The day is finally here, you’ve been planning your wedding for months, maybe even years and the morning of your wedding day has arrived. Here at Gabbinbar Homestead, we will ensure your morning will be relaxed with plenty of well-deserved pampering. We’ve compiled some of our top tips for ensuring your morning is as stress-free as possible.

1. Clear your schedule.

It might be tempting to go out for brunch with your nearest and dearest or even get your nails done the morning of your wedding. Don’t try and cram too much in, just stick to the essentials which are hair and makeup. At Gabbinbar Homestead our ‘Bride’s Retreat’ is complete with salon style hair and makeup consoles making it the perfect place to enjoy some relaxed pampering before your special day.

2. Breakfast is a must.

There’s no doubt about it but your wedding day will be a long day. So, make sure you eat breakfast so your guests don’t hear the rumbling of your tummy during the ceremony. You may feel too nervous to eat but it’s important to have a substantial breakfast so that you have the energy to last the whole day. At Gabbinbar Homestead you can arrive in the morning and enjoy a grazing style breakfast whilst you get ready in our ‘Brides Retreat’. Plus, we will provide a picnic style lunch for you and your bridesmaids to enjoy in our gardens.

3. Surround yourself with the right people. 

You want to enjoy every minute of your wedding day, right from getting ready with your bridesmaids in the morning through to the reception. Once you walk down that aisle you will then spend the rest of your day mixing and mingling with your guests. Start your day by taking a few moments to yourself then make sure you choose to get ready with the right people that will make you feel relaxed and special on your wedding day.

4. Just breathe and take it all in.

Your wedding day may have taken months to plan but it will all be over in a matter of hours. So, make sure you cherish and savour each moment which includes getting ready with your bridesmaids before you walk down the aisle, capturing special moments with your parents beforehand and putting the finishing touches on your outfit. At Gabbinbar Homestead there are numerous photo locations within the homestead allowing you to document these special moments in your wedding album.
