The Ultimate Bridal Guide to Getting Wedding Day Ready in Luxury

After months of planning and excitement, the final 24 hours before your big day has finally arrived. With a million things running through your mind, the fluttery feeling of butterflies in your stomach and the exhilarating rush of excitement, getting a peaceful night's slumber is crucial to you looking and feeling great on your big day! As advocates of self-care in style, One Boutique Store knows exactly what you need to ensure you are well-rested, ready and feeling fabulous on your wedding day! Shot at the picturesque Lanzerac Hotel & Spa, this pristine property is the ultimate Winelands wedding venue for a luxurious day from start to finish.


The secret to enough sleep the night before your wedding day

It is no secret that nerves and excitement don’t always make the best sleeping partners but fear not love birds, One Boutique Store knows exactly how to facilitate a proper night's rest. The trick to ensuring you enjoy enough Z’s before your big day, starts with implementing an easy to follow routine. Create a sleep schedule at least three weeks before your big day. In simple terms, pick a bed time and a time to wake up each day and stick to it, even on the weekends. Doing this will train your mind and your body will naturally let you know when it is ready to wind down. To help get you into that relaxed state, we highly recommend One Boutique Store’s Luxury Soy Wax Candle. Each pure soy wax candle is hand made with love and blended with calming and relaxing fragrances to ensure complete tranquillity. These soy wax candles are available in three delightful scents and we highly recommend getting the entire collection.

A delightful scent with notes of calming vanilla bean.
Lily Rose
Notes of green lily, rose and aromatic jasmine and sandalwood.
Boasts notes of freshly harvested lavender, which leaves a sweet and floral scent in the air.

Let the naturally relaxing scent help you unwind and prepare you mentally and physically for a peaceful night’s rest. The candles are beautifully presented in a frosted glass jar with a signature bridal party label in English or Afrikaans. With a burn time of approximately 40 hours, these candles will ensure countless fabulous slumbers long past your wedding day!

Luxury Satin Pillow Cases
Now that you have some vital tips to prepare for rest, why not optimise your sleep routine with One Boutique Store’s Luxury Satin Pillow Cases. Kind to your skin and hair, you certainly won’t be waking up to any crease lines on your face. Why you may ask? Satin pillowcases are great for healthy skin and hair whilst you sleep. Your skin and hair gently glide across the pillow case reducing friction all whilst keeping your skin and hair well-hydrated. Say goodbye to dull skin and damaged locks and hello to bright, dewy skin and luscious locks on your wedding day. No bed-hair here! Produced from luxe Moroccan satin, One Boutique Store’s luxury satin pillow cases have a soft and delicate texture against the skin and boast the brand's signature piping finish. However, if you are after a more minimalist look and feel, the pillow cases are also available without piping.
