in your wedding dress. The pictures get a color grade that can hardly be remedied.
2.) BLISS BRIDE = THE RIGHT PEOPLE AROUND YOU

For getting ready choose to surround yourself only with the people you feel you can be yourself completely. And who you feel is honest and authentic with you. Someone who is hectic, critical or in some way doesn’t put you at ease, is not the right person to space around you. Perfectionist mothers in particular are sometimes very critical of their daughter’s appearance on the wedding day. They don’t do it in bad faith. It’s just the way they express their love.
3.) PLAN ENOUGH TIME FOR RELAXED WEDDING GETTING READY

Styling and applying make-up takes at least 2-3 hours. Be sure to build in enough time buffer. You are going to want to take your time when putting on your dress. And it feels so good to enjoy every single moment and not have to worry about time. You may ask for a person who knows how to put on the wedding dress. Take all the time you need quietly and sweetly. Because what you really want is to feel beautiful and completely at ease.
If you are a personality who needs the confidence that everything is working and in tune. Do a dress rehearsal beforehand to put on the wedding dress, the same with hair and makeup.

A really beautiful idea to help you stay connected to your calm center when there are lots of people buzzing around is to create a perfect atmosphere around you.
Add to your getting ready a relaxing background music that you feel is leading you to the right vibration. Amethyst, Rose Quartz and Blue Lace Agate crystals are all good for calming energy. And oil burner with essences – like lavender, yang yang, wild rose, pine tree – gives the right fragrance for the room or your skin.
Also to light some candles and incense around makes you to a bliss bride. In particular incenses, sage, Palo Santo, sandal wood give a real deep energetic cleanse. While doing this air purification around you open the windows and take an air bath. Let go the old and let the new in.
5.) PREPARE ALL STUFF YOU NEED FOR WEDDING GETTING READY
Collect all your wedding accessories that you want to be photographed in a safe place or even better in a box. Prepare your wedding outfit and hang up your dress beforehand. Or maybe you have gifts for your loved ones or your groom. Do these little tasks one day before your wedding, to save yourself time and stress on your big day.
Please make sure that you put on something pretty for getting ready. To become a bliss bride, put on a beautiful dressing gown in delicate tones, made of silk or lace. The groom can of course also wear something chic and like to leave the baggy look at home.
Last but not least – clean up your space. Make the bed, stow away all clothing, suitcases and other items. This will create more order on an esthetic level, but also a sense of cleanliness and balance in your mind.
6.) DON'T ORGANIZE ANYMORE DURING GETTING READY
When the wedding day starts, indeed when the getting ready begin, your organization will be over. You no longer waste thoughts on preparation, diligence, planning, checking.
You are not allowed to plan anything during your morning of your wedding day, give up control, even if it’s difficult.
A good idea is to find a trusted person, who loves to arrange and have everything under control. It could be your best friend, a colleague.

Someone who will know perfectly how to organize and coordinate every aspect of your big day.

BRING YOUR MIND TO THE PRESENT THE WHOLE WEDDING DAY
When you notice that your mind begins to wander, bring attention to your five senses. Visually notice the colors and shapes around you. The sounds that are there, from the farthest to the nearest. The feeling on your skin of the gown or the fresh air. The goosebumps when your groom touches you. The scents that is in the air of incense and natural essences or the perfume of your loved one and of the people who gives you a hug or move around you. The flavors in the mouth of the herbal tea you just tasted or those that emerge from your emotions. Accept every feeling without judging, it is like it is and it cannot be different from how it is. Each step takes your mind to the present moment. That’s what matters most. This is what will make you remember this special moment for a lifetime.
