It’s The Morning Of Your Wedding, Now What!?

It’s The Morning Of Your Wedding, Now What!?

Your wedding day is finally here and thousands of emotions are going through you! Crazy right!? You have dreamt of this day since you have been a little girl. “Well, now what do I do?” You stop and think to yourself, “I am getting married! Where do I start first?” – you almost don’t know what to do with yourself.

It is totally tempting to want to scream and shout in excitement but you also feel like crying hysterically. It may be overwhelming but believe me when I say, I have been in your shoes and it will all be okay. Girl, turn on some music and get ready for the best day ever! The next five things are important to you…why?, because it is YOUR WEDDING DAY!

The Life Pile

Skip The Coffee And Go For Water!
We all want to have our maid of honor show up with a Grande Iced Caramel Macchiato (or the coffee of your choice) from Starbucks while we get ready. Really? Who wants the bloating or the uneasiness caffeine may bring to an already nervous bride? Think about drinking plenty of water with a splash of fresh lemon first. The lemon will help reduce stress and improve your metabolism. Lemon water increases your mood and will give you the same caffeine fix that you are looking for. Try the lemon water first before you go for the coffee.

Text Your Spouse! 
You may have followed tradition and decided not to stay with your spouse the night before. This is the perfect time to send a love text before you see your future spouse later. It makes for getting ready easier and gives you a peace of mind. Look back on the messages you sent and remember the emotions that were running through your heart. You could say something cheesy but cute, “You know what makes this day perfect? Knowing I will always be there for you!”.

Take Your Dress Out Of The Bag!
Here comes the fun part! Take out your gorgeous dress and let that baby breathe. You need time to let your dress air out so it is not wrinkled. This also makes for a stunning wedding shot of your perfect dress. Hang it on a door frame or on the hooks where you are getting ready. We want not only you looking perfect, but your dress as well!

No More Cellphones!
You just finished texting your future spouse, now turn your phone off! Let’s face it you are the bride! You don’t need to be bothered on the most important day of your life! You hand-picked your MOH/bridesmaids for a reason let them take care of everything you don’t need to.  When you turn your phone off, it keeps you from answering calls or texts but most importantly it allows you be present and in the moment. Don’t worry about your phone it will be there when you are finished with your day!

Take A Moment For Yourself!
With all the chaos and emotions running high during this time it is paramount that you take a moment to yourself. Look around and soak in all that’s going on today. You may have hair/makeup for your bridesmaids in one area, MOB or MOG getting ready, the beautiful scenery outside. Its these tiny moments that make a lifetime of memories. Just stop and realize that today is all about YOU & YOUR future spouse! Your life is just beginning, celebrate the love you two have for each other!

Restrooms

This might seem like a funny topic for a blog, but really it’s not.  Property amenities, such as restrooms, are very important to making a business be successful and offer peace of mind to the guests who are visiting our facility.  Also, here at Paradise Falls we’ve been doing quite a few makeovers around the property and this is just some of the face lifts we’re really proud of and thought we’d share with you.

The Ladies room has 5 bathroom stalls (yea!) and a double sink, see below.

The Men’s room has 3 urinals, 2 stalls & 2 single sinks.
We also offer 2 separate handicapped/wheelchair accessable bathrooms, and 1 of those has a changing table too.

Bridal Cottage/Salon

How would YOU like to enjoy the quiet time before your ceremony relaxing and hanging out with your bridal party? How about in our private cottage complete with a professionally designed salon giving you the opportunity to get your hair and makeup done conveniently on site? If YES is your answer, then you’ve come to the right place.  We offer it as an upgrade in our packages and once you’ve booked with us, your planner will schedule your 1st planning meeting to go over all the fun details.  Come see us on Saturday for our “Open House” between 9 am-12 pm and we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Rustic & Chic Table Setting

When it comes to setting the room, the possibilities are endless.  You may want to create a rustic table for your guests, be sure to keep one word in mind: “simple”.  Use a textured runner down the center of your table, keep things low so your guests will able to see the person that sits across from them. After you create a place setting with your chosen tableware, mix in a bit of wood, wildflowers and multi-leveled candles & glassware.  Elevate the look of your design, be creative with it and have fun!

Plated or Buffet?

Which do you prefer? One of the fun parts in planning your wedding is deciding what you’d like to serve to your guests.  Paradise Falls offers menu tastings for all of our booked couples.  Our menu tasting is only for two guests, and our food and beverage manager will reach out to you to get you scheduled up to six months prior to your wedding date. If you have any questions, please feel free to get a hold of your planner, they’d be more than happy to assist you.  Have fun tasting!
