Wedding Myths Debunked:: Myth #1: The Bride Should Get Ready Last So She’s Not Stressed Out

I don’t know how this particular one is so pervasive.  I was just talking about this with one of my clients:  when I got married, all I wanted to do was get ready so I could get on with the day and see my love!  If I’d have had to sit around waiting while everyone else had gotten their hair and makeup done, and then mine had taken (as it turned out) a whole hour longer than I’d allotted, I think I would have lost my mind.  My experience aside, I also see this bridal scheduling snafu happen from time to time (always made by folks with the best intentions) and the bride is always so stressed out when it happens, that I think it’s worth mentioning here.

So: brides, get ready first.  Getting ready and, in the end, being ready for your wedding day is really grounding. What’s the worst that can happen? You have time for a toast with your girlfriends before the ceremony … ?
