6 Things you need to think about & bring to your wedding dress fittings

Arming yourself with the right goodies to take with to your fittings is going to make the pressure you’re already under a little lighter on the way to your dream designer wedding dress.

No matter how professional you may be about shopping for clothes, nothing can ever prepare you for the daunting feeling of finding a stunning dress you’ll only wear once, for the most beautiful day of your life.

If you’ve already reached the point that sees you heading out to hunt for your wedding dress, you’ll no doubt already have a pretty good idea when it comes to the style of dress that most appeals to you, and which you believe will make the most of your beautiful body shape.

With all of that in hand, here are 6 things you need to bring with to fittings & to add along the way

  1. The right underwear

Don’t bring your favourite granny panties to fittings!  If you’re going to wear something skimpier like a G-string, wear it as you would on the wedding day.

If you’re not certain yet about whether you’ll be going for a strapless dress or one with thin straps, it’s worth investing in a good bra for both styles.

  1. Shoes to match

Shoes have a huge impact on how your dress will look on you, so, if you’re going to wear heels on the day, invest in a pair that are the same height for what you’re planning to wear.

If you’re going for flats, stick to them through the fittings. This is going to keep alterations to the length of the dress at a minimum, which also helps to keep stress at bay.

  1. Pretty as a Princess

While there’s no need to go the makeup artist, putting on your best face for the fittings is going to make a big difference to how you see yourself in each dress you try on.

The same applies for your hair.  Whether you’re wearing it up or down, wear it that way during fittings to get the right look.

  1. Think bridal wrap or jacket

If you’re going to have a winter wedding, you may need to think about adding a bridal wrap or jacket to keep your shoulders warm before, during and after the nuptials.

Speak to the team at Ever After Bridal about finding the perfect wrap or bridal jacket to go with the dress you finally say yes to, to complete the picture.

If you’re having an outdoor wedding, you may prefer to wear a light wrap to protect you from the sun or any breeze that may come up during the ceremony.

  1. Think veil or hair accessories

There are more styles of veil than you may imagine as you begin the journey to the perfect designer wedding dress.  This is an important accessory to keep an eye on if you decide that you want to wear a veil. Remember that you’ll look no less of a bride if you decide to give the veil as miss.

If you decide that you’d rather go with a beautiful spray of flowers for the natural look, or with hair accessories that shimmer and glint in the light, there’s a tiara, crystal hair grips and any manner of hair accessory that’ll look stunning on you…and will give you sleepless nights as you agonise over the choice!

  1. If you’re going to toss your garter, double up

If you’ve decided that you want to toss your bridal garter at the reception, buy two, one to keep and one to give away.  Tossing the garter is your choice, there’s nothing wrong with not wanting to do it, but if you do, you may want to get a plainer version of the one you want to keep as your memento.
