Today's Wedding Wednesday post is going to be geared towards bride's who will be wearing bridal gowns, however, if you're a groom or a bride (who isn't wearing a gown) and have a complicated outfit then this tip will be for you too!
You've more than likely been dreaming of the dress or outfit that you are going to be wearing for your wedding for almost your whole life! If you're anything like me, you probably even bought a few random wedding magazines throughout your teenage years even when you were single just to start dreaming up your perfect wedding day and gown! Now, those dresses and outfits that you picked out back then may not still be what your looking at today but we all know that you want your wedding outfit to be the perfect representation of you and your style.
For a lot of brides, once they find their dream dress they don't really get a lot of chances to put it on except at the fitting and alteration appointments. Normally, the seamstress will be doing the fastening of your dress and may show your mother and bridesmaids how to do the bustle once. After that, your gown will probably be carefully hidden away from your future spouse and you will be waiting for your wedding day to come to wear it!
The one tip that I have for you is to practice getting into your dress as well as bustling your dress a few times before the wedding day! You will also want to practice with whoever will be helping you get into your dress or who will be helping you bustle your dress. This will help cut down on down time on your wedding day and will help you not be as stressed. Now, some dresses are easy and simple so this won't apply to you, but if have a gown that's a little more complex then practicing a few times can really help put your mind (and your helper's mind) at ease! I've seen many attendants and brides who become a little frazzled when it comes time to bustle the dress because it's complicated and they don't want to get off schedule. Having a few practice sessions will help with this!
