Planning the perfect ceremony and reception is one of the fun parts of wedding planning, but making sure that the night after is relaxing and stress free is also important. Chances are you will be tired and you won’t want to have to make any decisions or choices about anything after your long day. The best way to go about it is to be sure that you have everything planned and in place before the day of your wedding.
Here is what you need to know about making your night as easy and stress free as possible.
Booking a hotel
Many couples will choose to book a hotel for their wedding night for a few different reasons. A lot of people want to continue the special day and not go home to their house. Many want to be in close proximity to their venue or don’t want to worry about driving home after a night of celebrating. Whatever reason you have, there are a few different things to consider.
When picking your wedding hotel, you might be tempted to pick something super expensive and luxurious. If you are opting out of a honeymoon, that could be a great idea, but if this hotel room is just for one night before your trip, consider picking something a bit less expensive. Many couples forget that they won’t actually be spending much time there. You will likely be very tired and will end up just sleeping in it, so there is no need to go all out.
The biggest thing to consider when choosing your hotel is the proximity to your venue. You don’t want to have to take a long car ride after an already long night.
Your pets are such an important part of your life, which means you will likely be worried about them on your wedding day or wedding night. There are different services that will take care of your dog during your wedding if you want them to be involved. This way you don’t have to worry about keeping an eye on them or being sure that they aren’t getting into trouble, but can still have them there with you!
The best way to go about having your pets taken care of during the night is to see if a friend or family member will take care of them for you. This way they can be with someone they know and you will know they are in good hands. If not, there are plenty of pet hotels and boarding places that will take good care of them! Don’t forget to make a plan for your pet so that you know exactly where they are going and where they will be!
What to pack
You will also need to plan well enough to remember to pack an overnight bag! You will want to pack the typical things you will need for an overnight stay, but there are a few special things you will want to consider. Make sure that you pack the protective bag that your gown came in so that you can put it back in there when you take it off. This way it will not have the chance to get damaged. Make sure you pack some decent makeup removers that will get off layers of makeup! Lastly, pack what you need to make yourself comfortable. You will likely be tired and ready to relax. This means comfortable clothes, socks and pampering items.
