Next Steps to Glamour: 5 Must-Do’s After Purchasing Your Dream Wedding Gown!

So, you’ve finally found the dress of your dreams! Good job!

With one of the most significant decisions made, you may be relieved that you’re done with the most essential part of wedding shopping. But, before you sit back and relax, you have a few more tasks to actually complete your wedding dress shopping. Let us look at what they are.

Get your wedding dress altered

It is highly unlikely that the dress you buy will fit you correctly. Alterations are crucial to obtaining a perfect fit. Check whether the store where you purchased the gown offers fitting services. Else, find a professional seamstress who knows her way around wedding dresses to do the job. Plan your fitting schedules so your wedding dress is ready well before the wedding date.

Buy your wedding shoes

Now that you’ve chosen your wedding dress, it is time to accessorize. Your first stop should be the shoe shop, as it is a good idea to wear your wedding shoes to your first dress fitting session and get the skirt hemmed to the correct length. You will also have to break your wedding shoes in so they do not pinch or hurt your feet on your wedding day. The earlier you buy your shoes, the sooner you can accomplish this.

Choose your wedding jewelry

Once you buy your wedding dress, you should plan what you want to wear to complete your wedding look. Go with simple jewelry for a gown with plenty of details and embellishments. If you have chosen a simple wedding dress, you can opt for bold and big jewelry pieces. Buy them sooner rather than later so you can see how they go with your wedding dress. You will also have time to change them if they do not go together. If you use a family heirloom, get it out and have it polished and ready for the day.

Get your accessories right

You’ll also have to get all the other required accessories besides jewelry. Depending on your planned look, go shopping for your tiara, veil, headpiece, clutch or any other accessories you may require to complete your wedding look. Be flexible with your ideas on accessorizing, and don’t wait till the last minute to go shopping. Every accessory you choose should work well with your dress and not against it.

Buy the right innerwear

Invest in good innerwear to ensure you look and feel comfortable on your wedding day. If you want to hide any bulges, choose shapewear that will do the job. If your gown is strapless, make sure you find a well-fitted bra. If you don’t want your dress to cling to you, buy a petticoat that does the job. Buy your wedding day innerwear early, and wear them to your wedding dress alteration sessions. This will allow your tailor to alter it to your exact measurements so you look perfect on your wedding day.

  1. Great tips! The accessories and the fit are the two most important that you have listed.

  2. I didn’t think I was going to get it altered after I bought it, but I think I am going to have to. I guess that is a great way to get a custom fit.
