I know this probably sounds strange, but I have thought extensively about the morning of my wedding. As in, enough to write three separate blog posts about it. As in, my friends and family are probably sick of hearing me discuss it. Why, you ask? Good question.
I am a firm believer that the morning of your wedding sets the tone for the way the rest of the day unfolds. Are you rushing around like a chicken with your head cut off, snapping instructions at your ‘maids while frantically trying to organize escort cards and simultaneously write a loving pre-ceremony note to your fiance? Yikes, just typing that sentence gives me the hives.
How about this instead: You wake up refreshed after a good night’s sleep. You pull on something lovely and comfortable, and turn on a pre-made playlist that makes you feel calm, happy, and excited. You eat a good breakfast. You actually chat and laugh with your friends as you get your hair and makeup prettified, because you know that every “to do” has been done (and if they haven’t been crossed off at this point, they’ve been nixed entirely!).
This lovely dream of a morning is possible friends; it just takes some advance planning. Today, let’s start with what you’ll be wearing. A small detail? Yes, but one that can really put you in the right frame of mind. And we can’t think of anything more lovely to do that than a special treat from Castelbel & Trumpet, the new line from Plum Pretty Sugar.
Yes, you could wear some comfy sweats the morning of your wedding, and it’s totally fine if you go that route! But we happen to adore the beautiful prints and colors of Plum Pretty Sugar robes, and love how they look in photographs. Also, I love the idea of buying something special for the morning of your wedding, and then being reminded of that beautiful day every time you put it on for years to come.

We’re particularly enamored with Plum Pretty Sugar’s new collection, Castelbel & Trumpet. These lovely pieces were a year in the making, and were created specifically to highlight a woman’s features. With such thoughtful attention to detail, these are truly heirloom designs! You can see all of them right here.
Tell me, ladies: How are you preparing for a joyous, calm wedding morning? Or if you’re already married, what made a difference on the morning of your wedding? Comment and let me know!
