Wedding Wednesday

June 15, 2016

FRUITLANDS-GARDEN-WEDDING-BERMUDA-SARAH-E-PHOTO-006This may sound like a no-brainer but if it was a no-brainer, I wouldn’t be blogging about it! There are a lot of brides who have NEVER put on their dress outside of the dress shop!! I was definitely that person! However, my dress was really easy to put on. I could put it on by MYSELF! It had one simple ZIP in the back and that’s it! However, there are a lot of dresses that require much more than just a simple zip! These are the dresses that I’m referring to today in this post!

If you happen to be a bride who has a more complicated dress, please pay attentionto this post because it could save you a lot of stress on your big day! You need to make time to try on your dress with either your mom OR maid of honour… someone who will be with you when you’re getting dressed. So often, there are brides who are getting in their dress and no one knows how to lace up the back or how high the waist is supposed to be. It can cause a little panic when the bridesmaids lace up the dress and then everyone realizes that the dress if off-centered or not tight enough. When you have to re-lace the dress, this can easily throw off your schedule and then that can cause extra stress as well. Now, when this happens with our brides, we tell them it’s totally fine, because we’ll make up that time! And we always do! However, if I can save my future brides from that panicked feeling… I will!

So my best advice is to plan a time to PRACTICE putting on your DRESS!!! Try it on with your shoes to make sure the height is what you like. Try it with your undergarments to make sure it fits well and nothing shows and last but not least, try sitting to make sure it’s possible!!Happy Wedding Wednesday, sweet friends!!
