Your wedding day is all about you and your partner. It is a day you celebrate your love for one another with the ones you love most. How special is that? Everyone is cheering you both on and want nothing but the best for you.
It might sound silly, but finding alone time with each other on the wedding day can actually be quite challenging. The wedding day is jam packed with so many events and cherished moments with everyone else around that squeezing in 15 minutes alone together is hard. That's why I wanted to talk about the moments you can treasure with your partner throughout the wedding day alone.
1) Leave your phone
Giving your phone to your bridal party or family for your wedding day guarantees you will be present for the entire day. I love when the bride and groom do this, because you can tell they are taking it all in and capturing their mental pictures forever.
2) Distribute itinerary
The most relaxed brides and grooms have given everyone the wedding day itinerary with details on how each event should transition. This is so helpful to have so you both enjoy the celebration. This is so no one has to ask you questions on how something should be operated or done. Many times you aren’t able to enjoy your special day, because you are in charge of making sure everything runs smoothly. Let's make that not happen!
3) Before reception
In many cases, there is time between the ceremony and reception. Take that time for you and your partner to spend one on one time together. This is special, because you are officially married. Soak it in.
4) Grab food and run!
This is one of my favorite ways to guarantee one on one time. So many times, you are busy chatting and saying hi to everyone that you don'te eat at your own reception! You can make your plates and go sit somewhere privately whether that be in another room or area so you can talk about the ceremony and all of the amazing experiences you made together. People will be eating during this time, so you won’t be missing anything.
5) Read vows privately
This can vary on how you decide to approach it. Many do vows in front of family and friends. That is just a special. Some like to be more private and this is a perfect way to spend a few extra moments alone.
6) Private last dance
This one is so sweet and endearing. This seems to be a more recent discovery, and I am here for it! This perfect way to end a night is having one last dance together before you set off on your honeymoon. This is so intimate between you and your partner (and me if you want to capture this moment).
Which is your favorite one on one time and why? Comment below!
