    What a great idea! Did you have to wash your hair after your run? I know that a lot of hairdressers don’t like you to wash your hair the same day that they do your hair ,however, I would assume after a run you would be sweaty….

    That’s pretty awesome that you had that big of a group for your wedding morning run! I love it!

    I went running the morning of my wedding with my runner friends, and it was the best way to start the day. Perfect to deal with my anxiety and excitement. My friend and her groom organized a 5k for their wedding party the morning of their wedding. One of the bridesmaids even made t-shirts with a caricature of the couple on the front. We were all either “team bride” or “team groom.” It was amazing!

    I ran the morning of my wedding. It was a peaceful run through my neighborhood all by myself. It would’ve been fun with friends too. It was a great way to clear my mind, build that last edge of self-confidence before walking down the aisle, and to breathe before the big day really got rolling.

    we ran the Friday morning before the wedding for my BFF”s wedding, and it was so fun! we had lunch and mani/pedis that day before the rehearsal dinner – it was the kickoff to a great weekend.

    I ran the morning of my wedding with my mom, brother, and brother-in-law. It was the perfect way to relax and spend time with my family before the craziness of the day! I look back on that run with such fondness.

    I’m getting married in May (100 days!) and I fully plan to run the morning of my wedding. I wish, like you, I had more running friends but I think I actually like the idea of doing it on my own and just having that time to relax before the craziness of the day starts.

    Did you have a nighttime ceremony? By the pictures it looked light out, but by the ‘8 hours to go’ comment at 9 a.m. it sounds like it was a late one!

      We had a 4:30pm ceremony, so I guess it should be 7.5 hours if we’re going by exact numbers. 🙂

    My mom actually banned me from running on the morning of my wedding–she was convinced that it would make me late or over-tired. So I just went on a short walk with my bridesmaids to relax before the big day.

    This is something I definitely want to do on my wedding day, mainly because, like you, I can see myself being an insane bundle of energy. Unfortunately, very few of my friends are runners, but I might have to weasel them into it anyway!

    My mom, sister and I went to a Zumba class the morning of my wedding. It was with my favorite instructors who I hasn’t seen in months since I moved away from the area where we were getting marries. 90 minutes later, I was sweaty and totally relaxed. It was the perfect way to start my wedding day!

    I didn’t do any exercise the morning of my wedding. We had a breakfast for the bridal party like you did and just relaxed and spent time with family. A run would have been a great idea but I just was focusing on trying to relax 🙂

    Ha! My wedding was so DIY, that I didn’t have time to run! I was busy setting up decorations, then doing my own makeup and my own hair. Ack! Glad you got to run!

    I couldn’t run the morning of my wedding because my face gets really red from running and stays that way for hours afterward. I really didn’t want to deal with that with all the attention on me later in the day. I also got married at noon and would have had a horrible time trying to get my hair done in time.

    Doing something you love the morning of your big day is exactly what you deserve. I’m glad you got in a fun run and of course had champagne after! The bright sneaker pic is awesome.
