Follow these tips to be prepared for your wedding dress fitting

veil1You may be surprised to find out there is more to wedding dress fittings than just showing up and trying it on. Follow our tips to make sure you get the most out of your  dress fitting experience.

weddingdress1Bring your shoes with you. Even if you haven’t purchased the shoes you are going to wear for your big day, bring a few pairs of your own. This might give you a better idea of the hemline you want. If you have purchased your shoes already, bring them to ensure that the alterations will be precisely the length you want, depending on your heel height. If you plan on switching shoes – to a more comfortable flat for the reception, make sure to bring those, or ones similar along too.

Do your hair before your fitting. That way, you can get the overall picture of what you will look like on your big day. You might have an idea of a hairstyle that you love, but you may totally change your mind once you see how it looks with your wedding dress.

Make sure to eat prior to your fitting. By skipping lunch you might think it will help make the dress feel – and fit correctly, however, the last thing you want is to feel sick or dizzy while you are at your fitting.

Go make-up free to your fitting. Some makeup such as foundation and concealer, or self tanning lotion, can stain your wedding dress. Wear clear deodorant to avoid any mishaps on the sides of your dress.
