As your wedding day approaches, you want to make sure you remember and enjoy all the steps up to the big day. You want everything to be perfect, but it is also necessary to slow down and try to not stress while planning. Some would say the wedding dress is one of the most important pieces of any wedding, and in many ways, they would be correct. Making sure your dress fits properly is absolutely necessary and that is why fittings are there to get you ready for your nuptials.
The day of your fitting is an exciting one, and the perfect time to make sure your dress fits perfectly and that you are happy with all the accessories you’ve chosen. It’s hard to remember every little detail when you are planning your wedding, but if you keep a shortlist of exactly what you need to keep in mind for your dress fitting, you will save yourself a world of headaches. This article will go over why it is imperative to have your wedding shoes picked out and with you when you go to the fitting.
Correct Dress Length
One of the most common alterations for dresses is getting the hem length adjusted. If you don’t have your shoes with you, you could run the risk of hemming it too high or too long. Make sure you bring your shoes and that you try on your dress with your wedding shoes so the boutique and the seamstress doing the alterations can make sure the length is just perfect. You can have them pin it and also practice walking in the shoes with your dress to get a good idea of what it will look like on your wedding day.
Shoes Match the Dress
Picking shoes that not only match but compliment the dress you are wearing is a very important step for your dress fitting. Bringing your shoes with will make sure you don’t need to dye them or change anything to make sure they are in line with the dress color and cut.
While you may love the look of high heels, make sure you are good with walking, dancing and climbing stairs in them before you give them the green light for your big day. You want a shoe that not only looks fabulous with your dress, but that you will be happy with all night long. Make sure you have your shoes picked or have a few ideas in mind that you can bring with you to the fitting to try on. You don’t have to be 100% sure on a style, but make sure whichever one you choose compliments the dress.
Heel height is very important as it helps your bridal consultant and seamstress know how long to keep your dress. Changing up heel height after your fitting can cause you to need extra alterations and will end up costing you more money and time in the process.
Heels can change your posture and how you look in the dress, so make sure you decide on the style and height of your heel before your fitting. For example, thin stilettos are not the best option for a grassy or beach wedding as you will sink in and could run the risk of dirtying your dress or even rolling your ankle. Always keep your venue and whole wedding day in mind when you choose your shoes.
Making Sure Shoes are Comfortable
Comfort is a must when it comes to choosing your wedding shoes. Remember, you will be in these shoes for most of the day and a good portion of the night. You don’t want to be miserable walking down the aisle or saying your vows with throbbing feet.
You Should Also Bring:
Make sure to bring your bridal undergarments to your fitting so you can make sure your dress fits over them properly and you can’t see any outlines or bunch ups once it is on.
Jewelry and Accessories
All your accessories should come with you so you can see how they will look with the dress and shoes. Maybe the necklace isn’t just right or the veil doesn’t work with the dress after all. This will also give you a sneak peek of what you will look like on your big day and just make sure it all matches and flows together perfectly.
Someone to Take Photos
Whether you have a friend, family member or photographer with you, always make sure you take plenty of photos of the fitting. This will help you go over all the steps and make sure you love what you look like after the fitting as well. This will give you time to make any last minute changes and alter anything else you need before your big day.
