The question about what to wear to fittings may seem unnecessary, but, the last thing any bride wants is a wedding dress disaster on her wedding day, simply because the bra doesn’t work or, the dress is too short because your heels are too high!
Whether you’ve decided to head down the aisle in an A-line silhouette, Mermaid or Ball gown, short, long, sexy, sassy or classic, there are a few basics you really to need to think about before you start fittings for the wedding dress of your dreams.
What to wear and what to focus on during wedding dress fittings:
Think about it this way; you have a favourite dress or blouse you love and know exactly which bra works best for it, as well as which turns you off it!
The same principle will apply when fitting on a wedding dress. The wrong bra can change the look of a dress dramatically, which makes it worth bringing a similar bra to fittings as you’d be wearing on your big day. In fact, bring a strapless one and one with nude straps, just to be safe!
Many don’t realise how much a bra can effect just how great a dress could look on you. You won’t believe the difference the right bra makes in finding your dream wedding dress!
Make sure you wear shoes that are as close to the same height you’re going to be wearing as possible; don’t arrive at the fitting in flat pumps if you’re going to be wearing heels, or vice versa!
If the stress and strain of planning the wedding has left you with a few circles under your eyes, in the sea of white silks and satins they going to look even starker! Just a light touch of foundation will fix that up for the fittings.
Another thing to take into consideration is that pink lipstick is also going to fade into the background at fittings. Choose a lipstick colour as close to the one you’ll be wearing on the special day!
You don’t have to go overboard in terms of makeup for fittings, just do the simplest you can to look and feel your best in that sea of white and not always flattering lighting.
Whatever you do, don’t use self-tanner as you prepare to go for your first fittings; the stains on dresses you don’t intend to wear will be horrendous….and costly!
Where your hair as close to the style you’ll be wearing on your wedding day to fittings. Wear it up if that’s the plan, or wear it down, just to give you a better idea with each dress you fit.
Once you’ve found and fallen in love with your dress, try to pull it all together, including veil, shoes, tiara and accessories and do the ‘walk’, just as if you’re doing it on your wedding day! It’ll make you feel ten feet tall to see just how beautiful you’ll be on the day!
Another way to gauge just how confident and comfortable you’ll be as you walk down the aisle will be to twirl, sit, spin and dance in the dress, just to be sure you’ll make it through all the hours you’ll be in it. Nothing will give you as much confidence as being comfortable in your dress!
