You walk through the front doors of the venue just like you have before but today feels different. All that stress and worry of planning your wedding suddenly disappears as soon as you enter The Eloise. Today is your wedding day and you will be marrying the love of your life.
It’s time to give your to-do list to your trusted bridesmaids or wedding planner. That means no scrambling to make a ton of phone calls and checking in on every detail. After months of planning, meetings, fittings and tastings, you’ve earned yourself a day of pampering, so relax and enjoy your wedding day.
You start your day off by getting ready and pampered in our dedicated getting ready suites. You turn on your getting-ready playlist and spend the next couple of hours singing, dancing, laughing and getting ready for your wedding day. You all cheer as the first bottle of champagne is popped and mimosas are poured. You raise a glass and toast to a beautiful new journey in life, friendship and family. The morning will go by quickly so make sure to soak in these moments.
It’s normal to feel a little overwhelmed by all the love, excitement, support, and the craziness of your wedding day. Take a moment to collect yourself, take a deep breath and relax on the comfy couches. Take time to reflect on the day, gather your thoughts, and take it all in.
After you have enjoyed getting ready and relaxing in our suites, it’s time for the first look. This is something that you both have been looking forward to for months if not years. There is so much excitement that builds up to this moment and it’s natural to feel a mix of emotions. There will be laughs and happy tears. Take this time as a couple to embrace this moment and the new journey you are about to start.
Now it’s time to get married! In the distance, you hear music playing as you and your wedding party lines up. Your officiant walks down the aisle and then your wedding party takes their turns. As you inch up closer to the aisle you see family and friends smiling back trying to get the first glimpse of you. There will be more happy tears and laughs while you read your vows to each other. It’s difficult to describe the feelings of looking into your partner’s eyes knowing you get to spend the rest of your life with them. It’s blissful, intense, and euphoric. Take a second… and cherish that moment. Before you know it, the ceremony will be over and the party is set to begin!
After cocktail hour comes to an end, you and your guests will make their way to their seats to listen to heartfelt speeches that your family and wedding party has written. You will laugh, cry, cheer,and reminisce on memories of your past. Everyone will raise a glass to you as a married couple and give you many well wishes and blessings for your future. You’ll savor the meal that your caterer has prepared and before you know it, you’re having your first dance as a married couple. You and your guests will spend the rest of the night dancing like nobody’s watching, singing at the top of your lungs, and sharing a million laughs with all of your closest family and friends.
As the night winds down and your DJ announces it’s time for the last dance, you’ll think to yourself, “this day has gone by so fast and I don’t want it to end”. You take in one last dance for the night knowing it must come to an end, but the memories you’ll have will last a lifetime. Today, you committed your undying love to the person who means more than anything to you in this world. Cheers to you two!
