We know that for even the most organised bride, shopping for a wedding dress is a serious challenge, to say the least. Even if you’ve been really studious about combing through and bookmarking dresses you love, you’re still going to do more than try on just one dress, and you’ll have to think about the extras that come with it!

It’s not just the dress you’re shopping for, there is a lot more to put together to look like a princess on your wedding day than dress you’ll wear only once!
Here are a few extra’s you’ll need to complete a picture-perfect wedding outfit, from head to toe:
Before for you even go to your first fitting, make sure you wear a bra that will suit the style of dress you have in mind. In fact, if you aren’t sure whether you’ll be going for a completely strapless dress, or one with embellished straps, invest in both.
You’ll be unpleasantly surprised on your wedding day when the dress puckers in the wrong places because you’re wearing the wrong bra or panty!
You don’t have to shop for the shoes before begin with fittings, however, the point is to wear flat shoes or high heels that’ll represent the height you’ve decided to wear your wedding day. Getting this wrong could mean wearing a dress that suddenly looks to short or doesn’t fall the way it should when it’s too late to make alterations.
Yet another important factor to completing the image of yourself as a fairy-tale princess! Choosing your veil way ahead of your wedding day will give you a more complete image of yourself as a fairy-tale princess on your wedding day.
You’d be surprised at how many types of veils there are out there, and deciding on the right one to go with your dress will mean a few along the way.
Don’t be too shy to take photos of yourself in your dream dress while trying different styles of veils, just to make sure you’ve chosen one that adds a that special touch to the way you’ll look when you walk down the aisle!
Remember to try and show up for bridal dress fittings with your hair in the style you’ve decided on, this will make finding a dream veil so much easier.
You’ll need to look at things like length, materials, embellishments and trims as you go through your options, and of course hair accessories will figure into this part of the fittings.
Because different wedding dress styles call for different jewelry, as much as the mood you want to set for the wedding does, try to have an idea of what you’d like to add by way of jewelry along with the veil during fittings.
