Being prepared in advance will, without a doubt, make shopping for your dream designer wedding dress a lot easier than it could otherwise be. If you’ve started early enough with your homework, you’ve probably already scoured bridal magazines and bookmarked wedding dresses online galore, you’re on the right track for stress-free success.
Here are a few suggestions that may make organising yourself prior to your first fittings on the journey to your dream wedding dress a cinch:
The question of undergarments for fittings
The last thing you need is to arrive on your wedding day and realise that the bra you’re wearing spoils the fit of your beautiful dress! And it’s happened!
The right bra makes all the difference to the fit of the dress. Bringing along a strapless bra and one with clear straps is a good way of covering all your bases, and will also be one of the best investments you’ll make towards finding and fitting the perfect wedding dress.
To look like a princess you need to feel like one, inside out. And feeling like a princess begins with being comfortable in what you’re wearing, which leads to glowing confidence you deserve to feel on your special day.
The question of shoes for fittings
If you’re if you’re going to wear heels, wear a heel to the fitting that’ll be the same height as what you plan on wearing on your wedding day. If you try to do the fitting with flat shoes it’ll spoil the visual effect of every dress, even the one you fall in love with, unless of course you’ve decided to wear flats!
It’s pointless going to fittings with flat shoes if you’re going to be wearing high heels, and vice versa. It doesn’t matter if they aren’t the shoes you’ll be wearing on the day, as long as they give you the look you’re going for.
The question of makeup for fittings
Even if you aren’t much into makeup, arriving for fittings with even the most basic makeup is a must! Fluorescent lights in a sea of white satin and lace will make you see every minor flaw and highlight any shadows under your eyes that aren’t normally visible, which won’t help much to make you feel like a princess!
You don’t have to wear layer upon layer of makeup either. Wear just enough to make you feel good and give you colour in the brilliant white of a bridal shop.
The question of hair for fittings
Wearing your hair as close to what you’re planning to wear when you go for fittings is going to add to the allure while you fit dress after dress, and, as with all the above, it’ll simply complete the picture you see when you find the dress of your dreams!
The question of the fittings
It’s a great idea to keep as clear a head as possible when it comes to falling in love with a dress that you’re not going to be comfortable in, no matter how great it looks!
You’d better believe it that if you’re uncomfortable for the duration of the wedding, you’ll be spoiling what should be your moment to shine in every way!
Sit, twirl and walk around the bridal store before you say yes to a dress that’ll make comfort nigh on impossible.
