Eat Breakfast On the Wedding Morning

You will quickly be swept into the manic pace and craziness of the wedding day. So important to start the day with a good wholesome breakfast ! Perhaps arrange to dine with your best man & guys or family on the morning.

Gift For The Bride

Get her a little gift to open on the morning! A perfume that she can wear for the day and any time she wears it again, it will remind you both back of your wedding day! Or a piece of jewellery, but you may wish to hint at this in advance so she doesn’t also purchase for her wedding day.

Another idea that we absolutely LOVE is writing your soon-to-be wife a letter that she reads on the morning. Remind her of all the reasons why you love her and lots of the favourite memories that you shared, something she is sure to treasure forever.

The Groom’s Speech

Do a final run through of the speech with your best man but it should be written & critiqued to a final masterpiece long before the wedding day!

Grooms Wedding Day Attire 

While a check of your attire should be done before the wedding morning you might like to do one final check. Encourage the groomsmen to do the same, ensuring the shirts are pressed and the shoes are polished !

Once the essentials are taken care of time for a fun activity for the groom & guys to fill some of those hours on the wedding morning!

Hot Shave & Pamper

Head for a real pamper – a hot towel shave is sure to set you up wonderfully for the day !

Round of Golf 

For the groom who enjoys golf playing 9 holes on the wedding morning is sure to relax and de stress him. It will help pass what can seem like endless hours particularly if ceremony time is mid – late afternoon. With the large number of golf courses in Ireland your wedding venue is sure to be near a course. Many of our elite partners including #Dromoland Castle, #Ashford Castle and #Adare Manor are on a course.

Falconry /Archery 

If you would like an activity which will only take an hour /two falconry & archery are great options. They are also very inclusive as can be done by beginners & experts alike so all groomsmen,Dad’s and ushers can take part.


Perhaps a de stressing activity can be as simple as an early morning jog with your best man!


Cue Sports

If there happens to be a billiards room /pool table at your venue or close by it could be an ideal fun activity for the groom & guys – have a pre wedding tournament . An ideal environment to have some lunch and take some fuel on board to get you through the day.

Finally don’t over do it on the Wedding Morning allow lots of time for the dressing & final preparations. You do not want to be rushed and need to ensure that you look your very best !
