A long-standing wedding tradition is for couples to get ready separately and see each other for the first time right before they say, “I do.” Many people still consider it bad luck to see each other before the ceremony, but some couples are bucking tradition and choosing to get ready together.
Benefits of Getting Ready for Your Wedding Together
Your wedding day will be stressful. Even if you’ve planned every last detail and you trust the team around you, it’s normal to feel nervous. Having your partner by your side can help you both feel more relaxed. You’ll be able to set aside any worries or anxiety you might be feeling and enjoy some quiet time together.
On your wedding day, you’ll be surrounded by family and friends who will want to talk to you and wish you well. You’ll be moving from place to place to pose for photos, dancing, listening to speeches, cutting the cake, and participating in other wedding day traditions.
With so much going on and so many things to think about, you and your new spouse might find it hard to spend a few quiet moments alone together. That can make you appreciate having the opportunity to get ready together and enjoy some alone time prior to the ceremony.
The hours before your wedding can be incredibly romantic. You can reflect on your time together so far and your hopes for the future. You can tell each other what you love and appreciate most about each other, exchange gifts, or read letters to each other. Photos of you and your spouse getting ready for your wedding might be some of your most cherished images from your special day.
