You have been anxiously waiting for six months for the arrival of your wedding dress. So now it is here! Here are some helpful things that you should be doing to prepare for your first fitting appointment:
1. Keep in mind… Once you purchase your wedding dress, there is no turning back. Please make sure you feel this is the perfect dress because all sales on wedding dresses are final.
Working with the right consultant is very important. The right expert will have your wants and needs in mind, and not want to just sell you a dress.
2. Your first fitting will be a month before your wedding date. Remember that most brides are working to look their best for their wedding day and will lose weight before their wedding.
You can always request for an earlier fitting date but remember if you need additional alterations due to loss of weight, you will incur additional charges:
A. Getting ready for your first fitting appointment:a. Be sure to check on your undergarment requirement. Will you be putting bra cups into the dress or will you be wearing a strapless bra?
B. Is there enough boning in the dress to give you shape or do you need to get some SPANXs? If you do need SPANX, be sure to take into consideration what style of SPANX that you will need to accommodate your low back, or your hip area for leggings, etc. When purchasing your SPANX, be certain that it is tight, difficult to put on because the whole point of the SPANX is to tuck you in. If it is easy to put on, it is not doing what it is suppose to do. If you are considering a traditional corset, be sure that style of dress will not show the boning of the corset on the bodice.
C. Do you have your shoes? Are you having an outdoor or indoor church wedding? Remember that you will be in those shoes for as long as 6-10 hours. Be sure that they are comfortable. Or, if you need to, change the shoes for the reception. Be sure to bring both shoes to the first fitting. The shoe height on both should not differ more than half an inch.
D. Your first fitting is where you should bring all your accessories that you have to make sure that they match with the dress. Regarding accessories, the shine factor of the various stones will differ so we need to have you try on everything to make sure that one piece of jewelry does not stand out. It should all blend to accessorize your gorgeous wedding dress.My wish is for you is to have a smooth, fun, and productive first fitting. I hope that these points will help you to accomplish this.
