Picture your perfect 'Day in the Life' as an Amora Sydney Bride

2:00pm – The anticipation is building, you’ve checked and rechecked your To Do lists, and while you’re trying to take deep breaths, it’s hard to stand still or shake the feeling you’re forgetting something – major. That’s where your bridesmaids come in! Whether you’ve known each other for mere months or a lifetime, you can trust them with lots of the minutiae. Thank goodness! There’s nothing like the time and laughs you’ll share the night before the big day. 

3:00pm – You and your Maid of Honour check in to Amora Hotel Sydney and the reception team welcome you as they hand you the keycards to your Park Suite. Your bridesmaids have already checked into the adjacent room and the bubbles are on ice awaiting your knock on their door. 

4:00pm – After unpacking and hanging ‘the dress’ in the wardrobe so there’s not a wrinkle, you and your ‘dream team’ head to Amora Hotel Sydney’s pool deck. Let the tension melt away in the sauna before an invigorating splash in the pool, followed by giggles in the jacuzzi together as you reminisce over moments you’ve shared. 

6:00pm – Feeling refreshed, it’s cocktail hour at Silo Bar. Will it be a round of Cosmopolitans or something bespoke from Amora Hotel Sydney’s mixologist for the bride-to-be and her entourage?

7:30pm – It’s tricky to choose amongst Sydney’s top restaurants so you give your wishlist to Amora’s concierges who can secure you and your ‘dream team’ a table at that restaurant you’ve wanted to try. Or opt to dine at Croft Restaurant for contemporary farm-to-plate flavours that will have you tempted by every dish.

10:00pm – Time for secret bridesmaids’ business with a cup of herbal tea or a cheeky nightcap while you go over the running order. Team Amora have turned back the 1000 thread count linens on your King beds and topped them with your preferred pillows. Temptation to gasbag and message your partner all night is at an all-time high, but an early night is in order for the bride-to-be. Say goodnight to the twinkling city lights as you draw the curtain on your last night as a fiancée. 


7:00am/8:00am – Open the curtains and raise the blinds to reveal your wedding morning looking out over the treetops in Wynyard Park. Enjoy barista-brewed coffees, fresh cut fruits and Danishes delivered by the time you’ve thought about taking a shower. Remember to reread your vows and practice your speech while your oxytocin starts rushing. 

10:00am – Your hair and makeup team text to say they’re on the way as Room Service brunch arrives. The Amora team wheel in a trolley laden with delicious dishes that look as artful as edible. Even though the butterflies have started fluttering in your tummy, the fresh fare is perfect for something light and satisfying before the primping and preening gets underway. 

12noon – Reception calls to say your photographer and their assistant have arrived. Invite them up for photos as you and your bridesmaids start getting ready. The Amora team knock to deliver chilled bubbles and refreshments.

2:00pm – Time to lift the protective cover and slip into ‘the dress’. Your family have arrived by the time you’ve stepped into your shoes. Everyone catches their breath when they see you as a beautiful bride. If you’re sticking to time-honoured traditions, check you have your special ‘somethings’ – one old, one new, one borrowed and one blue. 

3:00pm – Gather mum, dad, siblings and ‘the girls’ for pre-wedding photos on Amora Hotel Sydney’s sweeping circular staircase as you head down to the ground floor lobby.
