The moment has finally arrived–it’s your wedding day! It’s time to put your wedding dress on and get ready to walk down the aisle. It’s such a special moment, but don’t rush it. You want to make sure when you look at yourself in the mirror for the first time everything is absolutely perfect. So before you put on the gown, make sure you do these tasks.
1. Wash Your Hands
We suggest washing your hands before you even go near your dress. You might ruin your wedding dress because you have left over makeup on your hand--it can leave a massive black streak across the front of your dress when you put it on!
2. Eat & Drink
Make sure you eat before the dress goes on, especially if you are planning to eat anything with color or plan to enjoy some red wine. Once the dress is on, we suggest only enjoying clear liquids and keeping the food intake to a minimum, at least until after pictures have been taken.
3. Go To The Bathroom
Going to the bathroom in a big fluffy dress is really hard, plus between photos, the ceremony itself, and greeting guests, you can't be sure when you can slip away again.
4. Put On The Right Undergarments
With so many different dress styles and shapes to choose from, it's important for every bride to have the right undergarments to pair with their gown. Find out what works best with your dress type, so you'll be well prepared and ready to go on the day of your wedding. Buying the right lingerie will not only help prevent any unwanted lines and seams from showing, but also keep you feeling confident, well supported, and ready to dance the night away.
5. Put On Your Shoes
Whether your dress goes over your head or you have to step into it, having your shoes on first gets you ready quicker. Have someone assist you when putting it on especially when stepping in to avoid stepping on your wedding dress.
6. Get Your Makeup Done
Get your makeup done to avoid makeup stains on your white dress. Makeup can easily stain, especially powders and runny liquids, and you certainly don’t want it on your wedding gown.
